Mike and Sue Wish You a Happy Thanksgiving

We are ever so grateful to have you on our prayer team. This Thanksgiving we thank God for your love, prayers and friendship. May God give you great family times together this week! Please keep our fellow Cote d'Ivoire international workers in your prayers. They remain in Dakar, praying through the difficult decisions that need to be made during the next couple of weeks.


Thank you for praying for our international workers in Cote d'Ivoire. Most of them were able to fly out of Abidjan today. They will take a two-week retreat at Dakar Academy in Senegal. Pray for Craig and Marilyn Hanscome, as they remain in Cote d'Ivoire, near the Ghana border. Pray for a peaceful solution to the political unrest. More than 6,000 foreigners were evacuated in five days. The UN believes an additional 5,000 or more Ivorians fled over the border to Liberia.


The situation in Cote d'Ivoire today is much worse than when I wrote you last week. For more news about the situation in Cote d'Ivoire this week, go to these Yahoo News search pages: and

Please pray for the safety of our international workers and friends. The situation is very complicated. The UN and France are making every effort to calm the protesters and protect those in danger.


We all are eagerly waiting for the final election returns. It is about 10 PM Tuesday night. May God give us a better man to lead the USA than we deserve! The last three weeks in Cote d'Ivoire have been very difficult. There were a number of major setbacks in the peace process. Pray for all involved in negotiations to have patience and cool heads. Pray for Sue as she has one more week of tour ministry in NE and Kansas. She flys from Colorado to Omaha on Monday November 8th.
