Sarah talked with Hannah last night on the phone before they depart for Venezuela today. Sarah said she was doing well and enjoyed her awestar team. The following is an update from Kenny and Whitney, the country coordinators of the Venezuela team! Keep praying!
Check out http://www.awestar.org–what a great organization to send yourself or your students with to share the Gospel. You can also find pictures of the Venezuela team as well as updates from the Peru and Cambodia team.
Our day started with a great time of worship, as several worship leaders joined together to lead us to the throne. It gave us energy to face a whole day of drama training. Thank you for your prayers, as the weather for training was great! We finished training the drama before lunch, and afterwards we performed it over and over again, tweaking and perfecting their parts. We are so proud of our students; they began the afternoon knowing the whole drama, and as we challenged them to make bigger motions and expressions, they rose to the task without complaining. We culminated the afternoon with a dress rehearsal, each of the three teams performing for the others. It is exciting to see how far we have come in only a few days.
This evening Brent brought the teaching, and many students were moved to surrender themselves fully to the Lord for the task at hand. It is a beautiful thing to watch the Lord work! We ended our evening with a time of commissioning where each team took time to pray over the other teams.
Tomorrow afternoon we will begin our journey to Venezuela. We will land in Caracas very late tomorrow night/early Friday morning, and then we will embark on a lengthy bus ride to the city where we will begin ministry. Please pray for safe travel as we go and for planes to depart and land on time. Please pray that the students will not lose the focus they have gained in the past couple days. Thank you so much for praying for us!
Your Country Coordinators,
Kenny & Whitney
