She shares for prayer – My prayer request is for the Spirit to open my eyes to openings and opportunities for spiritual conversations in my relationships with non believers and greater boldness to speak God’s truth.
I am still studying the language, so prayers for growth in my learning. Prayer for my family and I. We’re grieving the loss of my mother’s two siblings this month. It’s particularly difficult because it means all of my mother’s family is now deceased. I am feeling very sad because my uncle lived with my family for most of my childhood years when I was an elementary school age child.
