The next mission team from our youth group is heading out soon: on April 11. I truly believe that they need to be sent, by their christian brothers and sisters who have experienced the trip and know the power that God displayed on that trip. I think we need to be praying for this team, and we need to provide our support. When we went on the missions trip, Tony and Lynette made us some support bags and i think we should do the same. All of us know how important those encouragement letters were to us. we need to bless this next time and pray that God would work in their hearts the way he worked in ours. this is our opportunity to be leaders and to see God's work in missions from a different angle. Let's send out our workers into the field. what do y'all say?

a first for everything

so, this is the first post of the new year, hey? well. lets take it with a BANG!
i have realized in the past few months, that i am FAR from perfect. I am flawed.
And I thank God so much for his opportunities for me to grow in him. I would like to pray for everyone when they are faced with the fact that they are not perfect and need improvement,
that they can face it and invite into their heart to grow into a more Godly woman.
I want to become what God wants me to become, i want to rise to the challenge of
being a Godly woman and Christ-follower. I want his will to be done in my life, even
if it hurts me, becasue I will heal, and I will grow.
Please everyone, pray for Godly growth to occur in your life.

No Words...

Hey guys...I'm writing tonight with a heavy heart. I need your prayers.

About a month ago, the 22 year old sister to one of my best friends contracted bacterial meningitis, and had to be sent to the hospital. The bacteria reacts different ways in different peoples bodies, in Noelle's, it totally shut down her lungs. She spent the last month on life support in a hospital in BC.

When Tasha's (my friend's) family found out what had happened, the flew out quickly to be with Noelle. The doctors told them it was very serious, but also gave them a lot of hope. Tasha's mom has been there with Noelle this entire time, and Tasha, her brother, and her dad have flown out multiple times for short periods.

This Saturday, my school soccer team was in a tournament, and during one of the breaks, some of the people in my class went and prayed for Noelle. Tasha told us that at this point, usually the person had begun to heal, or else the doctors would ask the family to consider taking their family member off life support. Neither was the case for Noelle, because she had already fought this far, and the doctors all had hope that she could eventually pull through. However, Tasha told us that the next morning she would be flying out to say goodbye, just in case.

Noelle passed away last night.

Please keep Tasha and her family in your prayers...as well as my class, and my team...a lot of people are hurting. It would be hugely appreciated!

We praise Him, because His compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness. But we hurt right now, deeply, for a friend and a sister. We will keep our eyes on You.
