It’s been a few weeks since we’ve shared with you, ok maybe a few months if you don’t follow us on twitter or facebook, but we do have some immediate things we need prayer for:
On Friday, Lesa is leading a group of over a dozen 12th grade girls on a CFS trip (Cultural Field Studies). She will be taking this group of young ladies into the heart of Masaai land, staying in local homes, participating in local culture, building cross-cultural relationship, for about 5 days. She will also be mentoring and discipling these girls, which is something Lesa loves to do more than anything! Please pray for her safety and comfort and for great relationships to be built, both with the high schoolers and with the Masaai. Also pray for special “dad” time with the kids while Lesa’s away.
In just under 2 weeks, Andy is leading the OFM (On-Field Media) team to North Africa, to a country he’s never been to but has always wanted to visit. A country where there are no “missionaries” because such a thing would get you expelled from the country, or worse. A country where the cost to local believers for following Christ is more than most of us could bear. And yet the church lives, and we hope to share in that, encourage the church, and capture some of these stories and people and culture on film for the edification and building up of the worldwide church. Please pray for safety in the air and especially on the ground, for open doors to be able to capture the stories and images of these people, for salt and light to be shared.
In just over 2 weeks, Robbie (excuse me… it’s “Robert” now) will be going on the 5th grade CFS (Cultural Field Studies) trip, something new and exciting for him! Pray for God to continue to mold and shape Robert’s character into something special, beautiful, unique, and Christ-like through this experience.
Lesa is also in the thick of rehearsals for a middle school play, and the high-school spring musical. Pray for balance and managing stress and especially for good relationships and experiences for the students involved.
Andy is in the thick of managing the OFM team, which has now grown to 3 full-time, 2 part-time staff. (In contrast, Lesa is managing over 60 students in the high school musical!) He’s trying to finish videos shot 6 months ago, having shot 3 projects since then that are sitting on his desk waiting to be captured and logged. Pray for him to be a good manager and for good time-management and prioritization. Pray for the team’s efforts to continue to bear fruit all around the world for the cause of missions.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support of our ministries here in Africa. God knit us together for times like this, that we can support and prop each other up in prayer. We thank God for you all.
-Andy and Lesa
