Uganda, Africa Mission April 23 – May 8, 2011
Glory Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! How do I even begin to explain in mere words the wonderful blessings of the Uganda mission trip this past April – May 2011??!! God showed us favor and miracles throughout the entire trip! He was faithful to His word “For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.” Matt 18:20.
I was truly blessed to be with a team of spirit filled, loving believers who were true professionals as well. I thank the Lord and my team for a wonderful adventure! My trip was filled with so many firsts that I could not even begin to list them all but to name just a few big ones; first trip out of the country, first mission trip, first sermon, first radio broadcast, first healings, first African wedding, first baptisms in a lake, etc. Our Pastor summed it up this past Sunday when he talked about Paul’s mission and the need to just “go with the flow of the Holy Spirit” – “And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God.” 1 Cor 2:4-5 – this is how I approached the trip – nothing but great expectation from the Lord and no agenda other than His!
Some may wonder why I chose to say “adventure” instead of mission – while it was a mission trip – mission sounds too much like work – I feel it was more of a true adventure for the Lord – one I looked forward to, enjoyed (pure joy), and look forward to many more adventures with the Lord! He is an awesome travel partner!
