Works of God Monday

Wow, God has been so good and gracious to us. We safely arrived in Uganda on Wednesday, and while we had a morning of illness among a couple of the kids, we are all healthy.

I am continually amazed at what an awesome God we serve. We have been planning this trip for years (never really sure it would ever happen as our family continued to increase in size). Yet, here we are with two more weeks to interact with the people and minister.

I am thankful for how God has given the kids the ability to adjust to the climate, the traveling, and even the lack of sleep without a whole lot of fussing and whining.

I count it such a privilege to be able to have a taste of my childhood dream of being a missionary to Africa. While that has not been my dream in quite some years I feel blessed to know that God answered my prayer as a little girl to send me to Africa.

So fun to catch up on your blog and see that you guys are right now my "neighbors" -- well, not exactly. But, we're on the same continent. What a blessing for your whole family to get to go on this trip, and with his mom there, you're getting a true peak into life there. She knows all the ins and outs and is very comfortable with all of you. I am so glad to hear that you are adjusting to the time change, tons of traveling, and being out of a schedule. And it was so neat for me to know that you were willing and wanting to be a missionary in Africa and that you have now gotten to come to Africa even though God has chosen for you to minister in the States right now.

I will be checking back to hear more of your adventure!
