“40 x 40″…as I celebrate my 40th birthday tomorrow, I would like to request that some of you (hopefully 40) might consider donation $40 towards the Honduras Mission taking place over Spring Break. I was doing the math tonight and realized that if 40 of my friends donated $40, then I would be OVER halfway towards my goal. Would you consider joining the mission challenge?
I will be co-leading this trip with our youth pastor Matt and am very thankful for how God has opened up this opportunity. Prior to this past summer, I had not been on a mission trip in quite a while. I really can’t explain what a blessing it was to be a part of that trip. I went on the trip for a few reasons. One reason was that I have been wanting to plug in and serve with my ‘home church’, Irving Bible Church. Secondly, I was really excited to go and serve alongside a mission that seemed to have the same heartbeat as IBC for the Lord and for taking care of His people. Thirdly, it was a very unique opportunity to partner with such a great group of people of ages, stages, backgrounds and gifts. Last but not least, God said “yes”. :) What I did not expect to happen was to have the desire to go back, as many of you know I have scattered my life and heart in a variety of places most deeply and widely in Guatemala. However, God had other plans and I am thankful.
I am looking forward to a great 40th year of life! Time with fam in December, my first cruise to celebrate what would have been Jenn’s 40th birthday in February, Honduras in March and the my mom’s retirement somewhere between there and summer! And those are just the things that are already on the books!
I can’t wait to fill you in on more of what is to come as we begin forming this intergenerational team and prepare to head back to Honduras. Attached is a little glimpse of my last trip. :)

” For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:14-20
