Grace here...

It is 11:11 PM here in Uganda...Today we had over 200 kids come over and worship God, eat food, and play games (i got to be in a sack race....surprisingly, i won, giving the girls team the lead...) :) . Also, we gave everyone a sack of food, a BIG bar of soap, and a t-shirt, (another example of God showing himself)....we had the EXACT amount of t shirts to give each kid one, and after handing out the last one, we were out.  After all the kids had left, Katie, my mom, Mallory, Michael, my dad and I all went to visit Amani Baby cottage (an orphanage about 15 minutes away from Katie's house), where we visited and loved on the kids... Many of the kids there are special needs, and some have had a rough past....please pray for them that they all stay healthy and that they would be able to find homes. Although we have only been here for a day, our hearts are already changing, and drawing closer to God. Pray for safety and protection for Katie, her kids, the Amazima children, our team, and the children with out someone to tuck them in tonight. Good night!! :)
P.S. My mom is supposed to post pics either tonight or tomorrow so be on the lookout for those...

I so enjoyed reading your post. What a wonderful opportunity on your 13th birthday to have such an experience and to be the "hands and feet" for God!!! I realize I'm a couple of days late in wishing you a happy birthday but I wanted you to know that I did think of you. Tell your mom and everyone else hello for me. I am glad you all made it there safely.
