Beverly's Trip

In just a few minutes I will be taking Beverly to the airport. Her flight leaves DFW at 1 PM. She will fly to Chicago for a connecting flight to London. She arrives in London at 6:30 AM on Wednesday (midnight here). From London she will fly to Nairobi -- arriving at 9:30 PM on Wednesday (11:30 AM here).

For those who read my blog and don't already know, she is going with a group of ladies to minister to missionary women from all over Africa. They are brought together in one place in Kenya for a week of intense prayer, Bible study, downloading and being encouraged. Beverly gets about 4 hours sleep a night, as she ends up counseling long after the planned activities are done.

She is leaving two days early -- at my insistance -- to go on a safari with some others in her group. It is a two day, one night trip. They stay in tents. Can you picture that? Beverly in a tent? If you saw pictures of these tents, you could imagine it. They look like 4-star motels! "Tent" almost seems like false advertising. I am so excited for her!

So please join me in prayer for the next couple of weeks for Beverly and these ladies -- as well as the missionary women they will be ministering to.

I am so excited for her and the other ladies that are going. I know this is going to be a wonderful trip for her....and what a blessing for those ladies she will be ministering to. I can't wait to hear all the stories. Sonia and I will be praying for good things from this trip.
We are so excited that Beverly's parents are finally going to be our neighbors......

Rick and Beverly-

"The LORD bless you and keep you;
the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace." '

We will continue to pray for you.
