ADA, OKLAHOMA -- It's been almost six months since the News On 6 brought you the stories of Pros For Africa, the Oklahomans who traveled to Uganda on a mission trip. 

We have a follow up now about one of the young men we met on this journey.  His name is Richard Kirabira and he is now in Oklahoma. 

The young man impressed the president of East Central University in Ada during our trip and was offered the chance to come to Oklahoma to study. 

Kirabira arrived in Oklahoma City Sunday night and was enrolled Monday morning to begin his studies.

Once he gets settled in, I'll be headed to Ada to check in with Richard Kirabira and find out about his new journey here. 

And I've written about my trip to Uganda in the latest issue of Mia Magazine.  I share about my journey with Pro For Africa and it features a few pictures from the trip. 

You can find Mia magazine around town or you can log on to the magazine's web site to read the article.
