Happy 4th of July to all our readers in the US!

This week we'd like to let you know about an urgent prayer request
we received:

"David Allen is a young missionary on the Chiang Mai, Thailand,
mission team.  He is critically ill with an unknown parasite and
apparently will die within two months unless there is an intervention
by the Lord.  Please help create a global blanket of prayer for David,
Michelle, and their four-month old daughter, Brianna."

David writes:
"I am not doing well. I feel like I am in a very dark valley right now.
I have been praying for so long for help with no response, that I have
become discouraged in prayer. This is a first for me in my life.  Michelle
and my parents are being a tremendous support for me, but they are having
a hard time seeing me suffer so much. My prayers now are very elemental:
"Father, save me!" But the pain continues each day, and I continue to lose
weight.

Please pray not only for my body, but for my spirit. I have not known
fear like this before. I don't want to be fearful, and I don't need to
be fearful because I am confident of my salvation. I think my fear is
related more to the thought of not being with my wife and the
new baby.

This was the happiest time in my life before I became sick.

  --David Allen"

Please lift up this missionary and his family in prayer this week.

Have a great week, and until next time, may the Lord richly
bless you.

In Him,

Dave Holst

[Note:  We don't write the descriptions of the sites, but
merely list some of the sites as submitted to the Christian
Resource Directory on HIS-Net that we feel might be of interest
to our readers.  We provide them here as a resource to help our
readers discover new Christian web sites. While we will attempt
to verify that each link points to a web site that glorifies God,
we cannot guarantee this will always be the case for every pointer.
Test the claims against the written Word of God, the Bible. May
the Lord guide you as you enjoy HIS 'net.]

How do you get your web site *on* this list? We go through and verify
each web site submitted to HIS-Net Christian Network. If we find one
that looks like it would be of interest to others on our mailing list,
we add it to the New Sites On HIS-Net section in this Newsletter.

We don't list Commercial/Business web sites in the New Sites On HIS-Net
section. If you would like your business advertised in this Newsletter,
