Looking back we can see God’s faithfulness in leading us to partner with World Venture for long-term impact in Uganda. We are hoping to find temporary housing in Grand Rapids while we are here in the states for the next few months working and building our team.  Let us know if you know of any options!

  1. Dear Micah and Betsy – and Porter, of course,

    I’ll pray for you, and let you know if I hear of any temporary housing while you wait to raise enough money to return to Uganda. Connie emailed me, said they were glad to have you committed to World Venture, and trusted you could raise the support necessary. Glad you could sell your photos to replace your stolen equipment. Sorry about your dogs in Uganda who were poisoned. Every family should have a dog!

    Thanks for coming to see me. I wish you a blessed new year, during which you will also be able to return to Uganda.

    Love,

    Aunt Thea

  2. Hey!

    Great update! Thanks for sharing!

    We are doing well. We had a great time seeing our families for Christmas and new year. Now we are back and I’m getting ready to start my new job with Frontiers. Kristin will continue to work on her masters classes and work full-time. We are excited to see what God will have in store for us this coming year.

    Blessings mis amigos!!!
