Had a great spontaneous reunion last night with some of our U4Uganda and Watts of Love team. Although a few folks locally were missing, I believe we were all really missing our leader Father Stan.
When I asked him one time what his favorite animal was he said, without skipping a beat in a heavy Togo accent…. “A LION!” Fr. Stan speaks in a way that sounds like a cross between a exuberant baptism mister and a classically trained shakespearean actor. His tone and delivery says more then the words he speaks.
As a way of thanking him for all he did, we purchased him a paining of a lion. After he opened the gift he paused, studied the painting and said… “I like this painting. I will keep it!” It was truly a classic response from someone who in my eyes, is the king of the jungle.
