October update and Prayer Requests

Welcome to Fall! It has been another busy month for us and at Agape is a little update of what we have been up to....

This month has been a month of planning picnics. Along with all his regular duties, this month, Lance was given the duty of coordinating picnics at our field locations. As part of our 30th year anniversary, Agape is planning picnics for Eleuthera, Bahamas; Ley Cayes, Haiti; Port au Prince, Haiti; Santiago and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The planning of these picnics is no easy feat. It requires great attention to detail and planning on how to best serve the missionaries.

Lance has been working hard to coordinate air transport for Agape personnel, transportation of food and supplies, and to secure housing and ground transportation when traveling to each location. The first picnic was held at the end of September in Eleuthera, Bahamas. Lance and 3 others traveled to the Bahamas to host the party. They spent two days in Eleuthera setting up the picnic, hosting the party, entertaining the missionaries and then traveling to see the missionary’s projects. It was very exciting to see how they operate and the different ways they are touching lives for Christ. Each missionary told us of the great service Agape Flights is for them and how we impact them on a weekly basis as well. Our intention of the trip was to touch their lives and renew them for another year of serving the Lord, and as most trips go, we ended up being very touched and changed by meeting them.

We are looking forward to the next picnic in Ley Cayes, Haiti in the beginning of October. Please pray for the safety of the trip and the time to be glorifying to God by all who attend. The rest of the picnics are scheduled for early 2011, once the holiday season is past.

Praises and Prayer Requests

Praise the Lord for His hands which directs our ways and our plans. With the leading of the Lord, we made it to Green Bay in time to spend the last two days of Mom’s life by her side. God made the plans and we simply listened to Him. Thank you, Lord, for that precious time.

Praise God for a successful trip to Bahamas for Lance and the team. It was a great time of fellowship and worship. All who attended were blessed by the time spent together.

Please pray for Lynn’s family as we step forward without Mom. We miss her deeply but God is filling our hearts with memories of her and filling the voids with love from Him.

Praise the Father for new field representatives in Santiago, who wil be arriving in the country shortly to help with and navigate the customs issues. The Darnell's joined our staff at Agape and will be serving in Santiago.

Please continue to pray for the resolve of the customs issues in Santiago. We pray that with the Darnell’s leadership and God’s favor the mail/package service to Santiago will be greatly improved.

Please pray for the staff at Agape to tune their ears to God’s voice. We each need prayer to stay in tune with what God is asking each person to do and not to move without His direction. Sometimes, as humans, we all get caught up in wanting to find the “quick” answer. We pray that we will only listen to God’s answer.

We greatly appreciate all of your support and prayers. Please drop us a line and let us now how we can be praying for you.
Living victoriously in Christ, Lynn for the Anderson ministry team

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
