And so it begins...

Don’t Think It’s Not Spiritual Warfare

Taken directly from my husbands blog - because don't think it isn't important enough to post twice, or three times, or even more.

Our mission team knows when we are doing things right. That is when Satan attacks. Last summer we were all simultaneously bombarded with attacks that really tore us down. If Tuesday is any indication, here we go again.

On Tuesday our eight-person mission team collectively had two cell phones stolen, two car accidents and one other car problem. To put that in perspective our team has had zero cell phones stolen in nearly four years, yet two stolen in the same day. Really?!?!

This, beloved reader of our humble post, is where you come in. It is time for you to pray. We do not again wish to be buffeted by Satan. We appeal to you to pray for us (Romans 15:30), at all times (Ephesians 6:18), for your prayers have power (James 5:16).

Pray we have dependence on God (Proverbs 3:5-6). Pray we give glory to God (Matthew 5:16). Pray we posses a spirit of unity (Romans 15:5). Pray we stand firm (2 Corinthians 4:17). And, pray we are willing to sacrifice even more. (Romans 12:1-2).
