The Fradys, Mission Link Volunteers in 2011, Answer the Call to Uganda
It is very dangerous to be a MLI volunteer to East Africa. I am not referring to being bitten by a malaria carrying mosquito or attacked by a lion or robbed by unscrupulous Africans. What I am referring to is much more dangerous than all of the above. In past trips, we have had volunteers that have answered the call to be a missionary. The danger is that a volunteer may catch the missionary virus that causes one to abandon most of their earthly possessions and comforts of the USA and move to a foreign land. In 1996, I caught the missionary disease. Africa and Africans captured my heart and hence, Mission Link International was birthed.
Several years ago, Bryan and Wendy Frady caught the missionary fever and now reside in Kampala, Uganda with the International Mission Board of Southern Baptist.
Bryan & Wendy Frady state: Wendy and I first met Rick and the MLI family in the fall of 2010 when we were considering going on the annual MLI trip to Uganda. I had never considered an international mission trip, BUT Wendy said she felt the Holy Spirit pushing her to go. I eventually felt led to go and we went on the scheduled trip in February 2011. This trip was catalytic for us AND our lives have been forever changed! The trip was planned with an intentionality and Gospel focused. Wendy served on the medical team and I served on
the evangelism team. This trip reshaped our worldview and gave us a heart for missions, so much that our family is now serving full-time as missionaries in Uganda, Africa! Rick and the MLI team have decades of experience taking teams to Uganda and showing these teams the beautiful country and wonderful people of Uganda. Also, the various facets of MLI's ministry will find an outlet(s) for you to be able to use your God given talents to serve Him!
