In
  two  weekswill be boarding plane to Uganda!
Picture
have been thinking about my trip and the adventure that lies ahead of me, and I have started to get SO excited! Whenever I imagine delivering the beds to HCCP, or picture being reunited with Sharon, I get so giddy and anxious... I literally just want to run around smiling! Even though I have so many things I'm looking forward to, for the most part, I don't really know what to expect out of this summer. But I do know God already has an amazing plan set out for me. And I can't wait to see what it entails!

Since my last blog post, I have continued to reflect on the verse 1 Thessalonians 5:24, "The one who calls me is faithful and He will do it." This process of fundraising has truly forced me to rely on God and trust in His ways and timing. There have been so many moments this year where I have doubted if we would raise all of the money, but it is during those moments where God has continued to amaze me. Just today, we got a donation for $500.00! Now, we only need to raise $800.00 more to reach our goal of $7,220.00!

I want to thank everyone who has supported us thus far once again. Thank you for helping make a difference in these children's lives. Even though you won't be there with us to deliver the beds, you are still a part of this journey. I think it is so beautiful that hundreds of people from all over the United States have joined together to support these children in Uganda.

As we embark on this journey, I am asking that people will please pray for our safety and health during our time in Africa. Please pray for God's protection. Pray that God may work in and through us during our time there. We will be in Uganda during a time of unrest for the country. We truly believe that God has us going to Uganda for a purpose and we trust that the safest place for us to be is in the center of His will. We truly believe in the power of prayer and we are asking for you to be in constant prayer for the country of Uganda, the people of Uganda, and the ministry we will have there.

                            Bwana Asifiwe, Praise God!
                                              and
                 Katonda akuwe omukisa, God bless you!

"The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet."

It is so exciting to hear how the Lord is continually providing for you Kristin. Your obedience is extremely humbling and challenging as well. You've got people all over the USA praying for you and we are anxious to see how the Lord uses you.

Hi Kristin,

I live in San Diego and have an upcoming opportunity to work in Uganda for two weeks in June with the U-Touch organization. This is my very first trip to Africa and I am so excited! I will pray for you.

My hope is in Jesus,

Jewel
