“I used to pray that God would feed the hungry, or do this or that, but now I pray that He will guide me to do whatever I’m supposed to do, what I can do. I used to pray for answers, but now I’m praying for strength. I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us and we change things.”

Howdy Family and Friends,


I pray that God is richly blessing your life in this season and that you’ll continue to prosper in all of His goodness this new year! I have some exciting and awesome news to share with you; I AM GOING TO UGANDA!!!!! After graduating from the Columbus School of Supernatural Ministry in December, I have been asking the Lord, “What’s next”? He has opened up an incredible opportunity for me to go and help serve in Uganda. I have always dreamt of going to Africa because of the overwhelming love and compassion that I have for the people there, whom I’ve never met. There will be a team of 12 of us going from our home church partnering with and serving under the leadership of John and Beth Musagala, who founded Hope In The Land ( www.hopeintheland.org). We will be sharing in their vision of coming alongside a culture of beautiful people and offering them hope…”Our biggest heart's desire is to see people have a love encounter with Jesus. That they would know it's His hand and His heart at work in this place.” -Beth Musagala. Our team has the honor and privilege of being the hands and feet of Jesus!


Our first five days in Uganda, we will be leading a crusade to an estimated 50,000 people or more. I have such an anticipation of excitement in how God's going to  move in great power, and outrageously love on His children in this region. Many salvations in Jesus’ Name, healings, miracles and breakthroughs are going to dominate and overflow in this community. “Jesus” will be known and glorified in this land. Of the five day crusade, we will have three daily conferences that'll be focused on pastors, women, and children. We will be teaching, equipping, and empowering with the love of the Father and the healing power of Jesus. By doing this, we'll be passing on the torch of Christ to future generations that will impact and change the nation. We will also be visiting an adult and children’s hospital where we will be spending several hours with the patients, going room to room praying for them and their families. Daily we will be doing hut-to-hut- evangelism and street evangelism in extreme poverty stricken areas. This will give us an opportunity to reach individuals and families on a more personal level to pray, connect them to local pastors, and help with any needs they may have.


         This is my first mission trip! I'm excited and honored to be apart of this team!!!! As the days grow nearer, my love and compassion for the people in Uganda is continuing to increase...I can't wait to get there and hit the ground running! The love of Jesus is powerfully contagious...one touch, one look, one sound, one scent, one taste of His Presence will spark a hunger and thirst that will blaze the hearts of men like an untamed forest fire, spreading and burning for Jesus…(this is my prayer for Uganda)! Your prayers are important to me and I'd be grateful for your partnership. Prayer is the fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God's promptings and leading. Pray for the preparation of our team that we would be aligned and connected to Holy Spirit and for unity together as a team. Declare that the hearts in the land of Uganda will be prepared to receive His love and that we would have favor and opened doors while there. Please pray for safe travels, smooth transitions, and blessings over the crusade and conferences. Lastly, pray that as we impact the history of Uganda our hearts will also be affected and changed.  


Our team will be leaving on March 12th and will be returning March 22nd. If you’d like to take part in the mission through financial support, please make your check payable to “Zion Pickerington” and write “Uganda 2018” on the memo line. (Please do not write my name). Mail in the enclosed stamped letter along with the Mission Support Form. The cost of the trip is $3,200 (including airfare, project materials, food and transportation) and an additional $500 for immunizations and prescriptions, for a total of $3,700. All contributions are tax deductible. The deadline for funding is March 1st, which is quickly approaching.  Here are three ways you can give:  In person by check/cash, Gofundme, and our "Pick-A-Number" fundraiser (check my Facebook page for information on how to win)! Again, I would be grateful for any donations, but please do not feel obligated to make one. If you 



The fire of God is on this mission, like a force of  nature, and his love is opening up favor and opportunities for our team to be used to release tangle love encounters with Jesus. Please pray for me as I prepare for this mission and while we are there. Pray that people will see the love of Jesus through us and be mightily touched by His Presence. My declaration is that this trip will deepen the faith of everyone involved, change the lives of countless Ugandans, and be a learning experience, that we may walk away changed, as new creations. After my return, I plan to share all that God has done during this trip. Thank you in advance for joining in on my passion.


Love You All,
Joelletta
