Posted on 02/04/2012 6:40:11 PM PST by ConorMacNessa
I request your prayers at this time for my daughter Mary as she embarks on a six-month mission to Kenya. This mission is under the auspices of her Alma Mater, St. Josephs University, and involves working with orphans and other children affected by the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
She is departing from Dulles Airport in Northern Virginia on Friday, February 10. Her mother and I are very proud of the work she has undertaken in Africa. She has already completed service trips to Tanzania and Kenya, each of two weeks duration. At the same time, I dont mind telling you that both her mother and I are fearful of the danger she may face over there. I sent her numerous articles regarding Islamic persecution of Christians in Kenya and requested that she reconsider her plans. However, she is adamant in her intent to undertake this mission.
She has received the blessing of our parish on her mission the parish gave her a stipend to defray the expenses of her trip.
We are committed Christians who recognize the duty of the faithful to Witness the immutable Truth of God. We are resigned to her undertaking this mission as one to which she has been called. We request your prayers for the success of her mission. We request your prayers for the innocent children of Kenya whom she goes to serve. We request your prayers for her safe return at the conclusion of her mission.
A touching request. I shall so pray.
Memorare said. Sounds like she’s doing wonderful things. My prayers also for her folks. ;)
I sincerely pray that you will use all necessary force to stop her. The Moslems in Kenya will try to kill any Christian they see in their midst as mandate 45 times in the koran. Many fine mission fields right here. Good Luck. Use tough love.
My prayers are with your brave daughter! No doubt many lives will be touched by the courage and conviction of her compassion.
Always happy to pray for those with the courage to bring the Gospel into the dark places on the planet. May the LORD be with your beloved daughter as she undertakes this journey. may he bless her with strength, health, and a powerful witness to those in darkness.
That takes courage and love for those in need.
May the Good Lord keep her and protect and provide for a fruitful ministry.
Many prayers and praise as well for your lovely daughter and may G-d shorten the passage of time for you all from the time she leaves until she returns home safe and sound. You must be so proud.
May such a selfless and loving act be rewarded by God. Bringing goodness and joy to others, I am sure she will touch many hearts and bring light into this world of darkness. Bless her and her mission.
My two daughters spent a month working at a rural hospital in Kenya last March. They are both in the medical field and periodically go to third world countries to work, as well as having gone on non-medical missions. If I remember correctly, the primary trouble spots in Kenya are along the northern borders, particularly with Somalia. The interior is much safer. My impression was that they felt safer there than in some of the other countries they have worked in.
If you don’t have an account with Facebook, I recommend starting one. I put it off until last year. It is a very convenient way to share photos.
Also, a weekend excursion to the Masai Mara would be something that they should look into while they are there.
Best wishes to you and yours.
God bless and God speed. Prayers are up.
Prayers up for your daughter.
And you, sir, have led an interesting life. Great “About” page!
God be with her and her soldiers in Christ.
Many blessings, dear friend.
May Angels guard her while she is away and bring her home safe! Such a brave young lady she is!
Hugs and continued prayers for Mary!
Praying for Mary.
Prayers for Mary. God bless her for doing Gods work.
What a brave and God loving daughter you have. I pray the Lord will watch over her and keep her safe on her mission. And I pray that the Lord will offer you and Mrs. MacNessa peace during her journey. God Bless all of you.
May she be aware of God’s watchful eye while she is there.
I have spent some time in Africa, the tragic conditions have forever shaped my appreciation for what we have here. That being said I pray I will have the opportunity to return.
Sending prayers for Mary’s safety and success of mission.
Prayers of peace for you and your family as Mary is away on her mission.
May God watch over Mary and you have reasons for concerns, Doc. Standing the Prayer Watch along with you.
Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but she’s on an assignment from the Tea Party Intelligence Agency to retrieve the Obama birth certificate!
Prayers going up for your beautiful daughter Conor . . . prayers also for those she leaves behind . . . God be with you all.
May ALmighty God surround your daughter with His angels to guard her and keep her safe. I ask this in the Name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen.
May God bless her and keep her safe while she does this good work, and may God bless her parents as well...
I will be prayering for her and others she will deal with over there. Please keep us updated. Praise Jesus and Hail Mary as the Angel Declared!!
I pray for her to reach many hearts with the Lords Gospel.
Such a leap of faith ! Prayers that the Lord will keep her safe and provide you with peace of mind until she returns safely.
Your daughter is better off in Africa in the will of God than she would be staying here in rebellion to His leading.
We raised 4 kids living in Kenya & Uganda back in the late 1970’s and 1980’s.
All have said that they are so very grateful for the opportunity to have lived in Africa growing up.
BTW, we lived through malaria, hepatitis, Bot fly infestation, an ambush, famine and a rhino charge. These things gave us all a great set of stories to bore folks with. Don’t sweat the small stuff. If you are in God’s will, all else is “small stuff”.
You can be very proud of your daughter!
My daughter went to africa on a college mission and everything went fine there. However,back at home things fell apart without her there to carry on all the things she normally helped everyone with. Something to remember and prepare for. Many blessings. God bless you all.
May The Lord bless you and keep you;
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

May Jesus himself accompany Mary on this trip, and may her guardian angel be ever at her side.
Prayers for your lovely daughter and her safe return!
May she also come home with some good stories to tell -- good adventures make good stories.
I pray to God for her successful mission, and even more for her safe return. May God grant your family strength and peace of mind during her time away.
I join you in prayer for Mary’s mission trip to Kenya. May Jesus shine through her to the people of Kenya.
We are praying for your daughter that she will be in God’s hand and that He will bless and keep her well and safe in her time there. May she be blessed for the work she is doing. “How beautiful are the feet of those that bring Good News”!
Our son is doing a 2 year mission in Nepal, will not be back until October of this year. So from parents that understand the time before you, we pray for you as well.
Blessings, OKC Patriot
Oh, how proud you have to be! God Bless Mary and keep her safe, let her bring comfort to the afflicted children, and bring her back safely to her mom and dad.
I will add Mary, you and your wife to my daily prayer list. And, yes, she IS beautiful, too!
(((((Sending Heartfelt Prayers)))))
God bless you both as well as your faithful daughter!
May Jesus guide her every step and keep her safe. Wow. Just wow!
Kenya is close to 85% Christian. Muslims are few and far between.
Prayers sent! What a rewarding thing to be doing.
Sorry but she’ll get my prayers when she does the same in the U S namely Memphis or Detroit.
