virtual support letter

4 days
2 shifts at work
and a whole lotta loose ends to tie up.

i leave for my first "solo" trip overseas in 4 days.
i'll be visiting one of my best friends
in a place she's lived for almost a year.
i have the privilege of working along side her for 2 weeks.

this is the first time overseas that i haven't sent out support letters
or spread as wide a net to tel people about what's going on.

so, to my blog readers, 
(all three of you)
i ask you to join with me on this journey to southeast asia.
not only to join me as i share updates and funny stories,
but to join me in prayer.

ways you can pray:
  • pray that i would get things finished up before i go (including a couple of nights at work)
  • pray that God would continue to prepare my heart and mind to serve unconditionally and in ways i cannot expect
  • pray that God would continue to prepare those i will serve along side, that He would give them endurance and joy
(and ultimately)
  • pray that hearts of the many lost that we encounter will be chipped away, and ultimately broken over the Gospel!

thank you ahead of time for your sacrificial prayer!

"But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things?"
2 Corinthians 2:14-16

Glad you will be able to update during your trip and that you are able to go help and refresh the other workers.

Very cool! Glad you shared. I am confident that you will bless your friend and those she ministers to AND that God will work mightily in your own life. Go in Grace.
