Here we are in Hong Kong. One thing about Global reach trips there is a lot of hurry up and wait. We rush to this gate rush to that gate then we get to other airports and just set and wait. It gives you time to think and just mentally and spiritually prepare.
As i set here waiting to find out which gate we will be leaving from I think about all the preparation that has gone into this trip. The prep and organization and relationship connections that make what we are doing possible. It takes lots of communication, fund raising, and planning to make it successful.
Everyone loves the actual event. The action that is taken, the outreach, and the service, but none of these things can even happen if someone doesn’t love the preparation. There are seasons in our lives that are purely preparation times. I encourage you not to rush through, avoid, or ignore these times. Rather pay very close attention because the results will be profound personally, and collectively. Purpose is only fulfilled through preparation. there is no other way. So thanks Autumn, and Adrienne, Andrew and Allison, Travis, Nathan, Terry, Amy, Taylor, Tiffany, Kelly, Darci, and Kelsi for loving the preparation. We have raised money, we have trained, we have now traveled and tomorrow, we will use our preparation and impact someone’s life.
Stay tuned for updates and thoughts from Cambodia.
Autumn is a great volunteer at harvest. She is involved in all kinds of ministry opportunities to help people. She is always working in some capacity in the church and is involved in counseling unwed moms. She and her husband Kyle are a great team and have two beautiful kids. She’s a lot of fun, but her compassion is like a trademark of her life. She truly cares about people, and wants to be on the front lines helping to change peoples lives. This is her third year to go with us to Cambodia and she has helped tremendously. Go Autumn!
Andrew and Allison Morris. Andrew and Allison are our Edmond Campus Pastors. This couple are definitely “go getters.” Allison also serves as our RTG director. They are superstars because of their heart for people. When they talk about reaching out to people or projects we are working on, you can hear their passion for God. This will be their third trip to Cambodia. They have literally raised over thirty five thousand dollars for their trips and projects over the last 3 years. They have made ongoing relationships with people in cambodia and Andrew has gone as far as to connect with local cambodians to learn the Khmer language.
They are hard workers, and great team leaders, and most importantly they truly care about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through words and actions. Yep, definitely global reach superstars.
Harvest’s staff and team members truly see ministry as the highest calling and best opportunity in life. We have several of these superstars going to Cambodia with us in just 2 and half days. Kelsi Vickers is one. Kelsi has been a part of the harvest team for several years now, has worked primarily with the one and only RevSPike. She is a sharp young lady and a hard worker. She is passionate and compassionate. She has gone on global reach trips with us for the last 3 years and has truly made a difference in the lives of people in Rwanda and Cambodia. I am so thankful she is going on this trip, and i am anxious to see the great things God will use her to do, and the things she will learn from this trip. Go Kelsi, your a world changing superstar!
