Ready–Set–Go!

As we make the last trips to Wal-Mart and The Dollar Tree, the anticipation way beyond building–I check again the contents and weight of my suitcase.
If you were here for the Common Grounds prayer meeting this month, you know why.  If you were not able to come, then I suppose you will have to wait for the story and devotion to make it to the blog.
This is the first time that we have taken a mission trip together.  Jeff has been on MANY trips.  I have been on one.  But that “one” trip made an impact on me that will stay with me for a lifetime.  And I know I will never be the same
Have you ever experienced something of such magnitude that you were “forever” changed?
Watching a little Honduran boy dig through our left over meal to find something to share with his friends is a heartbreaking–life changing sight.  The tears sting even today as the scenes from that trip play like a movie in my mind.
I am thankful for this opportunity–with another one on the horizon for early next year for me and my friend, Rene P.  I am grateful for the love and support of friends who pray for us–and love us and have helped me walk through this new area of life.  Your encouragement means the world to me! 
I am grateful for our “house and dog” sitter.  Thank you “friend”–Scooter is blessed to have you here!  You have made it easy to step out with God in this new journey!  I can’t wait to share what God shows and shares with me.
I will be posting from the blog the entire trip.  Complete with interviews from our first time missionaries!  To get these easily into your inbox, simply enter your e-mail address in the box on the right and they will come straight to you.  Or you may just pop over here daily and catch up!  We will share pictures and news.  Maybe even a “video blog” (vlog) as well–if I can get that to work 🙂 
Once the trip is over, you can just as easily opt out of receiving the “blog” to your inbox.  I don’t know who subscribes and who doesn’t–so no worries.  I do hope though, that you would want to continue to receive the updates and devotions! 😉
We thank you in advance for praying–for traveling safety, the health of the team, and for us to be able to minister to those we come in contact with.  We have a team of 19 going and we are incredibly excited as Jeff leads his first mission trip.  He has put in so much work on this side of the trip and I am so proud of what God has been doing in his heart and life for the past few years.  Even more so the past few months!
To hear MORE about what God is doing in Jeff’s heart and life–then you should join us for our C-4 class (Chosen~Called~Committed~Children of God–ages 18-30). 
We have enjoyed teaching our awesome group of YA’s and hope they have enjoyed us as well!

Well, more packing to do–
