Uganda Update (ways to support the team’s work)

As many of you know, we are planning to take a team of missionaries to Uganda October 22nd through November 1st. We currently have about 17 missionaries committed to the trip. In addition to raising their own funds to pay for their trip, we also need to raise funds to complete projects while we are in Uganda. Below is a list of projects that Kenneth (Tender Hearts Baby’s Home Director) has suggested the team could do while in Uganda. Naturally, we can not expect to do every project in 10 days. However, what we are able to do, will likely depend on the amount of support raised. If you or your church would like to contribute to any of these projects, please click the donate button below. Please feel free to pass this e-mail on to anyone you know who may be interested in helping.

Uganda Video

Nightlight Christian Adoptions has put together a video with photos from our last mission trip to Uganda. It tells a great story about the people of Uganda and is very compelling. Please feel free to use this video in your church and community events to raise support for Tender Hearts Babies Home.

Uganda Mission Team: A few more openings available

As you know for the past few months, Nightlight has been in the planning stages of preparing a team to go to Uganda this coming October. Unfortunately, a few of our team members have had unexpected conflict and are now unable to travel. Because of these events we are extending one more opportunity for you to join if you feel led to do so. If God is calling you to Kampala and you have not yet responded please do. We are praying that hearts and minds will be opened and that God will accomplish His work through us over the next months and years to come.

The dates of our trip are October 22-31st. The cost is approximately $2500. If you are interested in going on this trip please email Lisa ASAP. Plans are progressing very quickly as the time for our departure grows near!

Uganda Praise: Baby’s Home Rent

Last week I sent out an urgent message that the rent at the Tender Hearts Baby’s Home was due at the end of the month. We must pay 6 months of rent each time and the total due was $4,200. As of Friday of last week, we had raised $4,065! I was overwhelmed by your response and by God’s faithfulness when I totaled the numbers on Friday. I think often, in crisis, we doubt that God is big enough. It is with each demonstration of His faithfulness that our faith grows. Through your generosity and willingness to be guided by the Lord, He has continued to show us his faithfulness and also that it is His will for us to be working in Uganda. Thank you to everyone who gave. Please share this story of God’s provision with everyone. He deserves all the glory.

In addition, we now have 18 team members signed up to go to Uganda in October for our first Nightlight mission trip. I have been so touched by the testimony of those who have joined our team. Thank you to everyone who continues to support the baby’s home in finances and in prayer. Please keep our mission team in your prayers as we raise funds, prepare to travel, and while we are in country. We will provide more updates as we go along.

God Bless,
