UGANDAN GIFT


THE GIFT WAS THAT, BECAUSE YEARS BEFORE DAVE AND I MET, WE BOTH HAD DESIRED TO BE MISSIONARIES.  WHEN WE WERE BEING PUT TOGETHER, ONE OF THE FIRST PIECES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION 
 WAS THIS HUGE DESIRE.

AMAZINGLY,   5-1/2 YEARS LATER, WE WERE SENT TO UGANDA TO SEEK PEOPLE, CHECK THINGS OUT.

DURING THE 5 WEEKS WE WERE THERE, WE WERE GIVEN WONDERFUL EVENTS BY WONDERFUL PEOPLE ...
 AND WE BOTH TRULY DID SOME WONDERFUL THINGS, 
AS THE LORD DROPPED 
THOUGHTS AND IDEAS AND NEEDS ON US.

IT WAS A MIRACULOUS TIME FOR US...
PLAIN "MERE" PEOPLE THE LORD DESCRIBED.
AND WHY?  BECAUSE WE LOVE THE LORD.

[WE'VE BEEN BLESSED WITH MANY MIRACULOUS OPPORTUNITIES TO BE INTERNATIONAL MISSIONARIES AND USA INTERNAL NATIONAL MISSIONARIES.  WHAT A BLESSING!]

Dear Joanne
One thing that stands out for me as I came to know you this year, is your sold-our heart for missions. It brings me great joy to see how Pappa has made your wishes come true! He just is the most amazing Father!
Blessings for 2014 XX

You've been obedient and our Father has increased the size of your heart and soul because of it. There is no better thing to do than to give of ourselves… Thanks for the example from you and your husband. God bless you two.
