nowhere else to go

In some mysterious way, God works through the prayers of His people.  We invite you today to pray with us and for us, as He brings the following requests to mind...

* Please pray with us for our friends here, who are co-workers too.  Their 4-year-old adopted Filipino son died this past weekend.  Though it wasn't totally unexpected, since he's had major health problems since his birth, and they knew he wouldn't live long, it is still a great loss to their family.  Please pray for God's comfort and strength during the days-long Filipino-style grieving process, and then for peace and rest and comfort for their family in the days that will follow his funeral tomorrow.

* Please also pray for an upcoming Bible dedication scheduled next month in another S.E. Asian country.  Many complications have emerged: health problems, a family death, and the last minute scheduling of a major religious event of another faith in the same area, which is causing questions about housing of visitors and other issues.  Please pray that God will work it all to His perfect plan, and that He will be glorified there as His Word is made known!

* And finally, please pray for our family in our upcoming travels and transitions back to the US. We deeply appreciate your prayers for us now!

Thank you for  praying. 

I have been driven many times to my knees
by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.
