Call to Prayer/Petición de Oración

Dear friends:

My name is Jeffrey Silva and I am Don Silva's nephew. My uncle has joyfully shared his artistic talent through this blog and has cherished your responses and support. It is only right that I share with you the following news and request that you join us in prayer.

My uncle Don arrived from Colombia over a week ago and has fallen ill since. He is currently in the hospital under intensive care for what appears to be severe pneumonia. As many of you know from his last blog entry, he has been battling depression for quite some time. Please raise him and our family in prayer. Thank you.


Queridos Amigos/as:

Mi nombre es Jeffrey Silva y soy el sobrino de Don Silva-- el autor de este blog. Mi tio a compartido con mucha alegria sus talentos artisticos atravez de este blog y a disfrutado del apoyo que a recibido. Deseo traerles la siguiente noticia y pedir que nos acompañen en oracion.

Mi tio regreso de colombia hace una semana y desde entonces se a enfermado. En estos momentos se encuentra en el hospital en cuidado intensivo a causa de pulmonia severa. Muchos de ustedes saben que el a estado batallando con depresion ya por un tiempo. Por favor les pido que lo lleven a el y a nuestra familia en oracion. Gracias.

Que Deus restabeleça a saúde dele. E tome conta de toda a sua família, conforme, o firme intento do seu coração.
Que o Senhor possa leh conceder restauração e que possa novamente estar conosco para edificação mútua.

Graça e Paz...

Our prayers go out to Don and your entire family. Don has gifted our small church in wonderful ways through his ministry. His artwork has provided us with resources we could never afford otherwise. He truly is a blessing.

Father God, we thank you so much for the gifts you have given to Don. He is a great servant, Lord. Please be with him and his family during these times of trial. Heal him completely, God, both physically and emotionally, as we know you can. In the precious name of Christ, we pray. Amen.
