Hey Pikes Peak,

In just under a month, our family will be launching into our travels all across the world!

I (Michael) am so excited for this trip as a family as its something I’ve longed for and missed out on during the covid season. Its a special trip for so many reasons but one of the main reasons is that it will be Amanda and I’s first time overseas together! Of course we get the joy of bringing Micah and Levi with as we embark on our first missions endeavor as a family!

Over the span of 53 days we will be in Colorado, Kansas City, Georgia, The Middle East, Finland, and Norway!

We’re filled with expectation to see God move in wild ways across the nations, as well as, full of expectancy to see how he will move in us through this trip! We’re eager to hear his voice, feel his heart, and give ourselves fully to the storyline he’s writing in and through us!

🙏 Here are some ways you join us in prayer for our trip!!! 🙏

  • Pray that from The Send in Kansas City that missionaries would be sent to every nation on the planet! Especially to the 3.2 million unreached people of the world! We are believing for 200,000 missionaries to be sent from America!
  • Pray for deep heart connection between us and some of our closest friends living long term in the Middle East! We long to bring them encouragement, refreshment and join them as they contend for God to move in their nation! 
  • Pray for The Send Norway to catalyze a European Missions movement to some of the hardest most closed nations on the planet. Pray that the Lord would shake the Norwegian church and activate them into their adventurous call to be missionaries in places others would not dare to go!
  • Lastly, pray that we would have the most fun as a family! Pray for Gods grace over us as we get on many planes! Pray that our kiddos would have so much and feel so included in the mission!

Thank you so much for your faithful and constant prayer support and encouragement! We really could not do this without all the people who rally around us!

Ps. Here is the Link to my band, Torchbearers most recent album, “Songs for the Secret Place”

These 3 songs came from a time of just being in the presence of Jesus together as friends, letting the Holy Spirit lead and capturing it! I pray Jesus encounters you in the secret place as you listen!

Much love,

Michael, Amanda, and Micah Roppo
