Hey Delta, Glad My Kids Are OK Because Your Rep Ryan Davis Is Not

(I feel I should edit this a bit for clarity regarding the paragraph about the chaperone. The paragraph below, regarding the chaperone, is worded poorly, and I apologize.

Immediate Prayer Needed

Please, please, please help me pray for a couple from Kenya in our DTS. They have sold all their belongings, including the family's goats, in obedience to God's calling them to Thailand.
