GOD DID IT IN ONE DAY!!

He did it!
---
Our good and faithful God has done the impossible!!
In one day ALL the money has been raised to start drilling the well at Rapha Community School!!
(see previous post if your wondering exactly what we're celebrating)
---
Praise GOD!!!
I am absolutely overwhelmed with joy, shocked really, and in awe of our Father who loves us deeply!! He loves each and every child, mother, father, teacher and grandparent in Rapha Community! He knows and hears the cries of their hearts for health and happiness and yes,... clean drinking water!! One day. One day and God has brought hope, health and a bright future for hundreds of Ugandans! Wow!! Thank you Jesus!!
------
All the money has been raised for the well but we are going to leave up the donation button for the rest of the month of April for Ruth and her ministry. Ruth has 120 children she needs to be sponsored at Rapha School. Wouldn't it be awesome if we could raise enough money to pay for all 120 school children's' tuition and uniforms? We only have 116 more kids to go!! If you'd like to help with tuition for a semester($10) or uniforms ($7) just go to the donate button at the top of the blog, or go to KidsLake for more details. I can already see the smiles on their faces and the laughter from their mouths when Ruth shares the good news of not only a well.... but uniforms and tuition's paid!!! I can assure you there will be true African celebration filled with dancing and singing when the first pump of clean water flows!!
------
And while we continue to join in what God's doing in Uganda through financial blessings, let's also take this month to dedicate to praying for Ruth, Bethesda Int'l., and for the work on the well!! Let's join together and pray for these kids!! the teachers!!! and the community that will know that this water is from Jesus!!
I am trying to get a hold of Ruth even as I type, but with no luck! I cannot wait to hear her voice on the other end and share with her God's surprise!! I already know she wishes she could hug each and every one of you that has lifted her in prayer or helped bring a well to Rapha School.
Here I sit, still in awe!!!
God, your so good!
Your so faithful! You did it God!

Katie, This is just awesome. I am so thrilled and can't wait for you to get a hold of Ruth to let her know. We are very excited about Kids LAKE at our house and the opportunity to help the children with their education. Everyone has been doing extra chores today to earn money and they are planning their bake sale for next Saturday's garage sale.

Just signed up with Passion Africa. What a neat place. I can't wait to see who else joins.
