The Lord's abundant provision

Thanks to the Body of Christ, and our sending Church, Calvary Chapel of Greer for being the conduit through which this mission team has received such wonderful love, encouragement, and through which we've seen God's abundant provision. Once the vision was shared, the Church's response to support this work was nothing short of overwhelming. As a missions team, we can truly say that our Church is "Sending" us to do the work of the ministry that Jesus has laid out before us. What a great feeling that is! Once again, thank you.

The team has been working hard to prepare for the trip; long Sunday night meetings were devoted to prayer, fellowship, planning, and learning dramas to perform during our outreaches. They also devoted themselves, along with countless others, to the fundraising projects that not only blessed each team member with financial provision, but during the process the team began to mesh, to grow, and to work together. The yard sale and the Honduran dinner were The Lord's way of teaching this team how to serve when they were tired and pulled in too many directions, like they'll be for 12 days.....

To all who read this we ask just one more thing of you. Be in prayer, serious prayer, for the work that God has called us to as a Church! In Greer and in the Upstate of S.C. we are called to make disciples, to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (A group of equipped saints are headed to do the work!!). In our missions outreaches we are called to undergird the work and to strengthen the arms of the full time missionaries that have devoted their lives to the same things we have, but on foreign soil. Remember what Jesus said-
Mt 9:37 –Mt 9:38 (NKJV) “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

By the work of the Holy Spirit, the fearless obedience of those called to be involved, & for the Glory of The Lord, there are more laborers heading for the Harvest Field....

Continue to pray
