It is official.
On May 25, 2016, Pastor Anthony George officially commissioned the Lebanon 2016 Team to go to Lebanon at First Baptist Church of Atlanta! He even prayed over our team during the worship service. Tonight gives our team a reason to celebrate and rejoice over everything that the Lord has done to prepare our team mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually for this trip. “Be glad and rejoice! For the Lord has done marvelous things!” (Joel 2:21).
In fact, all of us are so joyful and thankful in heart for all that the Lord has done to provide for this trip, both prayerfully and financially, through the efforts of our prayer and financial supporters. . “…for the joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10). “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
All of us are very excited and cannot wait to see what the Lord does through our team as He sends us on this trip. “I give you the gift of peace. In the same way the Father sent me, I am now sending you” (John 20:21).
Pray for us that God’s will for the Lebanon Team will be made known to us as we go there. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7). Also, pray that lives will be transformed by Jesus’ Gospel. “But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown” (Matthew 13:23).
