* (continued) Mail from Scotland: When we arrived in UK, it was difficult to rent a place without a job. But the Lord helped us find a place! The night we moved in, the neighbor downstairs played rock music till after midnight. Even the floor vibrated and we could not sleep. Early in the morning we continued to have free music for 20 hours, two nights in a row! On the 3rd night, the whole family prayed for help from the Lord and for our neighbour. Amazingly the floor below started to calm down and up to now, we could sleep well. With prayer we experience God’s grace. Praise the Lord! ~ Alex (Glasgow)

She is feeling weak from the surgery…. Let’s continue to support them through prayers that the Lord blesses her with strength and salvation. Sister Grace YUNG/鳴恩
