Youssef thanks you for praying
Tue, 30 Oct 2007
Youssef is still in Abidjan. He might fly out tomorrow night. The doctor in Ghana said he must come right away. So he might go Friday, if tomorrow doesn't work out. I prayed for another Lebanese in hospital with cancer on Saturday. Rabiya can barely move, with cancer in his kidney and coming out from his arms and head. He wants to go to Burkina Faso to see his 85 year old mother and brother before he dies.
Heavenly Father, help these two men to trust in You for salvation and to travel safely this week. Give the doctors wisdom in Ghana. Strengthen Rabiya to survive the flight or drive to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
Youssef asks for more prayer
Tue, 23 Oct 2007
Youssef hopes to fly to Ghana Saturday to visit an international worker doctor there. The doctor plans to remove some of the lung cancer through a tube down Youssef's throat. He appreciates your prayers for him. Some of his symptoms are getting better. He is no longer coughing blood.
Heavenly Father, we trust You for Youssef's physical and spiritual healing. Give him faith to move the ragged mountains in his life.
Pray for healing

Youssef got some real bad news last week. He was having trouble and went in for a physical. The doctors found borderline diabetes, high cholesterol and cancer in his left lung. The cancer appears to be from an accidental radiation exposure when he was repairing an x-ray machine two years ago. He is in his 40s with two children.
Heavenly Father, we ask You to remove this inoperable cancer from Youssef. Encourage him as he claims to trust in You alone for salvation. Give Him great insight and comfort as he studies Your Word.
Laylat al-Qadr (The Night of Power) is on one of the odd last ten nights of Ramadan (19,21,23,25,27,29). It is considered the holiest night of Ramadan. The Night of Power marks the date of the revelation of the first verses of the Qur'an to the Prophet Muhammad. It is believed by some Muslims that if one offers voluntary worship on that night, all past sins are forgiven.
Dear Jesus use dreams and visions to reveal Your power as the only Savior of the world to those who are seeking forgiveness. Forgive their sins as they trust in You.
Sue's Bible studies
Tue, 02 Oct 2007
Sue is praising God for two Bible studies. Three weeks ago she started attending a Bible study with about 5 other international worker women. It is very encouraging for Sue to study with these young international workers. Today was her first time to study with Nadine, a young Lebanese woman. It worked out well for them to read a devotional together in French.
Praise You Heavenly Father for giving Sue this strong desire of her heart. Make it possible for these two studies to continue every week.
