Central Asia Team Leader Kim sends us a note:

Posted by Natalie Uecker on with 10 Comments

Dear Calvary Prayer Partners and Central Asia Team Families,

 I wanted to share a note I received from Kim Velting as he has taken a little time out of their busy schedule to give us an update:

“It feels like we have been here for a week already. There is still a little jet lag, but the energy level is improving.

So much going on! We met today to plan the camping it was amazing. The level of thought and prayer that they have invested and the personal buy-in from their leaders is very encouraging. We have a few details in the teachings to work out yet, but everything else is pretty well set. 

We are so amazed at how God has answered the prayers of His people so far on this trip. We are all looking forward to see His working continue.”

  I hope Kim's note encourages you to keep praying for this team and the people they engage with throughout their mission trip.

  In Christ,

Praying that all of the plans for the retreat are in place and you are all able to get good rest to begin tomorrow. Praying that as you teach, worship and share, God speaks through all of you. Praying that as you serve you will be filled with the Holy Spirit. Praising God for all that He is blessing you with. ❤️ Kim/mom

Praying that the retreat was excellent. Praying you still have energy and strength and are not growing too tired. Many people have called or texted me telling me they are praying for your team. We had small group tonight and we all prayed for you. We all miss you. Kelton missed you extra today. Praying that God is moving, providing, protecting you and filling you with strength and love. God Bless You Keegan! I love you kiddo!

Good Morning! Happy Sunday! As I pray for all of you before I go to bed I see hearts full of God's love, praising Him in church this morning for an amazing week. I pray you are all able to have a day of rest and quiet time with the Lord so that you are ready to begin a long, tiring yet fantastic week of serving the Lord at camp. Praying for soft hearts for the campers and lots of good health and energy for all of you. Praying God equips you and gives you everything you need and blesses you all abundantly. love and
