Preparing to Move

The current state of my living room is like a bomb went off! We have totes on every available space.

Liquidating your household is NOT easy! Choosing what to take and what to get rid of forever is quite an emotional exhausting mess! There are very few items that we get to keep forever and even those we have to keep to a minimum as we are not wanting to not pay storage.

Storage fees are incredible, even the smallest storage area is 45 dollars a month! That money would be better off being spent on the ministry in UGanda.

When I start going through stuff in the house I take the time to pray beforehand that God guides me in wisdom in how to pack,and what to get rid of forever.

We are incredibly excited,the kids have made a countdown calendar! Randy and I both leave at various times on May 4th. Randy will arrive in Entebbe on May 5th 10:30 pm and I will arrive May 6th at 7:30 am with the children. The plan is then to stay in Kampala or ENtebbe til we can find a vehicle, and then make our way to Mityana.

Please be in prayer with us as we start our journey!
God to divinely direct us to the perfect house
Children transition smoothly
Gods money used wisely and Biblical
Funds to stretch as needs arise
That our every word and action glorifies God

Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Blessings to all

Praising God

Last week we had asked you all to pray because of a couple road blocks. Yesterday one of the road blocks was broke free! We received our paperwork from the Ugandan Government!!!! How awesome is God! This paperwork simplifies things in Uganda, and you really cannot travel without them, Thank you Lord for answered prayer! Please continue to be in prayer about the second road block.

We will also be having a meeting tonight, no details as of yet, but please pray thatall goes according to Gods perfect will.

On another note, please join us March 27, as we will be giving a presentation at Canyon West Worship Center.Please pray hearts are opened and God will move.

This whole journey so far has been about trusting God completely! Today I come to all of you and humbly ask for your prayers. We have run into a few road blocks, but nothing God cannot fix! So I ask you all to pray for these road blocks to be completely undone, and that we continue to walk within the Lords will for HCU and that everything we do glorifies Him. Thank you all very much for your support!

Last Visit

Randy and I with the children traveled to Nebraska this week to visit our families and friends for a last visit before we take off to Uganda.

We were very happy to see them all, but it was also bittersweet. Knowing that this would be the last time we see them for a few years. We visited my 91 yr old grandma, who is looking and doing fabulous! I had to deal with a range of emotions leaving her house. We had to say goodbye to my daughter and grandson, as she is building her life here.

We know we are doing what God wants us to with our lives, but that doesnt make it easier to say gbye to those we love! Leaving my mom and sisters was also hard. We will miss everyone very much.

In the midst of wanting to start crying and hold myself a nice pityfest, God reminded me that following Him is not always easy, I am sure it wasnt easy for the disciples to leave their families either, but that a life of obedience is what He wants from us as His followers. I canceled the pityfest and went to praising Him!

On a high note, we were able to have a visit this morning with a beautiful couple! This couple had a huge role in who i am today and who i will become! We had lunch together today, what a wonderful morning! My whole family was very blessed. Praise God for wonderful friends!

Blessing to you all!
