30 days until I leave for Uganda! In 31 days my team and I will be surrounded by hundreds of precious people to love. I am in awe that God has given me this opportunity to love. I know God is going to break us. I am beyond excited.
I would not be going to Uganda without the support of all of YOU! But, we’re not done yet! I’m asking you all to dig deep to help me and my team spread some love around Africa. There are SO many ways listed below that you can help. We are all the body, what part will you be?
1. Headbands and Bows!
We are collecting as many headbands and bows as you can send! In February the Visiting Orphans team took 1000+ headbands to Ethiopia. We need your help to do it again!
2. New White Handkerchiefs
God has opened the door for us to partner with Sixty Feet
. We will be going into two children’s prisons, “M” and “M2”. Children are held at these two prisons for three reasons: they have been charged or convicted of some offense, their parents rule them as “stubborn” and drop them off there, they are abandoned “at risk” orphans.
When “M” was first discovered, there were rooms of children locked up, young kids chained to windows, and even a 10 day old infant, malnourished and living in her own urine.
We will be doing a project with the children here and need new white handkerchiefs! We want these children to know God’s love and the adoption they have in Him.
We will be focusing on 3 stories while in Uganda:
The Good Samaritan
Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors
David and Goliath
We need Bible books, crafts, bracelets, puppets, anything to make these stories come alive! We’re also still searching for a coat/robe of many colors!
4. You can also go shopping for things from my Amazon Wishlist
. These are some more ideas of how you can help us love big in Uganda.
