Prayer Update

Thank you all for your prayers. The latest update we have on Faiza is that she is eating food and recognizing people more consistently. The surgery on her collarbone was one week ago and all went well from what we have heard.

We are doing fine, I helped Joe drill several days within the past two weeks in a village about 60 miles outside of the city. We are using the technique that I learned in Bolivia summer 2005.

As the day approaches we are excited about PTI and all the Lord appears to be doing here in Ethiopia. My primary reason for writing this brief update is to inform you of specific situations that are currently happening here in Ethiopia. One specific place where we hope that a church will be planted is in a city called Jigjiga. The other circumstance is in the southern part of the country close the border with Kenya.

Please read the highlighted links for complete understanding.
Thanks to you all again!

On Sunday, while we were returning from preaching at a national denomination
gathering, Yoseph, Joe, and I came upon a young (about 10) girl who had been
run over by a car. The driver had left the scene and there were hundreds of
people gathered around. Two guys flagged us down and told us what had
happened, so we put the girl in the truck with her older brother and two of
his friends and proceeded to the hospital. She was motionless, unconscious,
and bleeding from the massive gashes on her face and head. Her torso was
skinned from her hips to her chest.
We left her at the military hospital, which was the closest one to the
scene. Later in the day on Sunday they moved her to the large public
hospital and performed surgery to stop the internal bleeding. Monday, she
remained comatose but the doctors were hopeful for her recovery.
Twenty-four hours before there had been little hope, other than God healing
her. The driver did turn himself in to the police later in the evening,
stating that he was fearful of being beaten to death by the mob that always
gathers following these type of accidents.
We have had contact with the driver and he has mentioned concern for his
soul, so please pray that we can maintain contact and that the Lord would be
pleased to use us in his life.

Tuesday morning when we called to check on Faiza, her family informed us
that she had come out of the coma and begun to speak. An amazing miracle
really, two days before I was not sure if she would live or not and now
awake and communicating. Please pray with us for her, she is from a Muslim
family. I will update again soon.
