Day 1 Mission Trip Update

Summer 2018 Mission Trip to Myanmar Thursday, July 12 – Saturday, July 28.

After a 35+ hour journey our 9 member team finally made it to Yangon, Myanmar. It was a very tiring trip, but everyone was in good health, spirits, and ready to begin our ministry. We were met at the hotel by three team members who arrived a few days earlier. We have one last team member that will arrive on Tuesday, July 17, which will give us a total of 13 team members for this year’s mission trip.

After clearing airport customs we gathered all our bags and checked into our hotel which is not far from the airport. Some team members shortly after checking into the hotel visited a small orphanage that is badly in need of support while a few more of us met to cover our next two days ministries. We then had dinner together as a team, and called it an evening for some badly needed rest.

Since tomorrow is Sunday, we will break into two groups each will worship with a different small house church, Living Waters and Elisha’s. It’s something I personally look forward to each year. It’s exciting and rewarding to see the passion with which they worship, something that is rarely seen in most American churches today.

Please pray:
-For the safety, health, and effectiveness of our team.
– For the rejuvenation of our tired minds and bodies.
– The team can be an encouragement and blessing to the church congregations we worship with tomorrow.
