Wanted to send a huge thanks to all who prayed and gave financially towards this trip. Our team had a great time serving about 140 street children alongside of Abby Tracy, her husband David and their team. We had a wonderful time loving these kids during camp though at times was a challenge because they are operating out of survival mode due to life on the street. However, we hear their experience at camp greatly impacted their lives as several accepted Jesus in their heart and Abby's programs have increased in size since camp. Above is a short clip capturing some of the scenery, our time with the children and you may even see me holding an interesting animal!

Several mentioned that they forgot or were unable to donate towards the trip before I left. Have no fear there is still a need as I am still raising the final amount for my trip. If you would like to contribute, please mail checks to Providence Baptist Church 6339 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh, NC 27612. You may make your check out to Providence Baptist Church and place a sticky note on the check with Jenny Harris Uganda Missions trip 2012.

Mission Trip to Uganda


On July 18th a handful of folks and I will venture for  13 days to the bustling city of Kampala, Uganda. While there, we will partner with Abby Tracy and her husband David (missionaries who live in Uganda) to host a vacation bible school for street children at a christian camp in the outskirts of the city. Also, in coordination with the local church, we will host a men's conference in the slums and participate in community outreach efforts in a local village. Through these events it is our central desire to share the hope of Christ and encourage those who serve faithfully in this region of the world.

This past spring God touched my heart for the needs of street children in Uganda through a book called Kisses for Katie, a page turning story of a young women in her 20's who radically gave up a comfortable and predictable life to live in Uganda and adopt 14 girls. Her story inspired me to sign up for the trip to love on Ugandan street children and not be afraid to eat goat meat while doing it:)

Ways you can help
1. Pray.
please pray for unity in serving together, that we would be the hands and feet of Christ, that we would be an encouragement/blessing to the missionaries and believers, for receptive hearts who hear about the hope of Christ, for us to have flexibility and for health and traveling mercies for the duration of our trip

2. Give. 
the trip cost is $2,900 and am raising support to cover all expenses
