S & E (national partners) face many challenges as they minister in Israel. They seek to develop relationships with Arab neighbors and share the Gospel. Recently E had emergency surgery and has learned that she is cancer free.  S is a doctor works as a director for a hospital for special needs patients. Pray for him as he balances his busy schedule.

B & J have been  blessed by a visit from B’s parents just before New Year’s Day. They brought with them documents needed to apply for their student visas.  The documents have been submitted and should be returned around February 5.  Please pray that the process will be successful and that the they will continue to adjust to language and culture in Asia.

 Kristi Colas is thankful for the prayers and generous gifts for her church in France. They are looking forward to moving into their first building shortly.  Church leaders met with the owners of the building before Christmas and were able to negotiate a lower price for the down payment than they had expected. Pray for the necessary work to be completed before moving in.
