News from Gomer: May 2012

Dear Friends,
Today I come with a very special prayer request from Mitch*.
He has traveled north in Ghana to the village of Nalerigu where he spent his childhood.  His Senior Uncle, the man he will call his father, is very sick.  His name is Matt*, he is more than 100 years old.  I have met this unclue, and he is a very kind and gentle man.  He has taken in and raised so many young children that would have been lost in the world had this man not taken them in.   He is a small man, but he is held in very high regard and looked up to by many in the village.
Praise God,  he accepted Christ as his Savior some time back.  He has not shied from sharing his faith in both word and deed.  He has touched many lives.
When Mitch* called today he requested that I would ask you all to pray for his father and for his family.  His father is in his last hours, he is sleeping now and Mitch* said it is just a matter of time till he goes to be with his Savior.  He asked that we pray for comfort and peace for his father as he passes from this life to a new life in heaven.  He asked for prayer for the family, that they will find comfort during this time of loss.  Pray that this will be a time when many of his family will see God's Love in the peace his father has in his last hours.  Pray that Mitch* will be strong and be a pillar of comfort to his family during this time of grief and loss.
As I talked with him today, I could hear the sadness in his voice.  Please pray for him during this sad time in his life.
Thank you for all your prayers, and love for Mitch* and his family.
 God Bless you all.
