Praying Wyoming into Belize #2

February 19, 2017

Isaiah 52:12New International Version (NIV)

12 But you will not leave in haste
    or go in flight;
for the Lord will go before you,
    the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

Last week, I began the journey of praying more intentionally for the two teams traveling from Wyoming to Belize this summer.  Both teams will be ministering with Oasis Ministry, our Belizean “arm” of ministry.  I invite you to continue on this “prayer journey” with me as we see God’s plans unfold.

I have shared Isa. 52:12 above because this scripture  stood out for me in my readings this week.  Please join me in praying THAT WE WILL WAIT  for our two Wyoming teams to Belize:

Lord, we believe You for success for these two teams from Wyoming into Belize this summer.  These are Your teams!  Help all of us to wait upon You, not rushing ahead trying to figure out things in our own strength.   Open our ears to hear Your voice in the valleys of “indecision.”  Help us to remain calm and prayerful throughout this journey.  As You move us forward, we also ask You to protect the work that we have already done in preparation for these missions.  Be our “rear guard”, protecting us from  the enemy who tries  to steal our joy and our resources.  May Your Name be the Name that is exalted in our teams.  We refuse pride and choose to walk humbly with our God.  In Jesus’ Name, AMEN.

Specific prayer requests for both teams:
for clarity on projects to be completed in Belize; we are working with our missionaries there to determine all that can be accomplished

for the Lord to raise up more prayer warriors to cover these teams in prayer

for more members for the Laramie team; we are believing the Lord for 15; we have 7 confirmed and 5 who are strongly considering; please pray for everyone called to hear the call!

for fundraising efforts for both teams; we are trying to raise approximately $1500 per team member for Laramie team and I think Cheyenne is comparable

Thank you for praying for us today! We are believing the Lord to do GREAT THINGS in Belize this summer.

Praying Wyoming into Belize 2017 #1

February 13, 2017

2/13/2017

We had two of us on the prayer line this morning, praying Wyoming into Belize.

Please join me in prayer for the 2 teams headed into Belize and Oasis Ministry this summer.  The Cheyenne team travels in June and the Laramie team travels in July.

This week I am praying for FAITH to arise!  Please join me in prayer:

Lord, we come to You on behalf of the two teams heading to Belize this summer from Wyoming.  We pray for great faith to arise in the hearts of each called missionary from Wyoming.  When we are afraid, help us to put our confidence in You.  Help us to trust Your promises.  Help us to resist doubt.  You have not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline and sound judgement.  We receive Your perfect peace.  Not peace as the world gives but Your peace that is steady and strong.  Whenever we have troubled thoughts, help us to choose faith over fear!  In Jesus’ Name, AMEN

Specific prayer requests for both teams:
for clarity on projects to be completed in Belize; we are working with our missionaries there to determine all that can be accomplished

for the Lord to raise up more prayer warriors to cover these teams in prayer

for more members for the Laramie team; we are believing the Lord for 15; we have 7 confirmed and 5 who are strongly considering; please pray for everyone called to hear the call!

for fundraising efforts for both teams; we are trying to raise approximately $1500 per team member for Laramie team and I think Cheyenne is comparable

It’s Time to Go Again…

February 7, 2017

For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2: 3(NKJV)

Many of you have followed us over the years as we have gone in and out of the tiny Nation of Belize.  As I look back, I realize that each trip had its challenges and each trip was brought forth by the Hand of God.  As I write this blog today, we face some big challenges again.

This year two teams from Wyoming are being called to Oasis Ministry in Belize.  One team, being launched from First Baptist Church in Cheyenne and led by David Waterstreet is believing God for great things in June 2017.  I am not a part of this team, but told David that I would ask all of you to cover them in prayer.  Our team, led by Stan and me, will travel into Belize at the end of July.  We certainly need your prayers, too!

Beginning Monday, February 13th, I am launching a weekly 15-minute prayer call for these two teams.  I would welcome anyone who would be willing to join us in prayer whenever you are able.

Belize Blessings Prayer Call~Mondays, beginning 2/13/17 (until further notice)

7:15-7:30am  Mountain Time

Dial: 712-432-0850    Code: 394072#

Also, would you please take a moment today and pray for these two Wyoming teams to Belize:

for faith to arise in each team member

for all plans to be God’s plans

for God’s provision for travel and mission

for Ron and Linda and Oasis Ministry as they prepare for all teams in 2017

for God to be glorified in all things; for fulfillment of the Great Commission in Unitedville Belize

for all team members who are being called to these teams to respond

Thank you for your prayers!  Hope you can join us on Mondays on the prayer call

Heading into Belize this weekend

October 27, 2010

Dear praying friends,

We are headed back into Belize on Sunday, Oct. 31st and will return to the States on Sunday, Nov. 7th.  The other part of the team we are joining will be arriving in Belize on Sunday, Oct. 30th.  Please pray for our team:

for Jesus Christ to be proclaimed in Belize and everywhere we will be in the next week (airports, etc)

for these next few days of prep as we pack and settle final details with jobs, etc. Stateside and prepare our hearts to be aligned with God’s heart

for safety for each team member

for safety for our families and properties in the States

for God’s direction and wisdom for every ministry project

for Pastor Ron and Linda as they prepare for us in the midst of trying to clean up after Hurricane Richard

for all financial, physical, emotional, spiritual needs of the team to be met with God’s wonderful grace

for God to be glorified in all things as we lift up the marvelous Name of Jesus Christ

Thank you for praying for us.    I pray for each of you today as well:

Lord, I pray for each person reading and responding to this prayer blog.  Please bless them beyond measure as they proclaim Your Kingdom.  Give them divine appointments to share the gospel with those who need to hear.  Protect them and their families and properties from all snares of the evil one.  Be glorified in and through their lives and ministries!  IN JESUS NAME…AMEN!

Blessings,

Gina

Headed to Belize

June 7, 2010

Dear friends,

So many of you have prayed for us and God has answered the prayers of His people.  In about 16 hours, we head to DIA to catch a plane to Houston and then onto Belize City.  We have been praying and preparing spiritually for months, but even so, there are still “last minute” things that need to be done.  My dog, “Jakey the Wonder Dog” needs to go to his temporary quarters at daughter Jessica’s, Stan is still shopping for nails and such to build the house, AND the tubs…oh, those wonderful tubs need to be finally sealed after stuffing just a “little” more in without going overweight!

Ahhh…the challenges and the beauty of “stretching” for the Lord.  Amazing and amazingly painful at times!  But oh, how we grow!

I’m going to post one more time on our Belize Blessings FB and send out the last e-mail and then I will sign-off until Belize.  I’m praying that we will have a good internet connection while at our base so that I can then re-connect with all of you.

Please continue to pray…

for traveling mercies as we drive to DIA from two different cities, connect, and then fly on to Belize

for good relations with Continental Airlines as we check in our team of 14 plus all the stuff

for traveling mercies on the ground in Belize from Belize City to our base in Uniteville

for safety on the job site

for our programs in the schools and church

Ok…I think that is all for now.  My brain isn’t functioning well at the moment.  Oh, yeah…it might be good to pray for the “mind of Christ” for me!  LOL

Blessings, Gina and Stan and the Belize Blessings 2010 Mission Team!

16 days and counting…

May 23, 2010

Hello, friends,

In just 16 days, a team from Wyoming will travel to Belize to minister.  We are so grateful for the many prayers that have been offered for us along this journey.  We have seen the Lord provide financially for us and are praising Him for the funds to build a house for Yanira in Belize.  He is good!

Please pray with us today:

for all details Stateside to be handled before we head into Belize

for travel safety as we will be gone from Wyoming June 8-15

for safety on the job site in Belize

for Gina and John as we prepare for ministry on Weds. night in Belize

for the puppet team and the rest of us as we prepare to minister in the Belizean schools

for prayer ministry to happen in Belize

for finances and supplies to be finalized

You can follow our team’s progress on FB at Belize Blessings 2010

Blessings, Gina

100 for 10 is growing!

May 13, 2010

Ok…we now have the equivalent of 40 $10 pledges towards our “100 for 10” challenge.  An anonymouns donor has promised to match up to 1000 dollars raised in May.  We need 60 more 10 dollar pledges.  Can you help?

Send checks to:

Lighthouse Ministries of Laramie  45 Sage Ridge Rd.  Laramie, WY 82072

Update on “100 for 10” Challenge

May 4, 2010

Dear ones,

As you may know, an anonymous donor has promised to match $1000 in gifts given in May.  And so a few days ago, we issued a “100 for 10” challenge, meaning that we are looking for 100 people who could give 10 dollars in May.

So far we have the equivalent of 27 $10 gifts given.  We only need 73 more $10 gifts to  meet this challenge!

If you’d like to help, please send a check written to:

Lighthouse Ministries of Laramie c/o Stan and Gina Gibson  45 Sage Ridge. Rd. Laramie, WY 82072

Keep praying…GOD IS GOOD!

36 days and counting…

May 3, 2010

Dear praying friends…

In 5 weeks and 1 day we will be in Belize.  How time has flown!  Your prayers for us have been so valuable as we have sought the heart of our Father to see what His plans for us could be.  We know for sure that we will build a house for Yanira and her family as I think we are near 100 percent funding for the project.  We still have questions of God as we seek to know all He has in store for us.  This faith thing is a big thing…a real stretching thing.  If you’ve ever gotten outside the “comfort” place, you will understand what I mean.

As we ask you to continue to pray, please ask God on our behalf:

for health and strength for each team member; we are getting a little “threadbare” at this point and need to press in    

for courage for what lies ahead

for wisdom as we schedule these last few weeks before travel, we have lots of things to get done and busy schedules make scheduling group meeting times a bit of a challenge!

for Pastor Ron & Linda and staff as they prepare for us

for good times with the Lord in the days ahead so that our spiritual “cups” will be full of Him

for the attitudes of our hearts and minds to be cleansed by the Holy Spirit so that we are one with God

for our 100 for 10 fundraiser

Thank you for your continuing concern for our team…your prayers are being felt!

Blessings, Gina
