DLM Newsletter May 2023

Monday, May 1, 2023

It rained all morning at the ministry home site. It also rained all the way driving there and back today. We praise God for the safe journey we had to the land and back today.


Update: The new structure being used as storage space and a bathroom for the guard is moving forward. You can see the roof is already in place.

The kitchen island is close to being complete.

We spent about an hour going through the house with the electrician and decided which lights we want connected to the many different switches. So fun getting to choose!

And don’t miss the water tank on the stand. Yay!

The metal outline is on the verandah and on the skirting of the house in preparation for the terrazzo work to be done. To move forward, we need a few days without rain.

I’m always in awe of God when going to the land and seeing not only how He is blessing the ministry with the construction of the ministry home but also of the beauty in His creation out in the village.

God is always blessing me and this ministry through so many of you! Glory to Him Alone!




Tuesday, May 2, 2023 I have traveled to Rome, Italy today to meet up with Mama and Ashley to celebrate Ashley’s birthday. They arrive tomorrow. We are so excited to have the opportunity to take this trip together! I will be back doing ministry work in a couple of weeks. Glory to God!

DLM Ministry Home Update

Today Brian, Mama and I visited the DLM Ministry Home.

So much has been accomplished since Mama's last visit on February 27th.


First take a look at the growth of the live fence.


The lights have been installed. Look closely for the outdoor security lights as well as the interior lights.

The first coat of interior painting is complete.

The kitchen island is complete and looks amazing. Paint color was chosen today, and painting will begin this week on kitchen cabinets, island and all bedroom wardrobes.


Toilets, sinks and faucets are all onsite and ready for installation by the end of the week.

The new structure for storage, guard room and bathroom is nearly complete.

The goats are doing a great job maintaining the grass. 😂

The exterior is primed and ready for paint. Verandahs are nearly finished; polishing of the terrazzo is the final step and should be finished this week.

I continue to be in awe of God’s abundant blessings to Delight in the Lord Ministries, Inc. This property is absolutely beautiful and so very fertile. We are so thankful for all of God’s blessings especially those individuals and churches who financially support the mission work being done here in Uganda, Africa.

Today, Brian, Mama, and I went to downtown Kampala to pick out some final finishes like toilet paper holders, towel rings, soap dishes, curtain rods, and curtains. Getting closer to the ministry house being complete! Glory to God for His blessings!!!

Today, Brian, Mama, and I left Kampala at 3:30 am so we could see the house in the dark and see the sunrise.

Today, Brian, Mama, and I left Kampala around 2:00 pm so we could see the house in the evening and see the sunset.

We took the first group of secondary kids back to boarding school today. Mama, Arnold, and I, left the house at 6:15 am with Sadati, our driver for today. We made three stops to pick up each of the 3 children and their parents. We checked the children in and then got their beds made again. Then we took some photos and prayed together before departing ways. We are always thankful for our sponsors who support these children to attend high school, and praise God for His blessings! Glory to God Alone!




Tuesday, May 23, 2023

We took the second group of secondary kids back to boarding school today. Sadati, our driver, and I left at 12:30 pm to pick up the 4 kids and a couple of parents. This school is only an hour away so this was a much quicker journey. We thank God for our blessings! Glory to God Alone!




Wednesday, May 24, 2023

Today, Brian brought a big moving truck to the rental house. The truck had already picked up all of the wooden doors for the new house. Most furniture items from the rental were loaded onto the truck, as well. The house is nearly empty now, besides the kitchen appliances! Thankful for Brian and that I’m one step closer to shifting to the DLM ministry home! Glory to God Alone!

Handles are being put on the cabinets.

The exterior of the house has one coat of paint.

Terrazo (porch surfaces) is finished.

The doors are laying in their proper place ready to be installed.

Today has been a crazy but wonderful day! Move In Day! Mama Fab came with me to help move things. We are very tired, and most things are still packed up. My German Shepherd, Shadow, did well with traveling. She's gonna love all this land to explore. Cats don't seem to travel well, so the 2 hour drive was tough on them. Within a day or two, America, Uganda, Tanzi and Zambi will settle into the new house. So so blessed to see God’s hand working to provide for the ministry home! It’s now complete. Wow!!! 8 months waiting, and it’s finally here. We are so grateful for Brian and his team of workers!!!! Praise God for him! Thank you all so much for the continued love, prayers, financial support. God has used you to be a blessing not only to DLM but to me personally. Much love to everyone! Will post more pics tomorrow during the daytime. Glory to God Alone!

Mama Fab and I sorted some things in the house today. We took out food items from boxes. Hung up some of the curtains. Moved things to the closet space. Started organizing my clothes. Arranged a few bathroom items. The animals are settling in well and love the space to be free. Brian is coming with another moving truck this evening with a couple of new appliances and the remainder of the items from the rental house. Thankful for him and Mama Fab! I stood in awe this morning at all the undeserved blessings God has shown me. It still feels unreal. I’m so very humbled how supportive you all are and how God has used you for His purposes. Y’all get ready to come on over for a visit! Glory to God Alone!!




Wednesday, May 31, 2023

Today, I vacuumed all the kitchen cabinets and drawers while Mama Fab washed all the dishes and utensils. This took most of the day. Before the sun went down, we took Shadow for a walk down the road that runs along the perimeter of our 17 acre property. She is loving it! Finally, for dinner we prepared spaghetti on the new stove. Glory to God!
