Default Prayers for Afghanistan, Haiti, the Border

No Politics, just prayers.

Praying for those in Afghanistan - those trying to get out, those Christians fearing for their lives, the girls who never knew life under the Taliban and will suffer.

Praying for the victims of the earthquake and tropical storm in Haiti - that relief can get through the damage, that help can get past the gangs, that disease will not rise.

Prayers for those at our Border - for those seeking safety, for those seeking a better life, for those whose job is to process and protect everyone, for protection against the coyotes, protection from the elements, protection against Covid.

There is just so much going on all at once.

Our friends in Haiti are safe. Their region is only mildly affected by the earthquake and the storm.

Our last acquaintance made it out of Afghanistan. As of last Monday she still knew foreigners who were trying to get out. We're praying that they made it to their home countries but haven't heard an update. She's only a friend of a friend so I don't know if we'll get an update.

One of DH's friends who just left Afg last month reports that one of his home church members got stopped on the street. They checked his phone and found the Bible App and beat him right out in public. He's ok (no permanent damage) but terrified. I can't even imagine.

My second cousin ( a different one than the one in the military - this one works in education technology) had been working night and say to help a friend and colleague get out of Afghanistan. It appears that if she can get her self and her children ( 4 and 3 months I think)to the airport tonight that she can leave. Can y'all cover this in prayer.

They didn't make it to the airport lastnight due to a change in what paper work is needed. There are 3 or 4 more days to hopefully be able to make this happen.
