Amanda Pedraza's Fundraiser:

From Ohio to Uganda with LOVE

I have graciously been blessed to receive an opportunity to travel to Uganda! God calls ordinary people to do extraordinary things. It's time that I step out of my comfort zone and fully expose my heart to the needs of others. Needless to say, I am excited to experience what lies ahead!

The plans of this trip are endless. First, I will be requesting God to give me his eyes, love, and heart. I’m certain God will change my life greatly as a result of stepping out to obediently serve Him. I will be working at Sangaalo Baby Cottage and I will get the opportunity to see the heart of Uganda through the eyes of the children that live there. I will love on and care for the children that live at the cottage as well as be an encourager to the staff. I will also be helping to look for land to rent/buy to build a home for the older children that age out of the cottage. The home that will be built on this land is a necessary step to ensure that the older children complete their schooling and don't turn to a life of prostitution and/or corruption. This home will give them a fighting chance!

While God has opened up a door for me to develop a greater heart of compassion for all His people, the awesome part is that you will be able to share in this compassion in several ways. First, you can pray for my team and I. We will need prayers that God will prepare us to love recklessly and bless our efforts as we minister to the people of Uganda. We will also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. At this time we each need to raise $3,000 each to attend this trip, and that is quite a challenge!

Another way you can be involved is to help provide that financial support. Would you consider supporting me with a small donation? It will only take a few clicks of your mouse and roughly 30 seconds of your time. Whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, I want you to know that all of your support is very much appreciated!
