Filthy Rich

As Americans, even the poorest of us are filthy rich compared to the majority of the world. As you thank God for the many blessings He has given you, please consider opening your hands to the least of these. You will be blessed! A lot of people are looking for a way to help the 147 million orphans. There are many ways to help. This is just one way to share the love of God with His hurting children. Please consider donating! Here's the blog and video.

"We are having a hard time with money. The costs of running the orphanage and working on getting the children adopted despite being in a inexpensive country are high and we do not have enough supporters."

Uganda....October.....Wow, That's soon!

RIght now it looks like we might be traveling to Uganda around October 16th. That is less than 2 months away! I do not even have my passport or Maclain's passport yet!! I have got to get a move on! I pray that God will overcome my procrastination.

Anyway, we hope to travel to visit New Hope Uganda as well as a new baby home called Acacia Tree (a ministry of Zemba Kids). New Hope is a Children's Center as well as a training facility for people interested in working with orphans. Their Institute of Childcare and Family looks incredible. It is a 5 month program of study and healing to better prepare vessels to bring the Fatherhood of God to the Fatherless.

I am so excited and I can see God working in sooo many ways. I am so thankful He already knows the plans He has for us and that nothing can thwart His plans!

I will try to post more soon. For now you can check out these websites. I just wanted to updated so that you could be praying for us and these ministries. We have a lot to get worked out before then, like fundraising, childcare, passports (as mentioned earlier). So please just pray that we will hear and obey each step.... and trust.

Also Acacia Tree is a Brand New Baby Home and is in need of monthly and any other support. So please consider donating. We have emailed back and forth with Robin who is getting it started. She has been through New Hope and this is the 2nd baby home she has set up. We are really looking forward to meeting her.
