In addition to hard work, the Outreach efforts of St. Paul’s have resulted in financial support in excess of $1,700 to The Youth Mission Trip, Confirmation Class retreat, Pat Hurd’s Mission Trip to The Blessed Mustard Seed Babies Home in Uganda, and NYOP (Neighborhood Youth Outreach Program) at St. Stephens in Wilkinsburg. The support has been made possible by money in the Operation budget and funds raised at various Outreach sponsored dinners. Consider matching any of these contributions out of the blessings The Lord has given you.
Pat Hurd’s January 2010 Trip to the Blessed Mustard Seed Babies home in Uganda
The following blog entries chronicle Pat Hurd, and Kathy and Wally LaLonde’s Mission of Hope trip to the Blessed Mustard Seed Babies home in Uganda in January.
Geoff Hurd shares with us this report on Jan. 14, 2011
The Missioners departed for Uganda on Tuesday Jan. 11, 2011. Thank you to Dana Fenner for driving the Pittsburgh contingent to the Airport. Bad weather in the US caused the group to miss their scheduled flight to Kampala but they were able to get tickets on the next plane.
Everyone from the US arrived safely in Hoima though several bags were delayed (these are on their way). As this report is written (noon Friday Jan. 14, 2011) the weather in Uganda is rain with a high temperature of about 75°F.
Everyone is doing well at Blessed Mustard Seed Babies Home. They have had an arrival celebration and meal with the children featuring cake for desert!. All are looking forward to a great visit!
Pat sends thanks and love to all of her family, neighbors and friends that have supported her through prayer, donations and encouragement. They have made this trip possible.
