Prayers Please

In just 3 days James will be heading around the world to Uganda. He was there last summer for 3 weeks for work and is going back now for even longer...4 weeks.

He will be greatly missed in our home. He is the head of our house and supports us all in so many ways. It will be a challenge to have the VISIBLE source of strength far away. We'll chat and email but it won't be the same. I try not to complain to much. I try to be strong. I remind myself constantly of those wives who go without their husbands for 9-18months when serving in military all over the world. One month is nothing compared to that. But it is hard nonetheless.

I would appreciate your prayers and so would the children.

Please pray for safe travels and health while in Uganda for James as well.

Thank you so much.

Absolutely! Lord have Mercy, Lord have Mercy, Lord have Mercy. He will be in my daily prayers for safe travels, and you will be as well.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Job had to travel for business twice this past year... not fun. I hope James has safe travels, and I hope that you get to enjoy the company of friends and family while you await his return.
