Moving to Africa - An Adventure of a lifetime




Uganda.

A word I hold so dear.

The country I hold in my heart.

The people with smiling eyes and huge white smiles who draw me.

The children who have my heart around their  little pinky finger.

The soil so rich and ready for harvesting.

The tribes that have never heard the gospel.

The place I have dreamed of moving to for 13 years.

It is finally about to come true.

Weird to grow up dreaming to be a Missionary.

When  people would ask what I wanted to be when I grow up:
I'd smile and look up "A MISSIONARY" I would say.

The strange little girl they thought I was.

But God had put it on my heart.

Longing to work with Orphans.

I remember begging God when I was only six years old.

When I'd say my prayers I began to feel God calling me to Africa.

I remember praying this prayer every day and night.

"Dear God, would you please let me be a missionary to Africa?"

Yet years have passed and finally I am answering God's call on my life.

I am preparing to move to Uganda!

How long you may ask?

Permanently.

 It's where God has called me to be a lifer in East Africa.


I will be going as a Missionary under

 International Voice of The Orphan

For this I couldn't be happier.

If you haven't checked out their site, it's a must!

I will be partnering with A Perfect Injustice

Where I will be working with Abby and David Kkeeto
{dear friends of mine}

I will be helping out in there street programs and feeding programs.

On other day's I will be partnering with other ministries as I strive to learn the ropes of Uganda.

Where I will work with the best of my abilities to learn from my friends.

Where I will learn the culture.

The language.

{Yikes!}

Someday down the road I believe God has called me to start and Orphanage.

For now though I believe will be my time of preparation.

I will be preparing for the future.

I am so excited and I can't wait to officially be there!

Please be praying for me as I step out in faith and prepare to move to Africa!

More details to follow..
