On a Mission!

FINALLY- i’ve decided to brave it and do something i’ve always wanted to do but have always been scared to commit to.  this summer i’m going on a mission to Spain!  i’ll be joining the local Church of Ireland (St. Mary’s of Comber) in going to Cabra with Exodus (www.exodusonline.org.uk).  we’ll be mostly working with kids as well as doing a bit of manual labour, working alongside a local Church (9th-20th July).

i’ve joined the team half way through the course so i was really thrown in the deep end at the residential last weekend in Portstewart!  i attended my first team meeting last night and was really very encouraged by the young people’s openness and honesty.  I’m excited to see what God’s going to do with this group, praying that He’d use us for His glory.

over the next few weeks there’s lots to do, ranging from fundraisers, team organising meetings, a parents night, commissioning service and workshops so it’d be great if you could support the team in prayer (there’s 11 of us in total, including the team leader and coworker).  here’s a few prayer requests i’d appreciate you to keep in mind:

please pray that i’d really gel with the team and support them in the mission we’ve been given.

pray for the team leader as he has a lot to juggle as it is, pray for strength and wisdom as he leads the group…

pray that i’d fit into my role as coworker and figure out what exactly it is i’m meant to do!

pray for each individual team member, that God would meet them where they’re at and that this mission would be a milestone in their faith in so many ways.

pray for the Church in Spain that will be welcoming us, pray for a sense of unity and a growing sense of expectation that God is going to be at work.

pray for the team as we fund-raise and carry out our designated jobs, especially seeing that most of the team members have a tight exam timetable!

pray for St Mary’s Church of Ireland, that they would really rally around their young people and be a ‘crutch’ that they can rely on.

also if you’d like to show your support why not come along to our Barn Dance next Friday (13th May) from 7.30-10.30pm in the Parochial Hall.  it’s £6.00 a ticket (which includes supper) and you can have a family ticket (4 persons) for £18.00.  or you could pop down to our carboot sale next Saturday (14th May) between 9.00am-12.00pm and see what you can find!  it’d be great to see you at either one of these, or both if you’re that keen!

thanks for your support to date! God bless, connie xox
