Pray that the whole church will be unified in decisions and direction, as we look for a new pastor.Also, Tim, a previous member of our camp staff (who hada great input and impact on camp), has just had a double heart attack.

On 26 March Trevor and Manoli put down a holding deposit on a property in Ribadeo, which now gives them three months to get together the rest of the money for the purchase price. Please pray for the quick sale of the apartment they presently have, which they are using for the meetings. The newproperty, once purchased and renovated, will give them more room for the church plant, as well as having a place in a key area for youth work and for outreach to the pilgrims who come from all over the world to do the Camino (Way) walk to Santiago.

They have only been recompensed for two of the 20 plus cows stolen at the start of the year. Pray for Esther who broke her foot a couple of months ago and healing is very slow — it was a bad break. Pray for Peter who had shoulder surgery recently and is finding recovery painful too. Pray for swift healing for both of them.
