Arrive at RG!
Day at RG
Day at RG
In preparation for the trip, we put together a prayer shield. It’s a way of praying each day to cover our trip in prayer. We welcome you to pray however you feel led, but if you’d like some guidance, we’ve listed some requests with each date below.
May 19- That the Lord would continue to prepare us to work as a team.
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:8-11
May 20- Sunday is a day of travel with a long layover (aka excursion!) in London- Travel is rough, especially with a big group. Pray for exceeding grace among the trip participants.
May 21- Today we arrive at RG! Pray for good health so that we can be eager to see and do at RG (eagerness can seem relative when we’ve been traveling for 40 hours. Pray the Lord would give us good rest and good attitudes!)
May 22- RG Day- We will be doing many things from fixing machinery to playing soccer with the kids, and anything in between they ask of us. Pray for beautiful interactions between the team members and the Ugandan workers, children and missionaries at RG.
May 24- Clinic Day- As we travel out to the villages, pray that we would have compassion for those we serve, and be selfless in our service.
May 26- Safari day @ Murchison Falls on the Nile. Pray for a relaxing environment that allows for processing and reflection among the team.
May 28- Arrive back in Indy. Pray that we would remember what we have seen.
“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.” Deuteronomy 4:9
“Formission”: Overall, pray that this would not be another mission trip, but a part of our spiritual formation. When explaining our motives for coming on this trip, many of the team members described being in a place of transition. We enter this trip believing the Lord will use it as a part of formation!
