My Trip to Uganda

Uganda MapAs part of my M.Div program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) and as a result of God’s work in my heart, I will be traveling to Mbale, Uganda this May for a two-week missions trip. This is specifically designed as a “vision trip,” to expose me to other cultures (particularly in the majority world) and to provide vital experiences which will help our family discern if God might calling us to teach or minister in another part of the world.

I have created this page to to journal through this experience, focused on these goals:

  1. To keep you updated, including where I’m at, what I’m doing, fundraising and other preparations, etc.
  2. To share prayer requests and stories of God at work in my life & those around me.
  3. To share pictures and insights into the Ugandan people and culture.

I look forward to your joining me on this journey.
