Dear Prayer Warriors,
Thank you for your faithful prayers this past week! Our team could not have accomplished all that they did without your support and most importantly your prayers. That will be a theme that your son or daughter, wife or husband will come back with…how powerful prayer is. Living in West Michigan, in the United States, we become so complacent and for the most part we feel very “safe” so we don’t commit every action to prayer. Our comings and goings, should still be covered in prayer but we forget and go about our days. This past week our team has never left the base or a village without first committing their actions to God in prayer. Praying that they will be used by Him to point the glory back to their Lord and Savior. Shouldn’t that be our prayer here as well?
So, your job is not yet done. Your prayers are still needed. Right now our team is about 20 minutes from landing in Atlanta and leaving there at 8:40 arriving in GR at 10:28 am. Pray for smooth travels as they fly home. Pray that they are led to share their stories with those they meet. Pray that they are able to come home and put into actions the lessons they have learned this week.
In the next few weeks take time to ask questions and listen to their stories. If you donated money to a team member, call them up or take them out for dessert and listen to their stories. You made it possible for them to be the Hands and Feet of our Savior this week. You are part of this team.
If you are able to come to the Grand Rapids Airport to welcome the team home, the team would love to see you there.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your faithful prayers. To God be the Glory, Now and Forever, to God be the Glory Amen!
In His Grip,
Kristy Van Wyhe
