PRAY FOR BETSIE RIGHT NOW!
She is at a local church right now to share with the youth group about her upcoming missions trip to Thailand. This particular congregation is a HUGE church with a big youth group.
Pray that she'll not be nervous but will be able to calmly and clearly share the story of what she'll be doing and the needs of the people she will be ministering to. Also, pray that she'll stir up the young people who hear her to want to also go and tell about God's love and plan to others.
P.S. The photo above is of Betsie with 3 of the NORTHERN THAILAND IMPACT MINISTRIES team who were visiting another local church last night. To read more about the work of NTIM, visit their website: http://gontim.org/main/
Later tonight: Got a call from Betsie a bit ago. Apparently her talk went really well but she ended up having a different subject matter than what she had planned for. They actually wanted her to speak about her trip to Romania this past summer with Adventures in Missions. But that's alright. She switched gears and still used it as a chance to encourage the students to seek God's will for them concerning missions. And even though it wasn't what she had planned, we know that God can use all things for His glory and our good, even last minute changes in topics.
