February Update ~ #thisugandalife

Currently sitting here listening to the wind blowing through the trees, birds chirping and children laughing in the nearby village.  My heart & brain are overflowing. It’s near impossible to truly share what my heart is feeling & experiencing, and what God is speaking to me. {Not to mention what my stomach is experiencing} We have been in Uganda for 10 weeks. We currently have 1 week of outreach with our YWAM team and then we send them off to Kona, Hawaii for their debriefing and graduation. We are so proud of our teammates and children and how they have allowed God to use them in Uganda.

The area we live in is bustling and full of people from Uganda, DRC, South Sudan, Kenya, India and many other countries. Many languages fill the air including English, which is a blessing. I have learned that I love to speak at places when they are translating in 2 languages because you get plenty of time to think about what you are going to say next! Ha! We are in a small guesthouse on the YWAM base and looking for a permanent home. The people are so welcoming here and it is so encouraging to know that they are happy you are here.

We are so thrilled to be HOME finally and looking forward to settling in and having some routine in our lives;) We will travel to Kampala March 1st to debrief and take the team to the airport. During this time we will also be purchasing some much needed supplies and applying for our workers permits. For those of you that have messaged us asking what our current needs are; here is a list of things we’d love to get sponsored:

·      Bed, bunk beds and Mattresses  $200 x5
·      Dining Room table/Homeschool Table + benches $350
·      Book Shelves $75 x2
·      Kitchen supplies (pots, pans, utensils, dishes, food processor, toaster, etc.) $800
·      Refrigerator/Freezer $700
·      Gas stove $500
·      Solar system & panels for our power - $5000
·      Donations toward Vehicle – $40,000

Prayer Points:
  • The landlord of a house just outside the YWAM base to lower his rent so we can be near the base
  • A good price on a Land Cruiser and the funds to purchase (We will need this vehicle to navigate the roads of Northern Uganda & South Sudan)
  • Continued health of the whole family, especially tummy issues
  • Our final 2 weeks of outreach to produce much fruit
