Brazil: floods and more on Jean Marc prayer requests

Pray for Brazil!   Dear Pastors & Friends,   I wanted to give you an update on the conditions in Brazil. I spoke with Jean Marc again today and he shared with me the serious conditions that are taking place in the Northern part of the state of Rio de Janeiro.   They are asking the nations to pray for the serious devastation that is taking place in that region right now. Jean Marc told me that it's one of the most serious catastrophies that Brazil has ever encountered.

Pakistan Governor murdered because of his support of Christian women on trial.

      PAKISTAN   SUMMARY:   The governor of Punjab, Pakistan, Salmaan Taseer, was assassinated by one of his own guards on January 4, 2011. Taseer had spoken out against the nation's blasphemy laws and was a supporter of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman imprisoned for blasphemy and facing the death sentence. Salmaan Taseer, governor of Pakistan's most populous province, was gunned down by a member of his team of guards on January 4, 2011. His death comes three years after former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated. Taseer was considered "one of [Bhutto's] most prominent supporters." Taseer's killer said he committed this murder as "punishment for a blasphemer." The governor had spoken out about Pakistan's vaguely worded blasphemy laws, calling them harsh and unfair. "These laws are used to victimize Christians and other groups," Taseer said. He was one of only a few officials in Pakistan

These are main basic needs.    Please...please... try to send some  funds to fix the doors
