Hope sent a team off to Sudan again today.
Dave and John Jefferson this time.
We raised over $25,000 last year and didn't spend it all when the team went in September.
So basically they are going back to spend the rest.
Every last penny.
On food for people in and around the border region who are starving.
But also to bring them the Bread of Life.
To share Jesus.
Our only true Hope.
In a world that continues to fall short.
We've set up a 24-hour prayer chain and it brings great comfort to know that the trip will be prayed for around the clock.
If you're part of this prayer chain or interested in praying, here are some initial requests:
* Health and Safety
* Endurance and Hydration (outside temps average 110 degrees)
* Wisdom and Favor over the Logistics of the food purchase and delivery
For more information, you can read the Hope 4 Sudan blog here.
You can also follow @Hope4Sudan on Instagram, @Hope4sudanblog on Twitter and/or "like" Hope, San Mateo on Facebook for updates and prayer requests throughout the trip.
I'm so thankful for a church family who loves people like Jesus does.
For a husband and pastor who loves people the way he tells other people to.
And for the body of Christ who loves our family as we stay behind.
