Please PRAY!

Hey friends,
Brian is now in Bangkok, Thailand for the 3rd Wave Conference (Global conference for Nazarene youth leaders).  Some of our participants from Papua New Guinea were trying to get to the conference, and we just found out the following news... please pray for our friends!

"Urgent prayer is requested for four Nazarenes from Papua New Guinea who are missing en route to the NYI sponsored "Third Wave" gathering in Bangkok, Thailand.
The four young man and at least three others were last seen departing Aitape, a small town on the North coast of PNG, at 11:30 AM on Saturday, local time. They were traveling in rough seas in a 23' fiberglass boat with a 40 HP outboard motor. They were to have arrived at their destination by 4 or 5 PM on Saturday but have not been heard from. They are now more than 24 hours overdue.
The PNG Defense force will launch a Search and Rescue at first light tomorrow (Monday) morning, coordinating East out of Vanimo. Please join us in praying for the safety of these four young men as well as the other passengers and crew."
I'll keep you updated as soon as I hear anything... thanks for your prayers!
