Introduction I began this blog when I believed God was preparing me to come to Uganda in January 2010. God gave me courage and strength at that time through Hebrews 11:8. "By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going." God assured me that I may be entering an "unknown land," but He knew it and was preparing the way. I have been in Uganda for awhile now (from Jan. 2010 to end of April 2011 and August 2011 to ?) and I am so blessed as I live and work here. I love God's sovereignty - His ability to take anything in life and use it for His glory and our good. Thus I believe that no matter the journey God has called each of us on, it will be an adventure in faith and He invites us to "hang on for the ride." And I can guarantee that the blessings, challenges, joys and growth will be beyond what you could imagine. I can testify personally to this! :) So I invite you to join me on this "journey of faith." And, I pray that you too will draw closer to our Sovereign and Loving God on your own journey - wherever it may lead.

Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Whittling with wood because then I could shape it into something useful.
