East Africa 2011

As many of you know, I have been blessed to serve and learn from the people of Uganda on 4 short-term mission trips over the last 5 years. In exactly 13 weeks from today, I will get the awesome opportunity to travel to East Africa again to share the good news of Jesus Christ with a few villages in Uganda and Kenya! On June 30th, I will travel with Midland Bible Church to Tuber, Uganda and help plant a church there. My dad and my sister will be with me on that trip which I am so excited about! When the Midland Bible team leaves, I will get to stay behind and continue working at the school I got to teach at last summer. At the end of my trip, I will hop the border and finish up with one last church planting team from Cypress Creek Church in Wimberley, Texas. I met this team in Kenya last year and can't wait to work alongside them again. All in all, I'll be in Africa for about a month. Fortunately, some trip will be financially provided for. However, I still need about $2,500 to cover my living expenses in-country and also to help fund the church building for the new group of believers we are anticipating in Kenya. If you are interested in supporting me, please write your check to Midland Bible Church with "Julie Brown Uganda" on the memo line and send it to my home address: 4904 Polo Parkway, Midland, Texas, 79705. Your gift is tax deductible. Most importantly, I would love your prayers for the month of July! I would appreciate prayers for:

  • smooth travels to and from Africa and safety in crossing the Kenyan border.

  • my health as I deal with food allergies in a foreign environment.

  • creativity, flexibility, and an easy-to-understand American accent.

  • my sweet mom and grandparents as they hold down the fort at home.

  • receptive hearts for everyone who hears the gospel on this trip.

If there is anything I can be praying about for you or your family while I am gone or even between now and then, please let me know via email or Facebook. I will try to keep this blog updated when I'm in Africa, but if you're interested in receiving daily email updates about the trip, let me know. Words can not express how thankful I am for your love and support!
