One Week to Go!

Thank you for you prayers; they are greatly appreciated.

Here is a quick up date. A couple of weeks ago, I completed field personnel orientation in Virginia. I had a great time at FPO. I went through many hours of sessions about church planting movements, spiritual warfare, doctrine, principles of language study, legal and financial stuff, ESL training, and more. I had about six immunizations. Moreover, I now have many new friends. I am now back in Alabama. Next Thursday at 5:40 AM, I will be flying out bound for San José, Costa Rica for language study. Please, continue in your prayers for me.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you pray for me:

• Visa stuff
• Preparation during this final week before I leave the States
• Safety in travel on October 23
• Smooth transition after I arrive in Costa Rica
• Language and cultural acquisition during my time in language school so that I can proclaim the gospel of Christ with clarity
• Dependence upon God
• Wisdom that comes from above
• The supremacy of Christ in all of life
• Boldness as God opens doors for the gospel
• Guidance by the Spirit
• Devotion to prayer and the Word
• That the Spirit go before me, preparing the hearts of the people to hear the gospel, convicting them of the sinfulness of their sin, regenerating their hearts, and pointing them to Christ and the cross

Isaiah 43:6b-7 — Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth, everyone who is called by My name and whom I have created for My glory whom I have formed, even whom I have made.
