I will post frequently how you can pray for me, the St. Joseph Peruvian Mission and people of Piura. Check back for updates.
- Pray for Martin & Cristinia that God blesses them with new life.
- Pray for Sandeep, Rani, and Aleksei as they all discern where God is calling them.
- And pray for Fr. Henry and his parish and parishioners in Dallas, Texas that they stay strong and steadfast in their focus of shifting from maintenance to mission at their parish. May each and every person at St. Ann’s encounter Jesus and say yes, I will follow you Lord.
Saturday, June 15: Pray for my protection and ask Our Lady & St. Michael to be with me and protect me in my work and my sleep, in all my comings and goings.
Friday, June 14: Pray for strength and comfort for my new friend, Luis who six months ago lost his wife after 46 years of marriage. He’s very lonely without her, but exudes so much joy, as he’s a man of great faith.
For Isabelle, who arrived as I was walking out of the clinic for the day to shower for mass. I heard God say, one more. Her husband abandoned her for another woman. She came in stoic and emotionless. Then after prayer the flood gates opened. My ministry was giving her the space for another to see her tears and pain for the next half hour. There was no shower before mass. The one phrase in Spanish I say often is “Lo siento” – I’m sorry. I know that heartache and it happens a lot here in Peru just like home. Pray the Lord grants her strength and comfort to her very broken heart.
