A few prayer requets...

We see and hear of many heartbreaking things, here on our field.  A lady started visiting our church a few months ago.  Her main reason for coming the first time was to ask for prayer for her son.  Her son, 10 or 11 years old, is missing.  They assume he was kidnapped, but there is no trace of him.  Because of their position in society, they won't get any help from the police either.  That's just a fact of life here.   Kidnapping and child trafficking is very common, especially among the poor.  Last week this same lady's 5-year old son drank water from a public well in their village in the morning, he immediately became very sick, and tragically died by that night.  The lady and her two younger daughters were also very critical, because of drinking the same water.  Please pray for this family, that they will learn of the love of Christ, through these tragedies.
Brian was visiting in the college near our home here, last Wednesday, and met a young man named Dhananjay.  He was able to share the Gospel with him, and one student who attends our church loaned him a Bible to read.  He was in church on Sunday, and last night came to our weekly Bible class.  He had a list of questions that he had written down, while reading the Bible.  Brian was able to share the Gospel with him again, and begin answering some of his questions.  Before he left, Brian gave him a Bible.  With tears in his eyes, he said,  "I've been wanting one of these since last week, how did you know?"  Pray for Dhananjay to be saved.  He is from a Hindu background.
On a personal note...we usually begin school the beginning of July.  Because of some financial issues, we were a little late in placing our curriculum order this year, so the girls still have not started.  All of Ethan's books arrived, so I started with him last week.  (BTW...homeschooling only one child...what a breeze! LOL)  The last box of books has been shipped, but has not arrived yet.  Please pray that it will come soon! 
   Thanks for taking the time to pray for us!
