June 28, 2010

Hello all,
We are only two days away from our flight to India, and already we are seeing the LORD's faithfulness in His provision for us as a team! As of last night, we were still in need of $2500 in order to fulfill our financial commitment for the trip. So today, we spent some time in prayer asking the LORD to provide, fully trusting that if he put this specific calling on our hearts for India that he would get us there...all in His will. After our time in prayer, we each made a commitment to call three people and see if any one would be willing to support us so that we could reach our final goal. Throughout the day, support began pouring in from all team members, even those who were already fully supported! We even had one donation of $1500! The LORD has truly been good to us, providing in His perfect timing and never ceasing to amaze us with His faithfulness!

We are so amazed by His love for us. Knowing our needs before we even ask and desiring to fulfill them. Yet His timing is so perfect, for in our waiting we become completely dependent on HIM. We are so thankful to serve such a good and loving God.


Also, we wanted to all send our love to Sam. We're so sad that you couldn't be here with us, and we are definitely thinking about you and praying for you! Be encouraged that the LORD doesn't need you in India to impact the Kingdom, and He's got great plans for you back home! We're so excited for you and for the plans that the LORD has for YOU over the summer! Please keep us updated on how you're doing and how the LORD is using you! We love you!

prayer for June 13-20

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the comedy show last night. All three of our comedians did a great job and made us all laugh! Jerry also challenged us to seek God for opportunities to share the gospel with those around us. It was challenging and encouraging since he reminded us that we have opportunities every day to share the gospel with those who need to know.
Please pray for two things this week:
1) Pray for all of our Visas to get approved and sent back to us soon. Pray especially for Peter as he needs to provide a birth certificate.
2) Pray for all of our team to finish strong in raising their full support so that our team is completely funded.

Thanks for your prayers! The team all arrive on June 27th here in Los Angeles and we leave for Hyderabad on June 30th. We will provide pics and daily updates once we arrive in India.

Urgent Prayer Request

We have submitted all of our Visas but have hit some snags with a few of them. Please pray for all of the Visas to get approved in a timely manner and that all of the barriers we are facing with a few of them would be worked out quickly--we need to provide the consulate with a few more documents for some on our team--so pray that we would be able to get all of the documents they require.
