Full to the Brim and Empty

Field Retreat: April 2012- most recent field gathering
Next week a momentous thing happens.  It is both exciting and a little depressing.  Every single WGM Uganda missionary will be on the field at the same time.  No one is in the states on furlough!  We'll all be together!  But the flipside of that coin- there is no one officially raising support to come to Uganda as new missionaries.

Every single house we have is full to the brim!  Happy times! 
But the recruit pipeline is empty.  Sad day!

On September 22 we will all be gathering in Kampala to celebrate God's goodness in bringing us all here, to strategize and set goals.  Pray that is a fruitful and encouraging time as a field. 

Will you make this a matter for serious prayer?  There are men, women and families He is calling to Uganda- will you pray that He makes a way for them?  Will you ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers?  Will you get on your knees and ask Him to give them all the courage they need to follow Him to Africa?  Would you even be so brave as to ask Him if you are the answer to our prayers for new missionaries??
