Please pray for Jerry today as he travels to Panama for one week where he will be meeting with LIOs and new partners for the Leadership in Obscurity Network!
He is travelling this trip alongside the International Steward ministry, our primary partner of the network at the moment!
During this trip Jerry will:
---Train Wesleyan Church LIOs in advanced stewardship and strategic planning
---Then lead an all-day workshop for the 15-20 mentee/disciple LIOs taught by those initial leaders
---Preach twice on Sunday
---and MAYBE even get to see the Canal...
The oral/arts festival in Orissa was a success & amazing experience. There was worship through art, story telling, dance, painting, music, etc. The event was moved indoors because they were worried about public persecution, but it was a wonderful event & many LIO connections were made for our Network. PTL for growth!
Dad is now in Chennai for the next 2 days meeting with a few LIO friends down there, then he's headed home to us - arriving Thursday afternoon.
One item of specific prayer...
Something personal and emotional...
It was a happy Valentine's Day in India already this morning... After being gone since last Thursday, Jerry's BAG ARRIVED! While HE was just happy to have a new set of clothes, the India team was overjoyed to find out that he'd brought candies and chocolates too! :)

Jerry is staying within 100 yards of where Mother Teresa lived and worked for over 50 years.
He and the team are staying in a hotel called "Hotel Heaven," which is right next to the "Mother House" of Mother Teresa.

Please pray for Jerry and the LIO team with whom he is working... They...
Hello, friends -
Here is a message that our partner, International Stewards, sent out to their support group.
Since we're all part of the Leadership in Obscurity Network, it means US too!
Would love to have you praying for Bob Wielenga and Jerry Vreeman over the next 12 - 14 days. They're headed out this afternoon around 4pm for Calcutta, India (actually called Kolkata these days). After four different flights and they should arrive there around noon on Saturday. WooHoo!
Please be praying for the following:
Spiritual Attack - It appears...
Jerry is off to India again TODAY! He will be traveling Thursday afternoon through Saturday morning.
In order to save $200 bucks, he'll be sleeping in the airport in Chennai, India on his way up north to Kolkata (as $200 for 6 hours in a hotel room is hard to justify...)
Just received a text that he's on the plane to London... layover #2 of 4. His crazy itinerary is as follows: Denver to Washington Dulles, Washington to London, London to Chennai, Chennai to Kolkatta
