Africa Unite!

We have a new person to add to our nightly prayers. "Please bless Sami in Africa." My awesome niece Sami is with a group of BYU students volunteering in UGANDA, Africa. She has been wonderful to set up a blog and keep us posted on her adventures.
It has been a good opportunity for our family to learn about that part of the world and realize how much we have!!!

If anyone wants to share in the adventure check out: http://www.iwentdauganda.blogspot.com

Also, this is a great cause to DONATE to. The students aren't allowed to give money to people but they use money to help buy commodities or supplies to train villagers how to be able to get out of poverty (like building campstoves)
I'm usually pretty stingy with my $ but after reading about Africa I feel a call to serve. A little of our money goes a long way there. Brynn is giving one of her $2 and Kate is giving $3.

For more info or to give go to www.help-international.org click on DONATE NOW and dedicate any amt. under the name Samantha Lynch. She would really use the funds to be able to help the people there.

What a great way to do service and learn geography at the same time!
