Just attended the first team meeting via skype. I'm excited. By faith, my wife and I submitted the first deposit recently. There is still a substantial need in a fairly short amount of time however, so I would like ask for partners. If you have a heart for the lost, or for missions, or for the poor, weak, or downcast, please pray for this team. The word of God says these three remain: faith, hope, and love, but the greatest of these is love. When you pray, pray from your heart that the team will go in love, and they will share faith, and that they will bring hope! Hope may not seem that powerful, but when you are spending time with people in the third world, it means a lot.
When I was in Haiti, the people said thank you. Thank you for leaving the comforts of your own home, thank you for taking time away from work, thank you for spending your money, thank you for coming half way around the world to serve and show love to us. They said one thing that stood out to me..."it brings us hope"...hope to think that someone from America would care about them.
When my mom passed from suicide many years ago, I declared that I would use my life to save as many people as I could, leading them to Jesus, impacting them for God. By God's grace, I've seen many come to the Lord since, but there's still a long road ahead, and a lot of lives destined to be healed and changed. The enemy [of our souls] comes to lie, kill, and destroy. But JESUS, came to bring life, and life abundantly. I've been forgiven from so much, I cannot help but to love and desire to help others to know the one true God. Not a God of religion, or control, but a God of love, joy, compassion, and forgiveness.
So, honestly speaking, I have prayed, and I feel peace to share that I have a need. To do God's work, and to go through the doors which have opened, I'm believing God for the remaining $1,650 + Airfare for this trip. What I would like to ask for is prayer from those who believe God, one, for our team, and two, for the remaining needs. Would you please pray that God would move. Many parts of of my life, I live by faith...believing God for whatever is needed. I will continue to do so.
Thank you family and friends for your support, which encourages our hearts. We love and appreciate who you are.
