Happy New Year from Uganda! As most of you know, our family has been living & serving here in Uganda for 1 month now.

(In case this is news to you please check out the beautifully written article from Sierra Lodestar’s Patricia Harrelson)

Since our big move across oceans and continents we have experienced The Lord’s hand in a virtually seamless transition.

We are excited to have started 2016 off with a blank canvas that we are adding color to by the minute. Each day brings it’s own set of adventures, headaches, heartbreaks, bountiful blessings, opportunities, and revelation. What a beautiful journey we are on! Global Belief Project’s mission and ministry continues to take shape and take root more efficiently and swiftly than we could have ever imagined. Since our 5 weeks of residing in Uganda we have been blessed with the opportunity to repair 3 wells and counting! Thousands have been restored with clean water and the truth of the gospel. Since our arrival we have been working hand in hand with government officials, comfortably with our Field Engineer, Field Representative and newly hired Chaplin. We are also looking to hire a nurse to accompany us to the villages to meet medical needs as we come across them. With the mantra of “Empowering not Enabling” we are putting emphasis on empowering the village water councils (which are established and in place in most communities), by encouraging the people to take ownership of their communal well. We are striving to implement “Borehole Banks” where the community inputs a small amount monthly, accumulating for future maintenance or repairs rather than retrieving water from contaminated sources while the nearby well lies dormant awaiting restoration. Thank you to all of the amazing supporters who continually lift Global Belief Project and our family up in prayer. We are embarking on the home school endeavor. This is not what we had initially planned but are loving every minute of our special family time and looking forward to the adventures ahead. We are grateful to have good health and happy kids. We are welcoming new friendships and treasuring the old. Our hearts are torn between two continents but are finding constant joy in rebuilding daily life. We have never been so in love with California or so driven and passionate about the work we are called to do here. We are grateful for the gift each day brings and learning to roll with the surprises they hold. Hug thank you to our donors for the continued financial support that provides for this ministry, keeping love and clean water flowing here in Uganda! We truly couldn’t do it without you!

    Happy Happy New Year Radovich’s ! Speaking of water, we are getting that here. Praise the Lord!! Last round of storms we had 5 inches of rain here and lots of snow in the mountains. Yesterday and today, I bet we have easily had another 3-4 inches. Currently dumping snow up the hill. We are so blessed, and a huge answer to prayer.
    We think of you every day and pray for you. It’s so exciting to hear of Your days there and what you are doing. Praising the Lord for clean water, and we thank you for your labors of love. Love you all. Adrian and Faye
