Update From Uganda

Catching up (9/24/11)

This morning started before the sun rose with Elizabeth waking up and having a hard time going back to sleep. She was hungry, thirsty, and needed to go to the bathroom and had a very hard time calming down. We gathered together at church at 8am and 5:30pm to pray for the ministries of the church.  After the prayer meeting we had breakfast and then we were preparing to go invite people to the Revival Meetings coming up next week. About that time some of the tribe that has been causing trouble came onto the land and Brother Wright needed to go get the police. Unfortunately, I don't think they even came. Becca and the children went to cluckinghen palace to see the chickens while I finished up some of the final preparation for my class. I think jet lag hit me hard today. Becca was up and around most of the day, but the kids and I were wiped out and slept for a good portion of the day. Please pray that the Lord would give us strength!

We haven't left the ground yet and Elizabeth has already called the flight attendant for assistance... I really hope she sleeps through the flight. :)
We have boarded our plane for Turkey. The desk agent blocked the seats next to us so we should have a full row for our family. Paise the Lord & please pray 4 us

Packing To Go... It's Getting Exciting

The last few days we have been packing to fly to Uganda. I didn't expect this to be such a big task. I guess it is a lot easier to pack for one person than for a family. Becca has been doing a wonderful job of getting things ready to go.

We Bought Our Tickets To Uganda

This last weekend was very exciting for us. We were in a small church that gave us a very large offering and their offering made it possible for us to get our tickets this week. Several travel agents had told me that international flights don't drop in price, but the price dropped enough that we could afford the tickets. Praise the Lord for His provision.

Westward Ho!

This weekend we went out west to visit a church plant that will be needing a new pastor. The current pastor's last Sunday will be September 11. We were contacted about this opportunity and felt that we could not dismiss it without visiting the church and praying for them. Our trip to Uganda will go on as scheduled, but we are seriously concerning returning to work just like a missionary would in a small church out west. Please pray for the Lord's clear leadership in this matter. Above all we want His name to be exalted.

Here are some pictures from our little trip.

With her doll on the floor to work the gas and break
and Elizabeth at the wheel I think we are ready to go. 

The rugged rocks that were climbed by those on the wagon train
years ago were scaled by this brave young man in nothing but a stroller.
Old fashion cell phone tower... I think.

Beautiful country!

What a pleasant surprise to see the Fishers and their team!
