Paul left today with our Missions Team to Manassas, VA. (Sad face, mine.) I hated to see him go, but love that God will do brilliant things in and through everyone involved. I'll meet up with everyone on Friday to help out with a Leadership Conference in D.C.
The following is a prayer guide that we've created for our Team. We would really love if you prayed with us on a daily basis. I'll keep you updated if you care:) Thanks!
