Emily's Year in Jinja, Uganda

     This upcoming 2018-2019 school year, I have been given the incredible opportunity to go back to Jinja, Uganda to serve as a Year-Long Preschool Intern with HEAL Ministries at The James Place. The mission of HEAL Ministries is to empower & resource vulnerable, abandoned women & children in Christ-centered holistic programs that teach sustainability & family preservation. To learn more about this incredible organization, check out http://www.heal-ministries.org/

     The Lord has been so faithful in leading me to this amazing opportunity to be a small part of serving his precious little ones in the preschool and working to empower local teachers. To learn more about my heart for the children of Jinja and the work God is doing through HEAL Ministries there, you can read my blog from last summer at  emilysadventuresinuganda.wordpress.com       

     I am so humbled that God would allow me to be a part of what he is doing in Jinja, Uganda, but so excited to walk on this journey with Him! As I prepare to serve in Uganda next year, I have to raise $11,000 in order to cover air fees and living expenses while I am over there. I am currently working a part-time job at a local pizza place in Greenville, SC (in addition to full-time teaching) to raise as much of it on my own that I can, but I would love any support as I pursue the Lord’s call, whether that is through prayer or financial giving.

     If you would rather support me through writing a check (and receiving a tax deduction and tax letter), they can be written to HEAL Ministries (ATTN: Emily Carpenter) and mailed to me so that I can keep up personally with the amounts that will be credited to my account! Message or contact me to get my home address! 

Thank you for joining me in the journey! I appreciate it more than you know!
