Thank you
Thank you church family for your support in this trip to Uganda. I have received the mission orders and we will conduct the meetings just south of the Sudan border in Kitgum. This area has only been safe to travel for a few months so your continued support through prayer is greatly appreciated. It is truly a miracle of God that I am able to go on this mission physically, financially and spiritually. I am in reach of the goal there is no doubt and still have until July 6th. Thank you all so very much for allowing God to use you. Rose Merck
We will receive a love offering to help on this trip Sunday morning.
