About a month and a half ago, I mentioned to someone that it seemed that this Malaria season had been quite light. Well, I was wrong! Since then we have had numerous people associated with the Mission or one of its ministries come done with Malaria. The most recent one is Mike Ammentorp. Mike is finishing up his two year commitment this year at the Academy and he is from my parent's home church. Please pray for Mike. He was admitted to the ward yesterday with 4+ Malaria (the highest level) to receive quinine drip through IV. He will be there for at least 24 hours and with no visitors. He will be out from work for at least the rest of this week. Pray that he responds quickly to the medicine and does not have any relapses.

Below is an email from our Pastor's brother, Chuck McArthtur. Chuck was with the work in Liberia before the civil war and he is back working in Liberia again, but in a different capacity. In addition to the matters that Chuck mentions for prayer, I would add that you please pray for Reverend and Mrs. Chinchen. This has been--and will be--a very difficult road for them to travel as well.

Dear Family and Friends, Olivet PCA had its annual World Missions Comference last weekend. Jeff Fairfax on the Missions Committee had asked Scharlie and I to put together a video presentation that could be shown. We had a lot of fun putting this together. The link to it is below. We would love to hear what you think about it. Is there something about our time here that you would like to know more or "see" more about? Let us know Grace and Peace, Brian and Scharlie http://dl.dropbox.com/u/76020834/Olivet%20Missions%20Conference%202012.m4v
