Prayer Requests

July 2019 Thank the Lord that we are settled well here!  He has graciously provided us with a wonderful apartment, a car, a great church family, and fulfilling and exciting work with TWR.  We are so thankful!

Please continue to pray for Daryl as he oversees transmitting locations in this region; that they would be able to accurately tell if the signals are reaching where intended.  Please also pray for Carol in her role on the recruiting team - that God would bring more missionary staff into service with TWR around the world.

Thank you so much!

Prayer Requests

Please pray for Daryl as he continues to oversee technical aspects in the Europe, Middle East and Central Asian regions.  He is struggling with reports of poor signal reception in a number of areas and needs to figure out how, why and what is causing these reports.  Please also pray for us relationally with the various people God has placed in our lives.
