Join us in praying for our Haiti medical team, leaving on November 8th. The medical team needs prayers as they will see around 300 people in 3 days. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel and build lasting relationships between the community and the local church. Pray also for our team that is headed to Thailand on the 8th as well. This team will be meeting and encouraging our missionaries, Becca and Brendan Miller, and exploring new ministry areas! Pray for wisdom as they spend 11 days in Chiang Mai and Mae Sot.
