Theme Verse

"And Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, encouraged and strengthened the brothers with many words. "  Acts 15:32

This is the verse that we are using to help guide us on our time with the ReachGlobal team in Toulouse, France and then our friends at Black Forest Academy in Kandern, Germany.  Tomorrow and for the next two days Glen will be teaching and presenting some leadership concepts for the Toulouse team. 

The goal is that those words that are shared will greatly encourage the international missionary team to persevere as they do their work in a place that is often resistant to the Gospel.  The goal is also that those words Glen shares and the love we show will help to strengthen every person in attendence so they leave the retreat energizes and spiritually strong for the battle that exists when you do missionary work.

Rachel will continue to communicate with you on the blog.  She will also take doodlenotes during the speaking to give the team some creative visuals to look back on and remind them of what God brought us from the other side of the Atlantic to share with them.

Prayer Requests:
1. Please pray that God would use his Word as Glen preaches from it to provide strength and encouragement for the team.
2. Please pray that we build some strong relationships with the missionaries that make them feel loved and cared for.
3. Continue to pray for good health for us as we adapt to the culture and time change.

Thanks so much for your support!

Glen and Rachel
