the long awaited time is here! anita and i are leaving for uganda tonight!! we are very excited and we are all ready to go! THANKS to all the people who came out on thursday to pray for us and helped us count out the medicines. YOU GUYS TOTALLY ROCK!!!

Here are a few prayer items, please keep us in your prayers!

1. each of us have 3 luggage to check in. one personal and 2 china bags that are filled with donations! we hope british airway won't give us any problems and let us check in all 3 for free. yikes! and that we didn't exceed the baggage weight limit.

2. energy - our trip demands lots of energy as we go from different places all the time. uganda can be hot sometimes and there's no AC! haha. so pray that we will keep ourselves energize as we minister to the children in uganda!!!

3. health - the air in uganda is quite dusty. last year both of us got some sort of upper respiratory congestion. and the children love coughing on us. so pray that we can keep ourselves HEALTHY!

4. loving and compassionate heart - pray that we may model ourselves after Jesus in His ministry. that we will not only minister to the physical needs of the Ugandan people. But we will also share the good news and pray for them as well.

5. team dynamics - very lastly. pray that anita and i will focus our gaze upon Jesus. especially in moments when we work together!

**we will be meeting our sponsored children from WORLD VISION and WATOTO!!!! soo exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we'll be constantly updating on the blog!!! so next time u read the update, we'll be UGANDA!!!

anita and i have been super busy lately! but first of all, congrats to anita for graduating! now she's officially a Physician Assistant!

even though our lives are filled with ministry committments, school, work and such. God has been blessing us so much!

Praise God that we have raised more than our required amount of $8000! Thanks to everyone for your generousity!! In addition, we are still collecting donations!!! what we need the most right now is CHILDREN CHEWABLE VITMAINS!

Many people have asked us: Why Chewable vitamins and not gummy ones? haha. we know it's an unusual request. but last year we had an incident where someone donate a costco-sized gummy vitamins and they melted in the heat, into a gigantic CHUNK of gummy! YES! gummy bears melt in heat!!! so we don't want to risk the precious vitamins again. :)

we are also looking for HANGERS. more specifically, hangers for children clothes.

other than that, i would like all of you to continue to pray for us. that in the midst of our crazy lives. Please pray that Anita and I will spend quality time dwelling in the presence of our Lord, so that we will focus on the real reason why we are going to Uganda. And be open that we will be molded by our Lord.
