Marco and Lauretta Hannel Prayer Letter: New ArrivalWELCOME BABY!

We were blessed to welcome our newest member of the Hannel family, Daisy Grace, on January 8, 2024. She was 6 pounds 13 ounces and 19 inches long. Lauretta and Daisy are healthy and doing well. Pray for the transition of adding another child to the family. We thank God for allowing us the privilege of raising another child for Him. “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” (Psalm 127:3)


God worked everything out so that we could be at The World’s Cry Missions Conference at First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana. I was able to get our 4WD truck going so that we could be safe in the snow, and Lauretta felt strong enough to go shortly after the baby’s birth. The love and support we received there were absolutely amazing. We connected with many people and enjoyed the one-on-one conversations, as well as the friendly spirit of the people. God also worked in our hearts to bring us closer to Him and what His heart for the world is.


We are looking forward to what God will do this year, as our calendar is starting to fill up with meetings! Pray for us especially this next month as we call pastors and send out information about our ministry.

Keep the Buses Going,

The Hannel Family
