A couple of days ago I was reading 1John 4:18. There is no fear in love, for perfect love drives out fear. The one who fears has not been made perfect in love. The one who fears has not been made perfect in love. One phrase in the french bible we have says....love perfectly banishes fear.
I am thinking that I've not been made perfect in love because boy am i nervous right now. We are very soon taking our kids to the ROC, and beginning a very new chapter in our lives. We are excited relieved and sad to be leaving. There is also a lot of uncertainty left for when we get there. We go knowing God has provided for us in the past, has provided for others in the past, and is providing for us now.
Please know that we are very grateful for your prayers and your support, and that we are going because you are supporting us in prayer, finances, communication, logistics, and moral support.
I now want to be so bold to ask you to pray for us as we travel from 11am EST (leaving Hazard KY) Nov 6th through 2am EST (8am in Brazzaville) Nov 8th.
Tomorrow there will be an hourly schedule and I would like each of you to consider picking an hour to in that 39hr period we will be traveling to pray for us.
