Dear Friends and Family,
The trip is so soon! The 27th is approaching and my team and I are getting really anxious! We’ve been having constant meetings and so much preparation. We’ve been raising money and praise God with your help we are 100% financially supported! God has provided and praise Him! I just want to thank you for your prayers and financial support, it really made a difference. We’ve done “Helping Hand for Haiti” and that had two benefits:
First it was a good time of fellowship with one another. Our team bonded and definitely practiced team work. Secondly, it brought in a lot of support and we had fun doing all the projects…from pulling weeds, (and me getting really annoyed with the spiders, who knew…the dirt has A LOT of unusual insects =)) to cleaning out garages to doing simple task such as hanging fans and hooking up printers. All was for the glory of God and it helped us a lot. So you, yes YOU, had a huge part in this, by supporting our team! Thank YOU so much!
With trip approaching, while I am anxious, I have the advantage of being distracted from thinking about it too much. I’ve got finals coming up and my mind hasn’t fully grasped the idea of me leaving the country. I am going to be done with school on the 25th and we leave two days after. So I’ll have the 26th to panic and then I’ll be off.
There are a few prayer request that I have (here are some personal ones and then I’ll write some for the whole team) Please pray that God will reveal to me His calling for me. I am pretty sure, 99% sure that the Lord is calling me to be a missionary. A few things I am not clear about, where? When? With whom? How do I get there? What? So many questions, but I don’t need to worry, God’s got it all under control. I want Him to speak to me loud and clear while in Haiti, I’ll be working with Kids (which is my passion and that will never change) but is God calling me to love on the children overseas? Or local? Hmmm. Please pray that while I am there my heart will stay on the Lord. Seeing all the poverty and destruction it is easy for one to isolate themselves and to turn their back on God. Pray that I will guard my heart against the enemy and that I will fight back with scripture and God’s truths.
Now prayers for the whole team: Please pray for unity. Pray that we will be there for one another and love each other as Christ loved us. Look out for one another, come along side and encourage.
Well I guess this is it! I’ll be sending out letters after we get back, inviting YOU to our sharing night, (date to be announced) I expect you guys to all be there!
God bless you and thank you for all of your financial support and prayers!
Continue praying! =)
