Travis arrived in Richardson, TX this morning and learned that his first two appointments canceled on him. The second one was with a pastor who unexpectedly had to be in Chicago this week. But, the first appointment was with Doug Bender.
Doug Bender works with the I Am Second movement. This is a parachurch organization that plants churches overseas and small groups domestically. Travis went to seminary with Doug and was hoping to glean some church planting wisdom from him. (We have a coach here, but multiple perspectives is always a good thing.)
Our prayer request today is for Doug and his family. They are pregnant with their second child and learned a month ago that this baby isn’t going to make it. Today that baby girl, who they named Hope, passed away. They’re asking for prayer for a quick and easy labor and delivery.
