I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Oh Africa, Africa....

Subject: Fw: Prayer Request from Beverly Noble
Beverly is a member of Camelback SDA church in Phoenix.
Sent: from Vera, Saskatoon, on Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

My son, Don, who is President of Maranatha Volunteers International, sent an email yesterday and we also talked by phone later in the early evening. A terrible tragedy occurred last Saturday night in Maputo, Mozambique, where a number of Maranatha projects are ongoing to build churches in that area. Maranatha hired a man to be the night watchman to secure the shop where they kept the big trucks and equipment. On Sat. night some people came, blindfolded this man, shot him in the head and dumped his body in the water tank. Then they stole the trucks and the equipment needed for work on these church buildings.

This man was a church member and he leaves behind a wife and 6 children. I asked Don how this lady is going to survive and care for her large family. He said he doesn't know. At least for right now Maranatha is helping them, but, of course, they can't keep this up forever. She certainly needs our prayer support.

The other Maranatha employees, as well as the Maranatha volunteers who are working there right now, are devastated. They all need our prayers.
