Remembering

Hello! God bless YOU. Along the way, I’m sure you’ve heard this bible verse, “The righteous perish, and no-one ponders it in his heart…” Isa.57:1

Last week I told you I had friends who were close to two of the doctors who were murdered by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

You have probably heard news stories by now but I asked my friends in Delhi, who personally knew a couple of these dedicated humanitarian workers to share a bit about them.

“Yes we knew Tom Little, the Ophthalmologist from our visit to Kabul in 1991. We then met them again at the “Donut” Church as Tom affectionately called the international church in New Delhi. For the Little’s, Delhi was the “modern” city compared to Kabul. Tom was a hard working, never tiring worker, who poured out his life for the Afghan people. They always had people in their home and have been a beacon of light to the Afghan people for more than 30 years living out their faith in quiet service to the people through war after war. Heaven is richer, we miss Tom.” G.W.

“Dan Terry was married to Saija, a Finish woman, and they have three daughters as well. Dan grew up in India and Afghanistan as a child where his parents were workers for many years. Dan was a bridge to the forgotten people of the country of Afghanistan, connecting funds and resources from governments and Aid organizations bringing water and health. When we asked Saija once about their living conditions in M.S., a Taliban stronghold, I said that it sounds like they were camping, she responded without a beat saying that their whole life had been one long camping trip. Well, Dan now lives in a home, one made by God himself! We are still waiting. Please remember the family members, their hearts are torn between heaven and earth!” G.W.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Eph.6:12

Prayer is not ‘the least we can do’ if this bible verse is true, then praying is one of the most strategic things you and I can do!

Therefore, can you and I pray for Afghanistan every day for a season? It’s time to: PUSH, Pray-Until-Something-Happens.

If you’re not signed on to the Afghan Prayer Patrol, this tool makes daily prayer a ready-to-go activity:

Sending you love as we REMEMBER and press in to fight the good fight!
