Learn To Do Right

Isaiah 1:17 "learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow."

It's time again. Planning has officially begun for our fourth mission trip back to Swaziland, Africa. Yesterday was our first 'team meeting'. All together there are 33 of us planning on going in July of 2011. 33...a good number. About half of us have been before and the other half are 'newbies'. Already I feel a bonding with this group. The make-up is diverse. Some young, some older. Some men, some women. Some family members, others single. But we all have this in common right from the 'get-go' as we shared 'Why we are going'. We want to make a difference. We want to be involved in something 'bigger than ourselves'. We want to do what this verse in Isaiah speaks of. So here we go. With the Lord's help and the support of many (both financially & prayerfully)....let the adventure begin.
