First Speaking Trip with Finn

We praise God because Jonalyn came through surgery beautifully. No complications and no excess bleeding during her procedure. Finn and Dad did great, as well. Thank you for praying as her good health makes it possible to go into this upcoming busy week with strength.

This week we look ahead to our time in Los Angeles. It will be Finn's inaugural speaking trip with us. Would you please pray for us, ESPECIALLY on Monday as we have a

6 am radio interview for our book,

a 9 am speaking event for Biola's entire student body (audience around 2000),

a 1 pm radio interview again for our book and

a 9 pm speaking event for a smaller audience at Biola (around 100+).

We ask for:
  1. Health, as we travel with Finn on a plane for the first time. We want to be sensitive to his needs as we travel and speak, we really want him to stay healthy. We've been asking God for wisdom as to how to incorporate Finn into our Soulation work. It would be wonderful if he could sleep during our talks as we will be baby-carrying him during both events. Grandma will be in the audience to help if there is a breakdown. However, Jonalyn specifically asks for peace and joy as she models another way to include your child in your work.
  2. We ask for tender hearts at Biola, that the students and faculty would be sensitive to hearing us speak about sharing your faith and gender myths.
We look forward to reporting back next week on how God answered our prayers.
