Trials . . .

When we ask for prayer, we mean it.

I haven't written lately. This has been a hard time.

Just before Mother's Day, someone vandalized Andrei's apartment. They smashed two windows and slashed a screen. Nothing was taken. We are moving Andrei to another unit, but we feel uneasy.

Last Saturday night, a man entered the apartment where seven young missionaries live in Clarkston. One of the girls was alone downstairs. The man stabbed her in the neck with a knife and fled. The police think it was a gang initiation. She had surgery and lost a lot of blood, but ultimately, God protected her arteries, esophagus, and spine. Doctors say she will have a scar, but otherwise she will make a complete physical recovery.

Please pray for the other missionaries in her group as they try to come to terms with what happened. Also pray for the refugee community. They are very fearful now.

All of us are stunned and shocked by the violence in our community. Pray that the Lord of the Harvest will protect His laborers in the field.
