us where we could be used. One evening, I
received a message from a Ugandan man whom
I had met in Afghanistan. The message detailed
a series of islands situated in Southern Uganda.
I searched and found the islands situated on the
northern shores of Lake Victoria. This vast body
of water demands reverence for its Creator.
Northern Lake Victoria has 84 islands, known
as the Ssese Islands. Kristin and I were unable
to identify any missionaries laboring amongst
those people. This was an answer to our prayers.
The Lord gave us the desire of our hearts!
I contacted Keith Stensaas in Masaka, Uganda.
He is a second generation missionary who
has been in Uganda for more than 20 years.
With zeal, I explained the desire of our hearts
regarding Ssese. With reciprocated excitement,
he offered to assist us along the way. He has done
exactly that and more. We hold Keith and Sally

in high regard and look forward to laboring
with them. Starting under the guidance of an
experienced missionary is foundational for us.
With His own hand, He leadeth me.
I enjoy surveying my life, a man amongst
the chiefest of sinners, and identifying the
wonderful ways the Lord has led. Few men
could be more undeserving; yet, the Lord can
use such a one as I to labor in His fields. My
hope is that this brief sketch of His workings
in my life will encourage believers to trust
Him more along the way. It is good for us to
note these points in our lives, bringing them
to remembrance as a memorial unto the Lord.
May He receive the honor and glory due Him
in each of our lives.
I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done
it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good
before thy saints (Psalm 52:9). W
