Today I have family and friends beginning a mission trip in Ecuador. Members of Central are leaving today for mission work in Peru. I have a cousin in full-time mission work in Japan. Pray for these efforts and others. Pray for the benevolence projects that are a part of these trips. Pray for the youth camp and adult retreats that are a part of these works. Pray for the many ways that these Christians are reaching out and serving the churches in these areas.
