At 5:00 a.m. this morning, the team, running on adrenaline, assembled at the Orlando International Airport to say good-bye to family and friends, check their bags and board their planes. They appear to have made their connection in Miami and landed safely in Guatemala City. We are still awaiting our first report from them on the ground.
In the meantime, as team members settle into their quarters for the week and prepare for ministry time during church tomorrow, let's pray for them. Join me as I pray from Ephesians 1:16:
Dear Jesus, thank you for each of the team members who followed your plans for their lives and left on this mission trip this morning. We pray that You will give them spiritual wisdom and insight so that they might grow in their knowledge of You. We pray that their hearts will be flooded with light so that they can underand the confident hope you have given to them as your children, your holy people, who are your rich and glorious inheritance.
We also pray that they will understand the incredible greatness of your power toward them because they trust you. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms. May each team member gain a greater sense of who they are and whose they are as you use them to bless the Guatemalans this week, in your powerful name we pray, Amen.

Hey, team! How about some pictures?
