Rev. Hal Ricker praises the Lord for excellent Christmas season sales at the TBS book store.  Please pray for Saul, an ex-policeman in the Los Angeles church, who suffers with mental problems.  He is willing to work with a group associated with the Guatemalan army. Pray for sister Amanda at the same church, who fell and injured her leg (from ankle to thigh) and had to have surgery on her knee. Pray for Deacon Hector, who continues to wait for his fourth operation; his family needs financial help. Pray for Pastor Julio Marin, who has liver trouble and has lost eight pounds. Pray as the CIEF plans conferences in February on “Sacred Music in the Church”, inviting delegates from many churches.
