Update on Philippines Trip

I wanted to update you on Kolton's trip to the Philippines next week!
His passport came last week, and the tickets are booked!
The team will fly out early next Wednesday, May 22, the day after school is out.
We praise the Lord for what He has done and is doing.  
If you wish to give to Kolton's trip expenses, you may still use the Paypal Donate button on the side bar.  
*Prayer Requests*
1) Kolton's shoulder is better but still not healed.
2) The team: Trevor, Brad, Kolton, Zach

Something so awesome happened last Sunday that I couldn't wait to share it!

Our 2nd oldest krew member, Kolton Tee, was prompted by the Holy Spirit to join a missions team to the Philippines.
Kolton is a hard worker, but he's never expressed a desire to go on missions before.  We've also invited him twice to travel to China with us, and he's declined both times.

But last Sunday he responded with 'Yes!'
Because the team leaves in less than four weeks, we are expediting his passport and scrambling to raise the necessary funds.

Believe me when I say the enemy will try all kinds of schemes to stop him.  Yesterday Kolton's relay team placed 2nd in the meet, but Kolton lunged across the finish line, then fell and injured his shoulder.  X-ray reveals it's not broken, but sprained.  At this point he can't move his arm, so will you please join us in praying for immediate and complete healing?
We are so excited about what the Lord is going to do through this team, and so thankful that He calls young people to life-changing opportunities.  Thank you for praying!!!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
            I am excited to announce that I will be involved in a great mission opportunity in the Philippines. We will kick off our trip on Monday, May 20th and return Saturday, June 1st.  While in the Philippines we will be pouring concrete and laying the tile floor of a church we have helped fund.
            I am asking the Body of Christ to pray for safety, guidance, provision, and most of all that God would be glorified. The Holy Spirit prompted me to join this team on April 20th, thereby leaving only four weeks to gather the necessary resources. I can’t wait to be the hands and feet of Christ while in the Philippines!
            If the Lord leads you to contribute to my financial need of 3,000 dollars you may give to:
Ringwood First Baptist Church
PO Box 133
Ringwood, OK
*in the memo of your check simply write Philippine Mission Trip*
            I am grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord and our Philippine brothers and sisters and expect it to be a life changing experience. Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated.
            In Him,

            Kolton T. Johnson

Praying for Kolton! Where in the PI is he going? I used to live there before Shawn and I were married as a missionary:) We have been back several times, in fact we are heading to meet friends back on home assignment from the PI next weekend!
I'd love to hear more about what they will be doing!

How exciting! 4 of our older kids have been very involved in missions, traveling all over the world.

Just gotta share . . . the Lord shone His light of HOPE upon us this weekend, as we had a HUGE breakthrough with our Little Miss. Hope you will pop over to my blog and read about it, and hope it brings you hope for your parenting challenges.
