Mission Minded Monday on Tuesday!

To say the least, Monday was a little hectic and I never got to post. This is my first lesson in preparation to become a missionary, I am sure! Be ready to change up plans in a moments notice!

We have a few mentors in the Missions Ministry that we really look up to. Destination Zambia (Kevin Pestke) and Gospel to Italy (the Barone Family) are some links that will give you an in depth look into their ministry. While both are at different stages in the path to their respective fields, we are learning much from their experiences.

A huge blessing of late is Dan will have the opportunity to travel with Kevin to Savannah, Georgia for an I AM conference. While this is a Deputation Trip for Kevin, it is training ground for Dan! That is not to say we as the "family left at home" won't be learning some things, too. We had planned a mini camping trip the same weekend. Him leaving means we cut it short, or the kids and I learn how to tear down camp! My decision has still not been made!

We are so blessed to be surrounded by great friends who are taking us under their wing, praying for us, and giving us encouragement along the way. We completely recognize that without prayer, none of this is possible. As we seek the Lords direction in all things, we vividly see the power and provision that comes only by prayer.

Some prayer requests!!
~ Safety for Dan and Kevin. They will be driving there and flying home. Alot of miles to cover!
~ Wisdom for my husband as he leads our family, his job situation, institute
~ For me and the children to be a unified support for Dan

Great idea to post on Mondays.

Be prepared to post the same things several weeks in a row. :0)

If you get too into it, people will be asking next week for your departure date.


God will have you ready in His own sweet time. Love you!
