always wanted to see the pyramids

When Kara and I packed up and moved our family to Oregon 2 years ago we had no clue about the journey that God had in store for us.

I guess that’s why they call it a journey.

The most recent step in our life is one that will take us far, far away…7, 124 miles to be exact. We’re going to Taba, Egypt.

We have been asked to lead worship for the field forum in August for our denomination. All workers from the Arab lands and Israel will gather together in Taba for encouragement, rest and enrichment before they head back out into the field. For many of these people, this is the only break they will have all year so we feel very privileged to serve them in this way.

Needless to say, a trip like this is expensive. So we are asking you to pray and see if God is calling you to partner with us. We need to raise around $6,000…which sounds like a lot. Actually, it is a lot. But we serve a God who does the impossible.

If you are not able to partner financially with us, we would love for you to keep us in your prayers.
Pray for safety as we travel.
Pray that we will be people of encouragement for the workers.
Pray that the workers will be refreshed during their time in Taba.
Pray that God would provide the finances we need.
Pray for our kids as they will be watched by grandparents while Mom and Dad are away.
