Yesterday was our team planning and scheduling, everyone was busy to get busy for the year. lol! sometimes we need someone specially people above to encourage us or motivate us to think or aspire higher things (there were lots of times that we need their toughness over us... which I found amusing). Hubby and I were thinking of things to do since our primary role is to host the summer teams or individual missionaries. Submitting a year plan was quite a struggle for us... But the God we serve has higher purpose for us, leading us to people who would helps us pursue the plans God has for us.
I know 2010 will be as challenging as the year that has pass but for sure it will be more than victorious!
So here is our plans this year:
Feb. - March - Malaysia trip (will join a group of missionaries who will have a Christian concert tour in Malaysia. Hoping hubby could play with the band and minister to the Malay people).
May - Canada trip (considering/praying to join the training department who will visit and minister a refugee ministry in Hamilton, Canada. Knowing this trip would help us more in understanding Western missionaries who come and join with us especially we are the one in-charge in this department. This would be a tool to recruit for more missionaries long or short term to join with us.
July - Sta. Maria, Laguna (hoping that a summer would join YM and we plan to bring them to this place where we could minister with the kids. This is place where seriously damage by typhoon Ondoy. And the people living is this community are mostly Ita's ( a tribe). It would be amazing to give these children a different kind of ministry. May the Lord bless the desires of our hearts not for our sake but for His Name sake).
August - Botolan, Zambales hoping that a summer would join YM and we plan to bring them to this place where we could minister with the kids. This is a mountain side area, we came here to hold a Kids Christmas party. Most of the children came form a two to three hours walk to where we held the party. It would be amazing to give these children a different kind of ministry. May the Lord bless the desires of our hearts not for our sake but for His Name sake).
October -Cambodia (We plans to bring youth for a 10 days mission exposure in this place . We hope to minister to these people through kids and youth ministry.)
Our greatest hindrance.... is lack of funds.
Our greatest fear.... is ourselves.
Our greatest hope.... is GOD!
So help us God!
Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!
