love for uganda {giveaway at call me blessed!}

happy monday! today my dear friend jami has a little something to share with us.
jami's been such an encouraging friend. we met through blogging, and during our first skype chat was when i knew we were gonna be close forever. mostly because she didn't mind my messy hair and purple hoodie sweatshirt. since then, we've met "in real life" and even vacationed together. she's the real deal, and her heart for jesus and his gospel inspire me in my own walk with christ. 
jami's husband has an opportunity to go and serve in uganda very soon. and we need your help to get their team there! we are all called to bring glory to christ through taking the gospel in love here and abroad. some are called to go, we are all called to pray and give. i hope you'll pray with us and seek the lord  about how you can help out with this mission:


Uganda


today is the day! the day you get to see all the goodies up for grabs.

aaaand, i'm nervous. there i said it. i feel better already.


if you read my post from last week you know that hubby is part of a mission team going to uganda this summer.
we are thrilled to be able to participate and can not wait to see what the Lord does.
the team will be traveling with children of the nations spending time teaching and loving on children in group homes.
they will also be visiting refugee camps, building a laundry facility and planting fruit trees.

the children they will be spending time with have been displaced by AIDS and war.

just the thought of it is heartbreaking to me. so many children with no parents and without a home.
i long to look into their little faces. to tell them Jesus loves them. to tell them i love them.
for the time being, however,  i feel called to send my hubby off with as much support and prayer as possible.

will you pray for him and the entire team? pray that everyone they come in contact with will see and feel the love they have come to bring.

we are also in need of financial support. some wonderful friends have rallied behind me to make this fun giveaway possible.
i am beyond grateful for and humbled by their support.
