“I will give thanks to you Lord with all my heart. I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.”
DEEDS = God using YOU. We don’t achieve success without the help of others. YOU have shown the gift of giving and it becomes a tremendous opportunity to bless others!
The VOH team departs for Uganda Tue. the 2nd. We gave you a peek of the projects and the financial needs. And WOW, God must have been convincing you, because you determined to meet all the project needs of the team.
Not just some – ALL of them!
Today this holds true;
“God is able to make every blessing of yours overflow for you,
so that in every situation you will always have all you need for any good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8
This is what the team has to say about what God and YOU have done;
Dale – Thankful for the opportunity to bring the inmates and OTW kids together in a unique way! On Saturday we gathered video from the women’s facility, making it the fourth group to include in our project. Thanks and appreciation to YOU for the new camera and wonderful hardware to make this look good! We are set with microphones, lights, large SD cards and nifty travel tripod! Your interest and action made such a difference!
Sandy – Collecting a lot of letters and gifts from inmate sponsors. Excited to pass these off to the Otino Waa kids! Excited to be able to go to Lira Baby Home and bless the nuns with $200. We also have little crochet items from the woman at Coffee Creek Correctional. We have enough to bless Hope for Humans with $200 as well. This will be HUGE for both.
Thanking God for providing His own timing in funding for projects and blessing us with such wonderful partners here at home!!
Molly – What God has shown so far: the importance and beauty of community. God has created us for relationship. God has been opening my eyes to the community that He’s building during this time of prepping for our mission.
The “hand” project will be a success! This art will have deep meaning for both sides of the world. Thanks to YOU for providing all funds needed to complete this unique task, including all art supplies and postage on the back end as the art pieces go back to the inmate, where it started.
Jehovah Jireh. He is so faithful. Never underestimate how God can do something big through one small act of obedience.
Tina – I am excited to be able to interact with the house moms on a personal level and bless them. Also, to worship God with these amazing people!
We have a special surprise for the house moms. Photos yet to come. What you provided will be memorable!
Thank YOU for the $200 to bless a rural village with beans and rice! Can’t wait to be part of that!
I am most excited to be able to be a part of the whole story that God has put in to place for the Inmates and Orphans.
Gennifer – I’m most excited about spending time at Hope for Humans and going into the bush to meet the rural clans. I have an intense sense of anticipation for what God is planning in the hearts and lives of the people we will be touching.
The women’s bible studies are prepared and we have all items needed for the journals for the house moms. We will bless the mom’s with gifts from the women inmates and small items from here. Thank YOU for including this in your support!
I’m praising God for not only providing the funds for the trip and the projects, but for teaching me to rely on Him throughout this whole process.
“Blessed are they who see beautiful things
in humble places where other people see nothing.”
Would you remember to pray? We would love to depend on you April 2-18. Updates to follow!
