Back in the States

We have been back in Illinois for about a month now. Our last few weeks in Uganda were packed with Christmas parties, weekend trips, finishing up projects and debriefing time. It was super difficult to leave the projects that we were working on being that we left mid-project, but we trust that the Lord will significantly use the foundations that we have laid. We are also thankful that John and Paula Sauder, long term eMi missionaries, will be able to finish the work that we had begun. It was also really difficult to leave the many children that we fell in love with. The Ugandan children will probably be our most cherished memory of Uganda, ranging from the village kids, street kids, orphans and Arise Africa staff children. We were blessed to be surrounded by lively little ones.

We want to thank you for your many prayers, financial support and your emails and letters of encouragement. Each one of you means SO much to us!! We are blessed to be surrounded by such incredible people!!!! As much as we were blessed by our time in Uganda, we pray that your lives were blessed through partnering with us. Without your support it would have been impossible to serve the people in Uganda. If you are around Chicago on Sunday, February 8th we will be sharing a short presentation about our time in Africa at Bethany Baptist Church, 6700 Gunnison Ave, Harwood Heights, IL at the 10:00am service. We hope to see you there. If not, we hope to share the same presentation both in Champaign, IL and Plymouth, WI sometime in the near future. We'll keep you posted.

Thanks again for all your love and support!!

We love you dearly!
