We leave for Africa in 5 days! Isn't that crazy? Crazy good but also a bit crazy because we still have so much to do. As I said in last night's blog post, it helps me to feel less jittery when I think about why God is taking us over there. But our team still really needs your prayer support.

Here's what our team leader Danielle sent out today:

“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

These Jitters are Normal, Right? As you can imagine, our B-Team is starting to experience some pre-missions jitters! We are all so excited & yet now as we are only 5 days from Swaziland, we are realizing everything HAS to come together… and quick! Please pray for the following:

* God’s peace would rest upon us, allowing us to calmly & clearly execute every tangible thing that has to be done. Or, as i like to say, pray that my brain doesn’t become mushy!

* Ask God to strengthen our inner most beings, that our spirits would be in tune with the Holy Spirit’s leading, that we would sense & know God’s presence in these final preparation days. Ephesians 3:16

* Pray that God keeps our bodies (and our families, too) healthy & strong for the days that lie ahead. Pray that each team member would have sweet sleep that allows for refreshed & energized days both now & during the trip! 1 Peter 2:24

* A personal request: please pray for my seven year old. His head collided with the corner of our dining room table last night. After the blood stopped gushing, we were able to see that it was a small puncture wound, not needing stitches. However, today our little guy has been lethargic & complaining of a headache & has some signs of a mild concussion. We’re attempting to use wisdom to know whether we need to see a doctor or not and how to best take care of him. Pray for his healing and quick recovery.

God bless each & every one of you praying for us, Danielle & The B-Team
