2006-08-23: Big Team Meeting at Emerald Hills.

Today the International Services staff is having birthday lunch, big team meeting, and prayer time at Emerald Hills.  Pray for God's blessings on this day of celebration of the lives of team members.  Pray that it will also be a time to celebrate the birthing process of Emerald Hills.  Labor has begun there, and the nine committed "29" partners are pushing the process forward so that Emerald Hills will emerge as a fully developed prayer, retreat, and learning center.  Pray for a good team meeting — a really BIG team meeting — with fifty staff persons now working out of the International Services office and meeting together today at Emerald Hills to get to know new people better and to look forward to the events that are coming up the remainder of this year.  Pray for an amazing prayer time as the IS staff walks the prayer trails at Emerald Hills and prays for over 300 Team Expansion missionaries around the world.  Pray that the staff will "Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore!  Remember His marvelous works which He has done."  (I Chronicles 16:11,12)
