Be in Prayer

Yet again, I am leaving -- but this time, I'm leaving the country. Please be in prayer for my missions team as we serve in Reynosa, Mexico. Here are a few issues you can be in prayer about...
  • God would be glorified in every part of the trip
  • God would use us to the fullest extent possible
  • God would use this trip to further conform us to Christ's likeness
  • God would prepare us with boldness to share the gospel
  • God would give us eyes to see opportunities to share the gospel and encourage fellow believers
  • God would use this trip as a seed for future missionaries from this group
  • The orphans and staff of Casa Hogar will feel loved by us
  • The team will unify in service and in love
  • Our hearts would be prepared in selflessness, humility, and righteousness before we depart
  • Our service will be effective
  • We would have safe travel

And a few of my own to add...
  • God would bring my years of Spanish to my memory so that I can effectively communicate/translate (I think I'm the only Spanish-speaking team member this year)
  • God would spare me from any of my "freak accidents"
  • That I would fully recover from this cold I have
  • I prayed for a really challenging week -- please pray that the Lord would use this as a time of growth for me and that I would come out stronger and more beautiful in the Lord
We're leaving at 5:30 AM tomorrow morning and returning sometime in the evening on June 30th.

Carey, sweets, you know you're always in my prayers, but I will pray especially for this trip. May the Lord's mighty right hand be with you!
