Our lives are not our own.

Follow our family's journey as we give up the "American Dream" to live and love in Uganda.

Livin' The good Life By: Laney Howard

I'm Laney. I am ten AND A HALF. I live in Las Vegas, NV. For me right now life is just easy,  I'm livin' the life, I have a bed, a school, and a pretty decent amount of food. To me that is pretty sweet. But boy is it about to change.

I love my life and God the most but what he is telling my family to do is kind of crazy. I mean how many of you would just wake up one day and be willing to go to Uganda, Africa and live with the poverty and hungry. I have always been willing but the thought of a 20 hour plane ride with 9 of the people who I love but are EXTREMELY irritating sometimes is just going to be, how can I put this...LONG. And live in a foreign country where disease and poverty are at the extreme. and I'm not saying that I am a clean freak but hey its going to be dirty. And (tear) there are no chips or hot sauce. I looooove me some hot sauce on everything.

I've always wanted to be a missionary but Africa?? I mean Mexico (okay), another state in the us (fine) but I never thought that I would be going to Africa. its just a big step. I am so excited. I mean I'm just talking about the bad stuff. there are plenty of good things to. Like:  I like planes rides, I get to explore a different country, visit Washington D.C. and a lot more.

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Matthew 28:19

That is some powerful stuff. I guess I'm going to be living on that  verse.
