Final Stretch...

I've been trying to down load a video update for a few days... but apparent uploading 700 MB of video is even difficult with internet in the US... or there was a major operator error... so here's the latest... in print form...

4 days until we board a plane for Uganda and we have been able to raise $65,000 of the $100,000 necessary to get GBI up to the national standards for accreditation... We also received $15,000 for the GBI library to get some major upgrades...

I am exhausted and encouraged... Monday night I took a red-eye to Minnesota to meet some Christian Hedonists... then jumped on another red-eye back to LAX on Tuesday... yesterday was 3 meetings in the OC... then today I'm cruising by 2 other churches and a donor dessert (and hopefully finding time to pick up a new pair of running shoes)...

Friday is a trip to the LA Zoo with Christine and the 2 little monkeys... Saturday we pack... Sunday at Shoreline... Monday morning the plane leaves for Uganda at 6 AM...

I guess I could use twitter for all of this... but loading video was challenging enough... a twitter account might stretch my internet abilities beyond what they can bear...

Praying for your fundraising in these last few days. God is able! Enjoy the last little bit of time you have left here with your family. Hope to see you in Uganda in September.
