On June 19th  we, Abbie and Jack Fornadel will be heading to Uganda to serve with a group of about 30 people from the Nashville area.  We are being sent out through  147 Million Orphans, a foundation created to impact the lives of children through the provision of food, water, and medicine.  We are excited about this amazing opportunity to serve God in whatever capacity He has for us, to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus to our brothers and sisters in need in Uganda.

We will go Masindi, Uganda where we will be working with the children at Family Spirit Children's Home, an orphanage and school in a very poor part of the town.  The kids will range from 5-15, with most of them being younger.  The kids have very little, but the joy of the Lord.  We will be loving them, playing (VBS with crafts, reading Bible stories and singing) with them and building relationships!  One day we will have a birthday party for everyone!  Most of these kids have never celebrated their birthday! We will also have the privilege to finish the girls dormitory, showers and restrooms, by replacing mattresses and providing new sheets, so everyone will have REAL beds!

We will also be heading to Jinja, Uganda.  There will will serve Sangaalo, a baby home that the group in 2012 served.  Please go to the blog at 147millionorphans.org and read about what they did at th It is amazing!!!!

Please pray for our trip...for the people we will be serving there, for our group leaders (Bobby, Ryan and Janie), and that we will have open hearts as we serve the poorest of poor.

Also, each person will be able to bring a humanitarian bag (an extra suitcase filled with supplies...sheets, formula, diapers, clothing, sippy cups, blankets, reading books, medicines, Bibles, birthday supplies ect.)  Because most of our family and friends live outside the Nashville area we are asking for cash donations to help buy these supplies. If you would like to donate please click on the donation button.  Thank you for your consideration!

We return from Uganda on July 2.  We will be sending out a follow-up e-mail with pictures and stories from our time serving so you can share in our experience!  We cannot wait!!

Thank you so much!

Love,

Jack and Abbie
