Mike Hamilton is the president now. The Lord connected me to his wife while I was in Uganda and found out Josie was HIV positive. She emailed me to affirm me that everything was going to be okay, and to tell me that they brought home a sibling group and the youngest was positive. At the time, they were not disclosing that she is positive. NOW, they are using their VOICE and their platform to educate and encourage. I LOVE how Christ does that! Their little girls name is "Kalu" which means "spread the word"....WHAT ABOUT THAT?!?!? After hearing that, I googled Josephine... the meaning? "HE will enlarge".....WOW! I literally dropped my head and said a prayer of thanksgiving. I am SO thankful that HE is allowing little ole me to be part of a story that HE WILL ENLARGE! I sat at my fundraising table hearing all of the stories of how HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of people die of HIV/AIDS daily, and HE has entrusted me with a survivor of this disease. WHY? Because He is going to do great things through people KNOWING her story. HE is going to ENLARGE our territory, so we can EDUCATE people on what it looks like to walk in blind faith and how HE will show HIS face OVER and OVER and OVER again if we will just CLING to HIM. COME ON PEOPLE...just get a little taste of what HE can do and you will want more and more! I want you to feel it, FEEL the JOY that only HE can give you.
say YES to something RADICAL and CRAZY...let HIM show HIS face to you....you will NEVER be the same.
- I am a lover of Jesus. I have the most fabulous husband that anyone woman could ask for. The Lord has blessed us with 7 beautiful children. I started this blog so that friends and family could follow our trip to Uganda to visit Katie Davis. I have decided to keep blogging to help bring orphan awareness to the world around me.
