Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

March 2019 - Here are our prayer requests for this month:

1) PLEASE PRAY for our health. Barry has been down for two-plus weeks with a particularly bad virus, one that has knocked out his voice and totally sapped his energy. As we come to the end of our current term here in Gabon, there is always a lot that needs to be “finished up” and having the health and strength to do that...well we often take that for granted until it's no longer there. PLEASE PRAY for good health and strength for us as we work through these last couple of months. (ps...just today Barry feels like he's finally on-the-mend and getting over this, but please keep praying!)

2) PLEASE PRAY for our work among the West African economic migrants that call our area “home.” We have had great times of interactions with them, and made good friends with several of the key leaders among them. PLEASE PRAY specifically for a man named “Harold”...that the Holy Spirit would open more times of spiritual conversations with him. He recently returned after a 3-month visit back to his home country, and upon arriving back here, he gave Barry a beautiful outfit that he had carefully seleceted just for Barry. It's a special reminder of the good friendships that the Lord has blessed us with, among people who don't yet know Jesus as their Saviour and Lord, and we're asking you to join us in PRAYING FOR still more and deeper, meaningful times to talk together about who Jesus the Messiah truly is.

3) PLEASE PRAY for our interntional workers team here in Gabon. Two weeks ago we experienced the tragic death of the 5-year-old son of one of our doctors, and we would greatly appreciate your prayers as our team walks through this shock and the subsequent grieving process. PLEASE PRAY for the parents and family (they have three other children) of the boy who died. PLEASE PRAY for our whole team of international workers here as we each and together process through this tragedy, in different ways according to our different cultures, but also together as we strive to be a support and encouragement to eachother.

And these are our prayer requests for this month.  As always...THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your ongoing partnership with us in our work here in Gabon; can’t do it without you!  Blessings…
