In just a few short hourse, I will be on an airplane headed for Uganda. Jimmy, his wife Beverly, and I are going to visit with my Ugandan family, introduce Jimmy and Beverly to the ministry there, and to do tons of training for pastors and their wives. Arise Africa (the Ugandan organization that we partner with) has over 200 hundred churches under their care that they have planted in the last 10 years or so. We are going to meet the pastors of every single church and provide them with training and encouragement. We are also going to visit the orphanage that Arise Africa is building that we (as a church) have supported financially.
Last year, we took the very first Journey Church team to work in Uganda. Now we are going back with a small team, and plan to return with a larger team in October of this year. God is doing great things in Uganda, and it is an awesome thing to get hooked up with what he is already doing. When we returned last year, I posted a highlights video on this blog. I'm posting it again here for those of you that have never seen it. By the way, the music is from Josh and Tasha Via's CD, "The Healing."
You should buy it.
Lastly, our access to internet will be extremely limited. I will post as I am able. Continue to check back here for updates!
