Greg and I are getting ready to hit the road this week for our first official LightSys road trip together. Our first stop will be the Dallas area where we're looking forward to seeing GFA and Hope Fellowship friends. In between visits, we'll be programming, having dental appts (me), closing my PO box and doing all sorts of odds and ends. And celebrating Cousin Sam's birthday!
The next stop is LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas for their Missions Week - January 26th-29th. (Hi Benaiah and Laura and crew!) From there, we'll head to Taylor University in Upland, Indiana (lots of friends here!) and then to Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan for their Missions Fair on Feb 11-12th.
At each of these stops, we get to build relationships with students and professors, recruit interns to work alongside us in LightSys, and share our hearts for missions computing. There are amazing young people out there who are talented with computers and are serious in their walk with the Lord. Now what could they do if they knew that the missions community needs skilled computer workers to help more effectively further Kingdom-building work?
Our next stop is just down the road to Seattle, Washington to work with a Kardia deployment project there for a couple weeks. Greg's been busy working on writing this software and we're reaching some major milestones with it!
We can definitely use your prayers as we set out on this journey. There's a lot of miles, a lot of details, a whole ton of computer programming, and a lot of heart to share. And we so much want the Lord's direction in all of this. Unless He goes before us and guides our paths and open hearts and doors and gives divine appointments, then we're just out there making a lot of noise.
And as much as I like making noise, I don't want to do that when I've been entrusted with this amazing opportunity to be sharing the Lord's heart for the lost world and mobilizing people to be involved in the rescue. If you'd commit to praying for us during these upcoming 5-6 weeks, would you drop a comment below?
We'll keep you updated along the road...
