As most of you know I was in Uganda for the last few weeks. I got back Thursday night and have finally pulled myself to the computer screen to write a blog post about it. I think I was so hesitant to write a post because there is no way to put in words the time I had there. We spent many nights at crusades and speaking at schools and churches about the love of Christ. Just meeting the beautiful, welcoming, simplistic people in the towns we visited left me humbled to a new extent. We were able to see many people healed and released from bondages of sin and witchcraft.
Here is an excerpt from my journal entry from July 28th:
“I am amazed by the simplicity of life here. No hustle and bustle. No distractions from technology. Just life at the simplest I’ve seen it. No complaints. No judgement. Just life, the way it is supposed to be lived.”
I wish I could go into every detail of the trip, but that would be a very, very long post that no one would read. So please join me in continually praying for the people in Uganda and their salvation. Pray for hope and peace that passes all understanding. God is actively working in the hearts of the Ugandans.
Just got internet access for the first time in over a week. We are leaving for the States tomorrow and I just wanted to give a quick update of our trip. We spent time in Iganga, Kampala, and Kaliro working with pastors, churches and schools. We also worked at crusades hosted by Africa Harvest Mission. This trip has been amazing at the least. I can’t wait to share pictures, videos and stories over the next few weeks with all of you. Thank you for your prayers and support while I have been here. Please continue to be praying for the ministries here and the Christians that are spreading the Gospel throughout Africa.
This month has been quite wonderful so far. With an amazing theatrical production and some much needed rest, I am almost ready to pack my bags and head to Uganda for two weeks. I can’t believe it is almost here! Soon enough I’ll be graduating college… Oh geez. I need to stop myself! I hope everyone is having a lovely summer so far. Be sure to stay cool… It’s getting HOT outside.
Just two short months until I return to Uganda. I can’t even express my excitement in words or on paper. It is going to be amazing!
Today my dear friend, Mason Gravely along with Michael Cruz and Jenson Martinelli set off on month long bike tour to Maine. They are biking north to raise money for The Gospel House located in Kampala, Uganda. Last summer Mason and his friend, Paul Austin biked from Alaska to Florida with the same goal. This morning the three took off in hopes of raising $10,000 for the house. I am so proud of them. Be praying for the three guys who left today. I will be returning to The Gospel House this summer with Mason and 5 others from our university to finish the Gospel House. God is going to do great things through this tour and our trip to Uganda!
Mason and his fellow intramural basketball teammate! (They won the championship!)
