The day has finally arrived and we are on our way! We were blessed to be met at the airport this morning by our “sending team”…faithful members of our church family…Greg, Marty and Charles. They sent us on our way with much love, encouragement and prayers for safe travels.
So, who are the members of the Thailand team?
Dr. Andy…fearless mission director and leader of this trip and our own “Indiana Jones”.
Brent…youth director and ready to preach at the drop of his “famous hat”.
Joan…our Thai language expert….because she’s been practicing the language more than any of us.
Robert…Bible teacher and biblical resource to almost anything…our personal Wikipedia.
Don..aka “the bodyguard”….literally and spiritually. Prayer warrior for the team.
And me…an encourager with a tiny bit of enthusiasm mixed in :)…although because of my seat locations so far, I’ve been nicknamed “the diva” :).
We’re all ready to face the known and unknown, with our confidence in the promise of our Lord: “….And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b). These last words spoken by Jesus before ascending into heaven are a glorious promise we will center our lives around and find ourselves blessed beyond our expectations.
We’ve reached Seattle and ready for the first of the long parts of the trip. Keep praying and more to come!
Love and blessing…Kim
