2 and counting! And other news...

We have 2 definites for the missions trip in August, which makes 5 of us so far, along with the people in Uganda who will be helping with the sports camp! So excited - and I'm praying for a coach-type person to come, who knows how to organize drills and exercises and such. Please pray with me! There are several people praying about the trip who fit this description, but God will send those He has called, and I don't want to get ahead of him. (Maybe this is His way of introducing me to sports camp leadership!)

Time is really moving ahead fast. Ryan will be going to Uganda for Spring Break to do work on her honors thesis, which is about Ugandan NGOs, and US non-profits working in Uganda. She'll have a quick and very busy trip, interviewing at Fathers House, Ray of Hope, Hospice Jinja, Arise Africa, and maybe the Amani Babies Cottage. Zeke and I head back in March also, leaving here March 20, stopping in London, and arriving in Uganda March 24. I will be headed to Jinja also, as well as continuing our great work in Namuwongo with Ray of Hope - including looking at their new (pending) building!

In other GREAT news, the school's first block will be roofed and finished by the end of January, and they are expecting to start schooling in February!  We still need MUCH help in the form of donations and school fee sponsorships, so contact me if you are interested.

Thank you all for your continuing support, thoughts and prayers!
