If we live truly, we shall see truly. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The one place that I must visit is Uganda.  For ten years, I have sponsored a young lady there through Compassion International.  Her name is Annet, and we have corresponded over time with so many letters and pictures.  She was only ten years old when we first began our friendship — she is now attending nursing school and plans to work in the city at a hospital when she has finished her education.  She loves the Lord Jesus truly and shares His love with people wherever she goes.

At the closing of her letters to me, she always writes, I pray for your safe journey to Uganda.  It has long been my dream to visit her, but whenever I have a little extra cash for the plane ticket, you know something else comes up.

Now I will make a plan:

The next Compassion group tour is in November, and the cost is $4,200.

I need to determine if I should go this year, or make the really out-of-character, long-range goal to go in 2012.

And I need to pray for God’s help to shower down on me, and His grace to be sufficient for all the details that need to be worked out.

I can do this!  Truly I can!
