The IMPACT Trip #1 will serve in Cuba June 16–23. “Bless the Cuba mission and make their work have a lasting impact, using your Spirit to inspire all involved to grow in their faith each day. Amen.”


Tuesday, June 19

All is well in Cuba with our team. Yesterday Silvi said via text, “Today was really the best first ministry day ever on a mission trip, I think!” They still do not have WiFi to post photos, but I’m sure everything is being well photographed!

Today they read this scripture passage:

Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.  
—Matthew 11:28

Let us pray:

God who carries every burden, 
God go gives rest,
God who knows our struggle,
Let our IMPACT team know rest this week,
rest from worry,
rest from heavy burdens,
rest from the expectations placed upon them.
Let our IMPACT team know rest this evening,
rest from heavy labor,
rest from the long day, 
rest within the comfort
of conversation and prayer,
a shared meal and a time to (re)create.
Give them strength for the journey, O God.
And carry us all toward your love,
in faith and in hope. Amen.
