I will be able to count on you to be praying for me over these next few months. As I write to you today, I am still trying to grasp the reality that just five days from now I will be in Colombia! I have much to do before then, but that reality is a great encouragement to me! The purpose of this email update is to let you know about some things to be praying for as I make my final preparations over the next five days.
1. I recently received my vaccinations, but because I needed to receive one more vaccination than I had thought and the high cost of vaccinations in general, I have spent much more money on vaccinations than I intended. Please pray for wisdom as I refigure my expenses so that I can still use the remainder of the money I received to be a blessing to the missionaries and national pastors.
2. I’m still finishing my preparations for my sermons that I will be preaching in Colombia. Pray for me as I will be preaching numerous times in Spanish.
3. Pray for me as I finish the practical things like getting my things together and packing as well as for safe travel down to Colombia next Tuesday.
4. Pray for my health as I travel and get acclimated to the Colombian environment and climate.
5. Pray for grace as I transition into speaking much more Spanish than I have ever spoken.
6. Pray for the hearts of those that I will serve and those that will serve me. I want more than anything to be a blessing and serve the body of Christ in this part of the world that is new to me.
Thank you all for taking time to read this! I am so excited for what the Lord is going to do in my life over the next nine weeks. I’ll try to send out an update once I am in Colombia, and then I will send out an update every two weeks throughout my summer.
