Pray for special times over Easter when she is in Germany with family and friends (until the end of April).

Please pray for Caroline as she embarks on a short term mission trip to the USA and Cambodia. Caroline writes “I am away Friday 7th April – Friday 9th June with Patricia King and XP Ministries, doing an internship for a month in Phoenix, Arizona and then in Cambodia for a month, helping to rescue victims of sex trafficking. I would appreciate prayer for a supernatural ability to cope, strength, energy & good sleep and safety & protection.”

Parents of Andrea Mason
Please pray for Andrea’s father who has had to stop taking his dementia medication due to a very rare side effect.  Andrea asks for prayer for both of her parents, both of whom are in their 80’s.  Please continue to pray that they can access the right services that they need during this difficult time.
