Giving up...

"For the truths sake, which dwells in us, and shall be with us forever."  
2 John 1:2

The Lord has recently asked us to give up all of this...

for this.

For the sake of this...

 and this!

Please lift up our little tribe as we make this major ministry transition.

P.S. Our new huts are 100% local.  We are still patiently waiting on the Lord to build our earth bag huts. We believe that by living in local huts we will be able to save what we would have spent on rent to continue on our permanent earth bag homes.

Love your hearts in this...Much I could say but I am sure you already know. It's not a fair trade to give up that which is temporary for that which is eternal. But it is a great trade!

that's a lot to give up. i can't even imagine, but you already know that we can't out give God. you will receive infinitely more on this "trade" that any human could ever think or hope.

I think your new place looks awesome, Summer. What a witness your love for the people of Uganda is. "To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some." I Cor. 9:22

Praise God for people like you and your family. We love you guys, and hope to see you soon.

Love, Charlene and John
