Praise that through Christmas parties and personal time many of Ashley’s local friends have heard the gospel this season. Pray that God will use what they have heard to draw them to Christ. Praise also that another semester of language study is completed and her ability in the language is improving. Praise that she is highly motivated to learn. Pray for her as she travels to Thailand this month to attend a conference, and pray for wisdom as she considers a new opportunity to study in her current city.
