Cruise with a Mission - Newsletter

November 14, 2011

Message From The Director


      "And the LORD said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes and be ready by the third day, because on that day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people."                  - Exodus 19:10,11

Ahoy there Cruisers! Can you believe in about a month we will finally be together? In Exodus 19:10 & 11 God speaks to Moses and tells him to get the Israelites ready for a close encounter with God. Now, while I urge you to do your laundry, you don't have to be ready by next Tuesday, neither will you have to approach a mountain. But in the same spirit, I urge you to begin preparing your hearts for an amazing encounter with a God who loves you more than you could ever know. I'm praying for this trip daily and for the lives that will be touched on board the ship, in our group, and whomever we make mission contact with. I ask you to continue praying for our trip and begin to move your "mindset" and "heartset" to a place where God can use you and find you. Seven days is long enough for God to do an amazing work in you. So as you prepare to be on board, may you already begin to feel the blessings that will be overflowing on Cruise With a Mission 2011.

This particular newsletter is filled with very important information that needs a response from you. So please read everything and read carefully! See you soon!
                                 - Fidi Mwero (CWM 2011 Director)
