Please pray for Abdul! I met him in Haiti on my list trip. He was apart of the YWAM team that was visiting Jubilee! He was raised in Niger and his father was a high ranking official. Abdul was raised as a Muslim but has converted to Christianity. His family has disowned him and he had traveled to France and went through intense bible training with the YWAM organization. His plan was to find permanent residence in France but they have denied him residence. His country is not safe for him but he has to go back there to get a new passport. He felt God leading him to join the ministry team at the school in Jubilee while he was there visiting. He messaged me this morning and said he can not get Jubilee out of his thoughts and feels that God wants to use him there!! I’m SOOO excited to see what God does! Pray for Abdul’s safety as he tries to return to his country to get paperwork in order! Also pray that all the paperwork goes smoothly and quickly! I KNOW God will answer this prayer because God has called him to serve and spread the gospel!

Alex just told me she had a lady who practices voodoo tell her she was going to kill her by “ Magic” and harm her family! I know this is not something we “ see” or deal with much here but it is a tool of Satan and it is very common in Haiti. The enemy shows his power through this often. Alex knows God has the ultimate power and she is claiming His truths! Please join me in prayer about this.
