    I started to write the blog last night about Day 1 ending but crashed and slept until about 2 hours ago so forgive me for not writing.  I have tried to upload pictures onto the blog and right now it doesn't seem to be working, so please check out the Facebook album. 
     Yesterday was a good day, although the team was exhausted.  We spent time sharing a Lebanese meal together and then came back where we are staying for some orientation and a meeting with one of the Pastor's of the churches where both Skip and Steve will be preaching at towards the end of the week.  Then we changed plans and the team went up to a high point to overlook the valley and pray for the people of this region, the contacts for this week and the Work that is happening.  During our time together when we returned, the team shared how the hearts of the workers here and then praying together and for the area were the highlight of the day.  It is always great when God's people come together with one heart, one direction, and one goal to pray unto the Lord.  Pretty good day.
      Today, or right now the team is still asleep, they needed their sleep.  We will begin here in about 3 hours.  The day will be a busy day, with meetings, ESL, a couple of home visits, a time of interaction in the city and then tonight Skip will be speaking at the English Speaking Church and Gavin will be playing music.  It is a very exciting time. 
      God has led me to share each morning during our devotion about strength.  This is how we start our day in devotion and prayer.  So I thought I would share with you our verse so that as you could pray for us as we begin our day and you end your day. 

Colossians 1:10-12
New International Version (NIV)
10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[a] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

Please continue to hold the group up in prayers and thank you for standing beside us on this WONDERFUL ADVENTURE.
