Mission Trip to Uganda

For the past 5 years I have become increasingly involved at our church, The Crossing. As my relationship with God has grown, so has my desire to serve. I decided to get more connected and joined a small group. This led to taking our “Go University” workshop and learning about all our partner churches around the world in Vietnam, Uganda, India, El Salvador, and Mexico. I next decided to sponsor a child in Uganda- an area suffering due to poverty, malnourishment and AIDS. This decision made me feel proud, and I continued on with my regular daily activities until I started to feel a tug at my heart to still do more.
For a little over 3 years now I have gotten to know our sponsored child, Nuwamanya Patience, through our letters and photos that we share. This year, God has put this yearning on my heart to travel for a reason: to go and meet our sponsored daughter, Patience. In March I signed up to go on the annual mission trip to Uganda, through our church. So, in September I will make a 14 day trip with 10 of my fellow Outreach Team Members.
While I am excited to see what God has in store for me on this trip, I am also a bit nervous. This trip will take me completely out of my comfort zone. It will require vaccines-and for those of you who really know me know how fearful I am of needles; it will require leaving my two beautiful children for 14 days; it will require time off work; Nevertheless, I am positive that God will get me through my fears and guide me on this journey into another culture. I cannot wait to see how this experience will allow me to grow as a person, friend, wife and mother.
I write this letter to invite you to become a part of my journey through prayer for the whole team and our families as well- also the children and ministry we will be visiting. Please pray for our safe travels and that the team will be obedient in serving the way God has called us to serve this community.
I also write to request your financial partnership in this mission. The cost for this trip is an estimated $3000 per person. I would like to thank you in advance for your sponsorship. A gift of any amount will contribute to our success!
