1. Boy howdy, does the King household have a LOT of work to do. We have a to-do list over three pages long (no exxageration) that was given to us by the realtor. One of those pages needs to be done by Tuesday. Yikes!
So, what I am praying for is FOCUS! It is so easy to be distracted by all the things that do NOT need to be done (like the new episode of Psych, or those chocolate chips that are calling out to be made into cookies).
We also need endurance. I am one of those super-strong starters that gets easily bored. I don't have time to get bored. I have to start strong and finish strong. (I am speaking as Becka. Dustan will be attending his regular job and most of the prep work will fall on me. Besides, he is one of those very steady runners.)
2. Tomorrow afternoon we meet with a minister at First Baptist of O'Fallon to share our story and to explore ways that we can connect our ministry with that church. Please pray for our meeting- that it will go well, and that we will be able to share our passion for taking the gospel to Ecuador with the people of that congregation. Pray that the Holy Spirit will guide our words and that we will speak with sincerity and with boldness.
3. Please pray for our health as we enter a heightened flu season. We need to stay healthy because of that ginormous to-do list.
Also, those of you reader/prayers who are in our vicinity, we could use some help moving furniture, painting, doing yard work, etc. If you are up with spending a few hours helping us out, let us know. We will gladly put you to work helping kncok out that list!
