30 DAYS....A note from Jolene and Julia

We depart the U.S in less than one month. The planning process alone has been a roller coaster ride full of some great smiles and also difficult times. We have been busy collecting everything we will need for our time in Uganda. We've even began the packing process to make sure that space will not be an issue at the last minute. Currently we are busy planning out the final details for our coffee house this Saturday evening (see my previous post for the details-- and BE THERE!) 
At this time we want to thank all of our family and friends who have graciously supported us along the way. It's hard to believe that the countdown is on. With only 4 weeks left, we still need to raise $4,000 of our $10,000 goal. We have been assured that this an attainable goal and know that we can reach it with your help. Maybe you would consider giving monthly while we are away. Please ask us how this can be done. 
Thanks again for all your support, 
~Jolene and Julia

Coffee House Fundraiser

Interested in impacting the world…Come out to our Coffee House Fundraiser

WHEN: Saturday, May 14th 7-10pm
WHERE: Christine's Cafe

             555 Greenfield Road
             Lancaster, PA
                  (in the same complex as Issac's)

WHY: To raise funds to build a home for Orphans in Uganda, Africa

There will be live music, Christine‘s coffee masterpieces, delicious baked items, and great company.

"With Uganda having a mind disturbing 2,600,000 orphans, a million of which have been directly due to aids, the need for church based orphan care is even greater.Father’s Divine Love Ministries is setting up a 3rd Orphan’s home which is to be designed in a village setting. 8 homes are being developed on a 3 acre piece of land. Each home will host a maximum of 10 kids in each full house under the care of a couple. The community will therefore host a maximum of 80 children growing up in an environment of family.
We all know that family is the strongest and most import unit of society and its brokenness has generational implications. The solution to this is to raise up children in families and that is why FDLM can’t drop the practice of modelling family rather than subjecting children under institutionalized care." ~ Pastor David Zijjan, founder of FDLM
