I can hardly believe I am writing from the Amsterdam Airport, on my way back to Redeemer House Orphanage in Uganda for 3-4 months. In just a few hours, I will get to see "my kids" again! I am so excited! On this trip, my main goal will be to work with a lawyer to complete registration of our orphanage as a foreign non-governmental organization. Please pray! But there's a lot of other "stuff" in the works, too. First off, we have our first mission team coming to help at Redeemer House on Sunday and Monday, with a plan to distribute soccer jerseys and soccer balls to the kids, and get in some games with them. The kids will love it! I had the chance to meet Wendi and Rick, leaders of the team, last Saturday night at Annie's fundraiser. (See previous post.) What great people, with hearts that beat for orphans! I am looking forward to Sunday, feeling like I will be seeing dear old friends again, and anxious to meet the rest of the team.
I have spent the past few days scrambling to get ready, and so have not had a chance to post about Annie's fundraiser, but I will soon. It was amazing - just like the whole weekend. Wow, did God make his presence felt! Can hardly wait to tell you about it.
But right now - I have a plane to catch. Uganda, here I come!
