Go and Make Disciples

Matthew 19:13 NIV • Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them.

Matthew 28:19 NIV • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit

I chose these two verses today because tomorrow morning I am leaving with 65 other people on a mission trip to Philippi WV. I am heading up a team of 22 people to teach Vacation Bible School. We will be going on a "Wide Ride" all next week as to teach the children God Is Real, God Is Awesome, Gos Is With Us and God Is Strong. Friday we will be presenting the gospel message to these children so please be praying for our team.

The rest of the people will be working on fixing up homes in the area. Then in the evening we will all come together for a bible study or two of the nights we will be doing community events.

The Lord tells us we need to go out and reach people. It may be people in your own back yard. You too are called to go out for the Lord. We are to be His disciples and give God the Glory.

I hope to connect to the Internet while I am on my trip and do daily up dates on this blog so please come back and see what we are doing and how you can help us with prayer.

So I am asking today of you to stop take time and pray for:
safe travel
we can make a difference in their lives
hearts will be open to hear God's word

Sandi, thanks for your blog, friendship, encouragement, and in adopting Dan this week. We'll certainly be praying from the home front.
Love,
