Where oh where should I begin? I just got off the road from my first official state-side tour with CTI as Team 14:22. I have to admit…it was amazing. It was tiring because we were constantly on the move and always in a different bed but definitely worth every minute.
I’m trying to think of a “favorite” moment to share with you, but I can honestly say that I can’t pin-point one. Was it hanging out with college students at Oak Hills in Bemidji, MN; playing Red Rover with the kids at Valley Christian School; or maybe having a girls-day-out with a host mom on the road…or how about delivering the “sermon” with Carl at Lincoln EV Free church in Cushing, MN? I loved them all.
Though tour was great, it’s nice to be back in Willmar for a while and have a couple days of down-time before heading off to the Philippines. Yep, that’s right….in case you have not heard….we are going to the PHILIPPINES!!!!!!!!!! We leave in exactly one week. I’m super excited 🙂 I think this is going to be a really great opportunity for our team to draw even closer together and become more unified and perhaps see an overall theme that the Lord has for us this year. We will be going to several different islands in the Philippines, working with a missionary couple over there with different worship teams and a radio station. (If you would like to know more about this ministry keep on checking out the CTI website
So…that’s my update. Thank you so much for all your faithful prayers and support; know that I think of you often and continuously thank my God for you! Please continue to pray for our health and growth and unity as a team. And pray for the ministry in the Philippines, not only what CTI will be doing there, but more of what will go on after we leave. We are fully aware that CTI is only a tool which other ministries use in order to carry out the vision the Lord has given them for their country. We are so honored for to be part of that vision. Pray that we would live a life worthy of the callings we have received.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit (phil. 4)
Until next time. ~G.
