Dave Mann, Todd Mann, Lee and DeAnna DeTurk, and three others are in Kenya for baseball ministry now through June 24. The team is being hosted by Charles Kinyanjui and Joel Mapesa. Pray for the children whose lives are being touched through this team.

Update On Paul De Merchant

Prayer Request:

Update on Paul De Merchant: Joan De Merchant states, “The time has come to update all of you faithful friends and prayer warriors. Paul will be discharged Wednesday, June 19. It is a bit scary for me to think of being his full-time care giver. Don't quit praying because he is coming home. He has come a long way, but has a long way to go. He can walk with a walker and grip with his hand, but fine things and lifting a spoon or fork to his mouth with the right hand and arm are still a challenge and difficult effort. Physical therapy and occupational therapy will come to the house two to three times a week. Pray for strength for both of us. Bless each of you for your love and care.”

Prayer Requested For Mr. Bah

Prayer Request:

The Guinea Team requests prayer for their good friend Mr. Bah, who serves as a part-time driver and helper for the team. Pray that Mr. Bah, his wife, Maimuna, and their children would come to know Christ and that they would have the courage to turn from their ancestral religion to follow Him. Pray also that Mr. Bah’s eyes would heal as he has issues with them. The Guinea Team also reports that two of the patients Dawn took to be seen by the doctor were evaluated, cared for, and returned home. The third patient received significant surgery and continues to recover at the hospital. The child also had surgery and is recovering. Pray the healing continues to go well.
