News from Uruguay

JP:  Three months ago, BWM Uruguayan missionaries, Barry and Barbara Secrest, had an accident in their Volkswagon “Combi” van. This was mentioned as a prayer need on 4BYA here.

I received news today from Barry Secrest via Paul Harmon that Julia passed away.

Dear Prayer Supporters,

Thank you so much for your three months of prayer on Julia´s behalf. It was almost as if she had planned it, but three months to the exact date of the accident, Julia is with the Lord this afternoon, 9th of February, 2009. We know, of course, who planned it this way. It gave Jonathan and Ana, her children, a little time to adjust to the idea of her death. It is a blessing to see how God worked out all of these things. Now, we have a new set of prayers to raise:

  1. Pray for the family in this time of grieving.
  2. Pray for Jonathan, Julia´s son, as he begins his pastoral studies in March.
  3. Pray that Ana, not a saved young woman, will not try to take us to court over this accident. This is a real possibility and would be hurtful to all. Jonathan and Paul will both side with Barb and I, but it would be awful to have to go through the process. Pray that God will calm her heart.

Thank you, again, for your financial and prayer support over this emergency. Everyone else is well.
