Prayer Update for the Ugandan Trip

Dear Friends and Family

It’s Friday morning and we’re a couple hours out from heading towards Uganda.  I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for their faithfulness in prayer and giving.  This trip would not be possible without all of you.  I’m facing this trip with some measure of fear and excitement all mixed together at the same time.  I know the Lord will meet us as we go and it will be exciting to see the ways in which it will happen.

For those of you who asked, I want to give a brief itinerary for the purpose of prayer. 

Friday August 24th-Travel to Amsterdam

Saturday August 25th-From Amsterdam to Entebbe, Uganda

Sunday August 26th-Preaching Solo in Ugandan churches around Entebbe

Monday Through Wednesday, August 27-29th-Pastors Conference and Crusade in the bush of Uganda

Thursday August 30th- ???

Friday August 31st-Launching 24 Hours of Prayer for the nation of Uganda

Saturday September 1st- Ugandan Wedding…etc

Sunday September 2nd- Preaching again in Ugandan Churches, Travel back to US

Here are a couple of prayer requests for the trip:

Please pray that the crusade is effective and many people come to Jesus.   We’re holding the crusade in an area known for witchcraft and there has been much flooding in the part of Uganda as well.  Also, pray that the pastors who come to the conference are refreshed by the Word of God and strengthened to lead their people. 

Pray for our team’s unity.  Also pray that we do more than just get a long, but spur one another forward in the things of God during our trip.

Pray for my wife and my daughter as they stay in KC with family and friends.  Leaving them has been the hardest part about going on the trip so far. 

As always, pray for safe travel and health during the trip, especially one so exhausting.

Finally, please pray God gives me the right messages for the trip.  I’ve only had time to get about 5 ready beforehand, but I know we will need many more. 

Thank you so much to all of you for praying.  You’re prayers are worth more than gold to me in this season.  I will hopefully get Christy to write an update if we are able to communicate from Africa.  I love you all.
