Urgent Prayer Request

From Lynden Shalm (RD, Asia):
Please pray for Buay Lao Dee, superintendent for the Chiang Rai area of Thailand.

I just received a call from Brother Coolbaugh in Thailand concerning an urgent prayer request. It is for Brother Buay Lao Dee, who was the Superintendent for the Chiang Rai area of northern Thailand for 30 years.

He is not expected to live beyond 2 or 3 days and is bleeding internally.

We greatly appreciate you prayers.

Prayer Requests

From Ed Hosmer (Japan/WNOP):
Please pray for missionary David Doan (Japan) who had a mild heart attack.

This afternoon [Monday afternoon, Japan time] missionary David Doan in Japan, suffered a mild heart attack. He immediately went to the hospital here in Okinawa and was admitted. They had done some tests to find that he had 50% blockage and had given him some medication to help thin his blood. Already the medication seems to have taken effect and some of the blockage was removed. It appears that the blood circulation has returned to normal at this time. They do have him in ICU for 24hrs and will keep him in the hospital for a week to monitor him. Please pray for his quick recovery, for rest, and for his family during this difficult time.


Continue praying for Margaret White (Malaysia/Indonesia).


Please pray for my daughter Krystin Carlson.

Praise Report

From Tom Bracken (Taiwan):
The missions work here continues to grow and develop. On Sunday night, February 17, we conducted the last service of our Turning Point—Taiwan National Conference—2008! Somewhere between 30 and 35 people received the baptism of the Holy Spiritt. Thirteen have been baptized so far.

Over the three days of meetings, I would estimate that six hundred Chinese and approximately twenty-five Filipinos were in attendance.

A bit of exciting news was given to me last night by our head usher. There were approximately eighty first-time guests who attended the conference. Please keep us in prayer as we busy ourselves with the important work of doing follow-up on these new converts and contacts.

1:46 PM, Port Arthur, Texas, Christus, St. Mary’s Hospital, Vera Grace Tuttle, (the daughter of Matthew & Michelle Tuttle, granddaughter of Michael & Dianna Tuttle, Missionaries to The Netherlands, and Darrel and Sherry McCoy, Pastor in Nederland, Texas) entered this life for a short two hour visit. Long enough to mesmerize those she met in her short, but precious life span. Even though she came and went in a few short moments, she captivated hearts and changed our lives forever. Our first child / grandchild to be placed tenderly into the hands of our loving God, we will never forget you Vera Grace Tuttle.

She was hardly gone long enough from her celestial home to be missed by the angelic hosts. She lives among the family of heaven. Thank you, Lord, for sharing her for the few minutes you gave her to us.

Praise Report
From Pam Smoak (Tanzania/Burundi):

Just wanted to thank you for the prayers and concern. I am doing well since arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday. I am walking with a walker, slowly and carefully, doing my PT exercises and resting in between.

About CSI

Compassion Services International was organized as a Christian relief and development service provider dedicated to providing emergency relief during, or in the aftermath, of disasters. By reaching forth to the hungry, destitute, sick, and the unfortunate, we are able to show the world something of God's love. This program of relief was instituted to help in a practical way to compliment that love.

Since its inception and because of your willingness to share with the suffering, CSI has been able to help literally thousands in many nations of the world. Needs continue to pour into our office from around the world. In order for us to respond with the relief that is desperately needed, we seek your assistance. Let us make this year the greatest year ever in the history of Compassion Services International as we provide for those that, due to no fault of their own, suffer needlessly.
