Saturday August 6
Los Angeles, California
We have safely arrived in California and due to an airline conflict, we do not depart for Manila until the morning. We have taken a small detour to the Hacienda Hotel in El Segundo. I have no fear we will be on our way in the morning. I am certain God has made the adjustments on our behalf, I am confident he is going before us!
Our adventure has begun and we are coveting your prayers!
Pray also for [us], that whenever [we] speak, words may be given so that [we] will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel. AMEN!
We are in need of your prayers, don't get me wrong, we are all well. But we are in need of God's voice and his provision. We are desperate to hear from him on our 16+ hour plane ride tomorrow. We are in need of his rest, a deeper rest than sleep. We long for him to show us how to participate in genuine community, both with one another but also with our new Filipino friends. We are eager to see his kingdom expanding in our world and in our hearts. We need his strength to withstand the ways the enemy is discouraging us and coming against us.
Thanks for interceding on our behalf. Thanks for sending us out. We would be lost without our support at home.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters.
