Borgna, BrandonPrevious Requests
Brandon's minister writes,
Today Brandon Borgna had his surgery. God provided one of the top neuro-surgeons in the United States to care for Brandon and the operation to remove the tumor was successful. The tumor was indeed cancerous but the doctor says he got it all. It was about the size of a plum. The family was able to see Brandon an hour after the operation and were so happy and thankful. Brandon does not seem to have lost any of his mental functionality.
Brandon will be recovering the next few days but so far all the reports are good. Please continue to pray for our Father's protection of Brandon that he not suffer any complications while his flesh heals.
The past few days have been a severe trial and test of faith for Brandon and his wife Sarah Jo. Please pray and ask their behalf that they be filled with the confidence and assurance in our Father's will and purpose for them both.
Brandon came back to full consciousness Sunday evening. He was anointed, and returned to his "old self"—eating food normally, and appearing to be doing well. There is no further information on the tumor, but surgery is scheduled for Wednesday. Thank you for your continued prayers for Brandon.
Please pray for Brandon Borgna, a UCG member in the Greensboro, NC congregation. Brandon has a large brain tumor, though it is not known whether it is malignant or benign. He was scheduled to have an operation on Sunday. Your prayers for his healing and recovery are appreciated. Thank you.
Delicious reports that the track loader is back up and running, and only needed some cooling parts. Thank you for your prayers.

Higgins, PatPrevious Requests
After a trip to the emergency room, things turned around. On Thursday I have a root canal scheduled to deal with the tooth that caused the problem. My situation should be close enough to normal by then for it to go as planned. Thanks for the prayers.

Preston, SusanAlexander Heights, Western Australia
Susan is asking for your prayers for a friend in her 40s who has had chronic illness all her life. Recently, melanoma was discovered in her upper arm. Her doctor removed it, and also removed additional flesh to ensure he had gotten all of it. However, the doctor contacted her and said there is more cancer that needs to be removed. The previous wound needs to heal, so her appointment for additional surgery is in four weeks. Your prayers for God's intervention are appreciated.
Rivers, AllonaPinellas Park, Florida

Roemhild, TerryColorado City, Arizona
Longtime church of God member, Terry Roemhild, died Thursday, May 25, 2017. His death was due to the effects of rheumatoid arthritis. He was 67. Funeral arrangements are pending. Please keep his wife, Vicki, and their children in your prayers. Thank you.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
In Lusaka, my home-town, the municipality does not function. This means every new lot must drill their own water supply, which is quite a costly venture. Since December, we hired someone to supply us water in drums every second day and paid monthly. The person who has been supplying us with water for the past 4 months disappeared on Sunday, creating a water crisis for us. Hiring another person could be a security risk.
Please pray that God may provide a solution for us. One may live without electricity as there are a number of alternatives, but living without water is quite a challenge.
Wakeling, JudithPrevious Requests
Judith's operation went well, as have the most difficult days of recovery. She will probably stay in Sydney until mid-week, and then be transported back to her local hospital to continue physiotherapy. Please continue to pray for her as she undergoes this difficult recovery. She sends her thanks to the brethren for interceding on her behalf and is very grateful to God for His mercy and goodness.
