Preparing for 2011 Trip

Hi all! The mission team leaves on Saturday the 12th for our third annual trip to Honduras. Here are a few pictures we took while packing (thank you for your donations!!!). There are 18 of us traveling (10 from Northlake). To give you an idea of what we are doing this year, we are taking medical supplies, bibles, shoes, diapers, underwear, t-shirts, and the supplies for VBS. We are buying sheets and mattresses for Casitas Adolescentes (the home for older girls) and have wired money for formula for Nueva Esperanza (the orphanage for boys and girls) and cleaning supplies for all three facilities (Nueva Esperanza, Casitas Adolescentes, and the transitional home). Please pray for the following Northlake members who are going on the trip:

John, Tracy, and Chris Carl
Bill and Deron Swinney
Dawn and Lexie Ford
Theresa Pursel
Jennifer Idley
Melody Priest

Your prayers are appreciated for safe travel as well as for patience and strength to honor the Lord through all we accomplish next week. And of course please pray for each child we will be ministering to, that their needs will be met and that they will see that God cares for every one of them. More updates to come!
