Edmonton International Airport

Today's photo comes from Edmonton Internation Airport.  It's a photo of my plane, or lack there of.  You might say I'm a little early....only two hours early.  Might be a sign of how excited I am to go on this trip.  Excited to leave the cold, (-13 this morning), excited to go to the DR, excited to meet some new people, but most of all excited to do the Lord's Work.  I apologize to all who are reading this blog as I keep refering to myself but I haven't even met any of the other guys yet, I'm sure this blog will become more of a team blog and less of a me blog as the week goes on.

As I left my family behind this morning I want to encourage everyone praying out there to remember our families in prayer.  I'm sure everyone's wives, children, moms and dads are just as concerned as mine are.  I could see the concern in there eyes as I left them with a word of encouragement,  "Leave it to God....when has He ever let us down before?"  I know God is with us on this trip.  

One final thought, Zepheniah 3:12 reminded me this morning of how important it is to remain meek and humble.  I believe God is reminding us that as we venture into this new culture, to embrace it and learn from it.  Don't go into it with a "western culture attitude," which is full of pride, but remain humble.  Humbled by the fact that He would even choose us to do his work. Lord I pray that somehow through this experience You will teach us true meekness and humilty.
