Preparing for our trip to Uganda, East Africa

Dear Prayer partners, Welcome to our blog. In the coming months we will be posting prayer requests and updates as we prepare for our trip to Uganda, East Africa. We will leave for Toronto on July 14, and depart for Africa the following day. Dr. Donna Morhous, Carol and Rob Robison will coordinate our eye clinics, which will be our primary project, Keith McEntire will lead the hygiene workshops. Keith's wife Melissa, their daughter Rachel, along with Norma Jean Angelo, Sally Ferguson, Lana Lanphier, Teresa Stevens, and myself will assist with our projects. While in Africa, Sally and I will be leading conferences for Pastor's and their wives. Keith, Rob, Teresa, and I will be preaching at various times as well. For now, we would be honored if you could pray for Donna, her husband Jeff, son Jeffery, and their soon to be daughter Ella as they go through the adoption process for her. Please pray for Keith, Melissa, and Rachel as they will be staying in Africa so Melissa can teach 1st grade at Heritage International School in Kampala. Keith is still trusting God for the role that He has for him while they serve the next two school terms in Kampala. Also pray for Tim and Colleen Stevenson, our missionaries located in Kampala as Colleen has recently been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She has had one chemo treatment to date and is anticipating surgery sometime in June. This is a very challenging time for them as she has gone back to Western Canada and Tim is trying to coordinate interns and workcamps while trying to find time to join his wife. Pray for our team that we will continue to bond together in such a way that we will be seen as Holy Spirit filled servants, equipped with God's power to make a difference in the days leading up to and including our time in Africa. Blessings, Pastor Roy Ferguson
