Please continue to pray for Heather (see SPECIAL PRAYER REQUEST). The last I heard the stubborn little tyke was still refusing to come out.

My mom is headed to Tuscaloosa with a church group to do some tornado relief. They'll be down there for about a month. She's had all sorts of relevant training, and she's an incredibly creative problem-solver.
All this month, I'll be praying for that trip. That her church is able to serve the people in Alabama well. That my mom stays safe, and also that this is a time of peace and fulfillment for her. That both the serving and the served are blessed. If you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate your keeping the trip in your prayers, too.

Pray also for the fallen heroes also of our coalition partners, and for the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan who have died, unnamed and unknown to us, and for those who mourn ... and for an end to this endless war.
More than 200 Afghan militants have crossed over and attacked a security checkpoint in northwest Pakistan. The firefight in Upper Dir district along the Afghan border erupted Wednesday morning and went on for about a day. Three civilians and 22 security forces died in the attack. Pakistani military officials took over, killing more than two dozen militants.
