3/17: Quick note

Here is an email response I sent to someone today...a quick note from me asking for prayer.

Thanks for doing so. -Ryan
i have a high fever and was throwing up. need to get better.

also - 2 of my close friends in africa (one in zambia and one in zimbabwe) both lost cousins this past week. one was beaten to death by her husband, leaving a 2 month old with a father in jail and without a mother. :( the other cousin from zambia died of cervical cancer.

all of this leaves a lot of people overwhelmed. however, these stories of real friends also gives me strength and the encouragement to press on, knowing our job at Forgotten Voices - to love vulnerable & forgotten people as Christ would -- goes on.

thanks for praying, matt. i move forward each day knowing people are praying for me and with me.  know that I'm deeply thankful for you and this unique ministry.

all the best,
