I (Nick) am so excited! I am getting ready to go on my first mission trip.  My lovely wife, Sarah, has had the priveldge of going on mission trips as a youth, but when I was growing up, I wasn't involved enough in the church for it to even cross my mind.  Until now.  Because I get to spend my spring break on a mission trip! I'm going to Uganda (yes - in Africa)!
That is the short version; if you want the details, keep reading.  This all started when Sarah was trolling Facebook and catching up on the latest adventures of Courtney Skierra-Vaughn.  Courtney, and her huisband Chris, have been living in Africa off and on for the last few years, working on a variety of missionary and humanitarian projects.  They were back in the states, and Courtney had been diligently updating Facebook and her blog.  Sarah showed me their latest idea - building a boarding school in Uganda.  Sarah said that she was thinking about helping out.  I somewhat flippantly said that we should go with them - but then I realized that I meant that.  We should go.  I am going.  I will be heading to Uganda with Chris to help with the planning process for the school, and meeting the kids who need the school.  I feel so blessed to have this opportunity.  I know that God is doing great things in Uganda, and I am honored that He is sending me.  Isaiah 6:8, "then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said "Here I am. Send me!"
