Pray for Pierre's family

Thank you so much for your prayers for Pierre. I spoke with his family on Sunday, after I got the news of his death. His brother Paul thanks you for your kindness and prayers. Lift them up to the Lord as they grieve their heavy loss. Your prayers encourage us as we are so far away from our fiends in Abidjan.

Heavenly Father, we're grateful that You are there comforting this family as they grieve their loss. Give joy and faith to the children and adults who made decisions to seek full time ministry overseas last week in Des Moines. Encourage Mike and Sue as they prepare for their departure on June 4 to Tunisia. Provide all the prayer and financial support they need for their future ministry.

Pray for healing!

Downtown Abidjan
Urgent request from our Lebanese believers in Cote d'Ivoire: Please pray for our Lebanese friend, Pierre. He was evacuated from Abidjan. He is very ill in Marseilles, France. He has only one kidney. It seems that his liver and/or kidney is shutting down.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to touch and heal Pierre's body. Give his doctors wisdom. Comfort his wife and extended family during these difficult days.

What a great Easter week!

Hope your Easter celebrations were as much fun as ours. We enjoyed many meaningful services all last week. It was special to enjoy an Easter meal at my sister's house too. It won't be long and we'll be many miles from family and friends. We wish we had more time to visit everyone personally, but rejoice in these weekly moments together with you!

Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Mike, Sue and Joshua such wonderful times with family and friends in USA. Give them strength for each day.

Happy Easter!

Holy week is always one of our favorite times of the year. Jesus died and then rose from the dead! What power! As we pray for our Lebanese believers, in Abidjan and scattered around the world, it gives us great joy to know that their sins are forgiven. They put their faith in Christ alone for salvation. Jesus is worthy of our faith. As we look ahead, to our pastoral ministry in Tunisia, we are amazed. Thank you for going to North Africa with us through prayer!

Heavenly Father, we grieve with You the death of your only Son, because of our sin. Give us sensitive hearts to repent of our sins and trust in Jesus to be our holiness.

Ready for warmer weather

This week, as we shiver into April, we're already thinking about packing our suitcases for Tunisia. We still have much to do, including doctor and dentist visits that all three of us do every two years in the USA. We also need to focus our energy on raising our financial support for our next two years of ministry. You can learn more about donating toward our ministry at

Heavenly Father, make all these medical appointments to go smoothly with no negative results. Raise up faithful and generous partners to invest in the Farho's pastoral ministry in Tunisia.
