And They’re Off!


Our Volleyball Camp team headed to Portland for an 8:30am flight to Dulles in Washington D.C. at oh-dark-thirty this morning. One of Suburban’s Elders, Jason Nelson, prayed over the team as they left and he and his wife Christina are graciously providing chauffeur service for the team’s trip to Portland.

Some of you will see this post first thing this morning — please pray for travel mercies as the team begins to make their way across miles and time to Latvia. Pray for resilience as the team will likely have some surprises in the midst of this travel time. Pray for the ability to be completely in the moment – both for this time of travel and then for the time in Latvia – present to the Lord and each other for whatever He puts before them each and everyday.

As we visited before the team left, it also dawned on me that each of them is leaving tasks and relationships that are important to them here in the States. Please also pray for the families that will be carrying on for the next 10 days with a beloved family member not as near at hand. Pray peace, ease of logistics, and God’s abundant grace for these families over the next couple of weeks.

And in all things may God be glorified and His purposes accomplished!
