Hi there!

My name is Gemma. Well, it’s just over 2 months until I go to Kiwoko Hospital in Uganda with my fellow EKISA team mates; and I’m greatly excited! I can’t wait to discover new cultures, challenges and meet new people. Sharing this experience with 14 wonderful people will be an added bonus. Although I am excited, I have had other emotions during this process. I’ve felt uncertain, anxious, worried, shocked, amazed and also surreal.

Through the support of family, friends and within the church community at fundraising events (such as bring and buy sale, coffee morning, fire side quiz and a table quiz night), I am very pleased to say that nearly all my funds are raised. I have been so shocked yet grateful by the generosity of others. To me this is God’s work. It is God that has made it possible for me to go and I feel so blessed by this. I know that through prayer I will overcome any anxiety or negative feelings and be able to focus upon my positive feelings. Therefore, enjoy and absorb the experiences and thrive on the challenges. It’s such a buzz knowing that I will be able to share my life with others, they can do so in return; and we can spread the word of the Lord and praise His name!!!

At this moment in time I feel greatly thrilled and can’t wait to go to Kiwoko. I’m looking forward to learning more about others, God and myself. This experience will be such a fantastic opportunity to develop and deepen relationships and friendships which I am so excited about. I feel ready physically, financially, spiritually and emotionally. All I have left to do is get those dreaded vaccinations!!! LOL

God Bless

Gemma
