Trip to Uganda!

EXCITING NEWS!

The first week of September, I'm going to be traveling to Uganda with Compassion International. I have been working with Compassion for a couple years now and cannot say enough about how wonderful they are. They know exactly why they are doing what they are doing, who they serve, and the best way to serve them.

I will be there 10 days and will be blogging EVERY night of that trip that I have internet access (which should be most nights). We just got a video camera so there will be some video blogs as well. I want to let you know now so you can make sure and check this blog during my trip. You can also sign up on my email list if you want a reminder.

I'm more excited than I can tell you, and hope that you can experience a little of Uganda with me!

I'm excited to hear about your Uganda trip in September. My wife and I will be going with Compassion at the end of October for 10 days, and we've been looking forward to the trip for months. We were also at the YMCA of the Rockies last week - what a beautiful place!

alli!!! that's SO exciting! i mean, i'm hurt that you won't be there my first week home, but i'll let it slide in light of the fact that you'll be serving children and families of children who have next to nothing ;) kidding. every single ounce of me is so happy you get to go do this. i can't wait to hear about it when you get home. and if you need a house/dog-sitter...you know who to call

I'm so excited for you, Alli. You're doing something I wish I could someday do. The last blogger trip was amazing. I loved reading everyone's blogs. I can't wait to hear all about it.
