Missions Training

Hello all!

This past week from Tuesday to Friday we did our missions training in Montreal, Quebec. It was an incredible week! We were lead by a passionate missionary couple named Willie and Angela. We were mightily blessed while we were there and we learned so much. We were met by God's presence the entire time we were there and we left feeling so encouraged. We did sessions on several different topics to get us ready for our short term trip. Such as; finances, spiritual warfare & the occult, the basics of evangelism, what does S I M believe, and we learned more about Zambia. We left their home totally on fire and passionate about what we are going to be doing in Zambia.
On Friday morning we skyped with the missionary we are going to be staying with in Zambia. She answered our questions about what to wear (ranging from our shoes to what to wear to church), how to greet people when we arrive, and what to pack for our rural camping trip! She also shared her passion for the APPLE ministry and her prayers for the ministry's future. Dan and I loved seeing her vision for the young people of Zambia and we are now so excited to be a part of it!
If you want a prayer bookmark we can mail one to you, just message me with your email address. Also soon I will be putting up info on how to donate to us or the ministry!
We love you all!

Psalm 139

For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand
    when I awake, I am still with you.
19 If only you, God, would slay the wicked!
    Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
20 They speak of you with evil intent;
    your adversaries misuse your name.
21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord,
    and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
22 I have nothing but hatred for them;
    I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
24 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.


La semaine dernière, du mardi au vendredi nous avons fait notre formation missions à Montréal, Québec. C'etait une semaine incroyable! Nous avons été menés par un couple passionné missionnaire, Willie et Angela. Nous avons été puissamment bénis quand nous étions là et nous avons beaucoup appris. Nous avons été accueillis par la présence de Dieu tout le temps que nous étions là et nous sommes partis feeling tellement encouragée. Nous avons suivi des cours sur plusieurs sujets différents. Comme; les finances, le combat spirituel et l'occultisme, les bases de l'évangélisation, ce qui SIM croire, et nous avons appris plus sur la Zambie. Nous avons quitté leur maison en feu et totalement passionné par ce que nous allons faire en Zambie.
Le vendredi matin, nous avons skypé (?) avec le missionnaire avec qui nous allons rester en Zambie. Elle a répondu à nos questions sur ce qu'il faut porter (comme nos chaussures de quoi porter à l'église), comment saluer les gens quand nous arrivons, et ce qu'il faut emporter pour notre voyage de camping en milieu rural! Elle a également partagé sa passion pour le ministère Apple et ses prières pour l'avenir du ministère. Dan et moi avons beaucoup aimé voir sa vision pour les jeunes de la Zambie et nous sommes maintenant tellement excitée d'être une partie du ministère!
Si vous voulez une prière signet nous pouvons envoyé un par la poste à vous, juste message moi avec votre adresse e-mail. Aussi bientôt je vais mettre ici des infos sur comment faire un don à nous ou au ministère!
Nous vous aimons beaucoup!
