Tomorrow my little brother leaves for Uganda. He'll be there until July 6th and is going with Eternal Impact Ministries. They will be serving alongside university students from United Faith Chapel at Kampala International University. Together, the team and the East African students will share and demonstrate the gospel in schools, orphanages, prisons, and slums around Kampala.
When asked why he was going, here is what Mark said; "I am going on this trip simply out of obedience. 'Jesus said, If you love Me, you will obey what I command (John 14:15). Jesus didn't say, If you love Me you will obey Me when you feel called or good about doing so... If we love we obey. Period.' -Frances Chan (Crazy Love) We have been called as a church to go, and that is what I am doing. I am going."
I love my brother's heart to love others even if it means traveling around the world to do so. He's been all over this world doing mission work and I love bragging about him. Here is the team's blog, they will be updating it while in Uganda; http://eternalimpact.org/blog/impact-team-blog
We love you Uncle Sparky! We are praying for you, your team, and the great things God is going to do!
