Prayers

prayerPrayer is absolutely essential to what we’re trying to do. The vision that we have of traveling to Uganda for 4 weeks to help people in rural villages is risky, dangerous, logistically taxing and generally impossible for a Junior in college to throw together. If this works, it will be an answer to prayer.

Below are our prayer requests. Crossed out ones have been answered.

  • Pray that God would make it clear how many people are supposed to go and what the gender make-up of the team should be
  • Pray that God would make it boldly clear whether each of us are supposed to go and if this team with the right team to do the job.
  • Pray that God would conquer the immense amount of doubt that we have and to encourage us if we are supposed to go to Uganda
  • Pray that we can book a band that will agree to play for free as a fund raising concert
    • Note: An amazing band named, “Under Falling Skies” has agreed to do a free show for us!!

  • Pray that God would give us the funds to be able to go.
    • Our minimum requirement is $18,000 but we are praying for $20,000 (our only restriction to reaching people in Uganda is the amount of money we bring for fuel/resources)
