Jordan . . . Serbia Bound

Ten days from now, Jordan and eleven others from our church will get on a plane bound for Chicago then Germany then Belgrade to spend two weeks working with Serbian youth, primarily in a camp setting where they help the teens with their conversational English. This morning, our pastor led a time of prayer for the team, which is led by the mother of one of Jordan's good friends from high school.

After church, the team held a potluck for family members and supporters and shared some information about the trip as well as some prayer requests. They do still need to raise a little more support, though they're not especially worried about it, and of course hope for a successful and safe trip. Jordan specifically requested prayer that he would be able to do well as an assistant in the English classes, that he would understand others' hardships and know how to help, and that he would set a good example for the Serb youth without having a "better than you" attitude.
I'm also going to try to post a video of Pastor Kelly Byrd praying for the team during the morning service but I've been having some difficulty.
