Bags piled high. Prayers raised. Doors latched. Heads on pillows. Pulling out of the parking lot at 12:30am, the excitement is still detectable, even through tired eyes. 
Passing orange barrels and bouncing on potholes. As the cities and miles pass, one thing stays the same; a sky so stunning we can't ignore.  I stare at the black canvas glittered with stars. The vast expanse reminds me of how his love and presence covers us, 

Then, ever so slowly the sky lightens. So subtle and slow you barely notice the change is happening. Suddenly the bright blood-red sun breaks through the horizon and ignights the entire sky. Like a gift of joy can transform a season of sorrow. 

“Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.”
Proverbs 8:30-31 NIV

What a beautiful reminder of the consistency of God. We are praying for the powerful love of God to invade our hearts this week as we serve in the city of Joplin. Please pray with us too! 

Safe travels so far. We are nearing the outskirts of St. Louis and just stopped for a breakfast break. Lots of sleeping and miles logged. About 5 more hours to go!
