Dear Friends of the Mordecai Project:
The apostle Paul thanked the Philippians for their “partnership in the gospel” (Phil. 1:5-7). He was very aware that he was not a lone ranger in the work of ministry. He was part of a team! Paul could not do what he did without others. He told those who prayed for him: “It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me.”
I want to thank you for sharing in this grace! I need you more than ever to help us accomplish this gospel mission.
When you get this email, Deborah and I will be heading to the Atlanta airport to begin a long journey to the Middle East. Normally I give you a lot of information about my trips but in this case I really need to be more discreet in what I share, for security reasons.
Deborah and I have been friends with Eddie and Beth Taylor for many years. Currently they are pastors at Church on the Hill in Dalton, Georgia, but they have been friends and supporters of The Mordecai Project for a long time. They have also hosted Bold Venture events in their church and spoken at our Bold Venture retreats often.
This week we will be traveling with Eddie and Beth to the Middle East to conduct two conferences. One is for women, and the other will have both men and women in attendance. In between the two events we will get to enjoy a 3-day tour in Israel, seeing some Bible sites and connecting with God in the land where Jesus walked.
Our host is Chrissie Shaheen, who once attended the Taylors’ church but who now lives in the Middle East and ministers there. She has worked tirelessly to prepare the way for us to minister in these venues.
I would like to ask that you pray for the following:
** Pray for protection, safe travel, health and strength for the entire team.
** Pray that people will be saved, filled with the Spirit and healed from the effects of abuse. Many women in the Middle East region have suffered untold abuse and marginalization.
** Pray that what we do there will reverberate for a long time—that the people who are impacted will then minister to others. We want to see a move of the Holy Spirit in this region!
** Please pray for Lee’s mom, Jean, while we are away. Lee’s sister is coming to stay in our home part of the time we are gone so that she can check on her. Jean’s blood pressure has been unstable lately, making her feel weak.
I am also excited to announce that, after many delays, we broke ground on November 1st for our new girls’ home in India. Please pray for the process of construction to go smoothly, with no outside interference.
