Our love for Uganda began when Megan studied abroad in Mukono, Uganda in 2008. She applied feeling very vulnerable and scared and was accepted. After clearly feeling God's direction, she reluctantly went to spend a semester living with a Ugandan family, doing missions and attending Uganda Christian University. God used each experience there to reveal himself and what would later be a major calling. Chris also spent a couple weeks providing medical care to rural Rwanda and fell in love with the people of Africa. Both our hearts have been broken for the poor and hurting of the world. God commands us to look after the orphans and widows in their distress (James 1:27) and this is one of the ways we feel called to do just that. After praying about when to adopt, God made it clear...DO IT FIRST! Adoption is our first option, it is clearly how God wants to grow our family and we are so honored to follow the call. We plan to begin our adoption in 2014 but want to start raising funds as we also feel called to do a debt free adoption. Thank you so much for partnering with us and in fulfilling God's call to love orphans. We appreciate not only your financial support but also covet your prayers as we step out in faith.
We are #2 on the wait list and could get "the call" any day now!!
