Just One More

We have just one more day at home before we leave tomorrow afternoon for Sierra Leone.  We are SO very excited to be going!  I can't wait to see the kids again, and to see Doug's reaction to all the Lord has to show him through this trip.

However, we could really use your prayers.  Here's a list of a few specific things you can be praying for over the next 10 days or so.
  1. Safe travels.  It is harder to leave the boys this time, because Doug & I are both going.  Please pray that we arrive and return safe and sound.  
  2. Peace of mind.  The kids are starting to get nervous and worried.  Pray that God would bless them with peace and a give them a measure of happiness while we are away.  I've had a lot of discussion with Carter about how God will take care of him even when I am not here, so please pray that God shows him in a way that would be clear and comforting to him. 
  3. Clear "way" & open hearts.  Please pray that we would have clear opportunities to minister and share the Gospel while we are there, and that those individuals would have an open mind and heart toward us.  Specifically, we will be spending some time at the Children's Hospital praying with families and giving gift bags.  They will have some bread & peanut butter, along with the REAL "bread of life", a new Bible.   
  4. Wisdom & guidance.  Please pray for Doug and I.  We feel very strongly that the Lord is leading us further in our walk with Him and into something new for our lives.  Through this trip, we are expecting to see some revelation about what that is.  Pray that we would be open and willing to do WHATEVER He calls us to.

Thanks SO much for joining me on this journey!!  Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated much more than you'll ever know.  I'm expecting to be able to post fairly frequently about what we're doing.  Lots of pictures to come...so stay tuned!
