|The send-off at church yesterday (sorry it's a bad photo!)|
The purpose of this post is to give you a rough guide that my church (Harvest Community) published for the congregation to use when praying. If you're supporting me and my team in prayer, I hope you find this helpful in providing you with more specifics. Thank you again for your wonderful prayer and support! Soli Deo Gloria! His Kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven - in Boma!
