Many Prayer Request from Missionaries

A lady at our church, Janet, she has been heavily working with the missions at our church. She talks to many missionaries around the world. She gives fellow church members booklets and list of missionaries and their prayer needs. Most of these prayer needs and concerns are sensitive info so only limited info is given due to safety of the missionary. As we know many missionaries are in dangerous areas for being a Christian.
