I am so excited about this trip! It really is my personal testimony of how the Lord is shaping and molding me. I spent close to three months in Tanzania, Africa in 2010 but God did not leave me alone after that trip! And over the past year I have felt a deep burden to return to Africa for a few years as a missionary. Finally I was not able to ignore the still, small voice of God in my life anymore. This past March I began making mental and practical steps toward returning to do what I feel God has created me for: to work with the orphaned.
But where? Africa is such a large place! Slowly the Lord began bringing into my mind and heart the country of Uganda. This is such a testimony of His direction for me!
But where in Uganda will I go? Recently I have been connected, through my college, with Pastor Jim Crockett from Hendersonville, Tennessee. At the end of August Pastor Jim and team will travel to Uganda and work with missionary couple Jim and Michelle Telman who are working with orphaned children.
I am joining their team to Uganda for a very specific purpose:
-A Catalyst to Catch the Vision.
My time with Pastor Jim’s team will be spent learning the Telman’s vision for the orphaned. But I am also going to also use my time in Uganda to visit other ministries geared to the orphaned and needy to see different visions, but also learned where I might fill a need for the next few years.
There are a couple of different ministries I am looking into so please pray about that! But also, pray for the finances to come together. I need to raise a good bit of money and I cannot do this on my own! I know God wants me to go on this trip so I know that He will bring the funds together. I'm praying for His people that want to step in and be a part of this exciting journey.
