Being Led: To Uganda
Like this little fellah, I'm so often resistant to leadership and being led in general. Welp. Today I leave for a two week trip to Uganda. Why Uganda? Well, I have fallen in love with the orphans of Africa that have found forever homes here in the states, and the Lord led to me travel there with some sweet friends. Yep, it's as vague and as simple as that. Hah. It isn't easy, I'm sure, to understand my desire to hop on a plane (don't love being trapped in a tube with folks who could get airsick), ride in a car for 3 hours (again, nausea and wrong side'a the road) in a land where I've gotta take my Malaria meds daily...or well, ya know...but hey. God is good and he's given me the opportunity to go, the skills to tell stories and a heart that loves people. This trip is totally against my grain. On short notice I adjusted and went with it. On a skinny bank account, the Lord provided exactly what I needed. Exactly. Without a plan, I'm traveling to photograph and tell stories. What story? I don't know. Me without a plan? Yep. That's what I think, too. But I'm trusting in the Lord to lead me. Pray for us.
Feel free to continue to be in contact - I will have limited email, but Suzanne ( firstname.lastname@example.org , if ya need her! ) will take great care of ya'll when I can't. See you soon, with much to say and share, I'm sure! Here's to enjoying opportunity, a calling, limited communication and long plane rides. It's gonna be sweet, my friends!
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
