May... so many words for May. Excited, scared, expectant, hopeful, curious, joyful and transition. The father from Fiddler on the Roof keeps dancing in my head, but instead of his popular song Tradition he is singing Transition!
Please pray for us as we transition repeatedly this month. We will have moved from Waxhaw, stayed at Kristi's mother's, visited friends, flown across the world, joined a new culture, and entered into our training. Just writing it all down makes my head kind of whirl.
Please pray for our health during this time of transition too. We have seen so many under attack of illness and or injury as they enter service overseas.
Please pray for our flights(May 10th - 13th). That they will be on time, that they will allow all our luggage(and contents) to pass through, that we will have no problems in customs or entering the country, that all our luggage would arrive with us, that we would be seated and surrounded by amazing people who are patient and enjoy our kids, and that we would all rest.
Please pray for our hearts, as we are already missing you and as we strive to fall in love with the people of PNG.
Praising God for all His mercies and lavish blessings He has poured out on us this month.
Thank you for doing this with us!
We love you,
John and Kristi
Please write us as to how we can pray for you, it really is a gift to us to help us feel connected and lets us know what is going on back home.
