one day before outreach

February 13th, 2011 No comments

Hey all, one last day before we leave for India! We have been cleaning and packing in preparation and we are all very busy. Anyways, I will have limited internet access while in India, so I’m not sure how often I will be able to place updates. We have a team website as well, the address is www.ywamteamindia.tumblr.com. We also have something that allows you to sign up for a particular day to pray for us. The address for that is http://www.doodle.com/e2a4a98fp845ppx2. Thank you all so much for your support and prayers, and I will try to update you as soon as possible

one week before outreach!

February 6th, 2011 No comments

Hey all! I just wanted to let you know that we only have one week until we leave for outreach. For those of you who have just joined on, I will be leaving for Darjeeling, India for seven months. Our team has one guy leader and twelve students. We have grown closer together as a team these last few weeks and we are learning more and more how to function as a team. We underwent a day of missions simulation. Sleeping under a tarp, not knowing what we were going to do next, eating with our hands, practicing hardnosed airport scenarios. It was a great learning experience for our whole team. On the note of our team I would ask if you could continue to pray for us to walk in unity with one another and for us to walk in our roles in the team. We have a very strong team, but we are nothing if we are not acting as one. This last week we had lectures on missions, unity and stewardship. I didn’t really learn anything new, but it was refreshing to hear some perspective on these issues. It is very easy to forget the simplest of things. God has been personally teaching me the value of wisdom. I don’t really know why, but I am fascinated with the concept of wisdom, and seemingly how similar wisdom is with the Spirit of God. I just know that I over spiritualized a lot of things because I felt a pressure to, but I now know that I am a very practical person and that is okay. I am still on a journey of processing all the things going on in my head, but I have a great sense of excitement for what God is going to show me in the future and particularly on outreach. Anyways, I would also ask you to pray for our India dance team, as we are only four people, that God would use us powerfully. That we as a whole team would lift up the name of Jesus and have Him as our focus. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. May God continue to bless you! Love, Kody
