My friends Buddy and Loren are missionaries in the headwaters of the Amazon in Peru. For the last few weeks they have been extremely ill, with various and sometimes unknown ailments. Their three young children are all quite ill as well. They do have some medical help, but it is not very conclusive help. Buddy's father told me Saturday that two of the children have hardly eaten (or kept anything down) for days. One of them threw up ten times in one day. These friends of mine have had a spiritually successful career in Peru for the last 6 years or so, and God has used them mightily at times. They have taken the Gospel to areas where there has evidently never been a faithful witness. BTW, I'm not sure if there is a more appropriate part of the BB to post prayer requests on. If so, please kindly let me know.
