Thank you, friends, for partnering with us in prayer! The Lord has faithfully been shepherding us over the last weeks, and we give thanks. Would you join us again, especially in the next 10 days, as our trip to India begins?
Our team is prepped and ready to leave for Madurai this evening! Julie Lebo, Amy Imbody, and Erica Reiter will begin the long trek from Dulles Airport to Madurai, India tonight. Please pray for safe, smooth travel, quick and healthy adjustment to time and heat, and for clear minds and hearts as we engage with our hosts.
We are looking forward to four days of teacher professional development (Monday through Thursday) as well as a day (Friday) to observe the teachers in their classrooms as they begin their school semester. Please pray the Lord would use our words, time, and activities to bless these wonderful teachers richly. Our hope is that teachers and students will be blessed with strategies that celebrate the whole child made in the image of God.
Please pray for our families - that they would be comforted by the knowledge that the Lord goes before, behind, and with us on this endeavor. Please especially pray for Julie Lebo's mother who has been experiencing difficult health issues - that she would receive healing, be kept by Him, and have all her needs met.
Please pray that we would be kept in good health for the duration of the trip - mind, body, and soul. God is so GOOD, and we are so grateful for the invitation to join Him in this work...
We look forward to sharing all that He does in this time upon our return! Please keep an eye open for an invitation for "A Night in India," where we will share pictures, praise, and authentic Chai tea!
