We’re setting up barriers between the those God’s heart is breaking for and the enemy that is literally hell-bent on destroying them.
I explained to my best friend last week that I’ll probably proclaim I’m not going no less than 20 more times between now and stepping on the plane. It’s a great encouragement when she knows how I feel from her own mission experiences.
So, when I say I covet your prayers….please know I really do.
