I didn’t realize, until I met Carrie Wagner to interview her about her book “Village Wisdom: Immersed in Uganda, Inspired by Job, Changed for Life,” that I have been following Carrie’s international career for nearly two decades. While Carrie was in Uganda, I was a graduate intern in Lugano, Switzerland along with Carrie’s childhood friend, Bonnie. Bonnie would receive Carrie’s letters and would share stories about her friend’s time in Uganda with Habitat for Humanity International.
