|Robyn (17) and Blair (18) in Jinja, Uganda|

Neither Blair nor Robyn had a relationship with Jesus when they left the United States. Neither had even much of a belief in God. They didn't find God in Africa. In fact, Blair will tell you that it was God who found them. Both girls had buyers remorse after purchasing their tickets. Both knew that this trip could result in change ... even radical change ... and it was scary. Blair is a very reflective person and this possibility was circulating in her heart and mind. Even before the KLM aircraft touched down at the Entebbe Airport, Blair had simply told God that if He was real she was giving Him her life. It's amazing what God can do with just a simple "yes."

|She belongs to Jesus|
Yesterday I read Blair's blog titled My Uganda Days. I am amazed at the rate at which she is maturing. She is not just a person who has become spiritually alive, but become a new person as a result. She is maturing at an accelerated pace. It's amazing what God will do when a person keeps saying "yes."
Would you please click on the link above to read Blair's blog? Please read it and listen to the cry of her heart. She is willing to go anywhere and do anything if that is what she believes Jesus wants her to go and do. She had made some plans for this next year, but she is now yielded to letting the Lord direct her steps.
If you have any inclination, ability, or know of some opening that would apply to Blair's willingness, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may be a part of what God directs for these feet who belong to Jesus. Blair is willing to move to any location to do whatever God wants her to do. Can you help?
