Please pray that our benevolent colonel, who has kept the peace in our town and mission so well since March, will not be transferred to another city this week. His replacement arrived a couple of days ago, and there have been quiet protests by the general public and the government officials, and we have made calls to the regional governor and the Minister of Defense in the capital. We are hopeful because God is BIG, but not optimistic (to quote some missionary friends), because we hear that the replacement is a family member of someone in the very highest position in the gov’t. Please pray, pray, pray!!!
