Be back on Saturday...

Where am I going until Saturday, you ask?  To a migrant camp!

Tomorrow we will be going to a migrant camp to live with the people and pick in the fields to find out what it's really like to live the life of a migrant worker.  We will be sleeping where they sleep (in shacks) eating what they eat (cooked over a fire), and working alongside them (from 5am to 5pm).  We will not be showering while we are there, and have been told to just bring 1 set of day/work clothes, and a set of night clothes.  It will definitely be an interesting experience. 

So, please pray that I stay warm (it will be in the low 40's at night), and that my hands don't get to blistered from working in the fields. Also pray that God will give me opportunities to encourage these people, and the right words to say at the right time.  I don't want to go just to "experience" their way of living, I want to be able to also make an eternal impact while I am there!
