Recognizing Divine AppointmentsRich Stigall
What does a mom raising three children in KC have in common with a missionary who helps run a denomination with ten million people in Uganda? Both recognize divine appointments.
Two years ago, Ann Morrison’s daughter, Cara, came home from school and wanted to give all her money to orphans in Africa. Instead of dismissing Cara’s desires as elementary musings, Ann recognized it as a Divine Appointment and threw the weight of the family behind her daughter’s dreams. Six years ago, Alison Barfoot felt God’s call to Uganda, a country plagued by a host of problems half way around the world. Instead of ignoring the need, Alison recognized it as a Divine Appointment and gave her life to serve the Lord through the Church of Uganda.
Today, Ann, Cara, and the Morrison Crew came to our GO Project offices. Cara’s second annual Talent Show raised enough money this year to build a home for ten orphaned and abandoned children in Haiti. Alison Barfoot was also here. She serves as The Global Orphan Project’s local, trusted partner to care for orphaned and abandoned children in Uganda, with homes started in Lira and Kabale. A Mom and a Missionary: both recognize divine appointments. Both are servants of the King. Both care for His kids, and it’s a privilege to serve with both of them!
