photo (8)Many months ago I was asked to lead a trip to Uganda. At first the plan was to come back like I had last year and talk about women’s health. As we prayed and planned, God slowly led our team to do community mapping. We have gone into homes over the last week and a half and asked questions about water, education, healthcare, and economics. We were overwhelmed by the response. We will be returning home with a better understanding of the community, but the crazy thing is that this trip has still turned into a women’s mission trip. The five women on our team met and worked with some amazing Ugandan women who are working at the Buloba community project. These women are on the front lines of educating and pouring into the community and the sponsored children. We got to joke, giggle and share our snacks with them. We were able to hear about their personal struggles. We prayed with them and encouraged these women to keep being Godly women and educators in their communities. They allowed us to hear how wonderful the sponsorship program is and how it has transformed lives. But most of all they allowed us to become their friends. There is nothing better than being with a group of amazing women and realizing that women all over the world have similar hearts and desires. It is truly good for the soul.
