very specific prayer requests

so, we leave in a little over a week, which means i am FREAKING OUT!!!  we finally have plane tickets and an itinerary, but pretty much every detail i’ve told you has changed and will likely change again. 

Pokhara Valley

Pokhara Valley

main points:  on friday, july 18 we will get on a plane that will take us to london, and then another one will take us to india.  a day or two after that, a plane will take us to nepal, but to pokhara, not nepalgunj.  10 days later, a plane will take us back to delhi.  on august 2, a plane will take us to london, where we will spend the night.  on august 3, some will go london-raleigh-dallas, and my group will go london-chicago-dallas.

prayer prayer prayer!

  • i came home last night to find the AC in my apartment not working.  while not the end of the world, i think you will agree this is rather inconvenient in texas in july while trying to pack and move.  please pray that it is fixed quickly and effectively – PRAISE THE LORD!  the maintenance guy came and fixed it this afternoon
  • i have to move out before we leave.  this creates a time crunch, which is something i’m not a very big fan of.  please pray for diligence in packing, peace about the process, and praise God for my wonderfully giving teammates who have offered to help.
  • protection from spiritual attack – we are all feeling this in different ways.  pray that our hearts and minds would be protected and that our eyes would be fixed on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith (Heb. 12:2).
  • VBS – 10 days + 12(ish) adults + 200(ish) kids + a campsite somewhere in nepal = lots of unknowns.  i’m part of the planning team for this; so far we have lessons planned and assigned to different people, which is about all we can do at this point.  pray for me – i will be teaching the first day’s lesson, which has a pretty huge main point – God made the world, God made you and me, and we are special.
  • language barrier – we have no idea how many translators we will have.  that makes doing VBS very interesting…

one final thing: support. we still have team members under 60%, which means there is a possibility they would not be able to go.  most of you reading this have already given; i thank you so, so much.  i boldly ask that you would prayerfully consider, if at all possible, giving more.  i hate talking about money and i hate asking for money, especially when many have been overwhelmingly generous, but the truth of the situation is that we need it.  if you are unable, thank you so much for reading and praying and being faithful to the Lord’s work as you are able.  your prayers are cherished more than your dollars.
