Monday Musings

I really should write more regularly.  As in...at least a specific day each week.  Might as well be Monday huh?

In less than a week I'll be in Mexico, south of the border from Yuma, Arizona.  I'm going with my friend's church- Zion Hill Baptist Church, in Wesson, MS.  This is the first time I've gone on a mission trip with them.

Why is that a big deal at all?  Well- I'm going with my friend Stik.  He went with me to Ukraine.  And to Belize- twice!  And to Chicago.  And to Pikeville, KY.  And...I can't even remember if there are others.  Stik's an Engineer.  He has ADD but he's blessed with lots of Common Sense and Genius.  He's just the kind of guy you always want with you on mission trips.

And so now I get to go with him somewhere instead of vice-versa.

I'm not crazy about driving all the way out there.  Back in about 1990 or so, Stik, his cousin (and my college roommate) Richard and I rented a Cadillac and drove to Yuma to be in a friends wedding.  It was a classic Road-Trip.  With two Vans and a trailer in tow, this will be a little different.

I've been asked to lead the nightly "Devotions".  Unless the Lord gives me something else I intend to flesh-out the 5 Objectives of a Mission Project that Adventures in Missions uses:

Listen in Prayer
Share Your Faith
Build a Meaningful Relationship
Meet Felt Needs
Debrief and Respond.

And I probably won't have a "Monday Musing" next Monday.  I don't think I'm taking the computer on this trip.

Me, too. We'll be providing prayer cover. What an awesome opportunity!
