Update: Journey Corps

Sun shining this morning and I woke up with the parable of Peter walking out to Jesus on the waves.  If you look to the waves, you will sink - if you focus all on Jesus and his hands, he will guide you safely (and even if you look to the waves, he's there to grab your hand anyways). I keep repeating this in prayer as the time draws nearer to leaving for Cote d'Ivoire.

But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

Just a little update on the preparations for the Ivory Coast: Our team leaves on September 15th, 2012 - if we have approx. 70% of our support raised by that time.  I have had a great time meeting with friends and family, thank you for all your support and generosity! Many of the upfront travel needs have been met and many have offered to join in monthly support and prayer. 

Also, I'm entering my last month of support/partner raising. If you've been meaning to join the team, but you've been putting it off, click HERE to join me in Africa through giving - I'm looking for monthly partners of $25, $50, or $100, but any amount will be a blessing!
