As I load the car, I wonder how much prayer cover we have for the next 3 1/2 weeks of travel to and ministry in East Africa?
In past years we have been boayed by the prayers of caring folks here at home — at times we physically felt their prayers.
This trip has a seriousness about it that requires special attention. I know that events at home have most folks preoccupied with home-based issues. But God is the God of this world, and by means of the Holy Spirit our prayers are unlimited by time and space.
Our prayer calendar follows — adjusted for the time difference from the USA to Africa. Please pray for us as the Spirit leads.
