Sending jovens across the world

This email just in:

The kids are in Johannesburg and headed to bed. They leave early in the morning their time - 11:40 p.m. tonight (Wednesday) our time for Maputo, with a layover and then on to Quelimane. All are well!

Thanks for your prayers

In Mozambique, they speak Portugese. In Portugese, joven means youth.

Our church sent a mission team of 6 high school and college students off for a trip to Mozambique, Africa on Tuesday morning. It is a long, exhausting trip. Now they are in South Africa, sleeping. Tonight they head out on a smaller plane to Maputo, where the airport is full of scammers waiting to exploit anyone who will trust them and baggage handlers who will do the same! Pray that they will make it through to Quilemane safely and with all their luggage and things they are taking to the missionary family there. One of the big prayer needs of any foreign mission trip is safe traveling.

Once they get to Quilemane, Mozambique, they will be teaching the True Love Waits abstinence program and also doing sports evangelism for 2 1/2 weeks. I will give more reports later and let you in on their mission trip blog. Please pray!
