Please pray for Josep Willis

Dear Praying Friends:

As you already know, the Wusuraambya church has been through many trials during these last months. Because of the attacks against Willis, Jesi, and their family, both Willis and Jesi have stepped down from teaching responsibilities until things settle down a bit. The situation with Lucy has been difficult for all of them too. While she is safe for the moment she lives in hiding and in fear of the man who abducted her last week. 

This has been a very difficult time for Willis especially who understands that as believers we have become Satan’s enemies and will be tried and tempted throughout our earthly lives. Satan is determined to make us ineffective for the Kingdom. But being on the front lines and under constant fire can wear down even the strongest of believers.

Last night we invited Willis and Kena over with the kids to encourage them in their walk with the Lord. While they were here, Josep was the center of attention, but sadly not because of his fun and lively character, but because he is quite sick with diarrhea or dysentery.  Pray that we can get the medicines needed into little Josep without him vomiting them all back up again.  Pray for some relief from the variety of trials that this family has had to endure lately. The Lord who set Lucy free in seemingly impossible circumstances last week can also bring healing to Josep and his family.  Pray for encouragement for the church as a whole too. God is still in control and able to help them through every trial that they experience.  Thanks for your continuing prayers for the Wusuraambya church.
