  • Pray for Miguel and Yngrid Grassals, missionaries who have been sent sent out from the Dominican Republic to Panama.  Praise God for answering prayer, as God is leading them to spiritually hungry people.  They have three cell groups meeting in their home and hope to oficially begin church services in July.  Praise the Lord they have their Provisional Residency.  Pray for two couples that are going to Lima to participate in a Marriage Encounter (ALMA).
