It's Been Way Too Long

WOW, it's been way to long since we wrote!   I cannot believe two months have passed since last  writing  while leaving Uganda.  But there it is in black and white on the calendar.  Two months?  Really?  Where has the time gone??

To begin with, upon arriving home we had to send out year end donation receipts to our generous donors.   We had contracted with a company to help us, "Donor Snap", but they took much longer than we anticipated and it still required a lot of our time. 

Next, was the new concept that I had to be ready for the CPA and the tax man on two levels.  The first of course is our personal return.  That was pretty simple given our past year's income.  What I did not count on was the time consuming posting of each donation and other items over the last year for IVO.  It is now complete & finished and we are on our way.

Please do not think for a moment that the ministry has slowed or stopped in the past two months.  To the contrary!  It is increasing at an ever expanding rate.  We have three team members on the ground in Uganda; Shawn & Sarah Ferrell and Emma Saunders, who are accomplishing many things for the orphans. 

Shawn and Sarah have been busy working with our feeding programs - keeping the children with food supplies and also developing strategies for the future.      (I will share on one of these stories in the next few days.)

Emma, is in charge of the medical, "Ruby's Friends" for IVO.  We now have completed three operations for children with great needs and will fill you in with more details in the next few days.    She is also busy establishing the vision the Lord has called her to.

So there is a quick update with stories to follow in the weeks ahead. 

To our generous donors we again thank you!   Your gifts make everything we are doing possible!

May God Bless You,  Dwight
