"(T)he kingdom of the heavens is like a merchant seeking fine pearls. And having found one very precious pearl, having gone away, he has sold all things as many as he had, and bought it." Matthew 13:46 (Berean Literal Bible)

In the nearly fifty years since I was an MK (missionaries' kid), I never particularly thought about going back to an overseas mission field again. But, apparently, God has had both that thought and desire for me.

Two months ago, I was directed to a ministry called Sons of Thunder, who will be taking a 7-day mission trip to Mumbai, India in March 2017. They are an outstanding group of believers committed to showing God's radical and exuberant love to as many as possible, around the world. From their website, "Our vision is merely this: practice the presence of God." To which I can only add, Amen. I applied for the trip, and roughly three weeks ago (God knows why!) I was accepted.

While in Mumbai, activities will include showing God's love in tangible ways at various locations, including: the children's home sponsored by Sons of Thunder; one of the city's garbage dumps (where many strive to make a living by sorting and recycling waste); and at a national pastors' conference. I've also been invited by friends with their own ministry in the southern India province of Tamil Nadu to visit them there.

God will use this time to greatly expand my horizons as to how He can use me, and I really look forward to ministering in an environment where people are far more open to the supernatural than we are in the U.S. But most of all, I pray He will use me to bless those who would not otherwise be blessed.

In the natural, I don't have the financial resources to do this. But, where God directs, God provides both financial and spiritual resources. If you feel led to help me through prayer or finances or both - I thank you, and fully expect God to bless you for it - in perhaps surprising ways. 8^)

Heaven is a most precious pearl. And God gave Heaven's most precious treasure, Jesus, for each one of us. How precious each of us must be to Him.

May boldness and confidence grow. May determination flourish. May Jesus be praised in many places along the routes.

These are specific prayer needs:

God’s guidance in preparing wisely and thoroughly - while placing my trust in Him, first and foremost.

Ongoing peace of mind as I move ahead with these preparations - keeping my focus on Him and not losing my joy. Jesus paid a lot for the peace that He gave me. The very  least I can do is not throw it away. I want to get the most out of this experience that I can get - and give God the best that I can give Him.

I want people to see (and sense) Jesus and His Light and Life more than they see me. I
cannot hide myself under a bushel - as much as I may want to do so. Therefore, I want Him to be seen as much as possible through me.

Spiritual protection. India is a very crowded place, not just physically but spiritually.

Health. I don’t say this in fear, but in wisdom.

Favor in finances, favor in preparations, favor in travel (arrangements, tickets, fares, divine appointments, and travel itself), favor in ministry. God’s favor.

I will be taking the train south from Mumbai to Tirunelveli. I look forward to having divine guidance and favor in choosing the right train, and in divine health and grace while riding the train.
