Praise & Prayer Requests


We praise God for a great visit with our son Philippe and his wife Brenna. Here are a few photo highlights:

Debbie hangs ten!

We’re now in Australia with our daughter, Heidi, our son-in-law Petter and our grandsons, Hudson and Sawyer and to experience the joys and challenges of caring for a very active three-year-old as well as a one-year-old.

Praise in Chad: We praise the Lord for the progress of construction of the new surgical center. Hopefully, we will open it in January.

Another praise item is the 40-foot container from Samaritan’s Purse full of medical supplies and also equipment needed for our new solar power system is now in N’Djamen.

And since there hasn’t been any rain in a few days, Bollore may be able to get it to Guinebor in the next day or two. Another 20-foot container arrives in a month.

We praise the Lord for blessing this project in so many ways!

May many more souls be saved over many years at this spiritual and medical oasis in a very dark land.

Prayer Requests:

My problem knee prevents many normal activities related to activities. I had an MRI of my knee this week in Brisbane so maybe a decision can finally be made concerning surgery or not. If yes, it will be done in SC.

Please also pray for the team at the hospital in Chad. There’s a team of two full-time Chadian doctors and three short-term doctors during our absence as well as a staff of eighty nationals.

We also need prayer for the patients and the 20-foot container to be able to make it to the hospital despite heavy rains that have made it difficult for anyone to make it to the hospital.

These are our praise and prayer items for now.
Bert & Debbie
