I am sitting here in the middle of May... opening my life planner to make some notes only to realize I AM NOT SUPPOSE TO BE HERE.
I should not be writing this blog.
I should not be sitting in my apartment.
I should not in in the city, state, country that I am currently.
My heart breaks, and the tears follow, every time I open a calendar that I had placed my dream mission trip to Africa on (two different team Google Cals, a few personal Google Cals, and three paper calendars- YES I have a calendar problem).
I have written about this heart break, as I know many people have had heart break moments during the #CovidChronicles but today I come to you as a plea for prayer for my friends in Africa and beyond.
Pray for Joey and his team in Ghana. They currently do not have cases in the village but the do not necessarily have the means to handle an outbreak. Joey is suppose to be returning stateside for his daughters wedding the first week in June and we are unsure of that status.
Pray for Pastor Samwel and the Obwanchani Children's Home. They are in an area where they are on complete lock down, yet the support systems in place are not helping-- so there is no means to get food.
Pray for Summer Camps. Many of these camps host weekend retreats through out the spring semester and have missed out on that income, and are now looking at abridged summer scheduling, if at all.
Pray for graduates: preschool, elementary, middle, high schools; college- both undergrad and grad. These students are transitioning to a new piece of life in the next school year and whether or not they are getting their right of passage graduation - deserve our prayers.
If you are at the store buying a card for a graduate in your life, would you consider blessing a graduate in your counties foster care system.
For Cobb County, Ignite Hope is collecting for 18 seniors and cards and gift cards can be sent to:
1635 Old Hwy., NW
Kennesaw, GA 30152
Weirdly I am thankful for the BRIGHT ORANGE ( thats what Color I assigned to my Africa trip) reminders because it helps remind me that we are #allinthistogether ( and then I bust out into High School Musical dance and song). Please let us know how we can specifically be praying for you during this #CovidChornicles time.
