Quick Hello

July 4, 2010

Sending a quick update from South Africa! We’ve been here about a wek, and have already been through Jo-burg and are now in East London. We’ve been busy everyday, tomorrow is a semi-rest day (we get to sleep in and then are going to some kind of lion park), that’ll be a good break. In a couple days we’ll be flying up to Uganda where we’ll be another 17ish days. There it’ll be more nonstop work every day. I’m really looking forward to it!

If you’re looking for more frequent updates, please visit the team blog here. Love and miss you all! I really appreciate all the emails and notes of encouragement. It is always great to hear from home! Hope all is well, Happy 4th of July!

The Time is Drawing Near

April 26, 2010

It’s been a long few months fundraising and getting all the details finalized for this trip. We’re now just over 60 days away from leaving on our way to Africa! It’s so exciting to see everything falling into place as the final arrangements are put together. But the work is not done, and your help is still needed! Funds still need raising for this trip to happen. I encourage each of your to prayerfully and thoughtfully consider donating and supporting the efforts of this trip.

One of the more exciting details being finalized is our visit to the northern region of Uganda, in Gulu. Here we will be bringing music to the village and hope to the people.

I ask that you would please consider being a part of the vision, and consider supporting this journey to serve.

Details on how you can support may be found here. I encourage you especially to consider purchasing a shirt.

I would also like to offer a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to all who have already offered their support in this trip! Without each of you, this trip can not happen.

Thank you so much! And please, share this with your friends.

Hi all!

It’s been a good few weeks since launching this site and getting my fundraising underway for my trip this summer. The response from everyone has been astounding! But the work is not done yet -there is still much that needs to be done in order to reach my end total of $4,000.

In the past weeks here is what has happened:

Welcome to the mind of Sam. Nothing too interesting to see just yet, but rest assured, I’m just getting started.
