Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!” --Matthew 8:23-27Track Tropical Storm Chantal here.
Our Friend Chantal
Well, I love when God prompts us in how to pray before we know why. Looks like a tropical storm may affect the departure of some of the team in Haiti. As I wrote yesterday, the unexpexted usually occurs during any given mission trip. So we will pray. Let's pray for that they can depart Haiti and arrive in the US safely. Also, for any interactions that will take place during this time, that the love of Christ will show through our team when it otherwise might not be shown to airline workers, or Haitians they might encounter while remaining in Haiti. Pray that our team is a shining light during their last couple of days and that they leave no loose ends. God is bigger than any storm.
