I have two requests now that we are back from Africa. Each has to do with a missionary that we are closely mentoring.
First, pray for Rolf Weichardt and the Youth for Christ ministry of South Africa. Audits of local ministry centers have uncovered some issues that must be addressed. Those who are responsible are vowing to bring down the organization. The new leadership of YFC has decided to return to the emphasis of evangelism that YFC was founded upon. Social concern had been the focus in the previous leadership. Rolf is under tremendous pressure. Please pray for him as he returns YFC to its roots of evangelism.
Second, pray for Emelio Gassibe, Center Director for Cape Town YFC, and his brother Stan. In the words of Emelio, my brother Stanley has been diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure. Doctors advised an emergency operation by Tuesday and later immediate dialysis in order to save his life. The operation costs at least R30 000 and thereafter an amount of R13 000 per month until a suitable donor is found. Please pray for the funds needed and a suitable donor for Stan.
Your faithful prayers will work miracles. Thank you.
