The Rev. Dana Nelson and her husband, Thomas Ososki, are ELCA missionaries serving in Peru. Pastor Nelson sends this request for our prayers.–Sue
Please, from wherever you are, pray with us for an end to the violence in the Amazon rainforest of Peru where the native people and national government officials are killing each other over land rights. The area where the native people have been living for generations has oil and gold in it.
Please pray with us. The Church of Sweden is joining us in prayer together with our Peruvian Lutheran Church (ILEP) and churches of all denominations around Peru.

I have put the people of Peru, in the Amazon Rain Forest, in my prayers, and those of my congregations.
I pray for the end of violence and killing, resulting in peace among the native people and national government officials.
I feel that I know you Dana, as Pr. John Kerr has shared his thoughts on you and your ministry. I had the opportunity to work with him during the last months of my internship and he then participated in my ordination.God's world is large, yet small at the same time. We are all interconnected in many ways.Thanks be to God for you Dana and all that you do!
Prayers and Blessings to you and yours!
Pr. Kathy Wohlers
