When we were in Gatab, we found luggage in the middle of the desert.  We were driving from Gatab down to Nairobi and spotted a little laptop case in the middle of a lugga, a dry river bed.  I wrote about it here: http://jsmundy.aimsites.org/2008/12/08/lost-luggage/ .

Well, we found some more!

I was in Juba on Tuesday doing a flight for Christian Mission Aid, and while waiting for passengers and cargo  I was walking around the airplane. In the grass behind the parking area I noticed an ethernet cable in a ziplock bag. Then another one. Hmmm.  Then another plastic bag.  This third plastic bag contained an Outback products Mate, the control head for their inverters and charge controllers.

Cool! I have a spare controller for our inverter and charge controller.  Then I got to thinking.  This is familiar.

Back up to the week before.  I’d brought an Outback inverter, charge controller, hub, and Mate from Entebbe to Juba to give to another charter company to send on to Kapoeta for a missionary there the next day.  I put the equipment in the other company’s truck, and flew off.  My best guess is that during the course of loading the plane the next day the mate box spilled into the grass and went unnoticed, and probably got blown open by prop blast when the plane taxied out, leaving cables and mate laying near the ramp area.

The Mate is on its way to Nairobi in our caravan.  The missionary it belongs to is there for a few days and we’ll drop it off where he’s staying.

God knew where it was all the time, of course.  I parked not 10 feet away, in the only open parking spot on the ramp.  AIM Air – we find luggage because God leads us right to it.
