I AM GOING TO UGANDA !!!!

COURT DATE ... WILL BE HEADING TO UGANDA AT THE END OF THIS MONTH ...

When I say my heart is leaping out of my chest and I can barely focus on the next second that is a huge understatement !!!! God is moving and melting mountains ... I am sure I will have more to share later today, but at this moment I am about to jump out of myself I am so happy !!! The thought of hugging and kissing my kids is beyond a dream !!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH  !!!!!!!

Thank YOU JESUS!
Oh, Gwen.... I have tears in my eyes, no breath in my lungs, goose bumps on my skin and I am over joyed!!!! I was just visiting a blog I hardly ever find my way to and for some reason I was glancing on their sidebar at their blog lists and I saw the Oatsvall team with the heading, "I am going to Uganda!"
Oh, sweet sister... I am so thankful and I have been praying and praying and praying and I must confess at times I have questioned the Lord why it has to take so long and then I had to repent and trust in His timing!
I don't want to bug you but just know I am so close to calling you so I can cry happy, tears of joy with you!
I will be praying......
Your babies are coming home!!!!!!!!!!!!!
love you sister and thank You Jesus!

sunny-d said...

Daisy and Joseph- my thoughts are with you this very moment. Are you slowing down your day to begin preparing for bedtime. Are your bellies full and are your love tanks overflowing? Your Heavenly Father has His eye on you and today He is calling you closer to your Earthly home where you will be nurtured in the Word of the living God and all the blessings that brings; warm meals, bathtime, bedtime stories and a family that will never leave you and always love you. I don't know your family in the flesh, but they are my spiritual family too and we are one in Christ. I am rejoicing with them today and praising our Lord for putting His heart in them.

I just checked your blog today, since I have been busy the last few days getting ready to go to Uganda myself. I am sitting in the Amsterdam airport on the way there now. I will be there 3-4 months, and would love to meet you if you get a chance. I would love to have you come visit Redeemer House Orphanage when you're in Kampala. I also have thought about visiting Jinja. It would be great to meet you and Katie!
