Back to Uganda!

Monday, 7 October 2019 | 22:45

Four years after we left Uganda as individuals, we’re headed back as a family!

We’re leaving in only three short weeks, on October 28th, and returning a month later, on November 29th. We are excited to have two ministries to work with. For our first week, we will be working in the capital city, Kampala, with Engineering Ministries International, focusing on their research and development operations, which aligns with Stuart’s professional background. For the last three weeks, we will work in the rural northeastern region, Karamoja, with the Orthodox Presbyterian Church; there we will be assisting with facility maintenance and educational outreach, all of which supports church planting there. You may remember that this is where we met back in 2015, so it holds a special place in our hearts. In both places, we will be meeting our potential teammates and learning what work the Lord might have for us there long term, especially as we approach this as a family, rather than the individuals we once were.

As we prepare to go on this new adventure, we hope and pray you will support us however you are able. God works through the prayers of his people, and we covet yours. In order to keep you informed of our activities and prayer requests, we will keep this blog up to date. If you’d like e-mail updates, send me a request and I’ll add you to our list.

We are also looking for partners to join in sending us to do this work. We will be on the field for a month, and our cost will be $5800. We are 48% of the way there, so as of today we still need $3000. Progress to our goal is shown in the upper right of the page. And yes, my programming skills are completely rusty, so it’s just text!
