Months ago, these four people came together to form a team that would be coming to Guatemala to serve. I am excited to be able to share with them the area, the people and the ministry in which I have been working and for them to experience life in Guatemala. We will be focusing on the school while we are there, but will be part of the bigger picture of what is happening in Canilla, Guatemala. We will keep you updated on the week through our eyes. Come join us. We begin our trek Thursday, June 19th.
On June 1st both Go Teams (there is currently a team in Gabon as well) were commissioned by the church body to go on our trips. It is always a special time when the church gathers to pray for those being sent out.
In Acts, Paul and Barnabas were commissioned to go as well. Acts 13:3 says, “Then after fasting and praying they laid hands on them and sent them off.”
In his letter to the Colossians, Paul asks for more prayer during their trip. Colossians 4:2-4 says,
“Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ.”
We are asking you for prayer during our trip. We would ask that you would be devoted to it, and watchful and thankful in it. Please pray that the teachers and students are encouraged during our time there, that the language barriers are dissolved, and that the message of Christ is evident in all that we do.
Thank you for sending us and supporting us in so many ways!
