It is such a relief seeing lesson plans and travel schedules coming together as we are so close to takeoff. We are having our last meeting tomorrow and our flight is leaving at 1 pm on Thursday! I am super excited and a little anxious...but I know God has big things in store for us (:
A few prayer requests before we leave:
1. Health - A few of our teammates have been feeling a bit under the weather with sudden fevers, headaches, and stomach discomfort. Everyone else is in much need of God's strength and energy. Please pray that we all will be strong, healthy, and ready for the trip.
2. Alertness! - 1 Peter 5:8: "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a lion looking for someone to devour." Without a doubt, these next four days before we leave Satan will be creeping for opportunities to discourage us in many ways, if he has not began to do so already. Please pray that we will stay alert of that possibility and that we will continually seek God in prayer for protection over us.
3. Attitude Check - Ephesians 4:2-6: "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." Please pray Ephesians 4:2-6 and that each member will be reminded of the reason and purpose for going on this trip.
