We leave in 48 hours!

"I appeal to you brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with us in your prayers on our behalf."
Romans 15:30

We are leaving Big Rapids is just about 48 hours.  A week from right now, we will be in the middle of housing dedications and there will be four new houses in Juarez!

That seems so crazy to me. We've been planning, preparing and praying for this trip for almost a year now and here it is.

We're in the last stages of packing, preparing and planning for the trip, but wanted to update you with the students and staff who will be representing His House across the country and into Juarez next week.  Please be praying for all of us as we serve.  Specific prayer requests would be for safety as we drive, good attitudes, safety on the work site and opportunities to be God's hands and feet not just in Juarez, but in every state, city and Walmart we visit.

In total, there will be 56 of us traveling 3,400 miles over the next 10 days to build the four houses in Juarez.  Any student whose name is italicized will be on their first trip to Juarez with His House!

Please be praying for us as we finish preparing and begin our travels.  Many of our students are stressed out with midterms and semester projects, while the staff are quickly going gray getting all of the details in place for us to leave.

Thank you for your prayers, your incredible support and your encouragement.  We could not do this without all of you!
