Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea:  Prayer has been requested for an NYI Leader, Allen Haunje, as he is recovering in the hospital from wounds received from robbers in an attempted car jacking.  We praise the Lord that he was taken directly to a hospital where he underwent a 5 hour surgery to repair the damage.  Please pray not only for physical healing, but emotional healing as well.

Melanesia South Pacific NYI Coordinator Daniel Latu writes:

“I am calling on all youth to stand with us in praying continuously for God’s complete healing over Allan’s life, that the peace of God that surpasses all understanding would rest on Allan, his wife, children and family and forgiveness on those who wronged him. In essence we’re believing God for a setup in this setback. Genesis 50:20 – You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

Allen’s mother sent in an update that they had to amputate his left leg below the knee.  She continues to give God praise for the strength to accept this and thanks everyone for the continued prayers for her son and family.  She went on to quote Rom 8:28 All things work for good to those that love you and that are called according to his purpose .   Saying may God’s will be done.

Please keep Allen and his whole family in your prayers as he makes the necessary adjustments mentally as well as physically.  That his heart would remain soft and not become hardened.
