Last week, I read the book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, by Donald Miller. I highly recommend this book to everyone - it is about writing a better story for our lives. One quote from the book specifically stuck out to me, because it reminded me of where we're at in our fundraising for our "Love Uganda T-Shirts." The quote says, "What I learned most from the movie being funded was that there are certain stories you simply can't make happen by yourself. The movie had always belonged to me, Steve, and Ben, but we were not powerful enough to bring it to life. In order to make the story happen, we had to give it away, we had to ask for help, and when you ask for help, you are asking other people into the story with you, so it's no longer just yours, it belongs to the community that believed in it with you."

Right now, we are in the midst of the fundraising process for our "Love Uganda T-Shirts" where we are asking our community to join in on our story. We leave May 23rd and still need to raise around $2,200.00. We can't do this alone. I believe God and community are meant to work together to bring God's kingdom to this broken world. So my question is... Will you join in on our story and help us get these children their first beds? Will you purchase a t-shirt, donate to our cause, or support us in prayer?

We want to be obedient to serve God and love the orphaned and poor that are so dear to Him. We are asking you to join us in loving those that God so dearly loves. 

If you are interested in ordering a shirt for $10.00 or want to donate to our cause, please e-mail me at kristinklein2013@pointloma.edu or contact me on Facebook.

Also, be sure to check out this newspaper article that just came out about Love Uganda T-Shirts:

"May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you really can make a difference in this world, so that you are able, with God's grace, to do what others claim cannot be done."

That quote at the bottom is one of my favorites. :)
