For the next three weeks, Family Life Services will be missing one of our caseworkers. Please join us as we pray for Rachel Curley and the group that she will be traveling with over the next few weeks. We are praying for safety and that the Holy Spirit reveals Himself in magnificent ways!
What I don’t love, is the statistic that less than 1% of the 67 million people that live in this country know Jesus. There are so many who are missing out on the most meaningful relationship in the world. And so, in less than a week’s time my husband and I will board a plane along with a dozen high school and college students and we will spend the next two weeks teaching English to Thai students, building relationships, volunteering at a local orphanage, and hoping to spread, everywhere we go, the fragrance of Christ (2 Corinthians 2:14).
This is a short term mission’s project. Can lives be changed in a few short weeks? Our prayer is that they can. We know that some of the biggest changes will take place in us, we will learn to love people more, to think about other people more, and hopefully the students on our trip, some of them leaving the U.S. for the very first time, will see that the world is a much bigger place than they may have thought. They will see that not everyone lives like they do, eats what they do (I can hardly wait to see who try fried cockroaches!), or worships Who they do. Check back in a few weeks to hear how it all went and maybe even see a picture or two!
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. 2 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV)
