Just received from Sophie...
"We made it safely to Belize. The only hiccup on the way down was a two-hour delay on the tarmac in Houston. We are getting settled, ready for lunch, prepping for tomorrow, and heading over to 8 mile to meet with some of the youth to plan for tomorrow's all-day youth activities (and worship with them)."
Praise God for His protection this first day of travel!
* for group unity to be formed.
* that each person would focus on God and not on themselves.
* that God would be glorified through team members' thoughts, words, actions, and reactions as they seek
Him on this trip.
* that God would use the team's efforts to bless the people of Belize, drawing them closer to Himself.
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Phil. 2:1-4
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Eph. 3:20
