Cold Water

"Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country."  -Proverbs 25:25 (ESV)

Here we are.  The team that God has assembled for the upcoming mission trip to Swaziland, Africa this June/July.  An awesome group of 26 people who have a heart for others and a spirit that resounds with hope.  It is a privilege to serve along side them.

These past 6 months we've been busy as a group preparing and planning through various team and informational sessions.  Yes those sessions are important, but equally important is how God is preparing our hearts, collectively and individually, for the opportunity to serve the Swazi people.  One of our group is in Swaziland now working tirelessly with our contacts on the ground, preparing the way for the team and the work we will do.  So thankful.

When we finally get to board the plane in June and travel some 8,700 miles (a long way!)  to Swaziland, our prayer is that God will have us ready.  Ready for a life changing experience.  Ready to love on, work along side and build relationships with the Swazi people.  Ready to make a difference. 

Thirsty.  Yes our souls are thirsty for what God is going to do. We can hardly wait!  Please join us in prayer...that the good news of our coming will be like cold water to the thirsty Swazi souls who will welcome us.  Until next time - grace and peace.
