2013 is shaping up to be big!

Time is really flying! How is it May already?? And I haven't posted here in two weeks... Sorry about that! (You can go to the Facebook page and Like it so that you get more frequent updates.) So here's what's going on: I found out today that I actually DO have an attorney working on the nonprofit in the Bahamas, I just didn't know it! Yes, "island time" has a lot in common with "beach time." It turns out, they've been calling the relavent government mi...

New nation, same focus

The planning for our youth camp in Andros in August is proceeding well, and I'm so excited! Butterflies in the stomach excited. When God moves, you just have to go with Him. Make it a point not to ask Him to join you - just jump in and join Him! We are proceeding with the vision we got for Andros when we were there over Easter.

A Missions Trip – to Andros, Bahamas!

Yep, you read that right. Ten Eighteen, up til now focusing on Uganda, is taking a missions trip to Andros, Bahamas.

Here are the details (as we know them at this early date), as well as p...

The last days in Uganda

I am home now, semi-recovered from jet lag (I can, at least, string two coherent thoughts together today, which is a vast improvement from yesterday!). The travel went the best that can be hoped for: long but uneventful. I am back to work (which means I'm a bit panicked!) and hoping to get caught up on everything here in good time. So what happened those last days? SATURDAY: Saturday was a fun day, when we hosted a party for the ladies of Nawezakana, the...

You just never know!

Since my very first trip here, I have had basically no idea what was going on. I mean that in a good way -- God said, "Go," so I came. Every trip since, I've planned out what I know I'll be doing, but God always does something more, something unexpected and amazing. This time, I had two unplanned/unknown things to do: visiting Hospice Tororo, and meeting up with Pastor Samuel Namatiiti, with whom I was connected via a Twitter-only friend. I've blogged al...
