Team 1 is gearing up for a Saturday departure. Ten of us will leave St. Louis (and Charlotte, North Carolina) around 1:00 pm. We will arrive in Entebbe around 10:30 pm on Sunday (Uganda time) - 1:30pm St. Louis time!
We have a mixture of mission trip experience - some have been to Uganda more than once and others are making the journey for the first time. No matter - this promises to be a life-changing trip!
Team 2 will leave St. Louis on February 11th and return on the 22nd.
Between the two teams, almost 450 packets will be delivered to sponsorship students over three weeks. We will also hand out Hearts and Hope backpacks and lots more surprises.
Prayers for safe travel and peace of mind are appreciated as these team members prepare to leave their families and serve the children of Uganda!
We are! Team 1 leaves on January 31st; team 2 follows on February 11th. Double the impact - double the fun!
Both teams will be delivering packets to the sponsorship students in the 5 Hearts and Hope schools. We will spend lots of time with the women and the kids, bearing some books and lots of candy. There are goats, textbooks, benches and bedding kits to deliver! There will be a wedding, an ordination, and a feast to celebrate the partnership between Butangala and Immanuel Lutheran Church in Wentzville! So much to look forward to. Please keep both teams in your prayers as they pack and make plans to leave their families for 12 days.
Hearts & Hope is a nonprofit organization focused on unlocking the potential of people in Uganda through relationships with people in the US.
