Day one was awesome! We made the drive in almost exactly thirteen hours which went by faster than you’d think. Even though the vast majority of the day was spent in the car God really used it. He did a great work of uniting our group and blessed us with some great encouraging spiritual conversations. Maybe the most exciting moment of the day was seeing the mountains for the first time. They are an incredibly beautiful reminder of the awesome creative power of our God.
When we finally got to Boulder (6 o’clock Mountain Time) we met up with the family that’s letting us stay with them. He gave us some ridiculously good barbecue then we got to help him clean up shop and get all the barbecue stuff loaded onto his truck. It wasn’t much at all but it was great to get even a small chance to serve someone who’s such huge blessing to us. They are wonderful hosts and we are so thankful for them it’s so different from the welcome we would’ve received staying in a hostel since we’re with believers who are on mission in their community.
It’s really great to be back in Boulder! William Carey famously said “attempt great things for God and you can expect great things from God.” That is one of my big prayers for this trip, that God would use this short week to do a mighty work for His kingdom and use us to bless The Well. We’re all really excited about worshipping with them tomorrow as we celebrate a special baptism service. When you pray for us please thank God for bringing us here safely and bringing us together as a team. Also pray that we would be Philippians 2 servants and last but certainly not least pray Ephesians 6:19-20 for us, that words may be given to us in opening our mouths boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which we are ambassadors, that we may declare it boldly, as we ought to speak.
