Summer 17 has begun!

Summer has begun!

We are thrilled to say that the first team of summer 2017 took off Thursday May 19! These bright, smiling faces are headed to Africa!

We have been praying, planning, and looking forward to this very moment for an entire year! 

Our team is prepared to follow God's call and serve, love, learn, and laugh with our Malawian friends. The pure joy that emanates from our children is contagious...we know soon our team will be experiencing that joy and sharing their own. 

There is no moment like pulling into the Grace Center and having a welcoming party sing praises to Jesus and expressing how happy they are to see you. Soon, our first team will experience just that! 

So, they're having fun and experiencing the joy of Jesus...what can YOU do?

1. Pray! 

2. Pray again!

We want to bathe our team and our staff and children in prayer. While praying over Karen before she left God gave me the words peaceful, joyful, productive, and Spirit-filled. Pray with me! 

Set time aside to pray over the summer ahead, pray the blood of Jesus over our team, pray for clarity and direction for our staff and team members as they dive into their projects and grow relationships. 

Stay tuned for more pictures and updates as our team gets settled in!
