And we're off!

I truly cannot believe that tomorrow is when I will be heading to Uganda. It still feels as though I should have a month to get everything together, mentally prepare myself...I don't know. I feel as though now should be the time that I am prepared to just trust God and let Him do the work that He does best (which is everything) but for some reason I am feeling even more controlling.

Please be praying over this next week for flexibility in the schedule and my disposition to be ok with that. It's a mission trip, so something will go wrong. (If you haven't been on a mission trip, sorry to burst that bubble!) But please pray that it's not TERRIBLY awful what happens and that I'm able to just brush it off.

Please also be praying that, as a group, we are bold for Christ. As well as the distribution of 220 beds, we will be sharing all that Christ has done for us. Please pray that we let God speak through us and that the people that we speak to are receptive.

Also, pray that we have fun and grow together as a group! This is so important to show that the Church grows TOGETHER. Time and distance don't separate us.

If you would like to stay up to date on our journey, feel free to go to Sweet Sleep's Blog. We will be updating twice daily on what we see, impacting stories, and all that we learn. You can also know how to pray for us while in-country from Sweet Sleep's Blog.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has prayed, donated, or just read my journey to this moment. It really has been a journey that I could not have done without any of you!
