Special Prayer Request 

We are so grateful to our Father that everyone was safe after the recent mudslide that damaged the homes and classrooms in Hengyang. Pray that the children will continue to be settled in their temporary living places and that the construction of the new building can be finished sooner than planned. We want to settle the children into their new, permanent homes as soon as possible.
