I can almost feel the Uganda sun!

Today is the beginning of the countdown! It is now T-17 days till a Delta airplane lifts off the ground of the Sea-Tac Airport with 16 people headed towards Amsterdam (for a brief layover) and then onto our official destination-UGANDA!

We are joining with Ramos Ministries (Jesus loving, Seattle-based, non-profit organization) to serve, to love, to give, to laugh, to play, to share what we have with the people of Uganda for two weeks (September 17-October 1). We range in ages from approximately ("approximate" because I didn't ask anyone their ages) 25 years of age to 55 years of age. Two men, 14 women. 5 nurses. 1 physician's assistant. 16 Christians.

We will be in Katwe and Kampala. We will do medical clinics, Women's meetings, possible ministry at an infant home and a children's prison, as well as the Destiny Orphanage and School (home to 1000 orphans). We will visit village churches and go on a Safari.

It's a once in a lifetime (though I am already hoping it's not the only time for me) opportunity!

Oh, and all of the above information is tentative and subject to change at any moment---because although we all plan our steps, the Lord directs our paths.
