A year ago…

At this time last year we were in Uganda! This trip was the most amazing experience of my life, and I’ll never be the same because of it!

“We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes…” – David Platt, “Radical”

The fact that 8 of these babies are no longer orphans totally amazes me! A year ago we were loving on them in Uganda, now they know the love of a family!

“A Father to the fatherless… God places the solitary in families and gives the desolate a home.” Psalms 68:5-6

7 months ago…

…I was heading back home from Uganda.  It’s hard to believe it’s been so long!

I must say there hasn’t been a day that Uganda and it’s people have not been in my thoughts. Once you go to a place like that you can’t ever forget it!

After watching this video it only caused me to become more and more “homesick” for Uganda:

All I want to do is go back! And hopefully someday soon I will no longer have to just imagine being there again, but I will actually be in the land I have grown to love once again!!

We Suffer from Depraved Indifference…

…But there is a solution to our disease. It’s Jesus Christ. Because Jesus Christ will change a man into a man that feels what Jesus Christ is feeling. Do we care at the level God cares? I’m willing God, burden me!

In Case You Didn’t Know…

‎::32 million people live in Uganda.::

::50% of the population is under 15. That means 16 million are under 15. WOW. 16 MILLION!?::

::Only 30% of the children attend school::

::1/3 people don’t have access to clean water::

::8 doctors for every 100,000 people. 100,000 people?!::

::in 2006, at least 36% of Ugandans were living on less than a $1 a day::

::Uganda is roughly the same size as Oregon::

::There are at least 2.5 MILLION orphans::

So why Uganda???

SafeWorld Nexus Video

(SafeWater Nexus is now SafeWorld Nexus!)

Please watch this video to see what you can do to help these incredible people. This video means a lot to me, because I walked these same paths, I went to this same waterhole, I held the little boy with the bloated stomach and the contagious smile, and I got to meet some of these people face to face! I saw their pain and I witnessed their needs. They need our help!

I’ve also witnessed what it’s like for these people to have safe drinking water. It means so much to them, in fact it means LIFE!
