Tijuana Step Up To Life Ministry Trip, November 1-8
One reason Sheryl will be able to make this trip with me, is that she’s transitioning from the CFCI International Office to the position of CFCI Omaha Ministry Base Planter/Director. We’re very excited about this, as it allows her to move more fully into her gifts and calling. In addition, it frees me to focus more around my calling to coach ministry leaders and to oversee the growing Prayer Mobilization here in Omaha (We had another remarkable prayerwalk at a homicide site last night where God answered prayer within minutes…please go to http://prayerwalkingtheheartland.blogspot.com for an exciting update with pictures). However, this ministry change is also a big faith challenge for us, since at the beginning of each month until the end of the year, she transitions one more day a week to the Base, and loses 20% of her paycheck at the International Office.
Step Up To Life has committed to provide training and materials for Tijuana and has generously assisted with my travel and administrative expenses for this nine month outreach, but we’ll need to raise an additional $1000.00 to meet the rest of the expenses for this trip.
We need lots of prayer during this trip, and you can travel with us online! Just reply to this email, and we’ll update you every day or two during our trip. We also have a new personal ministry blog you may subscribe to at http://gehrlsministry.blogspot.com that will be kept updated from TJ. During the last two trips, we have received wonderfully encouraging words and scriptures…several that were exactly what we needed in ministry the next day. Please join us on this trip through prayer and by considering a financial partnership.
We’d love to have you be a part of what God is doing in Tijuana!
Blessings, Dave & Sheryl
