Faith Encouraging Faith

What a powerful sendoff service tonight! One at a time each of the teams (Children's, Service, Medical, Mime) introduced themselves and shared a team verse and specific prayer requests. Then family and friends gathered around them to lift their prayers to God.

The Children's team led us in several lively children's songs, one in Spanish and one in English. The boys sure had some great energy!

The Mime team shared a powerful skit with us called "Forgiven." This team will be able to share the message of Jesus even though they might not speak the language.

We heard from Romans 1:11-12. "I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith." In the Phillips version it says, "...that each of us may be cheered by the other's faith." Pray that we might be an encouragement (due to our faith) to the people we meet, and that we too may be encouraged and cheered on by their faith.

Now off to bed for a few hours of sleep!

    Dearest Andy and Amy, I pray for health and safely for your teams, and the leaders. You have many beautiful people to reach through the medical team, and the work team. God bless you for your willingness to use your God given talents to reach the beautiful people of Guatemala. Take care of yourselves, and all the dear servants you have with you.
    Love Aunt Rene and Tyler
