En Route to Taiwan

Well, I am officially en route to Taipei, Taiwan. Unfortuanately, Big
Bertha is not along for this trip (my computer), and my itouch is
difficult to type on because these nubby thumbs pick up 3 letters at a
time. All of that said, I am unsure how much I'll be able to blog. I
will do my best! I still don't know much of the losgistics but I'll
let you in on my knowledge thus far-
When we arrive in Taipei we will travel to a church/school to do an
English camp for a few days! The first few days we will be staying at
Adams girlfriends house (guy on my team) who Is also the daughter of
the pastor! We will also do a youth night. Then we will go serve in an
AIDS orphanage. We are also doing some college ministry and some other
various activities. One thing you must know when you travel across the
world is flexibility!
I have met my team now, and I would like to cyberlly introduce them to
you so you can be praying for each of us!
-Adam, previously mentioned, is one of my good friends from wetumpka.
He is 24 and is the youth minister at Cains Chapel. He is also a team
leader for us!
-Ryan is our other fearless leader from Pensecola. He is a graduate of
Asbury in Kentucky.
-Ryans sister, Lindsay is also on board from Pensecola. She currently
attends the University of Alabama, so rivalry has already taken place!
-Josh is on board who is in School at West Florida. He has served in
both Peru and Nicaragua.

So, that's us! But, more importantly we are travelling with the Holy
Spirit who has appointed and called each of us to vessel Him to Asia.
I am expecting Him to be the real teammate that matters! And, I pray
that the Lord allows us to leave a part of Him there. That emphasiZes
that we will see someone come to salvation! The bible says that in His
resurrection, our Savior gifted us with the Holy Spirit that would
live and guide our lives. Oh, how I love that same Spirit!
My prayer is similar to that in Haiti- I want to see His glory;
healing, miracles, salvation, prophecy, whatever He allows me to see.
Yes, I have seen so much of His power but like Moses, I want to see
more( Exodus 33:18) more of your glory, Lord, more of YOU! I am really
excited to escape the reality I live in and spend some time with my
preious Jesus. I will end with the same prayer Paul sent to Ephesus:
"Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given
me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for
which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it
fearlessly, as I should." Ephesians 6:19-20

Thankful for all of you, and covet your prayers! Love..
