Some of you have asked what you can do for us. . . I’m keeping a list of who you are so I WILL let you know!  ALL of you can pray for us. . .please pray for God’s will, above all.  We are also humbly asking God for the following:

1. That God will give Jeremy favor in the eyes of his fellow soldiers – he will be a one-man operation trying to integrate into a very tight-knit group of soldiers

2. That God would provide Jeremy spiritual food, Christian fellowship and discipleship when he is gone

3. That both Jeremy and I would have sensitive hearts to opportunities to minister and share the gospel

4. That we would learn well the lessons God has ordained for us in all this

5. That our time before Jeremy leaves would be sweet and memorable

6. That Jeremy and I would both trust God to do ALL things well, including protecting Jeremy

7. That we would trust and fear God more than anything else

8. That Elijah and Merry would be as little affected as possible

9. That I would handle the separation with grace and strength
