 Stella wishes to say thank you for your prayers for her great-grandson Elijah, who is waiting for surgery on his 2 month old heart, and for Rhys with his broken foot. Both are making good progress, but please continue to pray! Please pray for John & Nicolette as well as Colin & Stella. Pray that their weddings would be beautiful and joyous occasions, and that their marriages would be strong, and healthy, and honouring to the Lord. In July, the Alliance work in Quito, Ecuador will lose a facility in which it has been housing 40+ children who’s parents are currently in prison. This ministry seeks to show and teach the tangible love of Jesus, but needs $330,000 to purchase its own facilities. Please pray.
