Fabulous People I’ve Never Actually Met, Part Two

All right, interpeeps – here’s the second (and final) round of links for bloggers who are going on the Compassion trip to Uganda.

Keely (the O-fficial photographer)
Joe (he even has a second blog) (FANCY!)

By the way, there are times when it becomes slightly surreal that I’m taking a trip to AFRICA with other people who blog.

This would be one of those times.

I’m telling y’all. God will use anything.

Even the internet.

  1. I’m so excited to ready everyone’s account of what is happening in Africa. May God bless you abundantly for accepting this challenge!

  2. Thanks for the linkys. I can’t wait to read about the adventure. Off to get to know your travelling companions!

  3. there’s not enough chick bloggers on those lists.

    glad you are representin’

  4. So excited about what God’s gonnna do!

  5. I think I’ll have to bookmark everyone for Headless Girl-She wants to do missions in Africa and this would be a great read for her!

    Blessings and have FUN!

    And yes, God uses everything for His purposes. :-)

  6. I was just sitting on my couch this morning praying for things going on in my life and I found that I spent considerable time praying for my friend Holly and her husband’s job situation. I stopped mid-conversation with God and just thanked Him for this uncommon friendship and bond that only He could have orchestrated…ALL FROM BLOGGING!

    Reminds me of Mandisa’s song, God-Speaking…

    Who knows how He’ll get a hold of us!!


  7. Oh how I wish you were comin’ to Uganda through Joberg!! I could HOOK YOU UP with some awesome coffee from Mugg ‘N Bean. (or so I’m told- I don’t really drink coffee but the people I see while eating there seem to enjoy theirs.)

    Savor your time in here in Africa. May God bless your trip, and may you get involved heart and soul. I know I have since being here.

  8. In my humble, highly-biased opinion, I am Very Much Looking Forward to hearing from the fabulous women on the trip, including Rocks of course and Miss Whatshername from lifechurchtv. Thanks for the links!

  9. I hope you have an incredible time, and that the blessings you give and receive through this experience stay in your heart for a long time.

  10. Speak it sista! The Christian Worldview- God uses everything for his glory! Even the internet! Amen!

  11. That is SO exciting!! I would love to go on a mission trip to Africa – all in God’s timing :)
    BTW: we are going to be in the local area this weekend getting our praise on at BH!!!
    Maybe we will finally meet :)
    Much love,

  12. I’m thinking Savannah might pale in comparison…=)

  13. Oh, I know that He is going to use you…and in the process, make much of Himself! I am praying for a time of joy that is so palpible that you can feel it. I can tell you for certain…it is going to mark your life. I have a feeling that you are going to bring many of those precious ones home with you. I can see your driveway now…filled with children :) Really, I’m just kidding. In your heart, I know you will love deeply each one and bring them back, so that you won’t even know how your heart can hold it all. But it can! Faithful, dear one! Praying for you!

  14. Dang it, do you not realize my feed reader is full and I’m already dealing with conflicing emotions about how much time I spend reading blogs? And you keep linking to great writers and ones that I want to read!!!

    Seriously, I hope things go well, and you enjoy eating your typhoid pills (I found it odd to be ingesting a live virus).

  15. I have to tell you, Boomama, God has already used you! Our family has talked over the years about sponsoring a child through Compassion. We applied to go to Africa (Kenya) as missionaries several years ago, but it didn’t work out. Still our heart is with that country.

    Since it is the beginning of the year, I had reevaluated our budget and had an “extra” $50 per month that I really wanted to use toward some kind of chartable cause.

    Along come your posts about your trip to Africa, and it all clicked! We found a little girl who was born within a few days of my daughter who is from Kenya and have chosen to sponsor her through Compassion! My Sally has always wanted a sister, being the only girl with four brothers. This is such a neat way to bring all of those things together–Africa, girl, wise use of the money, etc.

    So all that to say, THANK YOU for bringing this to my mind and being the catalyst for this little girl entering our lives.

    I can’t wait to see how you are used once you are actually THERE!!

  16. I know my buddies have told you but that’s our guy! Our preacher, pastor, friend! Phil’s a hoot and he loves him some Dr Pepper….

    PS – A few of us that read your blog over in West Texas will be in Bham at the end of Feb to speak at one the churches…. We would love for you to be there, too…

  17. Sweet. When do you get back? I’m excited to read about the trip…

  18. “I’m telling y’all. God will use anything.

    Even the internet.”

    Reminds me of one of my favorite verses:

    …for God so loved the world that he gave Al Gore to invent the Internet, that whosoever believes in him (Al Gore) will not perish (except by greenhouse gases) but shall have eternal life (and higher taxes).

  19. He will use anything. I’m glad you are being obedient.

  20. Hey, somebody I’ve heard of…I’ve read Joe’s Evangelical Outpost blog off and on for a few years. How neat!

  21. Hey Boo,
    My adopted parents are missionarys in Uganda. I am going with them in June for 3 weeks to Uganda. It is amazing there!! My livingroom motif is all Uganda,sculptures and Pictures of the people.

  22. I’m so excited about this trip. I can’t wait to see how God will use you bloggers to get the word out about Compassion. What a wonderful program. We have been truly blessed by sponsoring kids, that’s for sure.

  23. All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. :>)

    Even the Internet.

    I’m thinkin’ you are called.

  24. You have really got me thinking with all this Sophie! I am really getting into the photography thing and maybe (in the not too distant future) God can use my skills to do something like what you guys are doing. That is so very awesome!!! I can’t wait to “take” the trip with you all.

  25. How awesome this is that you are going on this trip with these great other people! I’ve been on several mission trips and they sure did change my life forever! I can’t wait to hear about it all through your eyes though….I’m quite sure it will be super funny!! =)

    Boomama’s Africa Adventure!! Surely to be something to look foreword to!! Has Oprah called yet?? =) Surely she will now!!! lol!!

  26. I love your blog and can’t wait to read about your African adventure! What do your parents and Martha think about it?

  27. Can’t wait to meet you…Chicago in less than a month…

    Uganda, Here we come!!!
