(Written Monday and posted Tuesday am)
If this blog was about our trip journey it would read let the journey continue, but today I am writing specifically about our Journey groups. We are leaving our hotel shortly to head to a retreat center. We are told we had a soft landing in in China with our nice hotel and this will be more traditional Chinese accomadations. Not for sure what that will entail, but am grateful for varied experiences. I am not sure if there will be internet, so if you do not hear from me for a few days, I will post all my daily blogs upon my return…..
Today (Monday) we will meet our Journey Group participants. They are all locals and counselors/pastors and are eager to come and take some time to look at their own stories. I believe it will be a time of great connection and understanding for all of us. They are all women (and one man) of faith.
I am hopeful that the time will move slowly so at the end of the week we will be able to say that we have journeyed back, visited important moments in our childhood stories and have gained insight into the greater plan that God has for each of us today.
I am hopefula and I have a great dependence on God for this week….
I am passionate about people’s stories and I am thankful for those who have been passionate about mine…
Please pray that our group will be a safe place for the women who come to participate…
Please pray for an experience of God’s full design of our emotion…(laughter, tears, sorrow, anger, injustice, delight, celebration and so much more)
Please pray for good health, good rest, good nutrition and good exercise.
Please pray that we would stand untied for life and freedom!
Thank you my friends for hoping and praying with me!
