Not The Plan....

It has taken me till today to finally post on my website. I had posted a few weeks back about trying to raise the funds for another mission trip to Amani Baby Cottage. Well, obviously, you now know, I was not able to go.
I had to have a deadline for fundraising, not only common sense sake, but also for my job. I needed to give them a deadline in order to find coverage for the two weeks I would have been gone.
I was not able to meet either. It would seem God has other plans for me this year. Going to Uganda, was not one of them.
I wanted to go so badly, and support the baby home I spent so many years serving. I truly believed it would happen.
As yesterday was the 10th Anniversary Celebration, I believe strongly God has a reason for everything, though I deeply wish I could have gone and spent this time at Amani.
I know that Amani had an awesome celebration yesterday and that many former Amani children were able to attend this celebration. I am so excited for what God has in store for Amani and the next 10 years.
Though, I received some funding, I did not receive enough in time, so now I need to take care of business.
Those of you who so selflessly blessed me with financial support and sent money need to let me know how you want me to return your donation.
Here is a few choices to think about and let me know what to do with your donation dollars.
1. I could return your check or money order to you
2. I could shred it and render it obsolete
3. I could hang on to it for a future trip (which I pray will be within the next year)
4. I could donate it back directly to Amani Baby Cottage or another Christian organization

Some of you have already contacted me to let me know, what you want me to do with your funds. Will those of you who sent or gave funds, take a moment to drop me a line and let me know what you would like me to do with your donation funds.

Lastly, I want to thank all of you who gave both financially and prayerfully. You bless me, even though God chose to keep me here and not in Uganda. Thank you for loving me and these sweet awesome kids I will one day again, Lord willing, get to minister too.
May He bless you and keep you!!
Thank you
