Praise God for the ten medevac flights MAF were able to do in the last two weeks. Their youngest patient was a two-day-old baby boy! Praise God for the growth of the church in Timor-Leste. This week MAF flew the adult children of missionaries who worked here in 1963, when it is believed that there were only four Protestant believers in the whole country. Today there are thousands! Continue to pray for wisdom, creativity and energy for Jason and Kim as they serve in Timor-Leste, and as they parent Sam and seek to listen to the Lord’s direction each day.

Russ and Ruth Keanalley (ex-Thailand, DPG Day 26)
Praise God for the judgment handed down last Thursday in relation to the claim of a neighbour for damage caused during the construction of the Phrasiri church building. The church was cleared of all responsibility. The building contractor was found solely responsible, and ordered to pay a total for the damage caused, which was less than one fifth of the extortionate amount claimed by the neighbour. (It should be noted that the claimant is open to appeal the judgment.
