1- Pray for this time of transitioning for our children. They are doing really, really well and excited about the new adventure but I know that days of sadness and uncertainty in change will come. Pray for peace for them, may the joy of the Lord be their strength and that we would be able to speak truth to them and reinforce God's word and promises to them during this time.
2- Pray for God's favor to be upon us as we begin to build relationships with those in Morehead/Owingsville area. Pray that the Lord would align us with the teachers, schools, neighbors, friends, coworkers, medical students, residency physicians, ect. that need to know Him or need to know Him more. Pray for guidance for us and where He wants us to specifically serve and how He wants us to open our home and our lives to those in our paths to share life with them and share Christ with them.
3- Pray for our home in Cushing to have the right buyer and a contract closing by March. We are believing the Lord can do great and mighty things!
4- Pray for Dustin as He joins the Hands and Feet Founders for a trip to the orphanages in Haiti Jan 7-10. Pray for wisdom and discernment for the group going. They have been approached to take over care in 2 more orphanages in North Haiti that would raise the current number of orphans they provide for from 100 to 250. Pray the Lord would confirm to them boldly in unity what He would desire for them to do. Pray that Dustin would have a great bonding time and be able to express to our children there (Luca, Naidine, Wadley and Darbens) how much we love them and care for them.
5- Pray for the Owingsville Clinic where Dustin will be working. Pray the Lord will begin to work in the staff's hearts to draw them closer to Him. Pray that they will seek to serve as one body to do medicine and ministry hand in hand. Pray that there would be no division within them but that the Lord would use the clinic in a mighty way to minister to the people of Owingsville, Ky both physically and spiritually. Pray for my husband to have favor as He transitions into this clinic with an established staff.
6- Pray for safety traveling to Kentucky Thursday, December 27. We have heard a snowstorm is a brewing so please pray for the safety of our family and the drivers that will be driving the truck to meet us in Kentucky.
7- Pray for our families that we leave behind in Oklahoma. Pray they will have much joy to see us obeying the Lord and serving Him wherever He may lead us. Pray the Lord will grant us time to come back and be with them again often. Pray that they would not be anxious about us leaving but that they would be excited to share in our journey with us.
8- Pray for our friends that we leave behind in Cushing. Pray they will continue to walk faithfully with the Lord. Pray that they will grow in wisdom and stature with men and with God. Pray that they will be beacons for their families and their community in Cushing for Jesus!
Much, Much Love to you all and Merry Christmas!!
