Today is that day in the year when I always feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the generous and faithful prayer support of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)–the day my name is one of the handful listed in the Mission Yearbook for Prayer & Study. This morning I received a handful of emails from dear friends and also people I’ve never met, who saw my name and not only said a prayer but took the time to write me a note. And I know for each of these there are hundreds of others who have prayed for me today. It’s a humbling and uplifting feeling!
As a Regional Liaison, I’m listed together with my amazing colleagues in the Latin America & Caribbean area–Jo Ella Holman, Tracey King-Ortega, and Dennis Smith–on the first day of the weeks the Yearbook spends on God’s mission in this part of the world. We’ll be exploring Presbyterian mission work from Mexico to Argentina now through February 6.
I invite you to take a moment to read the introduction Dennis wrote in today’s entry, continued on the entry for Monday. I’ll be posting the entries for my region here on the days they are listed, but I encourage you to read and learn and pray along with us throughout all the days for our area and on through the year! If you don’t have a hard copy of the Mission Yearbook on hand, you can still order one, or subscribe to receive the daily entries by email. Thank you for your prayers!
