Dear friends and fellow body of Christ,
Just an update on our first Missionary journey to come, we are now 5 weeks away from departure.
God is faithful! We are Blessed. We agree with Isaiah 51:2b as the seed of Abraham by faith, “He has called us. He has Blessed us. He has Increased us. “
We will be sharing God’s word across Africa. Nine times Denver is scheduled to speak in South Sudan at the first orphanage location, and then possibly in their church, and Stacey is doing a women’s Bible study with the widows of the orphanage 5 days a week 2 to 4 hours each day. during the three weeks we are there.
The second location offers other opportunities for preaching and speaking with the Orphanage.
Each location includes sharing on trips into the villages with the orphans as our translators.
More info on the work this site is doing can be found online at http://hrtn.org/
The lady who began the work also just authored her first book about the experience:

We felt that our journey itinerary plan should leave days open both going into and coming out of Sudan during our passage thru Uganda. So we left one day open on the entry and several days open on the exit. Just this week, we have been blessed with an open door on the way in to minister in a school and an orphanage known as ABBA House.http://houseoffriends.org/
Our hope is to provide a pair of dress shoes for each of the 40 kids between age 5 - 18 that are required to have so they may attend the school. The orphanage is working on getting us the name, gender, and shoe size of each of the children. We also hope to take them a pair of tennis shoes, a set of twin bed sheet (not white) for each child and a individual Bible in the same translation(NLT), as well as some treats they like red Licorice.
It is amazing how God made this connection after the fact of our planning the open time.
At this point to our knowledge our travel budget has been met and we are making last purchases for the items we are taking for the orphanages.
Thank you for your prayers. Love and support,
Priests of the Lord by Isaiah 61:6
