some pictures and prayer request

The week of June 15th-19th was VBS at Grace. I helped with crafts while Dustin manned the door from all the parents checking-in in the morning. We enjoyed lunch together every day, which we both enjoyed greatly. On the last day, we took some silly pictures at a little park:)

My little nephew is 5 years old...where has the time gone? It was a very enjoyable party as we had a water day...very enjoyable on the hottest day of the year so far!
Even Aubrey enjoyed the party running around with some of the girls:)

Today the Czech team is leaving and prayer will be greatly appreciated. We are traveling a lot and hope that God protects us wherever we are. As well that God guides us as we minister to the students of the youth group in Ceske Budejovice. Pray that we all have strength both mentally and physically.

Funding abortion around the globe

Imagine an organization legalizing abortion around the globe!! I think everyone should read this article called Where's the Choice in This?

That's all I have to say about that...

Prayer for this week

  • As the Czech team is getting closer to leaving (19 more days) I feel that we need to continue to pray that our team will be working on our lesson plans, the dance routine to the song Wake Up! Wake Up! by Everyday Sunday, support raising, and just being a team together.
  • Getting a job for the upcoming school year. Every day I am looking at different districts and filling out their applications and looking for job fairs.
  • The final paperwork for the condo be taken care of before I leave for Czech.
  • I acknowledge God in all that I do!
  • Dustin learning Greek before the fall and God providing a scholarship so that he can start seminary in the fall.
  • God continues to grow Dustin and I closer and remember He is the center of our lives.

The Heavenly Man

I had the opportunity to read an amazing book about a missionary that escaped from China and his amazing adventures while he was in China. His name is Brother Yun or also known as the "Heavenly Man." Brother Yen became a Christian leader despite the opposition in China to Christianity but he did pay for it while being imprisoned not just once or twice but three times. The torture that he experienced while being in prison will make you cringe and feel the pain for him. But he continued to look to God and pray no matter what he suffered. He was not a single man during these expereinces. His wife Dejing went through a lot as well since she was married to a man that was wanted in China. What I liked about the book is that it included her side of the story as well and what God was teaching her throught the tough times. The visions that God gave both of them were quite amazing to read and evidence that God will help you through anything and everything when you are willing to listen and see. Dejing knew many times when Yun would be able to escape or be released from prison. Even though Dejing had to raise their two children for some time by herself, I admire her that she continued to be faithful to her husband. Many friends and family told her time and time again that she should get a divorce. But Dejing listened to what God wanted her to do and everything turned out for their marriage.

I pray for all the missionaries that are working in the field, spreading God's word and the opposition they feel many times. I know that I might be joining them one day and pray that God will work in Dustin and my life as we are out there.
