House Fire
« on: January 11, 2008, 08:50:06 PM »
My yaiyai's house recently burned down (Thank the almighty Lord that it was his Will that all were saved and none were injured). I ask for your prayers that the insurance is able to pull through and make a speedy recreation or the house for my god fearing yaiyai who is indeed a holy woman.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Yeah she is ok physically. But she is sort of distraught she has this crazy idea that someone deliberately lit it against her but she is with relatives  at the moment.

House Break-in
« Reply #16 on: October 10, 2008, 12:58:59 AM »
I never got to thank everyone for their prayers and sadly I have more bad news to repeat. My yaya (grandmother) is currently staying with my aunty until her house gets built (which is going ok at the moment), but I found out yesterday that my aunties house got broken in to and the robbers stole the tv, gaming device, Ipods and my aunties and yayas jewelry. It was again the Lords will that no one was in the house when it happened (It was in the middle of the day) so no one has been injured. My yaya has lost sentimental jewelry from her early 20's and is again distraught as her Greek superstition has lead her to believe she is some sort of bad luck charm. May I just pray that the Lord softens my yayas and my aunties families hearts and help them to love the people that broke in to the house and that all of this may glorify God in the end.
