In less than 12 hours, I will be on my way to the airport…Guatemala bound! This trip will only be for a week. The details of this trip are to primarily help out Vida Nueva’s Bilingual VBS in the mornings and in the evenings there will be a soccer camp. In addition, to serving with the church, I will be looking for a place to live and a school for Jake. But even beyond that, this trip is for clarity.
I am a planner at heart, so last night, I had a hard time sleeping. In my anxiety, I kept repeating “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:5-7 I know I have nothing to worry about “because He who is me is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4), but I am finding myself repeating that verse over and over again.
I know His plan for me and Jake has already been written and I pray (and ask you to pray along with me) that He will reveal more of the details during this coming week. I have no doubt the plan is for us to live in Guatemala and I, believe, we are to move in February, but my prayer is for the Lord to confirms that timeframe.
Jake will not be with me so I also ask you pray for him. We have been apart on other occasions, but it is never really easy. Please pray for my friend, Wendy, as he will be staying with her while I am gone. Also, keep all of the other folks who have graciously volunteered to help out with Jake this week. Thank you!!!
Lastly, I ask you to pray for the people and the country of Guatemala. Pray for those who we encounter to accept, believe and confess Christ as their Savior.
It is going to be a great and exciting week! Thank you all for your prayers, encouragement and support!
P.S. I will do my best to post everyday.
