Things are becoming a bit more clear...

The last 3 weeks I've been in California, Minnesota, Arizona, Texas and back to California... It has been a great time establishing new relationships for Gaba Bible Institute with new partners, churches and foundations...

To date I've been able to raise $40,000 for renovations to the new campus and generate more interest for our Scholarship Fund... the goal is to raise $250,000 to get the campus up to capacity for 300 students and to raise 50 new scholarships... throughout the trip I have been encouraged by friends of GBI all over the US...

The GBI staff has also done an amazing job holding down the fort which has allowed me the freedom to be away for this long stretch...

For our family things are also becoming a bit more clear... it looks like we going to build our own house... many friends along the way have been a great encouragement in this direction... economically it makes sense to build rather than rent since we are looking at another 10-50 years in Uganda... and from a ministry stand point it makes sense to leave a home for the next Principal of the school...

The boys schooling is still a bit fuzzy but as we step out I am sure that things will become a bit more clear... and for now they can finish the school year at Rainbow before we have to make any major decisions...

Today is the last flight and I get to see Christine and the boys for the first time in 3 weeks... it's about time!

That's the latest...

It's wonderful to hear how God is providing for GBI, and to hear that you are getting direction regarding your home. I think building sounds like a great plan. amd it's awesome to hear you say you could be here for the next 50 years. Blessings!
