24/7 Prayer Vigil

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted! I've been very busy getting prepared to move. We leave for Olomouc, Czech Republic, from the airport here in Little Rock on October 28th! It's less than six weeks away!

I've just expanded the the prayer support section of our mission team's website and now you can sign up to be a part of our 24/7 prayer vigil. We hope to raise enough prayer support to have someone praying for the team and the Czech people sometime during every hour of everyday for the next ten years. By signing up you're committing to pray weekly sometime during the hour you select. But, of course, in addition to that hour you're welcome to pray for us anytime!

Our idea for the vigil was inspired by the Moravian Church (Moravia makes up the eastern half of the CR), which in the 1700s set up a prayer chain that lasted 100 years uninterrupted! Amazingly, during the first fifty years, they sent out 226 missionaries from their little community in Hernnhut! Please go here to read more about them and to sign up. Thanks!
