The India CCP team left Project on Friday. People from South Project gathered at 6am on the beach to pray for India, the CCP team, and our own hearts for missions. Mike Polley gave some direction for the prayer time and presented some related scripture, and then we formed groups around each CCP person to pray. The early-morning light on the ocean and the sand beneath us was a great environment in which to praise our God and ask him to work. It was refreshing to pray for the CCP team and remember that we can partner alongside their team through prayer this summer.
Later that morning, before Bible Study Training, there was a joint North-South Project send-off time for the CCP team. The project directors prayed over the team as a whole, and then the CCP team gave us an “encouragement:” Krispy Kreme donuts and hot chai tea.
