Recently, we were reminded of the importance of faithfully praying for missionaries. Danger is REAL.  A missionary in Uganda, relayed concern about the possible safety of their lives as a result of housing and caring for another missionary whose life and his family’s life was threatened. He was left for dead after being stopped on the road and viciously attacked.

John & Karen McPherson continue to faithfully train & minister in Grenada.  Recently there have been opportunities for the national believers to “try their wings” and trust the Lord. The McPhersons are grateful for good results.  This summer a team is coming to begin building a house for a national pastor who has only 1 more year of studying for the pastorate

In mid February, the church had hoped to sign papers to acquire their first building outside of Paris in France. Soon after Kristi Colas wrote her last update, someone tried to burn down the building. The floors & ceilings need to be replaced, yet the building stood firm.  What men intended for evil, God intended for good. The owner is allowing them to choose the new flooring!

In January, Alvin & Sharon Weiss celebrated 40 years of service in Mexico. On January 24th, they had a special Praise & Thanksgiving service to thank the Lord for His bountiful goodness.  They are also rejoicing over their first ever overnight couples retreat. Twenty-four couples participated. Pray that the marriages and families of those who attended will be strengthened spiritually.
