I don't really have much new news to share however we are trying to compile a budget which is harder than I had thought it would be:) We basically are trying to figure out how much it will cost us to get over there and then how much it will cost to live there so we can start raising support. Plane tickets alone for our family will cost us $15,000-$20,000! That is quite a lot! We are also working on our housing situation there and are looking at a couple options.
As we walk this journey it is amazing to see God's hand in it all. We had a meeting a couple weeks ago with all the people who will be going with us. We also got to talk to a man who lived there for a couple years. What a blessing that was. Very exciting to have these resources! We have also gotten to hear stories from other missionaries that have lived in the area. What a gift this has been. Praise GOD!!
I am so thankful for all of you who have prayed for us and are praying for us, it means so much to us.
If you are interested in knowing more about Karamoja here are a couple links that will give you more info:
The second website has some good info about the way of life for the Karamajoan people. 80% of the people in Karamoja are illiterate. My homeschooling skills of teaching reading might just come in handy :)
