As of 2022 I have taken multiple trips to Uganda. Each and every one was a unique and incredible experience. I love the people in Uganda, they are the friendliest people you will meet. My trips consisted of helping with several different projects, but most of time I was there to document the information through photography and video. I have a catalog of 50,000 images from those trips. Those are precious to me. If you want to see any of them you can start here with the Uganda Portfolio.
For Most Recent Information and recent posts on my current trip please visit my blog’s Uganda Section which has post by most recent date. The information below was setup for two mission trips to Uganda, which I took in 2011, which was highlighted in the post I’m Going to Uganda Africa and I Would Love Your Help. While I was in Uganda in 2011 I shot approximately 10,000 images, some of which I am still going over a year later. It was an incredible two trips.
Cornerstone Church in Auburn has built a relationship with Buloba Community Church in Buloba, Uganda for many years now. Our desire is to support the local church as they move to awaken people in their community to a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. Our focus on this trip will be leading members of Buloba Community Church in discipleship opportunities, providing a soccer day camp for the children in the community, working on a multi-purpose building that is used as their worship facility, and building relationships with the people of Buloba. I hope that you will pray with me as our team begins preparations for this trip and throughout our time in Uganda. Please pray for me to have strength, courage, and perspective, and also for our team to experience unity, strength, and direction.
I am currently scheduled on two trips for 2011, the first is on July 25th and the second is on October 1st. I’ll need to raise $3,250 per trip minimum to cover my own costs. This amount will pay for my transportation ($2,500), lodging, and meals ($500) while in Uganda, and vaccinations ($250 per trip, $500 total).

Photography in Uganda
Because my role on this trip mostly involves photography I have additional photographic expenses well above my stated $500 per trip and would appreciate any support you could provide for costs such as film, memory cards, development and processing, printing, and equipment costs directly related to and specifically for the Uganda trip.
