Waiting in the airport

Hey my sweet bloggy friends!! I just wanted to ask you all to pray for our flights! We started out this morning by leaving my house at 4 am! Then it was a 4 hour trip to the ABQ New Mexico airport then we had to check in and board the plane for LA. We have been sitting around for about 5 hours here we were able to grab a quick lunch and meet up with /have a girl from Canada named Joanna who is going to Uganda with us :)
The team and I are sitting in the Los Angeles Airport about to board the plane for Dubai then we spend the night there and then in the morning continue on to Uganda!! I am not a huge fan of flying anymore since the fire, so I wanted to ask you all? to please be praying for the flights for smooth and not bumpy flights that God would hold it steady in his hand and that he would provide and open up doors for us to talk to people on our flight!! Thanks sweet friends!
-Emma

Praying for you dear child of God! My new favorite song is The Words I would say by Sidewalk Prophets. Look it up if you don't know it. I love the verse- Be strong in the Lord and never give up hope. You're gonna do great things I already know. God's got his hands on you so don't live life in fear. I know God has his hands on you and you are going to be perfectly fine! Happy travels!

Chris and Sarah said...

Oh Emma, I will be praying for you. I also have a terrible fear of flying so you can bet I'll be holding you up in prayer.

I can't wait to see pics of you holding those precious babies again!!!

Stephanie said...

I'll definitely be praying for y'all and the whole trip! :)

Hi Emma!

It's Lisa, your mom's friend in Pagosa. First, THANKs for taking charge of your sibs that windy cold afternoon at the coffee shop in Pagosa so your mom could attend our meeting. I want you to know that I am committed to praying specifically for YOU during this trip to Uganda.

As you fly to Dubai tonight, know that your Heavenly Father hides you under the shadow of His wing. No fear will overtake you, no weapon formed against you will prosper. Your prayers for Uganda's least loved are heard on High. God is sending you in answer to their cries - not because of what you do, but because of who God made you.

May tender mercies and amazing grace pave you way in the "wilderness."

Lisa, (wife of Mark, mom of Tavin and Taleah, intercessor for Emma on a mission!) Blessings!!!

Sommer said...

You will be in our prayers the entire time. May God bless everything that you put your hand to there as well.

Vicki said...

Jessa said...

Praying for you Emma!! God be with you. May He open the doors He wants you to enter and close the others. May He give you a strong peace and boldness for His name and His children. "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous ... for the Lord your God will be with you!" Joshua 1:9 Young girl, you will do big things for our God - just keep letting Him use you!! Hugs and prayers!!

Michelle said...

Emma, I will be praying that you will feel the Lord's comforting arms wrapped around you as you travel. Thank you for sharing your fears and concerns.

Sherrie said...

Praying for you Emma, and the rest of your team as well....I've flown to China four times, when I get anxious on the flight and my mind starts to wander to places that make me a little worried, I just make myself remember all the thousands of flights that take off and land safely each day all over the world, and also I think about my faith. Maybe that will help you if you get anxious. God Bless.

Shannon said...

Emma! I am praying that the Lord holds that plane in His very steady hand and that you will feel peace that passes all understanding.....
Praise God for all He will do with and in you guys during this trip!

You got it sweet girl, hope you have a great trip! I have a friend living in Africa... http://pamojalife.org/ she's getting ready to go back after having been over here for fund raising... I know your mom mentioned you wanted to live and work in Africa someday, so maybe my friend Chatty would be someone to help!

Ladyblog said...

I will definitely be praying for you all. I have a fear of flying and adopting was the only thing that motivated me to get on a long flight! Praying for all smooth flights and for the pilots!
I hope your missions trip is a blessing..........

Delicate*Daisy said...

Sandy said...

Emma,
I comment sometimes on your Mom's blog, but this is so sweet that you have your own blog and are going on another mission trip. My prayer for you on this trip is boldness to allow Him to use you in a MIGHTY WAY. Being so young, you will have a way that will be easier to understand for many of the young people. God will work thru you in a wonderful way.
Be Blessed child of the Most High
And, one more thing...I am very fearful of flying and the Lord reminds me when I do fly, which isn't often, that He is in Control. Rest in His arms and you will be alright.

Audrey said...

Emma, I'm praying for you! I just flew from LAX to Hong Kong to Cambodia in February so I remember that long flight all too well. LORD, please grant rest to each of the passengers on the plane. May they have/take opportunities to move around to prevent uncomfortable legs/ankles and may you steady the plane when it approaches rough wind, keeping the flight attendants and pilots wide awake and alert. May Emma's heart be at peace. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

love,
Audrey

Dear Emma, I'm praying. :) I'm so excited for you and the team on this trip. Rest assured that God is at the helm. He will most certainly use you and change you. Just so you know, I'm not praying for perfect flights, but I'm praying that He will keep you in perfect peace. :)

Hello Sweety,

I have been communicating with your mama. The Lord has "parted the way" for me to meet up with you--how does Sunday or Monday evening sound? Which would be better? I look forward to meeting you face to face :-)

P.S. Praying for your flight(s).

Love, Summer (my contact is 0782528840).

Emma,

Praying for a safe trip there and that God's hand will be clearly seen in all that transpires -- from the air to the ground and then back again! His rich blessings on all the babies you will love on in His name! May many know that He is the Father of the fatherless (true no matter what our age!)
