Your prayers are requested for veteran GBIM missionary to Africa Roy Snyder, shown here with his wife, Ruth. Roy will undergo quadruple bypass surgery tomorrow, Wednesday, at 6:30 am in Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
The Snyders served 35 years with GBIM in Central African Republic, and are now living at Grace Village and are active members at Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church. Roy is well-known for his witty and newsy “Veterans” letter detailing the comings and goings of current and former GBIM missionaries.
Please also be in prayer for the family of Faye Hocking, whose father died this morning in Ohio. Faye and her husband, Jim, are former GBIM missionaries to Africa, and are now involved in developing a new ministry, ICDI, for that region.
Fellowship Coordinator Tom Avey continues to recover in a southern California hospital from his quadruple bypass surgery. One of our Grace Brethren pastors visited him, and reported, “We also stopped in to visit Tom Avey at Eisenhower hospital in Palm Desert . . for a guy that had quadruple bypass surgery yesterday morning he looked very, very good. You would never guess he was recovering from such an invasive event. He will stay there in the hospital another 3-4 days and then be released to remain in the local area there for another week.”
