Recently Evan and I have been asking ourselves, why are we so tired and stressed? Well multiple reasons have caused this and I want to let you in on some things to pray for. First of all, some families that are good friends of ours have left in just a very short time for tragic reasons, without getting to say goodbye. Please pray for these families as they deal with the things that happened in their lives and that God would protect them. And then also pray for us and our community as we also figure out how to process these tragedies. To check out one of the families most recent prayer requests click here-> Leedahls.
Secondly, in response to recent, escalating criminal activity directed at the SIL community in Ukarumpa, the Branch Administration has decided to proactively implement a series of self-imposed restrictive measures aimed at reducing crime. Since Friday, the 10th of October, the Market on centre has been closed. This action is designed to bring peer pressure on those responsible for recent crimes through the villages in which they reside. It is hoped that these same communities will benefit in equal measure from the cessation of criminal activity to which they too are exposed. Please pray for all members of the Aiyura valley who are affected. Also pray for the victims and the perpetrators of these crimes. Pray for the community’s resolve to follow through with this course of action. (official statement)
Another thing that I would ask that you pray for would be that we are not meeting our budget goals. We need another $400 in monthly giving to get back on track. Please be praying for partners to come along side of us and fill in those gaps. Thank you!!
