India STM 2017 - Before the Journey
It's T-Minus 4 days until my team heads off to India. Although it's my fourth year going, I can't help but be nervous and yet, curious on the wonders that will be displayed through our Lord. I try to always remind myself that as important as it is to prepare spiritually and physically before the mission, I should never forget the will of God and how it will most definitely exceed my preparations and expectations.
Even so, there is a lot that goes into serving the nation of India. For the past couple of months, our team has created and practiced new skits, memorized Indian worship songs, fasted and most importantly, prayed together as a whole for God's people. Yesterday was our last training, but we ask that you continuously pray for us before and during the mission.
We will be leaving July 24 from LAX to the Incheon Airport in South Korea. From there we will take another plane to New Delhi and split off into our smaller teams. Some of our team members have left to South Korea earlier this month. Although they were not able to train with us until the end, we know that God is guiding them even in their own respective environments.
During this time we ask you to pray for:
1) Physical and spiritual safety before, during and after the mission.
2) The people that we will meet in India
3) Humbleness and assurance in the Lord
The next time you'll hear from me is after my team leaves to India. We thank you for all the support and we send prayers back to all of you as you send prayers to us!
For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. (1 Corinthians 9:19)
