Isaiah 6:8-Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,"Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"And I said, "Here I am. Send me."
Dear family and friends,
In 2013, I will be traveling to Africa for 10 days to serve God and His people. I am requesting your support for this journey. I am very happy to share with you some of the details of this upcoming trip.
Agape Uganda Community Center is an organization located in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. The Agape home houses 17 children who were abandoned. The home provides love, a safe place to live and an opportunity to go to school. The mission of the center is to improve the wellbeing of the orphaned and vulnerable and pray for transformed lives that only God and hope in the Gospel can provide. The children are shown the hope of the Gospel and begin to encounter restoration and healing through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The purpose of the trip will be to reflect Christ to the children and the Uganda community and be able to share the Gospel. We plan to participate in community outreach with the center, worship with the children and take them on special field trips. Also, we would like to bring encouragement to the Ugandan people that minister to these children full time. I look forward to new relationships that will be made as we work toward the goal to be salt and light in Uganda and glorify His Great Name. I expect to return from the trip able to advocate for the oppressed and those who experience injustice with greater passion. I expect to encounter the presence of God and the beauty of the Gospel in the middle of the desperate circumstances of the children. I hope to have a greater understanding of the character of God and grow in my faith.
I am excited about the opportunity and experiences that lie ahead. As you can imagine, a trip like this requires financial and prayer support from a number of people. If you wish to keep up with trip preparation and encounters through the journey, I will be blogging at www.intotheglorious.blogspot.com I hope to be able to convey the journey so that through partnering, you can also experience the joy that comes through serving a Great God! Thank you for your time, support, and partnership.
