they're off

Here is the fall mission team that is serving in Moore Oklahoma until next Tuesday. 
It is amazing how God knit this group together.  They had 10 teens and 6 adults heading down yesterday.  Our niece and 2 family friends came down from Wisconsin to be a part of the trip.  The team was picking up a friend from the air port last night that had flow in from Phoenix to join them.    A few friends and the youth director from our old church was planning on meeting up with them as well.  Since it is so close to Tulsa, I know Louis had another very special friend driving up to join him as well!  I have been praying for the Lord to bind them together in a beautiful way as they get to know one another while serving the people there in Oklahoma.
I am so thankful for their willingness to serve.  It is a first mission trip for a big handful of the team.  But they were excited to go and be the hands and feet of Jesus.  Most importantly I am praying for the Lord to work in the hearts of our people there and also the hearts of those that are still with out so much, and those that are still hurting deeply in many ways.   I am praying for them to be the listening ear when it is needed... sometimes the victims just need to share their story again.  I am praying that the people they serve can clearly see the love and compassion of Jesus shining through them.  Ultimately, I am praying that the Lord opens doors to share Jesus with those they serve.
