Reflections on our life and lessons in uganda
After talking with Kent and Becca Nolley (thenolleys.com), God confirmed for Jon and I that we are to step out in faith to head toward the mission field. With the in-state training approaching more rapidly than I even realized, I can't help but get more and more excited. In two weeks we've found the team we hope to join, gotten board approval to be Calvary Cherry Creek's first missionaries, built a website, facebook page and email. Not to mention, we've formulated a plan that gets us to the field in 6 months! God has opened door after door after door. Every time I've asked for confirmation He has given it. We still have a lot to do, but He is providing in it all.
In doing all this I can't get the image out of my head of Ugandan children dancing for Jesus as they praise Him. It's like the Lord has put fire in my very bones and nothing can deter us from following His call. Yes, it's terrifying to think that in 6 months we will be heading to Uganda. The idea of leaving everything we've ever known is still a bit of a shake up. But Jesus said in Luke 9:62, "No man, having put his hand to the plow, who looks back is fit for the Kingdom of God." So although this is more than we could ever do on our own, we know that if we walk in accordance to what He calls us to, it will work out. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills; I'm sure he can sort out the logistical details for two of His kids with a heart to share the gospel!
Will post more soon as things unfold!
As always, please be in prayer.
Please be in prayer. The next big step is to finish the application process for the 5 month training at New Hope Uganda. E-mail is hit or miss down there so we are hoping for an e-mail any day with the next steps in the process!
