Dear Family and Friends!
Only 11 days to go! It's hard to believe we will soon be embracing the precious people of Uganda. I remember fondly the last time Destiny Africa (Kampala's Children's Center Choir) came to our church. It is those very children that we will be spending time with and building up with the love and affirmation of God.
Dan and I have received our visa's, our vaccinations and travel medicaitons. Working now on last minute items and packing. To date, we have met half our financial goals. We continue to believe God will provide for everyone on our team!
The fundraising events have been wonderful. The carwash and applebee's events helping our team raise about $1000! We also recevied donated items to sell at a flea market!
Remember to join us this Sunday at the Derry Opera House at 3PM for our Benefit Concert. Come and be a part of what God has been and will be doing among us! There will be a few familiar songs and several new songs written by our team members specially for our trip. I'm still in awe over becoming a song writer...the songs have not stopped but keep coming :)
May God bless you for your financial and prayerfilled contributions!

Dan and I received our travel vaccinations and medications and will be applying for our visa's next! It's hard to beleive that this is really happening!

We have had 2 meetings since last writing. At this point the team is finalized! There will be 13 of us going to Uganda from LifeWay Church. I'm excited to share that there are also a few folks from our sister church in Colombia, Camido Da Vida that and a young man from Spain who are fundraising to be a part of this mission trip!!
The dates have changed slightly to get the best airfare. All our flights have been purchased through deposit and the remainig balance is due September 21.... We continue to move forward in faith that God will help to provide for each one of us!
We have all successfully received our passports and are working on getting our vaccinations next. Yellow Fever, Typhoid and Hepatits plus Malaria prevention medications.
