In the midst of all my insanity this past week comes an amazing moment for my 2nd daughter.
2010 India Team
She came home and there was a letter here for her from Royal Servants. Royal Servants is who she went with for her 1st mission trip this past summer to India.
Turns out they’ve invited her to be part of the Nehemiah Team. The Nehemiah team is handpicked for this trip.
She had been hoping to be picked for the team, but I thought, eh, it’s a long shot. Not because of my daughter, but because there are so many people to choose from.
The people chosen for the Nehemiah Team are all from this past summer’s mission trips. All of them. This past summer the teams went to:
The Nehemiah Team went to Israel and Slovakia. Here’s what Reign Ministries says about the Nehemiah Team:
“The Nehemiah team is a special invitational, leadership-development, mission trip for Royal Servants alumni. It is led by Reign Ministries' founder, Louie Inks. It has a three-fold purpose:
- World evangelism
- Help students develop a deeper walk with Christ
- Leadership training”
The 2011 Nehemiah Team will be going to Israel and Italy to minister. What an amazing experience she will have.
During the flooding in India: sopping wet! Smooch is on right
The only “down” side to this trip is that this is Smooch’s senior year. She was going to have her grad party with her BFF and another friend. That is now out of the question. She will have to go down to Training Camp for 3 weeks at the beginning of June.
Her entire summer, 8 weeks, will be spent elsewhere. While everyone else is getting ready to leave home for college, Smooch will be sharing Jesus with others! Is that crazy or what?
Now, we only have to come up with nearly $7000. That’s doable, right? LOL
