Spending a week with these ladies gave me a treasure trove money can never buy! My sister's and I took my mom to Wisconsin to visit her 4 siblings, ages 95- 78. We had a lot cold rainy weather but this day I prayers for sun, a few hours to walk around our old place I haven't seen in 53 years. There are more bushes and trees on the hills we explored but the old dented culvert we played on at the creek was still there!

*Andrew (name changed for security) is an Afghan teenage believer from the Pashtun tribe with a death threat on his life to join the Taliban. During the US evacuation last summer he was separated from his family and fled Afghanistan which landed him up in Istanbul Turkey illegally where he was rescued by our own A n B couple.took Andrew into their home and have been working on getting him the documentation he needs to reunite with his family and go to the US for school. Last week while A n B were out in eastern Turkey, the police located Andrew in Istanbul, took him into custody and moved him to another eastern city in what appears to be a deportation effort. Andrew is currently in a city near the Iran border
Would you urgently join us in praying (and mobilizing prayer) that the Lord would intervene and rescue Andrew from being deported or abducted and returned back to A n B's home. Let’s pray that the plans the Lord has for Andrew’s life would be fulfilled!
Urgent message from Afghanistan.
