The excitement around here is about missions. Janell just left on a 2-week mission to Zambia in Southern Africa. We had a huge and spirit-filled send off Sunday May 25th. We are so proud of her. We sent her off with hugs, prayers, well-wishes and super-serious promises to keep her in prayer.
To help us keep our prayer promises Janell gave each of us a short piece of ribbon as a prayer reminder. She asked us to tie it or tape it someplace where we see it often every day.
Several of us also formed prayer teams. Each team of 2, 3, or 4 will meet once or twice during her trip for 30 minutes of prayer. We are praying for Janell.
Plus, while thinking about Janell, we are trying very hard to focus on God’s great purpose which is to reach the whole world (Mark 16:15). It’s hard to think that big and realize that we and Janell are just one tiny little but very significant part of God's global plan. God is making a difference, and we are blessed to be a part of it. How awesome is that!
