Eli's trip to Uganda

Organized by: Elisha Hodgson

THE STORY:

Almost halfway through my college career I have begun to ask myself what my true purpose in this world is. I am currently pursuing a Business Administration degree in Paul College at the University of New Hampshire, and God has put it on my heart to discover the applicability of that degree in His plan. Over the past three months God has completely transformed my life and opened my eyes to the evil and hardship still present in the world, but also the strength of His love. I have since looked for opportunities to make a difference through a God centered organization, and God has opened the door for me to go on a three week mission trip to Uganda with ChildVoice International. On this three week trip in June I will be accompanied by eight other student-athletes from UNH with the mission to rebuild a broken community of women and children who have experienced the atrocities of warfare. We will be working in unison with Ugandan college students to assist in the reintegration of former child soldiers and prisoners of war back into society. Despite the horrific destruction left in the wake of the civil war brought on by Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army, God is using ChildVoice to reconstruct the lives and hearts of these individuals. First and foremost I ask for support through your prayers for our group and the people of Uganda. Time and time again God has used prayer as a powerful weapon, and while we are in Uganda your continued support through prayers will be invaluable. Next, I ask for your support through funding. Going on this trip is not a given, and the expenses I face require support from friends and family. I pray that if God puts it on your heart to give to this mission you would be willing to do so. Any donations are greatly appreciated. If you wish to give the tax-deductable way follow this link http://childvoiceintl.org/donate-now/. Thank you SO much for taking time out of your day to read this. If you have any questions about the trip PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone call. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your support! :)

Very happy for you, Eli, that you've found a path that fits who you are. You were so right to take the time to discern that before you moved forward. May Uganda offer you many lessons and an even broader view of this beautiful world we live in. 2 years ago

This is a friend who is impressed and inspired by your willingness to get out of your comfort zone and show the love of Jesus to those who may not otherwise experience that from other people. Jesus didn't come into the world to teach us to live comfortable lives... You've challenged me to find a way to throw myself out of my comfort zone in a way that shows love to the less fortunate of the world. Love you Eli! 2 years ago
