If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

First Night of Prayer Requests

Ok, for praying people, some prayers along the lines of physical challenges first:
  • Ginny and Lori will be seeing at least one patient with TB. Pray for their protection.
  • There is an outbreak of lice at the compound where they're staying. Again, pray for protection.

Now, on a vocational front:
  • Ginny asked specifically that you pray that she and Lori are not underused. She wants to work long, hard, and with lots of patients. There is some apparent reticence on the part of the coordinators to "burn them out." They're there to "burn out" (in a good way). My assumption is that the coordinator does not quite know what they are capable of because that person is not the regular administrator of the clinic. Pray they are used long past their abilities and strength so that they depend wholly on God.
  • Relatedly, the administrator of the clinic has had to quit and YWAM needs a long-term person or family to come and stay, administrating the clinic and orchestrating care for the thousands they serve. Pray for them to find that person or family.
