If you get a minute to pray for us this week we would really appreciate it.
Here is our situation we just ran out of gas for our stove, which wouldn't normally be a cause for prayer, but we have had a few complications. When Dave went to get a replacement he was told at 8 different places there hasn't been gas tanks available in Niamey for the last week. There is some sort of problem with the supplier. That is the first problem which wouldn't be so bad, but the next two days are "Tabaski" a big Islamic holiday in Niger where EVERYTHING is shut down. That means restaurants, street food, markets, etc. So I can't even go out and buy wood and a cooking pot to cook out in my yard like many of my neighbours do. So you can pray that our electricity will hold up for the next little while (our neighbourhood has a tendency to have long power outages the last one was from 11am until 8pm a little over a week ago), so that I can make do with my electrical appliances or find favour with my neighbours. I confess that I would rather be invited to join in their feast rather than be an imposition. It will be really interesting to see how God uses this situation for His purposes and His glory. It definately isn't the way that I would plan to spend Christmas!
