PostSubject: Prayers for my wife   Tue Jan 12, 2016 12:35 pm

Hey gang. I know I'm on sabbatical from around here but I wanted to ask for some prayers.

My wife leaves Saturday for her third mission trip to Guatemala. She was unable to go last year due to an injury and surgery but she's back at it this year.

The team she's going with leaves Saturday the 16th at 6:00 AM CST - I have to have her at the airport by 4:00. They will arrive in Miami around 10, then Guatemala City around 2:30 PM. They leave to go to the village the next morning at 6 AM and arrive around 10 AM. The village is called Joyabaj (Hoy-a-vah). The team begins the return trip on Saturday the 23rd, and basically the return is the opposite except instead of Miami, they're coming back via Dallas-Fort Worth. The plane lands here in St Louis Sunday the 24th at 6:00 PM.

The area they are going to has extreme poverty and in that culture, widows are left to fend for themselves. The team builds homes for them (a total of 16 in 12 years) and this year, they are putting final touches on a piece of land (about 5 acres) that will have about 20 more homes, a caretaker's home, and self-sustaining things like a garden, fruit trees, etc.

Pray that the team is safe, healthy and effective during the trip. Pray that Jesus would be the only thing and person glorified. Pray that lives are changed. And please pray for me, our son and my parents. I'll be like a single parent those 9 days and my parents are helping with my son a lot, and it's tough on them.

Thanks so much.

Will being praying that your wife and her team will be safe and that God will use them to reach and save the lost.

Also praying for you, your son, and your parents to pull through unscathed in her absence. Smile

Thanks a lot guys. I know I'm not around here regularly but I appreciate your prayers.

So she left Saturday and I quickly realized I spent a lot of time praying for her and our son and not enough praying for me to be ready. It's shocking how quickly you realize that you and your spouse really are one flesh when they're in a different country.

So, continued prayers would be appreciated. I may be back on CHM at some point but it won't be this week!

Thanks...

Just wanted to post a quick update. My wife's trip went well. She got home Sunday - plane landed at 6:10 PM our time and she was in bed by about 8:30...

And my son and I survived the week too!

Thanks so much for your prayers and support.
