Prayers from Fatima

Dear Friends on the Way,

We wanted to drop you a note to let you know that Stephanie and I have been in prayer for you for hours upon hours in Fatima. We have prayed for you in more ways than we can recount here, but here are a few are of the most beautiful moments we spent lifting you and your intentions to heaven.

This is a photo of all of your prayer intentions and the candles we gathered for each one:

Once we gathered the candles we read through all of the requests and prayed for each of them. Then we began to place them and light them to allow the sacrifice of the candles to further lift your prayers to heaven.

We have left Fatima and are now on a six hour drive down to Cordoba Spain to meet with the renowned artist, Francisco Romero Zafra. You can learn more about him by clicking on his name. Here’s a beautiful image of his work to give you a sense of why we are meeting with him:

We will continue to keep you in our prayers, please pray for us, and in particular for a fruitful meeting with Francisco.
