Hunter and I are going to Uganda this suumer with Lifeline Adoptions services mission arm, (un)adopted. We will blog more about it as we get closer to the date and definitely as we return. I am going to post the mission support letter that I have been sending out to family and friends so you can learn a little more about it. Please keep our family in your prayers as we prepare for this mission trip to serve our Lord among the unadopted of Uganda.
Dear Family and Friends,
We write to you with great joy and excitement over how God is working in our family and our daily lives. Our children are growing up so fast and are showing more and more desire to serve our Savior. We are at a stage in our lives where we have one child (Hunter) with his own car and another who is in diapers (Micah) with eight in between which definitely keeps us busy and in much prayer. Joli and I have a great desire to see our children have a heart to “Go and make disciples” Matthew 28:19, and to go where “no one else has preached” Romans 15:20.
Hunter and I will have the first of many opportunities for the Hardwicks to take the gospel abroad as we will be traveling to Uganda east Africa with Lifeline Adoption Services mission arm, (Un)adopted. We will be there for 9 days serving and ministering to the orphans and the homeless children of Kampala, Uganda. It will not only give us an opportunity to be Christ’s hands and feet to this world’s forgotten children through service oriented projects but also to share the glorious gospel of a Savior and Father who will never leave nor forsake them. We are excited to reflect the admonition in James 1:27, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
As we go, we ask above all else for your prayers and petitions on our behalf. Please pray for open hearts to hear and receive the gospel, for safe and disease free travels, for strength and peace for our family while we are apart, and for the funds necessary to make this trip possible. Please pray and consider supporting us in this mission as we will need to raise more than $5000 for the trip with the majority of that being plane tickets. Any financial help that you can provide would be a great blessing as you partner with us in our mission to these orphans.
Sean and Hunter Hardwick
