This is simply a blog to ask for your prayers, as you’ll know if you read yesterday’s post, that my credit card had been hacked. It’s taken around 3 hours of phone calls SO FAR and about 12 different people, all of whom I had to repeat the same information to, on roaming charges (a tad under £2 a minute!), to get to the point where I know they won’t/don’t send replacement cards abroad (seems only AmEx do that, and I’m none too sure I’m in AmEx’s earning league!). Simon, who arrived last night, put about $850 onto a prepaid credit card in England on Sunday – only to discover when he went online, 30 minutes later, it had been locked. As my card, and Si’s, have money for Ana Beiba on them, it seems a wee bit more than coincidence, wouldn’t you agree?
What we have on those cards will means she can finish the renovations at her home, and take in another 20 or so people. Just value your prayers, as it would seem that the enemy is none to happy with us…. and that’s GREAT news, but your prayer intervention, along with ours here, will break his neck, of that I’m sure. I’ve promised Ana she’ll have her money next week, or at least before I leave, the 13th really being my last effective day here. Many thanks!
