While planning ahead of time, mostly from October to December, we bought lots and lots of stuff. We had been told about New Hope Uganda and its needs for family and kids. We were supposed to take a fair amount of other products for a church in Jinja, and for African Children's Choir.
Dave had a good job and we had lots of saved money, so we bought much. These are the photos.
One of the hugest blessing I had was when I was at a local Hardware store. I needed to get some of the ropes, strings, hammers, tape, and other basic pieces that could be used in Uganda.
I had indicated to a hardware worker the reason I was struggling with some of the options. A woman, who was shopping in the same aisle I was in, asked how I was doing financially. I told her we were fine, had much to purchase to help the Ugandans and missionaries, but we were OK.
She reached into her purse and handed me $100. She did not give me her name, she did not request or require anything. And with that $100 I was able to purchase everything needed at the Hardware shop.
Every once in a while, while walking through that local hardware store, it comes out to my heart again and again. I hope the Lord has laid blessing and blessing and blessing upon this very "gifting" lady.
Have never met her here again. Hope to meet her in heaven.
