I have been blessed!

In short, I was blessed to join a short term missions team to minister to the Acholi people of Northern Uganda this past week! Despite years of war, rebel activity and famine, these people have a joy like no other--it only comes from Jesus! And of course, I visited an orphange and fell in love with a child. Lord willing, he will be joining our family very soon--pray for him. His mother was killed by the rebels and his father died of an unknown illness... I will post photos in the next few days.

Congratulations! How exciting!
My sons were in No Uganda with the acholi people as they worked for a time with a group called Invisible Children.

We are so thrilled for you! Can't wait to read more about him and see pictures!

Praise the Lord!
