I recently returned home from my third trip to Uganda, Africa. I have so much to share however I can’t put it all into words yet. Imagine that, me at a loss for words. 😉
I’m so thankful for cell phone cameras and large storage capacity!
The pictures I took of the people I met are what help me process each experience.
One of my highlights was meeting a beautiful woman named Sarah. I met her at one of the conferences I spoke at.
Sarah shared her hard story with me of how her husband abandoned her and her children leaving her bitter with God.
One of the local pastors that Man Up and Go partners with (the ministry I went with) invited Sarah to church and there she repented and received God’s forgiveness and healing.
Sarah longed for her marriage to be restored but her husband married her sister instead, leaving Sarah deeply wounded and questioning her faith.
Click here to Listen to Sarah share how God ministered to her during the conference.
The conference theme was: “Dancing in the Rain” and the scripture focus was Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say Rejoice.” Sarah is a woman who knows how to rejoice!!
Added blessing…..I got to see Sarah again!!
After the conference we traveled to Ebenezer Ministry in Kibuku, Uganda.
When we got off the bus I heard a woman calling out with joy. As she hugged me I realized it was Sarah! I was so happy to see her and to sit and visit with her more. Sarah helps with the children at the orphanage.
Prior to leaving for Uganda I bought a dress to wear at the conference. I did not feel comfortable in it when I dressed the morning of the conference so I packed it away in my suitcase. It still had the tags on it so I thought I might return it when we got back to America.
But God had another plan for that dress!
When I saw Sarah, I knew the dress was for her! Oh how Sarah and I rejoiced over how God intimately cares for us!!
Would you say a prayer for Sarah and her children that she will continue to rejoice and trust in the Lord and He will continue to meet her needs?!
