I wish you could see the smile on this girl's face. Today we head to the mountains! I'll spend some time with my parents before saying goodbye (for an entire year) on Monday, when our Stint briefing begins in Copper Mountain, Colorado. We'll be coming together for training and commissioning with everyone who is spending the next year overseas with Crusade. It will be the first time that Bryon and I meet our American teammates, Amber and Sam. I can't wait!
Please pray for us in this week (August 14-20). Pray that as we as a team we come together: united in heart and vision for what God has called us to this year in Venezuela. Pray that we will be learners during this week of training. Pray that this week will set the tone for the rest of our year-that as a team we love the Lord well and love each other well. Also, there are some of us on the team that continue to have significant financial need. We continue to step out in faith, trusting that the Lord will provide the means for us to do the work that He has called us into.
