Dear Family and Friends,
We want to share some exciting news – we have purchased land in Uganda!! We have been working on this land deal for a long time, but we heard yesterday from Junior that we have purchased not one, but two plots of land. So this land is nearly twice as big as the 6 acre plot we thought we got before and the price was less than we offered before! So we are just praising God!! I will send some pictures and more details of the land as soon as I get some!
We are currently making preparations for our next trip. We have a team of 7 who will be going July 7-21. There will be six coming from Oklahoma and one coming from China! From Oklahoma will be Kent Ritchie, Jess Ritchie, Beth Ritchie, Hugh Merrill, Donna & me. Summer, is a young college student who became a believer 2 years ago in China and now wants to join us on mission in Africa! We are excited to go and see the new land, and to spend time loving on Junior’s children…all 140 or so of them!
If you would like to help with the expenses of the trip, that would be great! I know all of us are praying for God’s provision so that we can go. Also we plan to take smaller children size clothes this time. If you would like to collect or buy a few things here is what we will be taking: clothes (including underwear) for 3- 12 year olds. Most of them are smaller than the same age American child, so keep that in mind! But they come in all sizes, so whatever you want to donate we will probably find a child who it will fit!
We have our sponsorship up to about 40 children so that is great! Thanks for all you are doing!! We are planning an Informational Meeting for this Friday in Perry at the Bakehouse (611 Delaware). We will be sharing with the people of Perry who might be interested in helping with Two Roads Foundation’s ministry in Uganda! If you would like to come or you have a friend you could invite please do! We will have a very informal program, light refreshments and good fellowship!
Again we want to thank you for all you do for the children. We will be getting an update as they finish this next session at school.
This is the God we serve: Isaiah 6:1-4
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above Him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.”
At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
Please pray for God to fulfill His plan and purpose in this ministry, in the purchase of this land, in discipling these people for His glory. Please pray for each of us to be abiding in Him daily and just following the leadership of His Holy Spirit; that we would be blameless before Him and able to hear His Spirit leading.
Oh, let us give praise to this King of kings and Lord of lords who is high and exalted, seated on a throne; whose robe filled the temple! Where the seraphim cover themselves and cry out “holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory!” Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord!
May God richly bless you,
Greg & Donna
