Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21

There is only one day until we board our flight for Bangkok, Thailand. As I reflect on what God has done in the past six months as we have been preparing for our 2019 Cross Cultural Project, I am completely amazed by how truly good he is. Preparing a team of incredible guys that love the Lord, hospitable and helpful Global Partners overseas, and 100% of our financial support only scratch the surface of his goodness.

Six months ago we were praying for all of these things. Not only have they come to fruition, but God has exceeded our expectations. I eagerly await to see how God continues to do far more than all that we ask or think while we are in Thailand. I ask that you would join us in praying for God to be glorified through our lives as we see and share his presence and power.

PRAYER POINTS:

  • Health and Safety

    • Pray for uneventful travel to Bangkok, protection in the city, and safe travels home. 

    • Ask God that our team would not get sick. Pray for quick adjustment to new foods and hot weather. 

  • Reliance on God

    • Pray that we would see our insignificance and rely on God in everything.

    • Ask that our inabilities plus God's abilities would lead to limitless possibilities. 

  • Humility

    • Ask that we would be learners, coming to aid the Global Partners in what God is already doing and not push our desires on them.

  • Understanding of the Gospel

    • Pray that Thai students we interact with would hear and accept the Gospel of Jesus and see Him as ultimate, worthy, and worth it.

    • Pray that our team would see more of our sinfulness, more of God's holiness, and understand more greatly how the cross bridges the gap between the two.

  • Encouragement to Local Believers

    • Pray that our team would be a breath of fresh air to the local Thai believers and Global Partners. As they do not have much exposure to Christians, ask God to allow us to be uplifting to them. 

  • Relationships

    • Ask that relationships would happen quickly and depth could be had between our team, Thai students, and local believers. 

    • Pray for depth of love and care between our team members as we rely on one another and point one another towards God.

  • Anxieties 

    • Pray that the peace of God would surpass all understanding as we travel, teach, and connect with Thai students. 

    • Pray for us to cast all our anxiety on him because he cares for us.

  • Thailand

    • Pray for a country surrounded by spiritual darkness. Pray that people would accept the Gospel of Christ.

    • Ask God to send out laborers to the harvest field. Prepare the hearts of our team for the potential of future, long-term missions.

  • Praise God for Full Support!

    • Join us in thanking God for His provision as our total support goal was raised.

We as a team look forward to keeping you updated on what God is doing in and through us during our time in Thailand. Specifically, we are excited to share how he does far more abundantly than any request here.
