Ibarra Church-plant 40/40:
I have been diagnosed Multiple Sclerosis and have been using a powerful oral drug called Fingolimod. God has answered the prayer request that my body would not reject the treatment and I wouldn't suffer from any bad side effects. I have been on the drug for two months now, I have had minimal side effects but have had them. My prayer request now is that no new side effects would surface, for the provision to be able to pay for the drugs when I get State-side, and God to guide me in the process of finding insurance.
Please continue to pray for my finances. Praise God, He has been supplying: my $3500 in the red has gone down to $2000.
Ambato, Ecuador Church-plant:
Continue to pray that a solution could be found in regard to the stalling of construction of the church building. Construction has not seen any progress since late October of last year. Currently, we are dealing with a city policy that requires either a waiver that would allow a continuation with the current construction plans, or for new plans to be drawn and a starting over of the process entirely. Please pray that the church will receive the waiver and be permitted to begin again soon.
Pray for unity and strength for the pastoral family and church leaders as they transitioning into this new phase of the ministry without the missionaries on the ground.
