Dear Family and Friends,

We need to extend to you our heartfelt thanks.  Many of you have supported us for our upcoming mission’s trip to Bali, Indonesia.  Experiencing the love and support from the body of Christ is worth more than we can ever express to you!  We also know how essential and important prayer support is when we are gone and thus we are requesting specific prayers over the days we are gone.
July 9th– Please pray for safe flights.  We leave at 11:30 at night and fly for sixteen hours.  Mckenzie does not enjoy flying.  Please pray we all sleep.
July 10th – Still flying.  Stopover in Hong Kong.
July 11th– Arrival day- please pray that we get over jet lag as quickly as possible.
July 12th-13th – We will be organizing the upcoming VBS program with the McLeod’s.  ( Ben’s sister and brother-in law).  We have been planning the week from this side of the globe and communicating by e-mail.  Pray for cooperative work relationships, many volunteers, and for the Holy Spirit to be encouraging many kids to come and hear the gospel over the course of the week.
July 14th-19th– VBS- We need prayer each and everyday.  There is a spiritual war going on in this country where Christianity is not the accepted faith.  Pray for safety, endurance, soft hearts towards the Lord Jesus Christ, clarity of speech as we share the gospel, health of the workers and the kids, and an overall sense of unity as we work together to share the Truth.
July 19th– This is going to be a special day where we hope to invite the families of the kids that have been attending the VBS to hear what their kids have been doing and to fellowship with us at a barbecue.  Pray that lots of people come!
July 20th– We will be going and ministering in the church where we are holding the VBS.  Pray for strength for all of the VBS workers.  Pray that people who had not been attending the church would be drawn to coming and making weekly worship a part of their lives.
July 21-22– We are not exactly sure what we are doing these days.  We may be working on a Children’s project.
July 23-24– We are traveling back home through Hong Kong.  Please pray for safety as we travel in a foreign city.  Pray we find our hotel and that we enjoy experiencing all the new sites, sounds and foods that await us.

We value our partnerships with you as friends and family.  We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to go as a family and work together with our extended family in their ministry.  We are going to encourage them in their work which can be oppressive at times.  Pray for times of laughter and many wonderful memories as we share in their world.  Thank you again – words do not express our hearts but they will have to do.  We
will share our trip with you when we get home!
In Christ ,
Ben, Colleen Fletcher and Mckenzie

PS- We do not have an updated picture of our family so as soon as we do I will send it!
