Life is never dull. Lately with all the preparation for our upcoming Belarus trip I have found myself so busy with all of the hustle and bustle that it takes to take a group of people to a new country. Check out our blog for Belarus at the link below. God is working. One of our precious Mom's from the Falls gave birth to a precious baby girl. She was born with a congenital heart defect. Praise the Lord, she underwent a successful surgery at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and is now home with her family!! Mark and I have been praying for God's direction in regards to mission work here in Atlanta. We have interviewed with a few mission agencies and I can definitely say that God has led both of us to cross one of them off of our list. There are so many ministry/mission opportunities which we could become involved in but I believe that God has the perfect spot for us where we can serve.

Yesterday Mark and I had the opportunity to be included in the SEND North America Celebration and Call to Prayer. We had a great time hearing from Pastors and New Church Planters as they shared the need for evangelism in North America and specifically in Atlanta. Atlanta, Georgia, my hometown and the city of my birth, is an UNREACHED city. 70% of the population in suburban Atlanta are unchurched and 92% of the population inside of I-285 are unchurched. Staggering statistics in the "Bible Belt." Atlanta is now one of the cities in our country with the greatest amount of lost people- people who do not profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! Please pray for Our City of Atlanta, Ga and for church planters, pastors, and missionaries as we work in this city to tell others about Jesus.
The last few weeks Mark and I have been very busy as we begin prepping our team for Belarus. I spent endless hours putting together a resource book for all of our team members. It consists of pages on packing to pages of prayer walking and evangelism. Getting excited for this opportunity in July to Be His Heart, His Hands, and His Voice!
