Today I want to pray for the missionaries that we met yesterday. I want to pray for their ministries, pray that they get rested and the medical attention they need while they are here. Pray for funds to come quickly so they can return to their countries. Pray for the ones in transition as they are preparing to enter new territory. Pray that God would soften the hearts of the people group they are serving. Pray that God would use this time to grow their relationship with Him. Pray that they would have good fellowship with other missionaries.
Thank You,

  1. Yesterday was fabulous, although I am exhausted today. As the missionaries shared where they were headed and what all they had to accomplish during their home stay I was overwhelmed for two different reasons. First I was overwhelmed by the sacrifice these families have made, how long they have been gone and how their families have changed over the years they have been on the field. The next feeling I had was overwhelmed as I realized that as they shared the struggles they were having raising their finances that we are in the exact same spot they are. We aren't going to wake up one day and be 100% financially supported. It takes a lot of work. It takes a lot of prayer. It is taking a lot of humbling (is that a word). We know that we are where God wants us to be and that He will provide, but every now the reality of the size of the task hits and there is no other description other than overwhelmed.
