As Biz and I are preparing for our third trip (2nd without Kim) to a foreign country, I realize that I have not prayed as much about the trip as this time around. Although I am fully confident that God has a great plan for our team, and I also realize that irregardless of what is happening down in Mexico, I know that it’s in His hands. I have to admit I get a little nervous at times, but I’m human… right?
Also, it is kind of sad that we’re not continuing our relationship with all of the wonderful people we met down in the DR, but again, God has great plans for wherever we feel lead to serve. Speaking of plans, in the past our mission trips have focused mostly on a construction project. This year, our focus is more “Relational” and we’re there primarly to encourage the church leaders. It’s going to be pretty cool what we actually do. Right now, we have a few options:
- Extreme Home Makeover (for one of the leaders)
- Night of worship
- Build… something?
- Ask them what they would like us to do
It’s going to be awesome, and as usual I will be updating the mission blog over at the GlobalX Connect site. Also, we need to put together another “support team” who will be willing to pray for us, or give towards this project, or both. Both Kim and I will be needing prayer for wisdom as I seek to meet people’s needs in another culture, and for my family’s well being as I am away. Of course, praying for travel safety is also needed.
Financially, I need to raise $2,000. Kim and I have decided to contribute some of our own money, but I’ll still need some help. This cost, will of course cover airfare/travel arrangements, lodging, and meals. If you’re reading this, and feel inclined to help in either way you can either:
- Make a check made out to “North Point Ministries – NPM with Queretaro, MX on the memo line. If you don’t have my address you can click on Contact at the top of the page and tell me you need our address and I’ll give it to you.
- Click on this link: Global X Giving and select “Mexico-Queretaro,” trip – May 30th – June 6th, and the name of the person being supported (Ben Nunes)
At this time, I’ve already raised about 25% of my goal. I’ll try and do a small update every week or so to see where we’re at. Thank you all for considering supporting this project. God Bless you.
