  23. Dear Brothers and sisters,
    we are Matthew Yap and Suling from Singapore. Recently, we are facing a dishonest businessman, Matthew Gomes. He has denied his initial commitment to the business when we decided to take over his business. He worked with his brother in US to bring discounted luxury bags to Singapore for us, but he did not honour his words. Instead, we are getting his good supplies which are marked up at 25% and we have a problem maintaining the business. Recently, he loses 10 of our bags during delivery and he is walking away from his responsbililty. We pray for protection against his wicked ways he caused onto us, we do not want to get hurt to his dishonesty. We also asked the Lord for wisdom and new ideas and ways for the business as we are thinking of changing our business and want to have nothing to do with Matthew Gomes and his scheming ways. We are unable to deal with this man and we ask for justice against this man and his brother who come together to cheat us at least 2 times. We believe God is with us and we are at peace with Him. Whatever we do we committed our lives and faith in Him. We trust that God will lead us out against this wickedness and evil Mathew Gomes has started. We do not fear for God will help us. We ask for your prayer support in this matter.

    Matthew Yap, 12/8/2016
