COURTS IN UGANDA OPEN NEXT WEEK!







We received an "encouraging word" from Auntie Mary that works stateside with Amani. All of our paperwork is ready and waiting for the judge to give us a court date as soon as the courts open back up next week. I am always amazed at the Lord's timing. MillerAnne is starting kindergarten this year (bittersweet), so I will have my oldest four in school. I should have just enough time to get them adjusted to school and then we head out to get lil Josie Love. I am not going to even think about what the preparation to leave will be like, because my sweet Saviour will take care of all of the details. I have to remind myself of that or I could get TOTALLY overwhelmed. In the meantime, we are doing all of the last minute shopping for uniforms, shoes, dentist appointments, haircuts(x4)......needless to say, mama is a little bit busy.
OH, AND I CAN'T FORGET all of our products for 147Million Orphans are being printed RIGHT NOW!! We are going to have t-shirts, messenger bags, visors feed bags, etc....to bring orphan awareness. Our new designs are awesome. With each purchase you will be able to feed a child in Uganda anywhere for 1 week to 3 months depending on the price of the item....I AM SO EXCITED!!! For those of you who do not feel led to adopt or are at a loss as to how YOU can care for orphans....this is a great way. Buy a product and wear it, bring awareness, AND feed an orphan. There is such a significant need for these sweet children. Our website is being designed, I designed labels for the "stuff" last night, gift cards are being made, business cards are printing...yipppeeee!! Gwen and I are going to be at Maryland Farms YMCA with our products on Monday and Tuesday of next week for those of you who are in our area. You can go to 147millionorphans.com to purchase as soon as our website is up and running to purchase if you are not close by.
There is a sweet girl named Sandy that has been volunteering at Amani and loving on Josie Love the past few weeks. check out these new pics!
Also, I am including some pics of my kiddos that are going back to school....pray for an easy transition.

I am so excited to be able to read along! Maybe our timing will work and I'll be able to make a trip across TZ to Uganda while you are there. Josie Love (PERFECT name) is precious and what a strong little girl! Soon Pray, Matty Joseph, and Josie Love will be spending their Sunday mornings together. You will all be in my prayers!
