Prayer Requests

From Joseph Collins (Portugal):
Please pray for the Portuguese national conference this weekend, March 14-15, and also for my wife who is not well.

We need to request prayer for Portugal and for my wife who is suffering in her body. We have our National Conference this weekend March 14 -15 and we want to see the Lord pour out His Spirit.

From Terry and Cindy McFarland (Ireland):
Please help us pray for the peace process here in Northern Ireland to remain moving forward.

Over the last three days we have had the murder of soldiers and police here. The Real IRA and the Continuity IRA have claimed responsibility for the deaths. We have been moving freely here in the land since the peace process started and now they are trying to derail the peace process here. All of the shootings have taken place within 5 miles of our home here. Thank you in advance.
From Randal Richardson (Mauritius/Reunion/Seychelles):
Please continue to pray for La Reunion and Madagascar.

Here in La Reunion March 10, 2009, is their next big day for manifestations and expected rioting and looting.

In this country the unemployment rate is over 25% and those living below the poverty level are more than 52%. Things are very serious. Everyone without exception is expecting major problems.

Already during the past three days: at least four businesses have been burnt out, six cars burnt and destroyed, and other damages.

One of our pastors reported that it really was bad in front of his home Saturday evening. They are saying that it is too late for anyone to fly out of the country as there will be no planes and no flights available on March 10.

All of the major shopping areas have been closed by protesters with the Gendarmes involved in those incidents. More than 9 arrests have taken place. Thank you for your prayers.

In Madagascar the opposition known as TGV is calling for major protest on March 10, 2009. This has become very serious because the military has now split in two. March 10th will be a very important development in all of this instability. The underlying factor of it all is the economy and poverty of the people. Madagascar will appreciate your prayers.

From DLB:
Please pray for Nona Freeman.

-Sister Nona Freeman suffered another ‘mini’ stroke Monday. Sandra called a neurologist and was able to get a same day appointment who feels she is having TIA’s [transient ischemic attack].

The symptoms are like a stroke but do not last long and occurs when blood flow to part of the brain is blocked or reduced, often by a blood clot.

After a short time, blood flows again and the symptoms go away. Her blood thinner is still being monitored which is currently 1.5 and needs to be between 2-3. She will have an MRI this week and that will tell her doctor more. Of course her faith is in the Almighty and all of us holding her up in prayer.
