Pray for China

Currently, China is experiencing riots and flooding both in various parts of the country. The flooding is very near where we'll be staying, so please, lift up our team even before we leave. We know God is in control and this was not a surprise to Him even if it is a surprise to us. He is the God of all creation! He can calm storms and quiet seas at the mere command of His voice. Pray that the Chinese people will look to Him during this time of unrest and confusion.

Proverbs3:4-6 tells us "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."
I choose to trust Christ even though circumstances around going to China seem scary. With all the quarantines, the riots, the flooding...if I look with my fleshly eyes, I don't want to go because of the possible danger...but I choose to look through my spiritual eyes and trust that everything is under control and everything is going according to God's perfect plan. He is all knowing and I am not. I am only to be obedient to His call for me to go to China. I only have a small glimpse of what lies ahead, but I know He's there ahead of us even now.
