This weekend (October 25-27) I will be attending "The Journey Deepens," a weekend retreat/conference in Atlanta for those preparing to be missionaries. There will be about forty of us there this weekend who are seeking God's preparation before entering into full-time missions. We will meet in large group and will also divide into smaller groups that are led by a missionary mentor, someone who has already served in missions and can offer invaluable advice and encouragement, as well as answering any questions we may have.
As I prepare to go, I would love to ask for your partnership in the following things:
- Pray for the prospective missionaries coming to connect with the Lord, experienced missionaries, and each other
- Pray for clear minds, open hearts, and physical health and endurance of each participant
- Pray for safe travel for all involved
- Pray for wisdom, grace, and patience for the speakers and staff
- Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send forth workers into His harvest fields
I can't wait to post some amazing praise reports of what God did within me during the weekend. Thank you in advance for your much-appreciated prayers!
