Thank you for praying for the 41 Campus Crusade associates on trial in Asia. The court will decide tomorrow what the verdict will be. Our friends in Asia are calling for 30 minutes of prayer together around the world at 9 p.m. EDT tonight, (Wednesday, Sept 5) which is 9 a.m. Thursday morning in Asia.

Please pray for this final decision.

Here is an update on the trial:

The defense presentation by our lawyers went very well according to those who were present. There were only a few radical elements present this time. An appeal for women to be immediately released was made. Our friends inside were also encouraged by the clear and strong defense presented.

At the conclusion of the day, the judges set September 6 for their decision to be handed down.

The judges are fearful of backlash if they release these believers. Please pray they will have courage to do what they know is right. And pray against riots or retaliation murders of other Christians.

In essence, please pray Thursday will be peaceful and that God will protect these imprisoned believers physically and spiritually.

These men and women are powerful reminders of why Campus Crusade for Christ and Evangeline and I need your prayers. Thank you for partnering with us and praying for us. For more prayer requests, please read our prayer letter.

In Christ,
