Thank you everyone who was praying for my flight today.
Things at the beginning and the end of the flight were good.
The flight itself was probably one of bounciest I have ever had.
I am getting settled into the guest house on a cool Jamaican night in the mountains.
In getting settled in I would love for you to pray for a couple of specific things;
- Health related: While I am very much looking forward to jerk chicken at Border Jerk (those who were on the JAM13 trip know what I am talking about), please pray that I would be wise with my diet. Diabetes creates a real challenge in cross cultural situations.
- Teaching related: I am very much looking forward to teaching and I have many ideas and principles I want to share. Pray that I would have wisdom in what and how to share and when to listen and help students discover things.
- Ministry related: This a very personal request for me. I love ministry opportunities God has given me. In thinking about "my" ministries at EBC, help me to remember that they are the Lord's. My mind is racing through details I may have forgotten but I know first of all, there are godly, wise people who are able to do the work of the ministry without me there. The second truth I know is we serve an amazing God is able to do great things. Pray for me to trust in God.
Thank you so much for your prayers.
