Shatter Your Life & Announcement

Tonight the "Uganda girls" presented our testimonies about Africa to the church. Some of us spoke about one kid that touched our life, one organization or school that made us weep, the power of the worship in Uganda, the joy amidst such poverty.......it was amazing.

However. Through the many ministries we visited (Sixty Feet, Amazima, Canaan's Childrens Home, Return Ministries)......Rebekah's, whom we met at My Father's House ministry, blog over the darkness that inhabits her world left me stunned. Shattered.

Read about that here. But be ready. It will shatter your image of our safe, glossy, "dress up pretty for Sunday" Christ and give you one that is The. Almighty. Power. The Light in the Darkness. The One who can stand the lies no longer.....and will one day return with All His Passion to gather those who believe and discard those who lukewarmed their way through life.

It's real, folks.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And with that, my announcement is that from here on out.....every dime....not 10%, but every dime....of my furniture sales will go towards Sixty Feet Ministry. This ministry helps give hope to the hopeless in the Children's Prisons of Uganda...in the form of plumbing, liquid soap to mop their urine stained floors, mosquito nets to ward off malaria...anything and everything.

Why? Because of this......

Proverbs 24:12
"...Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know. God, who weighs our heart and keeps our souls, knows what we know, and holds us responsible to act."

Oh Flo...how I love your heart! That is the verse that got me so long ago when God first started talking to me about Africa. I was honored to serve along side you in Uganda and I am so blessed to call you my friend! Praying for you as this new year begins!

Wow, Flo...her story is so...there's just not words, but to say we do serve a MIGHTY and MOST POWERFUL GOD. I am proud of you. Your choices will shine brightly for HIM.

I would say I am speechless but since I have met you and gotten to know you (and your "Boog") through your blog and your testimony, I am not surprised at all. You have a heart made to not only love Him but to serve Him... I am sure of it that we are all built that way, but some of us never truly "see" the greatness that God wants to thrust upon us. You have not only had a glimpse but have made a choice to run to His light. Your courage gives me hope that my life is not "just a vapor." What you are doing WILL make a difference. I am proud to have met you, and to watch how God is moving in your life. And if there is anything, sanding, cleaning, prepping, baby sitting you only have to call. I will be there.

Flo, I love what you are doing! The furniture you refinish is unbelievable, but what's even better is your amazing heart that not only listens, but OBEYS God's word. I love that you are giving 100% of your profits. AMAZING.
