Prayer Requests

From Winona Cole (VFMA: Peru):
Please pray for my husband Ronald Cole.

A short time ago my husband, Bro Ronald Cole from Chipman, N.B. had a routine checkup on his aorta. Everything was fine but during the test they discovered a lump on his thyroid.

Tomorrow, January 22 at 1:30 at the St. John Hospital he will have surgery to have the thyroid removed. Please keep him in your prayers.

From Dan Davis (South Africa):
Please pray for the Mkwane Family and for an end to the violence.

This family attended Turning Point until moving to another city for work. They had been in Johannesburg for holiday and were leaving today. As they left 8 men hijacked the car shooting Mrs. Mkwane through the heart, she was four months pregnant and the baby died as well. They also shot the 11 year old son but he lived and kidnapped the daughter who has not yet been found. We are having terrible violence between the Xhosa and the Zulu in certain areas near our home. Last night a policeman was shot in the violence.

From Robert Kelley (United Kingdom/Ireland/Channel Islands):
Please continue to pray for the accreditation of Harvest Bible College and the visa situation for the AIMers who want to come.

Many thanks to all who prayed for the accreditation inspection of Harvest Bible College. This was a very intense time and the enemy has fought very hard to frustrate and discourage us. The inspectors made many favorable comments about the college and also gave us areas of weakness. The final decision will be made on February 5, so we ask for your continued prayers. We are working on some of the recommendations that were made to us so that the accreditation agency can see them before the 5th of February. Please pray that God will give us wisdom and insight into all we need to do as well as the physical and mental strength we need.

Also, please pray for the UPC of Great Britain & Ireland as we work on immigration and visa matters for missionaries and AIMers desiring to enter the U.K. The paper work has been done and now we are believing God for a quick and favorable outcome. Pray especially for John and Susan Beek who need to get here quickly.
