It’s crazy—it’s already April, and only two months until the summer. Right now we are getting ready for the 2nd AIDS Orphans Mud Run on May 7. We already have over two hundred fifty signed up so far, which is more than last year at this time. For the Mud Run we have many obstacles, both old and new. Last year some of the money raised from the Run went to Malawi.
There was a village in a Muslim area that was out of food. When our Malawi base coordinator found out, he asked permission to use Mud Run money to buy food for the village. The sacks of maize that were purchased saved lives and opened the door to share the Gospel. We received the following letter thanking us:
We thank God and you too. You remembered us in time of trouble when we were going through hunger season. We did not dream about this gift, but we know the Lord knew someone will help us, He is worthy to be praised. The whole reason of writing this letter is to give appreciation because you have been the people that the Lord has used to help, therefore we need to give thanksgiving to you because of willing to be the good people of listening to the Lord. May God continue using you to wipe out tears in time of trouble—you have displayed your love in good times, you are teaching us God’s Word and at the same time you share with us physically things that are important in life. Thank you.
Lift up the people of Malawi as this will not be an isolated incident, as they are going through a severe drought and many crops have not survived.
We are also getting ready for Boot Camp. We have over five hundred people signed up for teams—teenagers, preteens, Peanuts (7-9 year olds), Mustard Seeds (4-6 year olds) and the ever-important leaders for these teams. This month we are putting up the Big Tops that will be used. It is a lot of work to get ready, but with your prayers we can do it. None of this could get done without prayer supporters and financial supporters.
I also have the privilege to lead the Uganda Foot Washing Team. The team right now has 19 girls and 5 boys. We will be going around to the different villages and washing orphan’s feet, bandaging them and giving them a pair of socks and shoes. For most of these people, it will be the very first pair of shoes they have owned. I have never been on a team like this or to Uganda, so I’m very excited to have this opportunity. In order to do this, I had to raise $2,400. But with your help it is paid off, so I’m able to minister in Uganda and to the teens on the team. PRAISE GOD!! Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support.
I’m a little behind on my support and because of this I’m having a hard time paying my bills. One of those is a root canal that I had to get done because I was in so much pain. If you feel on your heart to give (any amount counts) please fill out the coupon below and note “bills.” As much as I hate going to the dentist, it needed to be done because I was in so much pain. I would have pulled it but it is in the front of my mouth. But God is good and I’m feeling better now.
Thank you for all your support, prayerfully and financially. It is appreciated.
