For about a year now, Josh and I have been planning on taking our vision trip to the MIddle East sometime this summer. For those of you that do not know, my husband and I plan to move overseas sometime in the next couple of years to do full time mission work. A vision trip will be used to meet the leaders in the area, get a feel for the culture, and hopefully hear from God about how we should start preparing for our own mission.
So back to it, we had planned to do our trip this summer and we worked together with OM (Operation Mobilization) to find dates that would work well for everyone. After many dates had been discussed and found unavailable, we kind of gave up for this summer and decided to shoot for Spring break of next year.
Well this past week we were overwhelmed when we found out that there is one week in July that is suddenly available for us to visit. God has a great sense of humor and while we are very overwhelmed, we know that this must be God’s plan because we sincerely thought all hope of going this summer was lost.
So, we will be traveling to the Middle East leaving Atlanta on July 15th and returning on the 22nd. While we are there we are going to live and work alongside local workers currently in the field. We will learn how their lives work on a daily basis and help them in any way that is needed.
This is where all of you come in! We need your prayers. The next two months are going to be hectic since the amount of time to prepare is very short. We have things to get ready, planning to do, money to raise, tickets to buy, and prayers to offer up. We need your support in these things. Please remember us in your prayers during this time! If you are able to support financially, we have tried to make it as simple as possible. On the side of the blog there is a button marked “Give” that links you directly to paypal. All donations are tax deductible. If you are unable to help in the financial area, please help us with your prayers and emotional support during this time.
And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
