Katrina Team Leaves in a Week

Almost exactly a week from now, the Katrina Team will be flying out of PDX, making a short stop in Denver, continuing to New Orleans, and driving to Pass Christian, MS. I want to thank you all who have supported us thus far both by your prayers and by your finances. At this point, I want to give you an update on our current financial situation and let you know how you can be praying specifically for this mission.

As of last Sunday, the support total for the team was about $8,000, which is an incredible thing, worthy of thanks, but is still only half of what is required to send 17 people. I would ask that if you feel led to support what God is going to do in us and through us, that you would do so generously as unto the Lord. Again, checks can be made out to "New Life Church" and please indicate on the envelope that it is for the "Katrina Team."

Also, would you join with us in praying the success of this mission. This is not a vacation, we are asking that God does great things and that He is glorified. Please pray for:

  • The team's financial need (Phil. 4:15-19)
  • Each team member's spiritual preparation (Rom. 12:1-2)
  • Opportunities for each of us to proclaim boldly and clearly the Gospel (Col. 4:2-6)
  • Unity among our group and with others at the church whom we'll be serving alongside (Eph. 4:1-6)
  • Protection from the inevitable attacks of the evil one (Eph. 6:11-20).
Thank you for your support. If you'd like to see the team off at the airport, please be at the United terminal of PDX between 11am and 12pm on June 24th, after which we will be checking luggage and going through security.
