We're going to Africa

The words of one of our most beloved worship songs echo through our minds constantly these days.

"I'll go. I'll show
The power of your love
The world. Will know
The power of your love"

And that's what we are jumping out of our seats to do. After years and years of recognizing the desire and impression on our hearts designated towards outreach and missions, we have our first opportunity to "go". And we are going to Mozambique, Africa. How awesome is that?!

We are beyond words to be given this amazing opportunity to share God's love. Where we feel unequipped, we know that He will equip us. Where we feel unskilled, we know at he will provide the tools. Where we feel a language barrier, we know the Spirit will work through our actions. We know and trust that HE is in this all. And He will provide all that is needed.

We are asking for prayers. Lots and lots of prayers. Please pray specifically that God will be working in our hearts, preparing our hearts and minds for what's to come. Pray for our health, leading up to the trip and during the trip (we have received our immunizations, but are still at risk for malaria and other sicknesses). Pray for our children, as we will be away from them for over a week. And please pray for our financial efforts as we raise money.

We are so excited to share this journey with you and can't wait to see the way that God will use us to show His love.
