The Pickett's Trip to Singapore!

Post Featured Image

The Pickett's Trip to Singapore!

When I mentioned to my husband Kevin that I was interested in going to Singapore to serve at the International FCA Conference in December and then asked him if he would like to go, he said, "What will we be doing there?"  I replied, "I don't know the exact details, but we would be available to serve in any way needed.  We met with Mark Stephens, the Mid-Atlantic Area Director for International FCA and Kevin posed the same question, I think he wanted a more concrete answer than what I gave him.  Mark said, "You both would serve in a ministry of prayer and presence."  So with that answer, we both proceeded to make plans for a trip to Singapore.

Several weeks later, Carrie Hudson, the admin in charge of this conference, called and asked us about our service in our local church and what we may be interested in doing at the conference.  Knowing I had been a part of Mark's Thursday morning prayer team, she asked if we would be interested in leading a prayer team.  We both thought that would be a good idea and Kevin agreed to be available to help lead the worship music too.  So we organized a 30 days of prayer leading up to the trip and prayed together as a couple in preparation for leading this prayer team; a first for us and a first for International FCA.

Mark's words were prophetic as we did serve in a ministry of prayer and presence while at the conference.  We started the day with prayer time at 6:30 am and then continued to pray throughout the day with FCA staff and often their spouses who were in attendance.  Our ministry of presence included hearing many of their stories on how God led them to Him, often in miraculous ways, and how God led them into sports ministry.  

Needless to say, we were so inspired by these international believers and their passion for God and their service through sports ministry.  Many of them risk their lives, their property and their families as they live in Communist and/or very restrictive countries.  They are ordinary people who do extraordinary things, yet who struggle like we do.  They, like Paul, in Philippians 3:8-10, "....count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ  and be found in him......

We have many God stories we can share with you that space won't allow in this report but here is one neat God story...

We have made many new friendships and feel like we now have family all throughout East Asia.  In fact, we plan to continue praying with them via Facebook live video or Whats App.  We are honored to be a part of this amazing ministry and to continue to minister to our brothers and sisters in the LORD through this ministry of prayer and presence.

In His Service,

Kevin and Dawn Pickett

I am not suggesting your content is not solid, however suppose you
added a post title that grabbed a person's attention? I mean The
Pickett s Trip to Singapore! | Carroll County FCA is kinda vanilla.
You could look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines
to grab people interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about
everything've got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
