my missions trip

What!? A missions trip!?

A while back, a man came out to our church from Little Rock, AR and gave us a presentation of a ministry he's doing with a few other people. I was really moved by it and if the Lord wills, I will be going on a missions trip with him in December! The Lord is so amazing, I never thought I would go on a missions trip (at least, not to a place like this). But after his presentation, I was totally hyped about it.

Where we will be going:

Ha. Fooled you. I don't really know what I can and what I can't say online. And it's better to be safe than sorry. The place there is communist, and they're Buddhist, so it is illegal to bring Christianity there (we could get in trouble if we were caught there).

What this ministry does:

The main thing they do is build. Orphanages, churches, stores, etc. Anything to help the people out there. They don't actually build the buildings with their own hands, but they direct the money where it goes. So when they go out there they take a lot of cash.

What I will be doing:

Using the gifts the Lord has given me to minister to the people out there! Probably playing the guitar and singing, and working with a lot of the children out there, (many of whom are orphans).
What I need to get to go down there:

Three thousand smackers.

The worst part about the whole thing:

The shots. Dag-nab-it. I'll have to get them real soon now.

What to pray for right now:

1. That the Lord would work things out and allow me to go and serve.

2. That God would provide me the money I need.

3. The trip down there (it will be somewhat hazardous).

4. That I will be a great help and blessing to the believers out there.

5. The shots.

So go ahead and start praying for me, it's still a few months away, but everything is pulling together really quickly.

God bless,

I will be praying for you and the others serving on the mission trip every day. God bless the work you will do.
The shots are never as bad as we expect them to be, and they're over quick, so try not to be too nervous :)

Missions trips are awesome! My brother and I spent our most of the summer in Europe, and we were like, in awe of God's power to change people no matter what culture they're part of. God bless you as you continue to serve Him!

Will be praying for you, Kade...I am sorry, I just had to smile when you said "The shots. Dag-nab-it." :D
I am not real fond of shots either...

God bless you on the trip and that through this, God will be glorified and praised!

I am so happy that you are going so you can keep my brother in line. :0)
Stay in touch about your support so we will know what needs to be done. You will be blessed and God will be praised during this trip.
