Dear Friends and Family:
We want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity we have been presented. From September 3 through September 12, 2011, we have been offered the chance to go to Uganda with a group called Sixty Feet. This 10-day mission trip will be spent reaching out and spreading the gospel to the gracious people of Uganda. While we will be working alongside many adults there, our main focus is on the children. They reside in under-funded orphanages, foster care and “Remand Homes”, which are basically Children’s Prisons. Please visit www.sixtyfeet.org for more details about this amazing group!
While God has opened up a door for us to go, the exciting part is that you will be able to share in this journey with us! Even if you aren’t there, there are several ways you can help. First, and most importantly, you can help by keeping us in prayer. We will need prayers that God will prepare us for our visit and bless our efforts as we minister to the people of Uganda. We need prayer that the Lord will keep us healthy and sustain us while we are there, as we anticipate it being a physically and emotionally trying time. We need prayer as we consider adoption from Uganda. We will also need prayer that our financial needs will be met.
Another way you can be involved is to help provide that much needed financial support. As part of our effort to raise the $4,000.00 needed for this trip, Marty and I are selling handmade crosses. And when I say “Handmade”, I literally mean they have each been made with love by us. And by “us” I mean “Marty” because there is a welder involved. And you do not want me operating a welder. Trust.
They are $15.00 each with free local delivery (Madison/Hinds/Rankin County) OR $20.00 if you’d prefer I ship it to you. They are approximately 11” tall and 8” wide (give or take an inch on either side just depending on what materials we can find) and can be viewed on our blog at http://usillypickle.blogspot.com. If you are interested in one (or 1,000!), please complete and return the order form below, along with your check. Delivery is about 1-2 weeks after payment has been received. They make great gifts so please tell your friends!!!
Please note that any funds raised above and beyond our $4,000.00 goal will be used solely for Missions and/or Adoption Ministry. Whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your support is appreciated. We look forward to doing God's work in Uganda and cannot wait to tell you all about it when we return. We love you tremendously.
