Those 19 suitcases dedicated to supplies include hundreds of packets assembled and sent with love from sponsors all over the US. A large amount of our time in the Hearts & Hope partner villages will be spent delivering those packets and enjoying watching the kids sort through the contents. The letters and photos inside are treasured and help grow the relationship between the student and their sponsors.
We will also be making a delivery of seeds from Hope Seeds and carrying four boxes of books from Pastor Dan Schneider for the seminary in Uganda.
We have plans to paint the church in Nakabango, spend time doing crafts and playing games with the kids, and bring some hope and encouragement to our friends in Uganda. Word has it that we will get to watch/participate in a "friendly match" with the Nakabango soccer team. We will also be visiting a village where none of us have ever been before!
We appreciate prayers for safety and a productive two weeks on the mission field!
