Prayer Request

I would like to ask you all for prayer for the Kevin Bruce family. They are serving the Lord in Ecuador and are currently going through a trial as one of the men they have worked with was brutally killed in a fight last week. Tribal superstitions surround them, and the relatives of the murdered man are thirsty for revenge. Please pray that the Lord would give the Bruces strength, encouragement, and wisdom during this time. Pray for the light of God's Word to go forth and penetrate into this darkness, and that many people would come to Christ in the midst of this situation.

The story is given in more detail on their blog:

"Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you" (2 Thessalonians 3:1).

This reminds me of the circumstances the Ritchard family found themselves in in Papua New Guinea not so long ago.
