Guest Blogger Series Intro

If you are reading this on Monday, May 3, I am in the air somewhere over the ocean on my way to Africa!

If you area Tuesday reader… Lord willing, we will have landed and are on our way!

For two weeks, a team of us are going to Burundi to train local pastors and missionaries. But the Rain will have a special treat during that time – Guest bloggers!

Several women bloggers who I have had the amazing privilege of getting to know these past few months will make special guest appearances here.

The only peep you will hear from me is at the top of each day I’ll be including a short update and prayer as to where our team is and how you can pray with us!

I am so excited about this series because I finally get to share OPB (Other People’s Blogs) with you first hand.

These ladies have inspired me, challenged me, drawn me out, pushed me off the ledge into a greater authenticity in my writing, and just been plain-ol-awesome to get to know.

Their stories are powerful. Raw. Funny. Tear-jerkers. Inspiring. Convicting. Challenging.

You will laugh. You will cry.

My prayer is that as you read their stories… your heart will be encouraged as mine has been by each of these women.

They are sassy, endearing, funny, and absolutely adorable and I know they will capture your heart as they have mine.

The next two weeks will talk about the theme of Newness.

Newness. New seasons. New attitudes. The newness that God brings… all things New. Each guest blogger will bring an aspect to the discussion that will help you look at the new thing that maybe God has started to do in your heart.

My prayer is that if you are on a journey of the New… these two weeks will encourage you to take the next step.

Lord willing, all will go smoothly at the Rain this week and technology will cooperate. I have set these up to auto-post, so they may or may not update my Twitter feed. My dear friend AnnieLaurie is managing the Rain in my absence… so if anything goes wacky – you can DM her at @annielaurie.
