So I'm back in my home church in Cardiff, Wales, very busy but missing life on the road with the band!
I'm writing to ask you to pray!
Jamie Beals, dedicated Third Day fan, leaves for India next week to visit the Come Together compound near Rajahmundry. Traveling with a team from my church in the UK, Jamie will be on her second mission trip to see the work of Gateway MInistries, and will be acting as an ambassador for the band and for fans, especially those who have invested in the school over the last few years by buying a piece of artwork in our tour VIP receptions.
We strongly believe in accountability for all the money we donate overseas, and Jamie will be bringing back plenty of stories and pictures to confirm that our giving to the Gateway School and to the Gateway Children's Home has been a solid Kingdom investment!
On her previous trip Jamie was particularly impacted by our work amongst the leprosy community and was able to preach a message of hope to them in a church service. Please pray for Jamie's safe travel, her time at the school and with the team, and pray for her husband Kevin back at home. We thank the Lord for both of them...they represent many of you who have stood alongside us as we have served Jesus by serving the children of those remote Indian villages through constructing a school and offering them a good education.
