Weekly Prayer Focus: Trammell Creek

Please be in prayer for Trammell Creek this weekend & next week. They are sending a team of 14 volunteers to work alongside us in ministering to the Songhai! This is by far the largest team that Mark & I have ever hosted. We are so excited as the leaders of the team are old college friends from Campbellsville University & they are bringing 12 of their high school & college aged students. If anyone knows Mark & I well, they know that we have a huge heart for students!

The team will arrive in the wee hours of the morning & then we will hit the ground running with orientation. The next 7 days will be devoted to painting a school & clinic in Tagabati as well as doing evangelism in the village using the C2C story.

We are excited about making entry into Tagabati with this team & doing a "goodwill" project, if you will. Many, many, many Songhai have yet to hear the Gospel in Tagabati & have never heard the name of Jesus before. Please pray that not only the students would be bold in their witness but that God would draw the Songhai of Tagabati to Himself & they would respond to the Truth of His Word. Pray that His sheep would hear His voice!

Pray for the students' health & safety as they will be working & walking long hours in the sun with few places to rest in the shade. Pray for them as they travel long hours to get here & that there would be no "surprises" along the way. Pray for the people of Tagabati to be open & receptive to the students & the Message. Pray that they would not see their white skin & think only of what kinds of gifts they can receive but they would truly be interested in hearing of the salvation they can only find in Jesus!

  1. My son is on the mission team from Trammell Creek. Could you verify for me that the team arrived safely? We have not received any type of communication since early yesterday morning when they were leaving New York. Thanks so much, E. Todd Young
