Please continue to be in prayer for Ugandan Missionary, Meredith Byrd, who is the niece of James and Amy Byrd. See her specific prayer requests and update below.

Hey Family, Friends and Prayer Partners,

I apologize if you have received this twice but I wasn’t sure who had signed up to follow my blog. This link leads you to my blog that I have just written about Uganda. Unfortunately, I could not go in much detail because I am still learning what I can and cannot share publicly. Sixty Feet, the organization I work with is here only at the government’s invitation and I would never want to compromise that.

God is working here but so is the enemy so I ask that you pray! It is easy to get discouraged because we so many sad things however I have to remember that God is still here and He is in control.

I have a few things I would ask you to pray specifically for:

Lucy- A Ugandan nurse on staff with us has Leukemia and needs radiation however the only radiation machine in Uganda is broken so we are praying that we can get her somewhere else to receive treatment.

Ambrose’s Dad- Ambrose is also Ugandan and he told us today that his surrogate father is in the hospital and not doing well.

Please join me in praying for these two specific situations!

Thank you all for praying!!

Because of your prayers I am able to do the work God has called me here to do!
