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.

Okay so the place where we just built the duplex last week and where I went in May as a part of a team doing mobile health clinics was struck by Cholera this week.  Trent has been in contact with the Nurse Practitioner on the missionary base and he said it was critical.  There are thousands of people very sick and hundreds have died in the last 2 days.

1. Pray that God will bring aid to these people quickly
2. Pray for the health care providers and missionaries over there that they would remain healthy
3. Pray that God would use this to draw people to himself

Terry Snow the director of the organization we worked with has seen incredible ministry opportunities come out of the earthquake.  Pray that this opens doors for more ministry as his team tries to serve the people of St. Marc.

You can see the story HERE from CNN
