The Last 2 Weeks (And we are going back to Uganda in Sept)

Cody and I are pretty excited that we are now Field Coordinators with Missionary Ventures. God has really done great things with the timing of this all (thankful it happened so quickly). They are a great organization and we feel honored to be a part of their family. It was great being in Florida to meet the staff and to learn more about their organization and life as a missionary (some we already know, but it is always good to hear it again). We love that they focus on relationships with their missionaries, and this showed to be true during our 10 days there. The time there was very productive and Cody and I both left there feeling like this was a new beginning for us. It has in some ways been really hard to be in the States so long when your heart and calling is in Uganda, however God has done some amazing things in our heart over the past year, and we have both grown, emotionally and spiritually. We are grateful that God knows best and we feel like our time here is only going to make us stronger, and better equipped as missionaries. He has blessed us beyond measure and put us exactly where we need to be. After leaving Missionary Ventures we have a renewed passion for getting to Uganda to share the Good News to the displaced Karamajong.
With that I am pleased to share with you that we will be going back in late September! Hooray! We are pretty excited about that. We now work hard at building our prayer and financial support team.

Cody has been working hard on updating our website, so if you get a chance you should check it out. We are also trying to organize things better, and so on the right you will find a place you can put your email address if you would like to receive our newsletters.

Here are some pictures:

We did have one day off when we were in Florida, so we did the cheapest and the most relaxing things and went to the beach.

While at training the Jesus Film presented us with a projector and screen to share the Jesus Film in Ngkarimojong (not to mention the over 1000 other languages we can get it in!) This is a huge blessing. It is the latest version making it very compact and easy to transport.

We were not able to take all the kids, but we were able to Skype with them! Thankful for Skype!

Meanwhile Joshua's Club team won Regionals in Boise so now they will be traveling to Florida in July for Nationals!
