Friends & Family!
I am so excited to share about an amazing opportunity that I have for this next year! The Lord has opened a door for me to go and serve at Amani Baby Cottage in Uganda, Africa for two weeks! Amani was established in 2003 and they provide care for orphaned and abandoned children. If you know me at all then you know that I love children so this is basically a dream come true and an answered prayer! While I am there I will be able to not only play with and help care for these children but also serve them and show them the love of jesus. I can't even begin to describe my excitement for this opportunity! I was introduced to Amani by some close family friends who have gone and served there in the past! Before the Lord even opened the door for me to go, I started sponsoring a little girl named Sarah who is named after one of my dear friends. Baby Sarah had a sister who unfortunately passed away last summer but I am so so ecxited to be able to meet baby Sarah while I am there!
The reason I am sharing this with you is because I would love for you to parnter with me on this amazing journey. The first and most important way you could partner with me is through prayer! The second way you could partner with me is by suppporting me financially! The trip all together will be about $3000 but my most urgent need is to have the first $850 by this monday to purchase a plane ticket. And the third way you could parnter with me is by visiting the Amani website and pray about sponosoring a child of your own! https://www.amanibabycottage.org/amani-blog. I think we're all familiar with the song, "Jesus loves the Little Children." This song has been a constant reminder for me to pray for these children and I hope it can be a reminder for you as well. We see all throughout the Bible where the Lord talks about welcoming the little children and in Mark 10 we see Jesus took the children into in his arms and blessed them. I know that this is a such sort notice but all the details have just come together in the past few days and I believe that this is what the Lord has for me and that He will be faithful to provide.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and support and if you have any other questions regarding this trip or Amani please feel free to reach out and contact me!
