Prayer Need

Early this morning I got a call from my daughter Kirsten and her family who are missionaries in Chad. There has been a threat of rebel take over in the capital of N'Djamena for the past few days, and now they hear fighting. She called to tell us to pray as they are evacuating.

We talked about all they would have to do and I told her that we would all be praying and then I told her to make it an adventure for the kids. She laughed and said, "Oh yes, they're already so excited."
Please pray for their safety and that they can- even in this dangerous situation be a witness.

Kirsten also said to give Pastor Tim a big hug and thank everyone at the Bridge church for the Satellite phone. It has been a life saver.

Absolutely praying for their safety and that the children will not be scared and that God keeps his hand of protection over them in every way.

Remember, This crisis was not unexpected to Him (the Almighty.) He has provided for your precious family. He handmade them, His breathe of life is in them. He will hand deliver them to exactly where He needs them. He just has a unique way of changing the itinerary. All our love & prayers!
