Up to the minute update


Dear <<First Name>>

In less than 24 hours we will be on the ground in Guatemala!  We leave Boston tomorrow morning, July 7th, at 5:35am and will return Monday August 5th at 5pm. While in Guatemala we will be hosting three short term teams.  The first two groups are youth teams from Long Island, NY and Davenport, IA.  The final group is a medical team with 10 people from across the USA and a nurse from Canada. We will help host the teams and facilitate their time in Guatemala.  At the same time we will continue to build relationships in Guatemala and will gain crucial experience with the work at the ground level in Tactic. This work, along with some discussions on the administrative side will continue to lay the foundation for longer range strategic planning that we will be doing this fall.  We are so blessed that all of you partnered with us on this journey. Your prayer and financial support is a vital part of God's work and we are excited you are participating with us. Please use the praise and prayer requests below to guide you as you pray for our trip and the ministry.

 
As a reminder here is a map of the area we will be in while we are in country. We will arrive in Guatemala City (lower center) and will travel by van to Tactic (middle), and will be traveling in the Alta Verapaz area (yellow shaded region around Tactic) to follow-up on the current projects and get a grasp of the needs in Tactic and the surrounding towns. 


Praises:

  • We now have 37 people lifting us up in prayer for this trip!
  • We raised all the funds we needed for this trip and are over 1/3 of the way towards our total goal for 2013.  Praise God for his provision, and pray a blessing over our donors for their sacrifice and support.
  • Praise God that all the details for all the teams traveling this summer came together!
  • Please praise God for the continued clarity he provides each day. We are blessed to see his hand in all that we are entering into with IMUSA. There are some interesting developments that we will be looking into while we are there; and only God can give us clarity on how and what He wants us to do. Praise Him for His faithfulness, and pray that we are attentive to His leading.
  • Praise God that the Seeds of Tomorrow Greenhouse project is wrapping up ahead of schedule.
  • Truly praise God that Tim's foot and back are both healthy and injury free.

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for safe travel to and from Guatemala and during our trip. Pray that tropical storms and hurricanes don't impede our travel.
  • Pray for deep connections and relationship development to continue.
  • Pray that we remain healthy during all trip activities.
  • Pray that God provides guidance to seek out those people and projects that he specifically wants IMUSA to engage in for 2014.
  • Pray for us and all the short-term team members, that we will grow in relationship with Christ and understanding of the world God loves.
  • Pray that our Lord is glorified in every word and action during the trip.   
  • Pray for our flexibility as schedules will often change suddenly.
  • Pray regarding discussions about language school and our spring 2014 transition to full-time ministry with the field directors.
  • Pray for those we encounter in the various communities, Pray they see how valuable they are to God and clearly understand what is working well in their communities because God is already at work there.
  • Pray for spiritual growth in us and the Guatemalan people.
  • Pray for our partners, Impact Ministries Canada and Ministerios Impacto as they prepare for our arrival.
  • Specifically pray for the leadership of our partner organizations. Pray that God protects them, leads them, and grows them.

 
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests with this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. – Ephesians 6:18

The people of  Guatemala: children, women, and men, all need to hear a clear presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for partnering with us!

God bless,
