Uganda 2012

As you may know, I'm leading my first short term mission team to Uganda this summer!  We leave in just three weeks!  My team is a large one.  We have 30 people on the team. Our team has some big things planned and we would LOVE your help!
How can you help:

  • Formula - We will be working with various ministries that have a huge need for formula.  When a child is orphaned or abandoned, a mother's breast milk is no longer an option.  That is where formula comes in.  It is very expensive and difficult to find at times.  You can either purchase it and one of our team members can bring it in their luggage, or you can donate money for us to purchase it.  
  • Monetary Support - We have two big projects that we need help funding.  Since food is such a huge need, our team will be preparing and serving a feast for the children and staff at Kerith Children's Home and Canaan's Children's Home.  We will need to purchase animals for meat, fruit and vegetables, drinks and other supplies for this to happen.  Most children eat posho       (rice/porridge) and beans everyday.  Meat, fruits and vegetables are a luxury.  Our prayer is that God allows us so much provision, that the children and staff feel His love thru us serving them and feeding them well.
  • There are many needs, as you can assume, in the various Ugandan ministries.  From land, to vehicles, self sustainable projects and teachers salaries. You name it, there is probably a need for it.    

  • You can donate directly through Visiting Orphan's website.  This will get you a tax deduction.  Please go here and choose the fund category as Uganda July 21 Waiting List.  Then give away!  That's it!  The money collected through our team will be used for formula, food and whatever the Lord leads our team to do.  

Our team will be working with:
Last year, I was blown away by how God provided!  He uses people to get stuff done and He used so many of you last year.  I hope that you would consider joining me on a team one day!
