Pray BFF#43 May 4, 2003
Dear Prayer Team,
The Lord is asking us to trust Him with all of our possessions! First it was a little computer (though crucial for ministry). Then it was the van, which is now being repaired. But early Monday morning, we thought it might be everything we own. We were at the edge of a towering inferno!
A burning wood factory sent flames up about 150 feet incinerating some houses in our neighborhood up on the cliff above it. We praise God for directing the flame away from the houses for otherwise we would have had no neighbors left! The houses are adjacent to each other on the other side of the street.
I told our children and some neighbors, we need to be prepared to leave everything at any moment. We are thankful that no one was hurt and we received absolutely no damage. Praise His Name!

Advance in Prayer!
Pastor Stephen in India needs our prayers as he targets his large area. He is starting off right but needs God's peoples help to shield them in their efforts. The total population of Vizianagaram (34 Mandals (districts)) is 22,45,103. According to 1991 census the Christian Population is a meager 7149. He has already started holding Intercessory Prayer Conferences in each district.
We need your prayers!
