Hi gang! Welcome to the new blog and Welcome to the 356th edition of the Christian Carnival! This is the carnival before my big missionary adventure to Uganda! I am leaving this coming Monday, 1/31/2011. I’m so excited, you have no idea! I hope you’ll take the time to look around this blog and enjoy all the posts submitted this week. I would also ask you to pray for me while I’m away. And if you are so inclined to make a small donation to support this trip, please check the sidebar on the left for the links to PayPal and Pioneers. Thanks for your prayers and support! Without any further ado, I give you the carnival!
