Trip 30 to Uganda

9 of the 10 of us (Aaron left two days ago) and our 36 bags with over 1,000 pounds of tools, medicine, clothes, soccer cleats, Bibles, Jesus Film projector, audio Bibles, and other supplies, started out at Charlotte Airport at 4:00 am this morning.

The first crisis of the trip was a failed zipper on our largest duffel bag. A number of not great options rolled through my mind. No problem….we have Chandler, an Eagle Scout with spare paracord and pocket knife in his bag to check. The duffle was made of ripstop fabric so we stitched it closed. Hope the security check is OK with it.

We are excited to see the kids and the community and be inside God’s plan for this trip. Thank you for your prayers.

Merry Christmas from MSM and All

My Christmas thought this year……Our heavenly Father gave us a Christmas present that was just what we needed and a perfect fit.  We can’t top that gift or reciprocate equally.  Jesus was given for us out of pure love and grace.  John 3:16-17, Heb 2:14-18.  MSM is a means for us to give out of love and show grace in a symbolic way of appreciating what Jesus has done for us.  What a privilege it has been this year thanks to your prayers, generosity, and love.

Here are just a few pics representing the 100 kids living at two sponsored Children’s Homes in Kenya and Uganda, 600+ kids attending three sponsored schools, roughly 500 people served at a sponsored medical outreach in Uganda, literally thousands of people hearing the Gospel by means of the Jesus Film and native language Jesus Film and Audio recordings, four mission trips to Africa, and many other projects and efforts showing the love of Jesus in a practical way in Africa and in the US.

We do all these projects with what has been provided to us.  Thank you for your prayers and faithful giving in 2019.  We look forward to continuing with your gifts yet in 2019 and ongoing.  I have been asked to pass on the greetings and thanks from the many people whose lives we have been blessed to contact.

Merry Christmas from Bob and the MSM team.

Launching Trip 26 today.  Greg, Randy, and I are headed for Uganda and next week Randal and Cheryl join us.  We have all been to Africa many times but we still are excited to get back.  In general we will be loving on the kids and people at Child Redeemed Mission Home in Uganda, the Teso Evangelism ministry in Malaba, Kenya, and the kids at Lord’s Servants Home in Kitale, Kenya.

I will post updates about how it is going….coming up, Swing Set for the Rock View Primary School, Teso evangelism training, visiting the kids at Lord’s Servants Home, VBS at Child Redeemed Mission Home, and a Medical Vision Outreach for the Bwase Community.

Your prayers and support are vital and appreciated!
