Visiting Orphans Trip

The trip God is sending me on is through Visiting Orphans.  They describe the trip as:

Our teams will be working with the 320 children at Hope Community Center. From there our team will travel to Eldoret where we will minister to the children at the Grace of God's Children's Project.  Lastly we will work with Fiwagoh Mission Orphanage. This orphanage is run by a former orphan who dedicated his life to rescuing orphans after realizing the amazing love and care of His Heavenly Father.  This trip will also include a wonderful full day of sight-seeing, which may include a 1-2 day safari or another fun adventure to see the true beauty of Africa.  We can't wait to share more details with you as they come in. Stay tuned!  The Uganda portion of this trip will likely include days spent at My Father's House orphanage, Return Uganda Ministries and with the 400 sponsored children of Amazima.

Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.
Isaiah 1:17
I believe God calls some to be goers and others to be senders.  At this time in my life, I need senders to be able to go.  Senders fulfill the above command from God in His Scriptures as fully as goers do.
The total cost for the trip is 3500.  To help with expenses for this trip, your tax-deductible donation to Visiting Orphans, can be made on my behalf at their website.  The donate link is on the top right!  Be sure to choose October 12-24 Uganda/Kenya Trip in Gift Designation and enter "Shelley Brown" into Team Member's Name.
