The first year my husband and I were married we made a vow to ourselves and our family that we would be committed to going to the nations, teaching our children about the world, the cultures and the people and serving them with all that God has blessed us with. We decided then it was biblical to take the first year of marriage off and then every year after we would send someone or everyone on a missions trip every year. This year it's Phil. He is going on his first over seas mission trip to Tanzania, Africa. I'm so excited for him to experience Africa, the people, the beauty and the culture is an amazing blessing. I have only been to Kenya, Africa so his experience will be new and exciting for all of us. Our church, Freedom International Church, is sending a team of 6 to work at Treasures of Africa, a Christian Orphanage, and to minister to the Masi tribe. Phil will get to meet a Pastor that has killed 18 lions! So cool!! It is an amazing blessing to be used by the Lord to minister to people and I am so excited Phil gets to take part in this.
Phil will be gone April 29-May 10. If you could please pray for him and the team that would be such a blessing. Pray for us here at home as well, we will be missing him so much while he's gone. If you would like to help in any other way please let me know and I will tell you how to do that.
Today I’m grateful we have committed our family to ministering to the nations.
