Thank YOU!!!

This blog has been created so that you, our family, friends and senders can keep up with the happenings on our mission trip to Sibanga Village, Uganda, East Africa.

We would like to thank each of you for praying, giving, and loving us well, onward and upward, before, during and after our trip.
Your prayers over us are so important. We ask you to pray for safety and good health (for us and our families), wise choices, and most of all, for the Holy Spirit and the Love of Jesus to be evident in us, with each other, with the people we encounter on the planes and in the airports, and with everyone we meet in Uganda.

We would also like to thank you for your monetary support. The Lord has provided through YOU and continues to do so!
Thank you...
from all of us to all of you...
for giving to the Lord.

Safe in Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport

Well, the team arrived this morning to sunshine in Amsterdam as we touched down just about on time. We arrived at 8:30am Amsterdam time or 1:30pm last night your time. Our second flight to Entebbe leaves at 11:00am so we have part of the team shopping at this wonderful airport, some are visiting Ronald McDonald just to have a Big Mac European style and others have slid off to the Mercur hotel where you can rent showers by the hour for a quick early morning wake up call.

The flight was smoothly operated with better food on board than we have had in the past. The Ambien worked very well for some of us so we watched the insides of our eyelids for half the flight. Others did not succumb to the sleep fairy and are walking around with somewhat of a glaze look on their face. I am sure that once we settle on the second flight, their eyes will be soon closed.

We will likely not have internet in Uganda until we reach Mbale on Saturday. Everyone is feeling good (other than sleepy). We have had a chance to speak to cross cultural folks from Germany, Kenya, & Jordan on this first leg.

Pray the Lord will open doors and hearts and for our boldness.


  1. Hope you are having fun, Kayla, and that you are able to sleep on the plane! Love, Mom
