Miss you dad!

Dad, our prayer for you is to stay healthy and safe. God has big plans for you. I know your faith will guide you. Lord, Jesus please give my dad your eyes so he can see the love and strength you see in us. Give him your strength so he can help build the walls and mend broken hearts. I know You Lord, Jesus have big plans for my dad, with his faith he will honor YOU! Dad you are our hero and we love you so much! Hurry home.
John 14:12
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the father.

Bathing you in the truth of God's promises

Praying for CCC goteam Mt 13:38..........Father, I pray for those out in the mission fields,specifically this group of people who love you and long to serve you in Haiti. I am thankful they are Mt 13:38 spreading the good news of the Gospel,
Mt 24:14 in this country and around the world.(Haiti)
1Jn 3:17 They have seen their brothers' needs
1Jn 3:17 and have not shut up their hearts from them,
3Jn 1:7 but have faithfully gone forth into all the earth.
2Tim 1:9 Let them be called with a holy calling,
2Tim 1:9 not according to their works,
2Tim 1:9 but according to Your own purpose, Father.
1Jn 3:16 Out of love they have laid down their lives
Jas 1:25 and determined to be doers of the work, not hearers only. They are willing to 2Tim 2:10 endure all things for the sake of those chosen for salvation.
Father send with them your angels, your mighty warriors to guard and protect each of them. Heb 6:10 Do not forget their work and labor of love.
2Tim 4:17 Stand with them and strengthen them.
2Tim 4:18 Deliver them from every evil work and preserve them.

Phil 1:12 turn out for the furtherance of the Gospel.
Ps 104:4 Make Your ministers a flame of fire,
Phil 2:16 Help them to hold fast to the Word of life
Eph 5:10 proving what is acceptable to the Lord,
Eph 5:11 exposing the unfruitful works of darkness,
Phil 2:15 and shining as bright lights in a dark world.
2Thes 3:8 Let their hard work be an example to us,
1Thes 3:2 as we send fellow laborers and ministers of God
1Thes 3:2 to encourage and establish them concerning their faith,
1Thes 3:3 so that they will not be shaken by afflictions.
1Thes 2:2 Give them the boldness to speak the Gospel in the midst of conflict(and suffering they will see and grieve)
1Cor 2:4 in demonstration of the Spirit and power
Col 4:17 and to fulfill the ministry they have received in the Lord.

Go team we have committed to pray for you every hour of every day you are in Haiti. May you be blessed and filled with the spirit of God on your journey. May you find great joy as you look into the eyes of a child you are helping and loving on with Christ's love!

Your sister in Christ,

Last Lunch with my boys!!! :)

Last lunch with my boys before I go... Aren't they handsome, if I do say so myself..
Brett, Angela, Braei (hiding behind Brant) Brant and of course "ME"...
Gonna miss my kids and hubby but CAN'T wait to go!! 12 HOURS NOW!! YEAH!!!!!
Hi team, I just spoke with Vincent and he secured a video camera and a couple of microphones so the photo/video team is ready. We plan on interviewing some, if not all, of you tomorrow about your expectations for the trip, what God has been teaching you, etc. so 'act natural' (ha ha).

Haiti weather tomorrow is high of 99 degrees with 60% chance of rain, mm mm, toasty. I had an engineer tell me that with such high humidity it can't get above 100 degrees, so we have that to look forward to (again, ha ha).

Bon jou

Isaiah 40:28-31

I will be praying Isaiah 40:28-31 for all of you! May you run & not grow weary in all the Lord has for each of you while in Haiti!

"Have you not heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the Everlasting God,
the Creator of the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of His understanding.
He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak & tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run & not grow weary.
They will walk & not faint. "

All for His glory!!!
