Yesterday a group from our congregation left for Haiti for a 2-week mission trip. I would have loved to have joined them. Having been to Haiti in the past, I know they are in for an adventure and the time of their lives. Pray for them. It is a HARD trip - the hardest I've ever been on. Some left with personal health concerns, others left family behind knowing they will have little communication with them. One left his wife and 6-month old child. Those may seem small sacrifices, but they are difficult none the less. Please keep them in prayer.
In 2 weeks, another group from our congregation leaves for the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. We also really, really need your prayers. I have posted a list of specific prayer needs over on the Pine Ridge blog.
It really is futile to attempt any mission project without prayer. Thanks for supporting us in this most needed way.
