Prayer Request

Hello all - I'm sending this message out because I'd like to ask you all to add one of my boys to your prayer list and to keep bringing him and his family before the Lord until I tell you otherwise. Christian is 13, attends school and does well and thus far has managed to avoid the pitfalls that are all around him; drugs, alcoholism, gang activity and sex. The temptations alone are enough to ask for prayer but I learned recently that he and his entire family from his 4 year old cousins to his Grandmother that he thinks is is mother have prices on their lives. A few years ago drug traffickers got into a turf war with a few of Christian's older cousins and because his family has a tendency for revenge and violence the Traffickers, as a means for self-preservation, began killing off his family; they vowed that they would not stop until the entire family from the youngest to the oldest was dead. That is why Christian and parts of his family live here in the garbage dump - they're hiding out.Please be praying for this family, pray for protection, for the ability to forgive the Traffickers and that the Traffickers themselves give up this senseless and horrible pursuit of innoncent people. Thanks and Blessings to you. Peace!
