Tonight I received news from my roomates in Uganda that my home was burglarized in the middle of the night. While they slept in their rooms, several robbers broke into the house by using a long stick with a wire on it to reach through the window they broke and snag the keys hiding behind the water filter (which they could see apparently). They not only scared my poor roomates half to death but stole several things from my home (which were hard to come by in the first place).
I was blessed to view a magnificent sunset tonight. The colors were incredible. It reminded to not worry about those things you have no control over but to trust Him. I am completely thankful my roomates are safe and unharmed. The damage to my Ugandan home and the loss of my things pails in comparison to what could have happened to them. Praise God for His protection.
My time here stateside is swiftly drawing to a close and I will be traveling back to Uganda soon. I have had such a great time with my family. I am still working on drawing in funds for the next term in Uganda. I am again being asked where to send support funds. There was previously two sending agent churches for sending funds to that were being routed to me. Having both has made it confusing and difficult to track for me with my limited internet and communication abilities. So now to reduce that confusion and make it easier to keep track of, I am using only one source and I virtually just picked one and went with it. If you are desiring blessing Reaching Hands Ministries with a financial gift, please use the following sending agent. They will continue to route the funds to me in Uganda. Bless you all:

Send Checks to: CWWC (or Canyon West Worship Center)
P.O. Box 448
Fruita, Colorado 81521
Please make sure to write on the MEMO line: For Reaching Hands Mission/Siouxanne Mease

Thank you so much

Number 16 has arrived

Hello Dear Ones;

Just wanted to update you on my latest blessing. This morning at 9:57AM MST, my 16th Grand child arrived via C-Section at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado. After I might add a long, painful and unsuccessful labor of about 28 hours. My baby ( my 23 year old son, Phillip) became a father.
Nathan Ray Hester arrived weighing in at 7#12.8 oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. He has a head full of downy black/brown hair and is absolutely beautiful. Nathan is my son's middle name and Rae is mine. I am so proud and happy that he has arrived and pray God's blessing on this new addition to the family. Thank you so much dear prayer warriors and supporters and loved ones. I pray your day is just as glorious. I am fast approaching the middle mark of my furlough here at home and wonder how it has flown by so quickly.
