This was received from Ben this morning:
"For some time now you guys have been praying that I would meet another believer here. Well I have. His name is William Lawson. I've known him for a few months now but it just dawned on me the other day (I'm a little slow) that your prayers have been answered. Unfortunately for Lawson he had to leave his family and come join me here in Iraq. He is doing well though.
Please continue to pray, not only for Ben, but William and his family as well.
