So tomorrow our group of 14 will head out for the islands on Lake Victoria, Uganda. This is basically a repeat of the medical trip we did last March of 2012 but this time we will also be adding an evangelism team that will be setting up daily Kids Clubs on each of the islands we minister on. Please pray for us. This trip is not an easy one. While on the islands we will have no electricity, no bathrooms, no beds, no kitchens, and will be roughing it camping out in tents. The diseases that are around us range from malaria to yellow fever to parasites in the water. But our Lord is strong and mighty and we are praying that He would strengthen us each day and keep us healthy for the work that is before us. Below is a daily itinerary so that you can come along with us each day through prayer. Thanks in advance. I will try to post more when we get there.
