November Prayer Letter

November 2012

Dear Praying Friends,

The enemy soldiers had occupied her country for her entire short life; but that was about to change.  Sometime after midnight, gunfire could be heard from many directions and with the coming of dawn their world erupted.  Great, earth shaking explosions were heard and felt coming from the nearby shore and when they looked, the sea was filled with ships all the way to the horizon.  She and her family hid in their small home until the battle was over.  The date was June 6, 1944.

Raised as a Catholic, she grew up in Normandy, but as an adult, the urge to travel took her all over Europe.  Now in her seventies, she has lived for a number of years here in Portugal.  She signed up for our English class and began coming to our church services with a Christian friend.  She has been attending faithfully for the past two months even when her friend cannot come due to work.

She listens intently to my messages and has many questions about the Bible, salvation and the world from a biblical perspective.  She is getting closer and closer to salvation and we are anxiously praying for her to come to Christ before it is eternally too late.  Please remember Gabrielle in your prayers. 

Praying for souls,

Mark Hale
