2.28.14. Got an email from Joel updating me on the girls and with a few pictures of Clara. She apparently said, “I love you and I miss you and I like you and you are my best friend and I’m eating everything and pizza and my bandaid fell off my owie!” I love you and miss you too, sweet girl! 😍☺️ February 28, 2014 at 06:36PM28 Feb
A few little details from our hotel in Dubai. We made it!! Super long flight, not much sleep, but thankful that our needs have been met at every turn, including with this hotel room where we were able to get a shower and hopefully we will get some rest! Back to catch another flight early in the morning to our final destination: Entebbe, Uganda!! #tapmediamissionuganda #adventuresinairporting February 28, 2014 at 01:28PM28 Feb
@samantha_jovan enjoying all the little gifts we found in our seats. #tapmediamissionuganda #adventuresinairporting February 27, 2014 at 10:44PM27 Feb
Our plane… Double decker. And two jetways. One for the near side, one for the far side. We’re off to Dubai!!! #tapmediamissionuganda #adventuresinairporting February 27, 2014 at 10:43PM27 Feb
Love this of @Kristinshyla. But the best part? The girl walking by who’s wondering what in the world is happening. We’re getting a little delirious. It’s the middle of the night in Uganda, and we should be sleeping to help us get ready for that, but we’re not. 😜 #tapmediamissionuganda #adventuresinairporting February 27, 2014 at 06:56PM27 Feb
Less than two weeks until I head to Uganda! I’m gathering all my items to pack in one place, and as I’m doing that, I’m packing a GIANT duffel bag of things to take to the kids at Arise and Shine (the babies’ home we’ll be working at).
I have a few things to pack in that duffel bag already, but I would love for it to be FULL! Or even to have to take TWO of them! Can you help me fill up that suitcase??
Arise and Shine has given us a list of things that they need:
***I NEED TO RECEIVE ALL ITEMS BY FEBRUARY 25, 2014***
…ITEMS NEEDED for ARISE & SHINE…
Baby formula for infants
Tylenol or Paracetamol (pain relief and fever meds)
*Clothes 0-5 years (boys and girls)
*Shoes/sandals 0-5 Years (boys and girls)
Disabled children equipment (any thing to help them get mobile, toys that can stimulate them, etc)
Tooth brushes and tooth paste
*Gently used clothes and shoes should be fine. Anything would be such a blessing to these kids.
The above items are what Arise and Shine really needs. I know that so many of you have businesses and Etsy shops with items that would be such an added blessing to these kids to go above and beyond just basic needs. Below is a list of other items that would also be so great to bring to the home. Keep in mind the items are for kids ages 0-5. It would also be amazing if you wanted to include a little note to the kids that I could read to them!
…EXTRA BLESSING ITEMS…
Coloring books or drawing pads
…or anything else you can think of!
If you want to help out with some of these items, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can either give you my address for you to send me the items or we can work on coordinating pickup.
Thank you so much for all your help!! I can’t wait to share all these things with the kids in Uganda!
