Do you pray?

October 8, 2008


In preparation for our flight the following morning Kate and I found ourselves re-packing the room we had called home last week. Somewhere amid the preparations Kate discovered that she needed to drive to the store–“Wait, where is my license?” “Uh…?” Over the twenty minute search that ensued I found myself dreaming up all kinds of identity theft nightmares. We checked all our bags, under the beds, in the bathroom, in our training room and with the lost-and-found at the airport–Nothing. Finally, as a guessture of defeat I said outloud, “Jesus help us find Kate’s license!”  No sooner had the words left my lips than I remembered one last pocket we hadn’t checked and of course there it was.  Why hadn’t we started in prayer?

With so much to do, this is for Kate and I a season of beginnings and we would like you to join us by starting in prayer.  To that end,  let me update you on some of our long standing prayer requests: 

Finances

We are so close!  Though we are still waiting for the dust to settle (i.e. for people to get their paperwork in to Worldventure), it looks like we almost have all of our monthly support needs!  Though we still need around $7,000 in one-time costs, we are still praying that God would make a way for us to get to the field before November 6th.  

Departure 

With just four weeks left here at home (assuming the Lord opens doors), we have a lot to do.  Not only will there be goodbye and packing, but we’ll also be getting Jude’s passport, making a will, working with our supporters and a whole lot more!  If our training is correct then we’re about to enter the phase known as “Chaos”–need we say more?

Jude

What a great baby!  We couldn’t ask for a more laid-back, low maintanence baby!  He’s now up to six(ish) hours of sleep straight per night and growing like a madman!  So far he is both healthy and happy–please pray for wisdom as he continues to change.

Thanks for standing with us and thanks for praying for us!

Joey and Kate
