birthday travels

Monday, September 26, 2011

Tomorrow begins a grand adventure in Hispaniola.

Our wake up call is coming early, but it will be so worth it.

Our flight leaves tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. for the Dominican Republic and Haiti. We are very pumped. Our trip is 1 week, but we know that it will be a challenging, yet fun one. Mitch and I are almost done packing and then we're off to bed. Early to rise for us two.

Please be in prayer for:
-Safe travels to and fro the States and crossing the borders of DR and Haiti
-the Spirit to move in and through us
-the children and adults we will come in contact with
- God's will to be done

We look forward to coming home and sharing all that we experienced and all that God did.

Tomorrow is also my birthday. I will be 23! I couldn't be more excited to spend my birthday headed to serve. What a blessing. Thank you for your prayers :)

Sweet memories and one's to come

 Answered prayer: I got a job!

God's timing is just right. I am so thankful to be working. Mitch is doing some work as well, helping out with the Mobilizing Students website. He's a guru with that kind of stuff.

 God is good and faithful.

 Last week we took a visit to the World Relief Center and they took us through an orientation. Mitch and I have decided to adopt a family from Cuba!

While we were there, they showed us a small clip from the documentary "God Grew Tired of Us." It follows the lives of several boys who were considered "The Lost Boys." They fled their own country of Sudan due to war and traveled through the dessert into Kenya. It shows what life was like in the refugee camps and how they adjusted once they moved to the United States. I encourage you to watch it.

As for our studies, we are continuing through the book of Romans verse by verse each morning. We are also being equipped to share the Gospel with boldness!

Some things we have been praying for lately have been the persecuted church/restricted nations. Our prayer request for you would be to join with us as we pray for our brothers and sisters across the world who are tortured for the cause of Christ.

You can read about all the restricted and hostile nations at the Voice of the Martyrs website.

Praying for Afghanistan and Algeria 

The whole group!

Pray for us as we prepare for our first trip to the Dominican Republic and Haiti in 3 weeks!
