Mark advised by text tonight that he has a house and a hired car, but even after lots of promises – nothing. He is trying the UN again tonight and if there is no opening there they are looking at Jambi Indonesia or maybe Philippines. Kees and Kay came in today so Mark says they will pray hard.
I know the Lord will come through.
Will keep you in the loop as news comes to hand.

Mark is now in Padang Indonesia but has hit a major problem. His contact who promised everything has come up with nothing.
RN teams would normally go equipped with food, water, medical supplies etc for a minimum of ten days but this person told Mark not to bring anything and that he would take care of it.
Unfortunately he is not delivering on his promise and now Mark’s team (in Mark’s words) …. ‘We’ve no place to stay, no food, no water, no transport, no meds and no work’. They had accommodation Monday night only. They will go to the UN on Tuesday to make inquiries about opportunities. If nothing works for them there, they will consider going to the Philippines.
The balance of their team (about five people) come in from Europe on Wednesday.
They have been into disasters before where they are dependent on the Lord for ‘where’ they will work so I am sure that God has a place for them.
Please pray that things will fall into place for them especially before the balance of the team comes in and that they will be able to get access to food and med supplies enabling them to continue on their mission.

This is the inauguration of our blog, and I think it is an excellent way to get started. Keep tuned here for information on the deployments and the progress of the situations in general.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
Thank you for your interest and support in reaching out and saving the lives of those caught in extreme crisis.
