Pray

I just received a call from J asking for prayer.  I will try to make this understandable without going into too much detail. The main point though is to pray. A few days ago Robert was driving to town and found an elderly woman trying to hang herself on the side of the road.  This was because another man had taken her land away from her and instead of starving to death she was going to just kill herself.  Robert took the woman back to the compound and talked through the situation.  The team decided that they would try to appease the man by paying him a debt that he said he was owed and was why he took the land.  So the team tried to pay what the man wanted so he would leave the woman alone, but the man refused the money.  It is obvious that he is just in this to take the land.  He has not legal way of getting the land and the police are on the side of the woman, but remember this is Africa and sometimes it does not workout the "legal" way.  J and other confronted the man and through that the man brought in a witch doctor and placed a death curse on J, the woman Longolomoi, and her son Apus.  J has nothing to fear.  He knows he is protected by the Almighty, but the woman and her son are not Christians and do not have the comfort of an all powerful God.  Here are the prayer request. J to trust God will protect him. Longolomio and Apus to accept Christ. The man who is stealing the land to be conviced by the Holy Spirit and give his life to Christ. The witch doctors spells not to work on Longolomio and Apus, and for the witch doctor to turn to Christ. Thank you for being a part of this team.  Times like this remind us that we are all in this together.  Pleas take some time and talk to the Father. Aaron
