The doctor never saw a wound heal so fast
Tony Saliba thanks you and God for his continued healing. His doctor was amazed when he saw how well the wound in Tony's leg healed since last Tuesday. Tony said that your prayers are the only explanation. He asked me to thank you for praying for him. Rather than spending three weeks waiting for the wound to heal, Tony and Mimou drove home to Daloa today. Father we thank you for Tony's healing. We thank you for the way this healing encourages our faith in You alone for salvation. Continue to heal Tony. Relieve his pain. Stop any infection.

Tony's leg was crushed under a huge ladder
This week was the first time we've seen Tony and his wife Mimou in many years. They are Lebanese friends from Daloa, in the west central region of Cote d'Ivoire. Tony's leg was crushed under the huge ladder he was using to change a light bulb on an outdoor light pole. He has seven screws and a metal plate installed in his leg. His leg has a special device screwed into it, holding it straight. Dear Jesus, please heal Tony. Relieve the extreme pain. Prevent any infection.
Our 20 year old son John is coming to Abidjan to celebrate Christmas with us. He arrives on Dec. 24 at around 7 pm and leaves on Dec. 30. Dear Father, protect John as he flies out. Give us a great Christmas, before his March deployment to Iraq.

Christmas trees in the desert !
I was amazed to learn today that Christmas trees are flown into Senegal from France. They vary in size from two feet to over six feet. The most expense is only about $35. Dear Lord, open hearts and minds in Senegal to trust in the Redeemer whom we celebrate this holy season.
Only four more days and we will be home again in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Our friends there are celebrating this good news with us. Dear Father, help Mike, Sue and Joshua as they say goodbye to all their new friends in Dakar. Prepare the way as they return to Abidjan on Saturday.

Pray for George
He has a terrible case of malaria. When I talked to him on the phone, I couldn't recognize his voice. He is receiving medicine by IVs at home. Father in heaven, heal your child George. Give him wisdom.
Lynne and others have asked what our address will be in Abidjan. We are praying for Christmas cards. Will you send us one?
Here is our new address in Abidjan:
Rev. Michael Farho
01 BP 6491
If you already sent a card or package to our Dakar address, we will still get it through our fellow international workers in Dakar. Don't feel bad about cards arriving after Christmas day. After all, we live in Africa.
"For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes..." Romans 1:16
