An electronic letter

This is a copy of the first letter that I sent out about my upcoming mission to Karamoja, Uganda for those of you who didn't get a copy.

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings! Summer is rapidly approaching, and I am excited to share with you some of the things God is doing in my life.

Currently I am in my junior year at the IU School of Nursing in Indianapolis. In looking back on the past year God has used change, academic challenges, and His word especially through sermons and bible studies to teach me and mold me.

I was praying and thinking about how to use my “last” summer break when a couple of opportunities opened up. Through the counsel of my parents and others I have decided to pursue a summer missions trip to Uganda with Reformed Presbyterian Missions. Some of you may remember my previous summer mission trips to Cyprus in 2005 and 2006 with RP Missions. This summer I am excited to participate with RP Missions in another location. This mission will allow me to use my nursing skills to serve in a clinic and gain experience in rural medicine. I am praying that God will use this experience to show me how I can use nursing to serve Him at home and abroad.

I will, Lord-willing, be traveling with a team of six others from June 9 to July 15 to work with a group of Orthodox Presbyterian missionaries in the Karamoja region of Uganda. Karamoja is rural sub-region in northeastern Uganda. The missionaries are using education, training in sustenance farming, medical services and other practical methods to minister to the Karamojong. Our team will be helping the missionaries in whatever ways we can whether it be manual labor, helping in the clinic, or teaching Religious Education and English classes in the village schools.

I am excited about this opportunity, but I also recognize that it will challenge me in many ways. I am writing this letter to ask you to consider supporting me in this mission. The trip does have a financial cost of $3,400 to cover flight, food, supplies, etc., and if you are willing and able to support me financially I am enclosing a response card and envelope. Most importantly, my teammates and I need your support in prayer as we prepare for and participate in this mission.

A few specific things you can pray for me and my teammates would be:

- That each member of the team would be getting daily time in the Word

- That God would protect us both in preperation and while we are there

- That God would provide for our financial needs

Thank you! I look forward to being able to share how God used our mission trip in Uganda.
