Good morning! 😘😘
Wow! We are feeling so blessed by God because of you! Thank you for praying, writing, encouraging and LOVING us. We feel so covered by you and FULL! Thank you, Lord and Savior, Jesus!
We’re on the Nile River on safari for a few days decompressing and debriefing! Emotional moments catch me by surprise. I tear up thinking of you at home and especially our family. We miss you and pray that the Lord Jesus is filling you full of His Spirit! Our prayer is that you are faithful to His Word, encouraged by each other and that He is using you greatly!
I was lying in bed this morning and thinking about the past couple of weeks and the wonderful people we’ve met, those we’ve served and encouraged.
We’ve heard stories of desperation from the Sudanese refugees, as there are just not enough resources to support them and their families at the camps.
I think about the women I labored with and delivered their babies, one was a cesarean delivery, but such an honor to be with them!
I think about the conditions at the clinics and hospitals… the lack of supplies and equipment, the flies…😳 It’s hard to imagine, an operating room with windows busted out.
(Don’t think about it if you’re medical!)
Someone remind me of this if I start to complain!!
I’m looking forward to the birth center opening in Iganga! (sp?) It will be amazing! God is so good!
I think of the children/ babies and the high mortality rate here! It breaks my heart!
I especially think of those who made decisions to follow Jesus, hearing the message for the first time! The church asked us to pray for them that the seeds of the Gospel would take root and bear fruit and would not be snatched away! The local churches have committed to following up with the new believers.
But I also think about the Ugandan Christians here and their JOY in the Lord and the LIVELY times of worship we’ve shared and how rich they are in faith!!
God is SO faithful and so we pray and lift them up to Him! 🙏🙏
We are in awe of God’s creation! It is truly magnificent! Did we tell you that almost every night we’ve seen the Milky Way Galaxy?? 🤗 Pretty incredible!
We’re looking forward to being home and hearing all the news from YOU!!
May the Lord Jesus bless you, keep you, fill your hearts with His grace, love, mercy and favor!
In love and prayer!
