Please Pray – 17 Month Old Daughter of Missionary Family Headed for Heart Procedure


Please pray for Audrey Riggins as she will soon be undergoing a heart procedure in Manila, Philippines, to close a PDA (patent ductus arteriosus).

Audrey is the 17 month old daughter of fellow missionaries – Asia-Pacific Regional Finance Coordinator Scot and Jill Riggins, who live and serve in the Philippines.

pdaShe will have an echo (echocardiogram) on Friday, February 19 to determine the size of the PDA as well as if/how it is affecting her heart. If she is completely healthy, she will have a catheter procedure on Saturday, Feb. 20 to close the PDA.

Pray with us that:

  • She will be able to have the procedure without complications,
  • That her heart will be found to be healthy,
  • That her recovery will be quick.

The Riggins write, “We have had peace through this journey, and we are so thankful for the prayers of many. We have sensed them, been encouraged by them, and see that they are making a difference for us!”

We will keep you posted.  There is definite power in prayer and your prayers are needed!

 

Latest World Mission Communications Global News Video


One of the primary responsibilities of the Regional Communications Coordinator (my job – Todd) is keeping the global church connected with what is happening in Missions on the Asia-Pacific Region.  We have taken it a step further.  Since I am so blessed to have a tremendous team working with me, we are wanting to provide updates from the mission work on every region!  One of our interns, a graduate from Olivet Nazarene University, Rebecca Moisio, who has been working with us here in Manila since October of 2015, has been doing a tremendous job of putting together these news pieces. (Feature image is from the Myanmar District Assembly – another post will be coming about that trip!)
