If you have read some of our blogs, you may know that I am going to be going on a Medical Missions Trip to Guatemala in a few days. I leave the end of the week and will be gone for 1 week. This past weekend has been very busy and things are starting to become "overwhelming" (if I may use that word) with all that needs to be done before I leave. BUT, I realized that as I prepare for this trip, and let me mention that this is my first missions trip, I must not forget the reason for why I am going and the spiritual preparation that I must do. Sure, there are clothes and supplies that need to be bought and packed, kids to get ready for this "absence" of mommy in the house, a husband that needs to have everything in order in the home before I leave, BUT there is also a lot of spiritual preparation that had and still has to take place.
I started a while back thinking on specific things that I must do everyday and certain areas of this "whole picture" that need to be covered in prayer, and I began to pray just for those things on certain days of the week. I made a list in my head and began to pray for very specific things.
Can I just tell you that with all of the emotions, the thoughts, the nervousness, the anxiety, and sometimes reservations, that God has put even more excitement in me. I feel like I am about to explode with absolute excitement as to what God is leading me into. I have no idea what to expect, even though I have a very well planned out agenda. I have no idea what God will do in these days to come.
So, as I prepare to leave my beautiful family and embark on this journey that I have been birthed for and gifted for by God , I ask that you remember me in your prayers. I ask that you pray as God lays me on your hearts the next few weeks and pray as God leads you to. There may be some that God will awaken in the middle of the night to pray, and I ask that you be obedient to that calling and pray. Pray for the lives that will be touched and call out for the salvations that will take place.
I will share with you this week as the time gets closer and then when I get back. I will be keeping a journal while I am there and blogging on the experiences that God allows me to have while I am there.
I will even post PICTURES when I get back!!!!!!
I want to thank God for this opportunity and, as a part of the Yahweh Sisters Ministry, I am blessed to be able to go to another area of this world and share God's love and message of who He is.
May God use us as we allow ourselves to be wide open to His calling for our lives.
I know that God birthed this desire to go and serve in a 3rd world country in me and to give a gift that God put in me. I know that this is part of my ministry as a Yahweh Sister, and I can't wait to share with you all that God does.
Blessed Beyond Measure,
