The Ugandan Dream - December 22, 2014

Christmas is only a few days away!  We are currently just under $40,000 towards our $120,000 goal!   We need at least $60,000 to move into the new home in January.  By faith, I booked a flight to Uganda leaving January 14, 2015 believing that we will have all we need.  This trip will be January 14-23, 2015 specifically to move into the new house and set up our shift in ministry.  Godfrey has already been visiting all our families and the potential schools.  I am excited to see the new things that are exploding around us come together to bring glory to God!   

I have been listening to a lot of Christmas music this week in preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus!   A song by Israel Houghton, “Least of These / Put a LIttle Love in Your Heart” has me filled with joy.    You can google the title of this song and find it to actually listen to it.  It is on the “Timeless Christmas” CD by Israel Houston, New Breed.  But here are some of the words...

“In the land of the free
There's more than enough
Dreams become reality
But not for everyone
In the home of the brave
Hear the song of liberty
Yet we still have slaves whose
Master is Hunger and poverty

For those who lack
We have a reason for giving back
This Christmas season
Make a decision for love

Love to least of these
True generosity
Is the heart of Christmas
Love love to the least of these
Everyone has a key
To unlock somebody's dream
So remember this holiday
Someone has made a way
For you to receive
So give to the least of these

Make a decision for love

What you've done for the least of these
You've done for me

Think of your fellow man
Lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heart

You want the world to know
We won't let hatred grow
Put a little love in your heart
And the world will be a better place
For you and me
You just wait and see

Put a little love in your heart
Everybody put a little love in your heart.”
