As Donnie and I have planned for this trip, we have continued to pray that it would not just be a trip with a good cause.  We have prayed that it would be a life changing experience for all 5 of us.  We pray that the seeds of spreading the gospel will be planted in our hearts and that our faith will be strengthened by trusting in God alone for ALL things.  It is hard describe the feeling of peace that comes with trusting in God alone.  How freeing!

I start with the feeling of peace because it is not always my first response to thinking about our trip.  We have been stressing the importance of staying together and not wandering off as we travel.  None of our kids are very fearful about strangers or new places.  The blessing and the curse.  The blessing is that they all are totally looking forward to this upcoming adventure.  The curse is that they are not mindful of the dangers of being in a 3rd world country.  I have struggled with how to raise an awareness without instilling outright fear.  Honestly, I would take outright fear right now.

But then I go back to that feeling of peace that I have felt about this trip.  If I trust God with the plans of our trip, our finances, and all the other details…then why wouldn’t I trust Him with the safety of our kids?  So we will continue to stress the importance of staying together and the importance of trusting God with all the details.

    Have begun to pray for all of you. As a missionary kid, I can share some of your kids feelings. Will pray especially for safety until we hear from you again
