It’s been a while since I’ve posted so for those of you that follow I offer my apologies. The last few weeks have seen enormous change for my family and I and I wanted to take a quick minute to share some of the highlights with you.
Hunger Education And Resource Training
For those who are unaware, HEART is a missionary training school on the back of the campus of Warner University. Students live in a simulated third world village without electricity or running water and are temporarily cut off from the outside world. My wife and I were blessed to go through the program in the fall of 2006 and absolutely loved it. A few weeks back Abby asked me what I thought about applying for an internship at the village and after a few emails and an unexpected trip we were accepted. We move back to the village in April.
Africa Inland Mission
Last week Abby and I went to Peachtree City, Georgia to attend Candidate Week with Africa Inland Mission. It was a great time for us as a couple as well as individuals with opportunities to learn more about the mission field we have been waiting to get to for nearly 10 years. We have been appointed by the mission and are waiting to hear back whether or not we’ve been accepted to the team we’ve requested to join.
In all of this I lift up a few prayer requests if you remember as you go about your day.
1. Please pray for our kids. They (especially our oldest) are having a difficult time with the transition away from their friends and the home they’ve grown up in.
2. Please pray that we will manage our time well. We have A LOT to do before the move and not a lot of time.
3. Please pray for me to stay in touch with family and friends better. This has always been an area of struggle for me and I need to get better.
4. Please pray for me as I continue researching some prophetic things that have come to my attention in recent months. There is a lot of information and I want to be sure to test these things while still being open to what the Holy Spirit is trying to show me. So I guess in a word: discernment.
Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement thus far and please, let me know how I can pray for you!
