Off and Away

Hello Friends!  I hope you're all doing well.  Some of you may have noticed how sporadic my posts have been over the past couple of weeks, and I'm here to say that they will be even more sporadic over the next couple as well.  Don't worry, I haven't decided to call it quits on blogging--or maybe you weren't worried at all.  Either way, I just want to fill you in on what's been going on that's kept me away and will continue to keep me away.

At the end of February, I shared about a short-term mission trip to Uganda I would be going on in this post.  Well, my friends, the time has come and I'm leaving this week!  I can't believe how quickly time has gone, but I'm very  excited for this trip.

There are plenty of things to look forward to while I'm away:

  •  While I won't be blogging in Uganda, one of our team members will be.  You can stay up-to-date on what we're doing on this blog: www.hands4uganda.blogspot.com 
  • Finagle A Foto Challenges are still on!  My co-hosts, Marilyn @ The Artsy Girl Connection and  Melanie @ Happy Jax are going to keep on keepin' on while I'm away.  Awesome, right?  Check out their sites for all of the new challenges, challenge winners, and other fun tidbits that come down.  They'll be having lots of fun while I'm away, you don't want to miss out!
  • I won't be posting my weekly From Your Kitchen to Mine posts, but I have an arsenal of recipes waiting to be shared with you all upon my return.  Who knows, maybe I'll dedicate a whole week to that! 
  •  I will have my camera with me on the trip and plan on snapping a lot of pictures.  Some will be posted on the website above while I'm gone, but many more will be posted when I return!
If you feel led to, please pray for our team as we travel to Uganda.  Here are some specific prayer requests: 

1) That God will work in and through this team
2) That we will have safety and health while in Uganda
3) For understanding of the people and culture of Uganda
4) For communication within the team
5) That God will pour out His Holy Spirit on us and the Ugandan people

Until next time!


  1. How exciting!! Have a safe trip, Kirsten! I will definitely keep you and your team in my thoughts and prayers as you embark on this new journey.

  2. Have a wonderful, safe trip! I wish you Godspeed!

  3. What a beautiful picture!! Have fun...

  4. Lovely shot. soak it all in. I have a friend who just returned from Uganda. Life changing, but I'm guessing you all ready know that. Be safe, and I look forward to seeing your photos when you return.

  5. God Bless you. and the land that you will travel to, and the people who will shape and serve you. I traveled to Kenya in 2006 and it is still in my "blood" Truly, we have only shadows of happiness until we travel and our hearts crack open to reveal unending connection to all that is unknown, and a family of grace, outside of our known, safe boundaries, waiting to be claimed.

  6. Blessings for you and your travel mates. How exciting.

  7. Have a safe trip! You're doing a wonderful thing! :)

  8. I was wondering how things were going! Be safe!
