I am headed to Uganda in January to serve on The Uganda Kids Camp team! This is truly a dream come true and I am constantly blown away by God and His timing for my life. My passion for Africa is rooted deep in my heart and began to sprout in high school when I first heard about Invisible Children and the completely devastating acts of the Lord’s Resistance Army lead by Joseph Kony. In January, I am going to an area that was highly effected by Kony and still feels that impact today. Around 48% of the population is under the age of 15 years old. For frame of reference, The U.S. is at 19%. God has been preparing my heart and mind for visiting Africa and I can’t believe He is sending me to the one place where my passion began to flourish.
Our team will be heading to Pader, Uganda from January 7-18 for an incredible time leading a gospel-focused kids' camp (think: Vacation Bible School) alongside our friends at Pader Community Church and Africa Renewal Ministries. This team will provide support, encouragement, and God's truth to both kids and adults living in Pader, coming alongside the teachers and leaders of PCC and sharing in all that God is doing through His church in this part of the world.
The Pader Community Church is exploding right now and the only reason is Him. Here is a video of Pader, Uganda to give you a little perspective of where we will be.
We know that none of this is possible without God’s leading and the support of His people – through, most importantly, prayer and also financially in giving. For me to participate and assist in leading this trip, it costs close to $3,500.
