Each month we want to highlight one of our Missions Partners who help spread the Gospel throughout the world.
This month we are focusing on the Mighty River Project, founded and led by Erin & Scott Littleton who are a big part of our church family here at Bridges. Here is a chance to get to know them a little better.
One of the success stories from our program is Gloria, who is the daughter of our lead basket artisan, Dorothy. Because of the stable income Dorothy received from her work making baskets with The Mighty River Project, she was able to send Gloria to school for her dream job -- nursing. We are seeing the ripple effects of a stronger family, and now Gloria is a mama and is able to provide stable income for her daughter whose name is Blessing. As these families are strengthened, changes are happening across future generations of Ugandans.
We got married in 2005, right after we graduated from UNC, and went straight to Uganda to serve in an orphanage for 6 months; we've loved the country of Uganda and its people for our entire marriage!
Focusing on loving God and loving others; surrender to His plan even when we don't understand it; preaching the gospel to ourselves moment by moment (as Tim Keller says, "The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.")
We'd be so grateful for prayer for…
Please join us in praying for Erin & Scott, their family, and for the Mighty River Project. We are humbled by the opportunity to partner with them.
