what an adventure.

48 hours ago, someone mentioned Uganda to me.

"There's still room on the team. We could use more people," he mentioned and smiled, knowing what this would do to my eager heart.

"Is it too late?" I started counting the days from now til August 21. Surely there was no time left. He smiled even bigger. It was like the heart of God pealing out like a bell when he said, "There is still time."

Here I am, 48 hours later. Someone has just written me a check to cover my entire trip. This morning I didn't even know if I had time to raise the money. Tonight, I have more than enough and have extra to purchase stuff for the kids at the orphanage.

In six weeks, I will board a plane bound for Kampala. There I will spend nine days with nearly 600 orphans, loving on as many as I can reach my arms out to ... and giving my heart a chance to grow in His love.

I can't help but feel God nudge me, lean over and whisper ... See what I can do?


  1. :D oh it makes my heart swell! OH HOW HE LOVES US!

  2. Brings tears to my eyes. I went in 2007 and God will change your life and their lives forever through this. Praying for you on this journey. How awesome!!!!!

  3. That's so exciting! I'm so happy for you!!
