Praise for Hiroko’s recovery from her recent illness, and pray for her to regain her strength. Pray for Roger attending the thrice-yearly field Leadership Council meetings today and tomorrow. Pray they will see God’s plans for the year ahead. Pray also for pressures on the aftercare home ministry, including one girl’s serious illness, attempts to thwart another girl’s court testimony, license renewal for the home, and a quarrelsome neighbor next to their recently-purchased land site causing problems. Pray for wisdom, grace and favor with authorities in dealing with these problems. Pray also for harmony among the team of women working at the aftercare home under much pressure.
