Prayer Requests and Praise Reports

Urgent Prayer Requests From John Hopkins (RD, Central America/Caribbean):
Please pray for the Turks and Caicos Islands as they brace for another hit by Hurricane Hanna. '

Urgent prayer request:
Sister Nicola Hanna, wife of Pastor Derek Hanna, called and informed us that the Turks & Caicos Islands have been hit hard by Hurricane Hanna causing severe flooding on all of the islands. It seems as if the storm is going to come around and hit the island twice and they are bracing for the second round of high winds and torrential rains. She is requesting all to intercede for the safety and protection of the saints and inhabitants of the Turks & Caicos Islands.

Please pray for this urgent need!

From Gail Burton (Venezuela):
Please put Bro. James Burton on your prayer list.

He was taken to the hospital on Monday evening because he has been coughing up blood and hasn’t been able to eat. Tests were taken and he has a hernia in the stomach. This morning it looks like it ruptured and he is in Intensive Care, and it doesn’t look good. Remember him and Sis. Martha Burton in prayer.

Update from Norman Paslay at 2:34 p.m.:
Bishop Burton headed to surgery asap. He has a strangulation hernia. Pray earnestly.

From Randall Richardson (Mauritius/Reunion/Seychelles):
Please pray for our Bible School in La Reunion “Institute Biblique de la Reunion”. We now have 12 first year students and we need the blessing of the Lord upon the teaching staff and the student body.

Praise Report From Darrell and Donna Geissler (Uruguay):
Federico underwent surgery on Saturday morning the 30th, and came through the surgery fine, which is an answer to many prayers. Yesterday, Tuesday, he was responding very well, and they were planning to remove the breathing tube, and move him from ICU to a regular room.

There will still be evaluations, but he's talking and seems to be very sharp mentally -- another answer to prayers that went up on his behalf.

Thank you to all who have prayed.
