Experience Uganda - September 13th

Saturday September 13th (2) opportunities to  
Experience Uganda
12:00 -2:30 
and 
6:00 - 8:30

Come experience the beauty and love of Uganda.  It is amazing how powerful the LOVE OF GOD is in this poverty stricken village. The people of Uganda are resourceful.   Come and see what they make from sticks,  leaves and mud. See the toys the children play with, the mats they sleep on.     Hear the joy of their music and the power of their dance.   Experince a special meal the children have every Easter and Christmas

 I am deeply humbled every time I  visit.

Kisoboka - my next adventure

Last Friday,  morning I felt in perfect peace.  I was praising God for providing a job that allowed balance and peace.  I was able to care for my family, do my job and work on my passion Kisoboka.  The transition to work from home gave me 2-3 hours back in my day, previously spent stressed to the max on 128 traveling back and forth to work.  I was now in a comfortable place.  I was praising God in prayer for this life balance.   
LOL - 1 hour later I was given notice my job was being eliminated.  When we land in Uganda I will be unemployed.  I guess God did not want me to be comfortable.  As God often does he pushes us out of our comfort zone.   He is answering a prayer and telling me to trust him.   My prayer has been to work full time for my passion Kisoboka.   My next adventure self employment.
Am I ready? NO
Am I prepared? NO
Am  I qualified? NO 
Am I trusting? YES. 
10 X's.

love Mom Sandy Gwoyogala

Update- Fish Store and Beauty Salon

Noels fish store will start construction soon!  This will allow her to provide for her family more than her subsistence farming does now.  She will go to the river purchase fish.  Smoke them and dry them for sale.  Fish are enjoyed by all in the village.

We are going to provide another business opportunity in Bakka.  Our office space is more than we need.  We are going to help a women from Bakka set up a Beauty Salon.  We will continue to pay the rent and purchase the beauty shop equipment.  She must pay it forward by training students we identify.    Note: This is a shift from our original plan of a sewing center. 

Pictures will be coming!
