Yesterday, Laurence Thomas Mansaray aka Lil Roo (affectionately known as ROO HOO by Mama Vicki) was 3 years old. Today his family will celebrate this milestone with a picnic at the beach.
We ask for your prayers in the following situations.
  1. Keep James in Freetown in your prayers, his left arm has become somewhat numb with burning sensations in the fingertips along with involuntary twitching of the fingers. Since there are no other symptoms for more serious conditions, we are assuming he has some nerve damage.
  2. Little Chloe of Athens Georgia, 2 years old, begins chemotherapy for Leukemia on Monday. This will be an extended ordeal lasting up to 6 months. Please keep Chloe and her family in your prayers.
  3. The upcoming mission trip to Sierra Leone is fast approaching this month. Your prayers are the wings of such a project.
