The tickets have been purchased.
The passports have come in.
The housing has been secured.
It's getting very real.
In one month my rock and my right arm will be boarding a plane, for the first time ever I might add, and traveling almost 1600 miles away from me, away from our family, away from our home, away from everything they know, to reach out to people they have never met. They will be walking away from the comforts of home and the security of their family and walking straight into the place where God has called them to be at that time. To help build homes and churches. To help serve those who are in need. To teach those who are without teachers. To be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Am I nervous?
Yes, I am.
Am I scared?
A little bit.
Do I trust God has this in His capable hand?
No matter where we are, if we are where God wants us to be, then there is no better place for us to be.
So, if you wouldn't mind to keep my people in your prayers, I would very much appreciate it. Pray for safety and good health for them. Pray for them to be able to do what God needs them to do in Nicaragua. Pray for me to not fret, but to hold down the fort while they are away. And pray for the people they are going to encounter. I pray they will see the love of Christ through them and will come to know Him as their Savior.
If you wish to help with the financial aspect of the trip, there are a few details that could be helped with, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so thankful to those who have blessed us already with their prayers and their gifts.
What an exciting time. May God be glorified.
