Welcome to our exceedingly messy, beautiful life: "a big world is OUT THERE WAITING for us to live in every day. Outside, you will find, there is love all around you... It's a beautiful life & it's a beautiful world & it's a beautiful time... to be here!"

Kenya Believe It?

Please pray for Jade.
He has been called to go on a long short-term mission (or a short long-term mission, depending on how you look at it) to Kenya.
He is stepping out in faith believing that 'where God guides, God provides' and trusting that he will be able to make all the details come together to go.

He has already started a blog.
Go to it here and sign up to FOLLOW it (and get notified every time he updates it).

Pray for wisdom for him.
Pray for God's guidance for him in all the preparation & decisions.
Pray for provision (of money, insurance, housing, travel, etc.).
Pray for discernment.
Pray for health & safety (yes, even starting now).
Pray for travel details.
Pray in advance for all the people he will be serving.
Pray for the relationships he will make.
Pray for his Spiritual discipline and diligence (now and while there).
Pray to see if the Lord is leading you to support him financially, prayerfully, and/or emotionally.  (Your support letter will be coming SOON!)

Oh, and um... pray for his PARENTS (who love having him on the same CONTINENT)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Would you trust this guy on a mission trip?
