Rain, ISP & Disaster Relief

Thank you for your prayers!

It rained consistently for almost 3 weeks in Uganda! I just looked up the weather report, and after about a week of clear weather, the rain is starting up again! Our God is good.

Here is a report from Raining Hope Children’s Home in Uganda. “I realize that everything is high in prices (in Uganda), but praise God that we have never lacked. The kids have enough food on the table. They are in school and everybody is happy. This is because of your great effort out there trying very hard to see that the kids are happy. I am very appreciative on the behalf of all our kids. Thank you very much. Please thank all of our sponsors who give generously to our ministry. Let them know that we appreciate them all so much.”

Thanks to everyone for your prayers, support and love for our children.

I wanted to report on the status of my ISP CBU team! A few weeks ago, I was close to losing half of my team because of lack of finances. I am very happy to report that I still have all 10 of my students! Currently our team has raised 85% of the funds needed! Praise the Lord for answered prayer! Thank you for your support!

Their final deadline for raising the funds is April 29th. They will need to have their full amount in by that date. I challenged the students to pray that their finances would come in this week! Why wait until the 29th!? We want to spend the final few weeks of training not focused on the need of funds, but preparing spiritually and for the task. We are praying for the miraculous!

I would also ask that you pray for me this weekend. This Saturday, April 16th, from 8:30 am-4:00 pm, we have a very special event at CBU. We are having the very first Collegiate Division of the California Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Training! Please be in prayer for the whole event. We want to cover the event in prayer. I will be working with Chuck Clayton of the CSBCDR to conduct the orientation. Chuck will then do training in cleanup & recovery. I will be doing an introduction into chaplaincy. We have close to 100 signed up for the training!

As we approach Easter, our prayer is that your Easter would truly be a life-changing experience this year! You are making a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for your prayers and your love.
