June 7th

American Airlines has redeemed it self today, last year when my bro in law and I went to check me in the ticket clerk was an ass big time the dude started talking to me as if I was 5 and then yelled at me and snarled a few times. It sucked plus he made me pay $200 for an extr bag. When I said what I thought the price was he lol an said that's impossible. And proceeded to charge an insane amount.

This time however the person who did my bags said there both free. Free? I said in shock. Yes she replied and they will arrive in Uganda where you will pick them up. So don't worry about them.
Still in shock I showed her the paper I had that said my second bag was $60. She then said nope it's free and your good to go!

I then went to the counter where I had some questions to ask the ticket clerk. Ah sweet redemption again this guy was nice and helpful answered all my questions with a smile and provided the information I needed. Have a good day he said as I turned to walk away.
Before turning I said thank you! And explained a little of last years expirence. He then said well you should of came to me cause that's just not right.

Ah sweet security line. No problem Mon.
A little wait but 20mins later in and out and on to my gate.

Left DFW at 8:40 pm and landed In Dulles international airport.
I think I'm in Virginia or maybe it's west Virginia. I would like to come back here some day and go site seeing  it this is not one of those trips.

Now to find a place to sleep and continue to wait for the next flight!

Thank You Jesus for this day. Amen

good to go

 Thanks for the Help

about a week ago in the midst of worry I thought it might be a good idea to make a plan B,so after connecting with a few people I decided that this trip was going to be a lot different.while still hoping that Plan A would come through Plan B looked more hectic solo then I thought. with the help of a Friend and some advice from a few Pastor's who all said to go for it and that it would be an adventure I decided sure why not. I mean i am holding my tickets to Africa in hand and everything else seem to line up with it.

well this week The LORD provided 956.40 through a few strangers,and many friends.I am very thankful to be a part of the team and look forward to seeing them when they arrive in Jinja, Uganda.

My Amazing friends Newman and Avery had prepared me  survival pack and have given it to me a day before everything came together..
. If the van happens to break leaving us stranded in the middle of nowhere.I'll be prepared to fend off Lions,hyena's and anything else trying to eat us.a snake bit kit to keep ya alive a few more hours,plus other great items.
what? Unclean water you say...No Problems  will just take this and UV nuke all the crap out and wahlah pure drinking water!

So i leave my home to head for the airport in a few hours, hope on a plane and sit in Dulles Airport  until 6pm tomorrow.then hop on over to London arrive at 6am and wait there until 6-9pm for the last flight and arrive in Uganda early Sunday morning...A lot of people watching,reading,thinking,writing,and hopefully sleeping is about to take place.

Thank you for everyone who has supported a piece of this trip.
I honestly cant tell you what is about to happen. but I can say that its going to be an Adventure with Papa and me.

Yolo!!! yea thats right You Only Live Once!

So they days ahead will come fast and be busy...very busy, still have to right about past trips,Battle reports of what God's done in the live of people down in Guatemala and over in Acuna,Mexico.those are coming soon.

as for an Update to Africa. here it is

originally it was just a 2week trip again with Believers World outreach aka BWO. Then some friends of mine said hey Kai would you want to stay an extra week? Sure i thought..this is so cool 2weeks is now 3 the weeks went by a friend of mine called an said "Kainoa My wife Jess and i really want to help you get to Uganda and Guatemala but we have no money". No worries i said.God will provide.
Yes! yes he did. so my friend say i have an American Airlines Credit card and we were going to use it for a vacation for us. but since Zoe arrived(their new born Girl) the 3 of us are not going anywhere soon. So i have enough to Uganda and maybe enough for Guatemala...needless to say he got both in so I went to GUA already and now headed to Uganda. Good is good!

but it gets better the only trip that was available was leave DFW June 7th and come home July 10....yea can we say 1 month trip!
so the new plan was to be spend a week in Jinja and wait for the BWO team to come in.then join them and saty a week after they left. by getting my own ticket this shaved off roughly 1000. from the trip. still needed 1650. in by which i raised $750. today June 1st was the deadline to get $956.40 in well i can say thats not happening... yes im still going to Africa but I wont be meeting up with the team.

BWO will not give me back the funds i sent in from people you supported my trip.instead they keep it and say they can put it twords another trip good for up to 1 year...well this doesnt really help me.
I've got a plane ticket(RT) a bag of shoes,and some dried food.up intill 2 hours ago i didnt have a place to stay for 2 weeks. but now the new plan is
1st week in Jinja working at an orphange,then hopefully visiting another orphanages with special needs kids. then i dont yet know how but making my way on the 17th or 18th to Masaka,Uganda to stay at an orphanage my friend Nana helped build last year. for 2 weeks then possibly moving to another place in the same area.

so now with a 6days to go i am still raising funds but no longer for BWO but for the needs in country..this trip is definitely not like last years.instead its more focused on 2 or 3 areas. more time spent with the same people.I like it. i know that all these "plans" can change but ultimatly I know who is in control and see what I can not see. Therefore I will not be afraid.

My sister just called and said Sooo this is no longer a missions trip then?
ah yea it is.cause Im not going on vacation here.I'll be working for the LORD,where the Holy Spirit leads, praying for those who need it. playing with hundreds of kids,hopeing to see people get saved,healed,set free and liveing in the love of Jesus Christ.
in fact every believer is on the mission field everyday of your life. it may not look like what you would think a mission trip should look like. or you may not be going to a foreign country like Africa, Guatemala, or Russia. but your mission is right here in front of you. even when I am here i focus on the things around me here to expand the Kingdom for His Glory and expand the family.

James 4;14 says you do not know what will happen tomorrow,your life is but a vapor here for a little while then it vanishes away.
this is true so every chance you get love on someone through a smile not just words.

a guy once said "Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary use words."

out giving my life away
