Five weeks from today Seth and I will board a plane, actually three of them, and land in a place neither one of us even every considered going as we rung in the new year last year.
If you are moved to pray for us, I have a few specific requests...
Prayers for peace for our parents who think we're just a little bit crazy and are trying to not completely freak out about us heading into this particular mission field.
Prayers for sanity as we get everything gathered and packed into little tiny suitcases that weigh less than 50 pounds.
Prayers for Seth as he tries to plan for two substitutes and be ready to roll through the season of Lent as soon as our plane's wheels land us back home.
Prayers for our children who will be wonderfully cared for by their grandma and by our congregation, (but not by mom and dad) for eight whole days, plus a few hours.
Prayers for our team, for safety, for a peace-filled trip, for care of His people that is God pleasing and always to His glory.
Prayers for those whom we get to serve, for Pastor Bernard and his family, for the children and families we will meet, and for those with whom we'll get to share the love of Christ.
Thank you friends!
