Missionary Kevin Pestke, Zambia

He asks prayer for their language studies, new Bible school location and the right people to begin it with, his family to be a good testimony in the community, and for God to be glorified as they truly try to lift up the name of Jesus. The Pestkes live next to a large Mosque and Islamic school who no doubt have a disdain to the Pestkes and Who they stand for. To his requests, lets also pray for their safety as they recently had 2 baseball sized rocks thrown over the fence at their house damaging the roof.

Dan asks prayer for the orphan children and their teachers who started the new school year today (Monday, Jan 31st). Also, pray for safety during the national elections being held in February. And lastly, he asks prayer for the construction team (including Dan’s parents) going to serve with them at the end of February as they will be focused on replacing a damaged roof.

Please pray for our dear friends the Hillmans- from the Mitchell’s

Bro Billy,

Please be in prayer for our friends Ron & Ann. There are the friends that Nat helped move to Texas 2 yrs ago. They are the same friends that gave me my office furniture. If appropriate, please add this to the prayer chain. Also be praying for Nat because he’s still reeling from Charles passing and this will definitely knock the wind out of his sails but I know the Lord will carry us all through. Thanks!

Love ya,

Wanda Tippens

Wanda Tippens, long time member here at Grace, was in Alabama to take care of her sister after surgery. During her sleep Wanda had some type of seizure and had quit breathing for a moment. Her husband drove to pick her up and bring her home as she is not to drive for 6 months, if she does not have any more seizures. She is scheduled to meet with a neurologist tomorrow (Tuesday). Please pray for her during this trying time; wisdom for the doctors; that she will not get discouraged over this situation; and most of all that she will not have any more seizures. Doctors have told her not to be alone for a while (which is impossible).

Wanda asked prayer for her dad in Tennessee who has pneumonia. Doctor’s have found a spot on his lung. He is scheduled to have a PET scan tomorrow (Tuesday). Also, pray for her sister in Alabama recovering after a successful surgery. She is in the expected pain but does not have any family to help her neither does she have a church home, yet (though Wanda says she is born-again). These are burdens to Wanda who wants to be with each of them taking care of them but cannot at this time.

Here is Wanda’s address to send her a card to let her know you are praying for her and her family:

5243 Nora Drive ~ Douglasville, GA 30135

Prayer for Michael Keim

Please pray for Helen Vanegas and her son Michael Keim. Michael has been placed on the transplant list at Duke University Hospital in NC. Michael will have two transplants, lungs and bone marrow. The hospital is making final preparation for them now and Helen is expecting a call any time to go. Helen covets your prayers in holding her up as Ruben will be able to go for the surgery but will have to keep his work schedule here. Also, pray for their physical needs, the surgeries, lodging and transportation.
