Serious Prayer Request

We talked to Allen this afternoon, Scott's uncle and our co-worker for the past six years here in Africa. Allen has been experiencing a small amount of dizziness and some short term memory loss the last few months. He thought it was the stress of ministry, but he went to the doctor. They have diagnosed him with a Glioma type tumor in the interior of his brain. Consequently, they have cancelled all of their upcoming plans to Zambia and Zimbabwe, secured a flight, and will be in Houston on Wednesday to get the best care available. He was in good spirits, but said it was such a shock.

This is not the Monday morning news that any of us wanted, but we do serve an awesome God. Please pray for this godly couple who have spent forty years serving God in Africa.




  1. Oh, Lisa, we'll be praying!

  2. Thanks so much for your prayers. We all really appreciate it!

  3. Thanks for your prayers, Patty. We are hoping to know more on Friday.
