Continue to Pray for our Team

Hi! This is Dorinda. Pastor Rusty will not be able to post a blog tonight but he said he hopes to do so tomorrow night and give you some pictures of the area and the work sight.

I want to ask you all to even more so lift up this team. The work they are doing is quite strenuous - and the altitude makes it even more difficult.

Would you agree with me in prayer that God will give them supernatural strength and endurance to perform the task. I know we have mentioned this several times but again, here are some things that we can agree on together in prayer:

physical strength
endurance and fortitude
smooth work days without unnecessary delays
good working weather
ability for each team member to know what he/she can do to maximize the effort
servants heart
favor with the locals - in the church and community
opportunities for our team to share Jesus
safety and protection
the anointing of God to rest upon them
all things to work according to God's plan and His will

Tonight I have prayed the following verse over our team:
Colossians 1:28-29
"We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy, which so powerfully works in me."

Lord I pray for our Missions Team, that you would minister through them as they proclaim You. Give them opportunities to share You and teach about You, with and in, all wisdom. May they be a blessing to the missionaries and the local pastor. As they labor to build up Your Kingdom, may they work with Your energy - and may Your Spirit work powerfully through them. Strengthen them with Your Might and Your power. Work Your will through them and may Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Thank You Lord. I pray this is Jesus Name.

You all are in my prayers. Grace and I hope to see Beth (A.K.A Mommy) soon, we miss you. I just remembered Beth there is one thing you forgot to pack Ben-Gay (its under the sink and waiting for you when you return). I know you will probably need it by now. Romans 15:20(NIV) will have a completely new meaning to you when you return, pay attention to the last part of the verse. This is a verse that has stood out to me since you left.

We hope to see you all soon and look forward to all the testimonies that are to come from this trip. _Romans 15:20-21 (NIV)_ is a verse that should have new meaning for you if not now by the time the week is through, this is a verse that has really been in my head since you left. Pay attention to the last part of verse 20 and you will see what I mean.
