This is the day that the Lord has made, therefore I will rejoice in it and be glad.
In about a half hour I will be heading to Raleigh, beginning my two-week trip to South Sudan. And I will happily admit that I am excited and ready to get started. I am not looking forward to the somewhat brutal amount of travel to get to that part of the world. But I am truly looking forward to being in Uganda and South Sudan.
I have been in South Sudan numerous times. I love the country. I love the people. And I love the opportunities there to really make a difference in the lives of so many.
Please pray for al of us on this United Methodist VIM (Volunteers In Mission) Team. We have an audacious schedule for our time in Yei, but the potential for good demands it.
I will try to be faithful with trip updates. Please stay tuned.
