Dear Lord, Bless Mike and Sue Farho with Joshua and John with all that they need to pastor your flock in Abidjan and in the neighboring communities.

In Jesus' Name. Amen! Love, Susie

So sorry to hear this. What a tragedy. There is a guard that I work with who also lost his son this Sunday in a car accident. Two months ago his daughter died of cancer. I am going to the funeral tomorrow. Praying that I will be able to help him somehow. He is not a believer. Take care and be careful. None of us knows when we will go, do we? Marilyn

We certainly will be praying for this woman and your family also. Our hearts goes out to her. God Bless. Carrie and Don

Dear Lord, We pray that Ali's girlfriend would hear the Gospel message and that you would use Mike and Sue to share Your love with her. I pray that you would soften her heart and that she would be open to the Gospel. We thank you for using Mike, Sue and their boys Lord, to reach out to others who are in need of Your love and mercy. I don't know this Lebanese woman but I pray for her salvation and the salvation of many other Lebanese people. In Jesus name, Amen

This breaks my heart. I stand in agreement of the prayer for this young lady and for the protection for your family. Donna

Yes, I trust that we can here at Old Cheney Alliance Church, conduct focused prayer for the Muslim world during Ramadan. I have contacted YWAM here for details about the DVD and the 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World. The Lord bless, Bob

Mike, Sue, and Family,Thank-you for the e-mail I will pray along with you on the 30 day prayer Journey. May the Lord continue to use Mike and Sue mightily as they minister to the people in Cote Ivory. May many come to know Christ as their Savior as Mike and Sue continue to share the good news of our King by the power of the Holy Spirit. Please continue to pray for the revival in Des Moines Iowa with Ann Graham Lotz. Pray that the Lord will draw people to himself, and that many will come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior of their life. May you always stay In Love with Jesus and continue praising his name! Thank-you father for your son Jesus. In Christ Jesus Tammy

Praise the Lord for all that the Lord is doing in Lebanon with the Lebanese church. The news on the TV is not good. Seems to be getting worse not better.

So glad to hear from you; we will pray for the coming of Ramon and Maria. Also, your study of Lebanese language.
Much love from Art W. in Omaha, Nebraska

Tue, 11 Jul 2006

God must have a reason for the delay of Ramon and Maria's visit. In the meantime, you are busily carrying on the Lord's work, learning Arabic, and glorifying His Name! God Bless you!

I can't resist replying to this. When our daughter Rachel was a young teenager she was going to be President of the U.S., a jockey (horse) and on the weekends an interior decorator. She's a nurse, married with two teen agers of her own. Thanks for the updates.

I can imagine that Arabic is pretty hard to learn, but it sounds like you are doing well with it. Keep up the good work! God Bless!
Love and prayers, Dorothy

Lord, Father in heaven,
Give the Farho's vision and strength today. Give Sue wisdom as she homeschools Joshua. I pray the women that Sue meets with will have hearts that are open and the Men that Mike meets with too will be open and desire to understand your word!! Thank you that your word changes lives and it is not up to us!! Thanks that your word convicts us of what is right and wrong. Keep John safe today and until he gets home. Let no harm come to him!! Protect John and help him to feel your joy and peace even as he is in War. Thanks for prayer and your forever listening ear! Amen
Stephanie in Omaha, Nebraska

I am glad you are learning the language of the people. I know the older you get the harder to learn new languages but you are STILL young so I am sure you will succeed. I will pray for your success. Joshua can teach you!!!!!!

I in no way envy you trying to learn another language. I have trouble remembering a few Spanish words from my co worker. Lord give them clarity of mind and the ability to remember and recall what they have learned.
AMEN. Terry

We praise our God because of your willingness, even eagerness to live and work so far from all that is familiar and comfortable. And we thank you. May HE use you to bless others and be an instrument in His hands for the Kingdom.
Joe and Ruth in Omaha, Nebraska

Well, it's O.K. for Joshua to change the team he's cheering for, but we are SO thankful that the Lord never gives up on us, when we fail! Praise God that you and Sue are cheer leaders for the Lebanese, and God will never fail them, or us! God Bless you!

Looking forward to the World Cup. Cote d'Ivoire will play Argentina on Saturday and they will play my team (The Netherlands) on the 16th. Group C is the unfortunate group this World Cup. Argentina will be a tough team to beat.

Praying also that this World Cup will bring the people of Cote d'Ivoire together.

I remember bringing our youth to Côte d'Ivoire and engaging in a football match in the dust, with that ragged ball and poles for goals and smiles to light up the approaching dusk. May God use sport in Côte d'Ivoire and in Josh!

Let's pray: Heavenly Father, thank You for the ministry of the Farho's. Continue to keep them safe, secure in Your loving arms. Give them open doors for sharing Jesus and let hearts be receptive and lives changed. Thank You for Mike's devotion to You and the great ideas he comes up with for prayer. May You honor his desire.

The Lord has shown his faithfulness to me. Thank you for your prayers and concerns. They have been a huge encouragement and given me strength.
