Tomorrow is coming.

Wow, March 8.  I've been thinking about this day for about a year now.  It's really not my favourite day, as it's my last day at home with my family ahead of the Mexico trip.  However, as hard as it is for our family to be a part we get why these trips are important in the life of our church community! 

So, we as a team have done all we can in advance to prepare for our trip.  We've met, we've served, we've read scripture, we've prayed, we've grown together as a team.   

I am proud of our team, and our community that has rallied around us. They have contributed so much, more than we could ever ask for, and to them, we are exceedingly grateful.  In the past week I have had many conversations with people in our church who have told me that they can't wait to hear back about the work that God will do among us, and through us.  I couldn't agree more.  So, I invite you to Living Hope on Sunday, April 9, at 10.00am, as our community gathers to officially welcome back our team! Where we will spend much time sharing about all we get to participate in.

But, we have much to do in the meantime. 

And it begins tomorrow morning.  

We gather for the last time at 4.00am, and head start heading south by 5.00am.

I ask for prayer:
  1. Tomorrow specifically for our crossing into the United States, that the entry will go with out any problem.
  2. For our travel to Seattle, for timely arrival, and for ease of getting sorted out at the AMTRAK station.
  3. And finally for excited hearts among our team.  
We'll try our best while travelling to update this blog, and at the end of each day we're in Mexico we'll tell you about our day.  Feel free to comment below with blessings, prayers, or words of encouragement; we'll read them together as a team.

Thanks again for all the support that you in our community have shown.  We are deeply grateful and honoured to do what the Lord has called us to do.  

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭| ESV‬‬

May we all, whether we go to Mexico, or remain in Abbotsford, proclaim with boldness, the EXCELLENCIES OF HIM!

Blessings to you and your families in the weeks ahead.
