Mission Trip prayer requests

Hey there! I'm heading to Belle Glades, FL this week for a mission trip with the youth groups from Grace United Methodist and Christ United Methodist. I would like to say that I am totally excited and ready to go.


I am not. My stuff is packed, my to do list is checked off, and we leave in 19 hours.

So my prayer requests are that I stop worrying about the home front. My husband is a wonderful and capable dad. He is loving, he is patient, he is kind, he can kiss boo-boo's, clean up messes, play fun games, and dole out the meds as well as any one.

So what am I worried about?

Well, I'm sending Zach to day camp and this is new. He will have a one-on-one helper who is up for the challenge. But it's Baby Zach, hanging out with the big boys and I'm not there to hover. And this is new. I don't do new. Zach will have a blast. But this is new. I don't do new.

That's it really, that's all I'm worried about. But I worry about Zach. So won't you pray. Pray for Zach - that he uses the potty - and that he does really well at camp.

And pray please, that I can shut everything out but God and what he wants to teach me this week. Because I have asked him 100,000 times to give me an out for this trip. He hasn't. So obviously there is a reason.

And I know that the God who breathed the stars into existence can help Zach use the bathroom. But making that "know" stick in my head has proven to be a challenge.

Please pray!
Oh, and pray for Mark - he has the hardest part!!

Your mission is letting go.

I'll be praying for Mark & the guys. I'm sure Zach will have a blast! And even if he never uses he potty, he's still a great guy!

Have a good trip!
