On August 17th there was a scheduled nation wide vigil and protest for the Malawians who died in the protest in July. But, Praise The Lord, the UN is mediating discussions between the President and the leaders of the protest groups. The local newspaper reports that the UN mediator is encouraged by the discussions and that he expect a positive result. We are very thankful for the ongoing conversation between the two parties and we are praying for them. Please pray for the God appointed leaders in Malawi; they would have no authority without God's permission. Please pray that they would seek the one and only LORD for wisdom on how to lead this country. Please pray for the continued discussions. We are thankful for these peaceful deliberation. Thank you for praying with us.
Also please pray for Luke as he is traveling back from a youth camp this Sunday. We miss him very much and can't wait till he is home!
