So far behind.....

I'm really behind in a lot of stuff......blogging, reading blogs and commenting.  I am going to get busy and get back to it, but today I want to ask for your help.  

We all know that this forum is a huge prayer chain and have seen it work over and over again.

These two.....on either side of our Ugandan friend Henry.....are Mark and Laura.  They have given their lives for the cause of Christ, both here and in Uganda.  They love Uganda and the people they have come to know.

Right now they are seeking the Lord's will and His leading to move to Uganda.  

Please go over and take a look at the Faith 500 project.  While you're there, take a look at what has been done in less than three years.  Mercy Uganda only needs $497,000.00 to complete this project.

So much has happened there in such a short time.....the Lord can do whatever He pleases.

Mark and Laura are earnestly seeking His will and asking that doors be opened for them to do His work.

It's amazing to me that millions of dollars are raised in the United States for presidential candidates.  Millions!  I know it takes lots of money to run campaigns, but if they can raise millions, seems like $500,000 is not so much to save lives and take the gospel to the utter most parts of the world.
Matthew 28:18 - 20

This is not a plea for you to contribute.

This is what I'm asking you to do, and only if you feel led to my blog and to this one and maybe even this one, then we'll watch and see what the Lord will do, and I promise you a follow up report.

I just know that God has people out there with the resources to help us help the women and children of Uganda.  Once you read their stories, you'll never be the same.

Oh, also, your prayers......Mercy Uganda asks for your prayers......the most important part.

Thanks, friends!

Our prayers are with them. I have a friend who was just in Uganda with her church and fell in love with the people awesome!

Love the blog! The format, text and all if it is wonderful! I agree, in light of the millions raised for the presidency, and all campaigns the $500,000 is peanuts. But, in the Lord's timing and in His hands, as He owns the cattle on 1,000 hills... AND He owns the hills!!! Praise be to our Heavenly Father, the Creator of the Universe! Rejoicing in the Name of Jesus, there is no other Name which is equal on earth!

I'll be sure to put them in my prayers. We all know the power of prayer but the hardest part is often waiting on his timing.

It really is an amazing cause. My prayers are with them and all of the missionaries who give their lives to follow His call. There will be a special place for them.
