Missions Made Possible is a fine outfit that coordinates short-term “Mission Education Trips”. Here’s a summary from one participant of a trip that took place in August in Uganda in conjunction with LCMS World Mission and our official Partner Church in that country…

Our time was too short, but we accomplished our goal of building relationships with the church. The 18 of us from the USA worked with the people of the Lutheran Church to touch many people in need by:

* distributing eyeglasses
* providing medical care and offering health classes
* bringing sewing machines and offering sewing classes
* building pigpens, chicken coops and making bricks
* distributing clothing, shoes, mattresses, blankets, mosquito nets, books, toys
* doing vacation Bible School at two sites
* attending 3 different church services and washing the feet of the members
* showing the Jesus Film out in the bush on a beautiful evening
* visiting a school for girls run by CornerStone
* cheering at a soccer match between two churches
* taking a boat trip on the Nile River
* seeing amazing animals at the National Park

When you look at the list of things done and given out, you can see that God used our hands, feet, and voices to accomplish His work! The next trip could include your hands, feet and voices!

Please visit Missions Made Possible to see a couple short videos of our time in Uganda. Both are under 5 minutes and will give you a good visual of the people and the things we were able to do.

Thanks for all the support and prayers you lifted up to our group. Stay tuned for next year!
