Family and Friends,
We spent the last week in Nebbi, Uganda building a school at Acres of Hope and introducing the sport of field hockey to the children. Acres of Hope is an orphanage and school that houses close to 40 children. Pastor Geoffrey Odongo founded Acres of Hope in 2011 and has been building up the project ever since. I (Jodi) met Pastor Geoffrey back in 2008 on my first journey to Uganda and we have been kindred spirits since. He is a man of God and has incredible faith and trust in the Lord. After hearing Geoffrey talk about Acres of Hope for many years it was an absolute joy to see all that the Lord has done to make Acres of Hope the place that it is today and the future of Acres of Hope is so bright! The children are full of joy and have such an appreciation for the place they call home. Pastor Geoffrey is cultivating a generation of young people that will do big things in the Uganda and the world. We are so thankful we got to spend time with all of the workers and children of Acres of Hope. It had a huge impact on our team.
Tomorrow we embark on a safari through Murchison Falls before going back to Kampala. Heading into next week we will spend time at the Nugulu slum at the beads project and then on to visit our friends at Hidden Treasure School.
Thank you for your continued prayers. May we continue to trust Him as he leads us and directs us in the coming week.
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21
