Thanks for checking in today! For our regulars, just a heads up, we are part of a giveaway carnival, and so today we're introducing ourselves to the world. Head on over to Moms, Ministry and More to learn more about how you can do your part!
And for our guests from the Candle in the Corner giveaway, WELCOME! We are so glad to have you in our little corner!
Uganda has been called the "Pearl of Africa"- it is a gorgeous country: awash with vibrant colors, balmy, tropical temperatures, and warm, loving people. There is much to love about this amazing country. And yet the world looks in on Uganda, and Africa as a whole, and sees only war lords, poverty, aids, malaria, and orphans. But God sees Uganda as a country of promise and potential! He won't rest until she shines with His righteousness- and neither should we! The world sees danger and poverty- but we see hope.
God has HUGE plans for Uganda- and WGM is on the front-lines training local pastors to reach their own people. It is so exciting to be on the cusp of such a grand adventure! Our whole focus in ministry is bringing people deeper in their relationship with Jesus.
We are the Hallahans (Josh, Kelly, Caleb and Seth) and we are heading to Kampala, Uganda in June 2010. We are missionaries with World Gospel Mission, working in student ministry. We will be working at Heritage International School as Campus Pastor- hanging out with the international students (grades K-12), getting to know them, leading youth group and Bible studies, and ministering to their families. We will also be discipling college students at Kampala International University.
At the Christian international school, there is such a need for stable, loving people to invest in these kids and their families. So Josh and I are excited to open our home and serve cookies, play Wii, and just love on these kids (in addition to leading formal youth group and Bible studies). For a much clearer picture of our work at the university check out this field video!
