Returning to Africa – May 2015 Update
I am returning to Africa this Monday (May 25th). I will be over there for the next six month doing the LORD’s work in Uganda, Tanzania, and perhaps other countries as well. I am returning two months earlier than I was originally planning largely due to the fact that I was able to save a tremendous amount of money on my airline tickets. So everything has been moving at a very quick pace.
I have been working on creating a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization over the past two months. Now, I am glad to say that the work is complete and the organization is official. I can now accept tax deductible donations, and maximize the LORD’s resources!
While I am back in Africa I have a few objectives I am planning on accomplishing with the LORD’s leading. I will be spending more time in Tanzania this trip. Someone has provided a brick making machine, so I will be seeking to get a self-sustaining operation going down there. Once that is in place we will start to build a complex to house and raise the local orphans. We will also be selling bricks as a means of providing income for the orphanage. Our biggest practical need with this operation is acquiring the firewood to bake the bricks.
During my last trip to Masaka we initialized a chicken farm to help support a local ministry that provides for street children. While I am back there I will be checking up on the project, and making sure everything is running smoothly. Our goal is to create enough sustainable income to put the children through school.
I will be sending email updates periodically while I’m gone as well as appending my letters to the blog on my website. I’ll send pictures and details of my journey. I will not be using Facebook while I am gone, so please contact me via email. Please pass my information along if you know anyone who would be interesting in partnering with me in this work.
I am so thankful for everyone’s prayers and support. We truly are a team, and I pray that every treasure that is built up in heaven be multiplied and returned to each of us seven fold.
In Jesus name, Amen & Amen!!!
Please pray for the following things:
- That the LORD would go before me and be a shield around me wherever He takes me.
- That I would be sensitive to His leading in every situation.
- For the provision and wisdom to develop the self-sustaining projects.
