Return to Grace – Tata Webale

Beloveds, the loss of interacting with you left a huge void in my life. I apologize for the long deafening silence but as you know, when we last spoke the struggle of learning to wait quietly on God for the how’s and what’s necessary to rebuild life was all-consuming.

So here we are quite some time later and it seems only a moment ago. I hope you will forgive my absence. Radical change is afoot. God has not only restored my life, but continues to answer prayers I had long ago forgotten or didn’t even know existed. This is amazing, and I am thankful  – beyond grateful. There is much to tell, but for today, I want to focus on the most exciting pressing change.

In June of 2014 I met Ugandan Master Percussionist Samuel Bakkabulindi (BAKKA) and we have joined forces to create a global partnership called Bakka2thesource. (more on that development later) Exciting? It gets better – B2S is preparing to leave for Uganda!

For fifty-five years I have dreamt of Africa, and God has answered that prayer. We will be visiting with children at African Orphans Care Association, with Livingstone Kintu, and various churches. Then we will head out to the countryside to work with musicians in preparation for our first documentary (which you will hear all about soon).

I hope you will come along, we will begin posting mid-June. For now much love. With God’s grace and mercy may we meet again soon.

    Beth, it’s wonderful to hear from you once again. I am moved by your humility and inspiration. It sounds like you are off to a fantastic new adventure. Wishing you all the best!

    • Ira, So good to hear from you. It was a long rough ride, as you know (sorry some of the gunk got in our way). Any chance you may want to be part of the board???? Much love to you my friend.

  7. That looks really exciting. Congratulations. I am delighted to hear from you, though when someone is not blogging I tend to feel they have more important things to do.

    • Well hello!!!! Yes – not blogging, it was survival mode mostly and the grind was not really much of a read. Now it is onward and upward with fresh perspectives gleaned from the struggle. Much love to you.
