Thank you and God Bless all of you who participate in “The Little Dresses for Africa” project. In January of 2012, I journeyed with Hot Springs Baptist Church(Hot Springs, Arkansas) on a medical mission trip to Uganda. I had the privilege of distributing your dresses (10 boxes containing 25 pounds each of dresses) to girls in Jinja and Koboko, Uganda. I wish each of you could have seen the sparkle in the eyes and the smiles on faces as they put on their dress. For many you knew, by the look on their face, it was the first dress perhaps the only dress, they had ever received and with shy radiant smiles they all gave thanks to you for their gift.
This is truly a mission work that God is in charge of, you ask how do I know this. Well, first I happen to meet a friend of mine who I told about my trip to Africa. She then told me about this project that her young girls church group was involved in to make dresses for girls in Africa and the web site with all the information. God got me in connect with Rachel, made sure the boxes were mailed and arrived on time to be packed for the trip. Some how all the dresses got packed into our allowed luggage. Even when there were struggles with the airport about the luggage,it was as if God was making sure those dresses got through. So after 21 hours of flying and 10 hours on a van ride your dresses made it to Koboko, Uganda without one dress lost or misplaced. Believe me when I say that God knew where those dresses needed to go and he got them there; I was just along to witness His glory.
Thank you again
Your Sister In Christ
