There are 26 days until they leave.
My farmer, farm boy and college girl are getting ready.
Shots, paper work and prayer.
Knees bent low as they trust for each piece of this journey.
They're going because they desire to serve.
The skills they use each day here on the farm yearning to be used for a people in need.
Arms aching to hold those who long to be held.
So, on the wings of prayer, they will go.
To a people and land loved deeply.

He responded in faith to the desire to serve.
It is this same response that is bringing him and 9 others back
to this beautiful land.
It is because of you, your prayers and support that this group is equipped to be the hands and feet of the One who gave all so we can live.
We wait with hope and expectation in this Season of Advent.
Hope of what is to come.
It is this hope that spurs us on.

This Promise spurs us on.
Even in the face of adversity.
We bow low before the Kings of Kings.
We're stepping out in faith that this is the path He has for our family.
We pray to that end that you will join us.

We are His servants and we humbly seek His direction.
There is much to pray for.
