I was going to put these on the "Your Weather" thread, but the post got waaaay too long...feel free to add yours, too! (and praises!)
MOH is leaving for a month in Uganda on June 12th...morning after the wedding. Praying for her sanity leading up to the trip, that she doesn't have any bad side effects from the anti-malaria drugs and other vaccines she needs, and safety for the team. From what she said, I think it's more medical/humanitarian focused than mission trip. She goes to a large, public university...not sure if the trip is through the school or a campus ministry.
Now that FI is the youth pastor, he'll be leading the youth mission trip...to Haiti...May 30-June 8th. My mom is going nuts over this. We're praying for a safe trip, health before, during, and after the trip, and on-time flights all the way back. It's most likely that FI will fly from Haiti to DC and not stop in KS on the way back,. He'll stay with his parents on the 9th to just sleep and try to recover before making the trip to VA for rehearsal and the wedding. Seriously praying for good health and on-time flights.
One of my BM's dad was recently released from the hospital. He has an ongoing illness, and now the doctors are saying he needs a pacemaker. He is still a full-time pastor in Texas, and doesn't know the definition of "take it easy." We're praying he will be able to recover from this recent setback quickly, and it would be amazing if he recovered well enough to not need the pacemaker. If he does need it, I pray for him, my friend, her sister, and her mom. I also pray that a decision is made about this before she buys a plane ticket (or dress, for that matter) for the wedding. If she needs to stay, then she needs to stay, but I would hate for her to spend money on those and then not be able to come.
