Dave Barnes writes,
Margo and I would like to thank the brethren for prayers for my brother and our family. Sadly, John passed away Thursday night after his battle with cancer. Our family has suffered 5 deaths in the past two years. Thank you for your continued support.
Ferke, AlPrevious Requests
Allan Ferke is requesting your prayers regarding a very serious physical trial he is enduring. Al writes:
Last week I was sitting on my office chair and I began to get very hot and all the muscles in my body felt as though I had just loaded a truck with heavy material. I went to get up and I had no power or control in my legs to hold me up and I crashed on the floor. Later it happened again and I ended up in a dead weight squat. I am now having problems walking without extreme pain and can't sit up with my leg extended. I am taking steroids (but) nothing seems to be getting any better. I would appreciate prayers for this trial to be removed, groin area pain relief, and the ability to ambulate normally. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Harmon, DexterPrevious Requests
Jerry Biles would like to thank everyone for their prayers on behalf of his Uncle Dexter, who died very early Thursday morning. Please continue to pray for Jerry's family and especially for Jerry's mother, who was very close to her brother.

Jordan, JosephEl Paso, Texas
Your prayers have been requested for the full recovery of Joseph Jordan, who is currently in the Hospital ICU following surgery. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Meyers, WilliamPrevious Requests
Carol Fletcher writes,
I would like to request prayers for my dad, Bill (William) Meyers. He just spent 8 days in the hospital for a lung infection and pneumonia. He is still not better, and the COPD complicates the current issues. He is disheartened he is on so much medication that he is having problems hearing and walking. He is depressed and says he has nothing to look forward to. We ask for God's mercy. Prayers for my dad have always been answered and we thank God for that.
Mojica, MoisesPrevious Requests
Mariela Reiss is requesting that you continue to keep her Dad, Moises Mojica, in your prayers. He was taken to the ER yesterday after several falls at home, followed by becoming unable to stand on his own. A CT scan and an MRI showed an "increased effect" from one of the brain tumors and more swelling in his brain. He was admitted to the hospital while the neurologists determine a course of action.
"It is unclear whether surgery is a possibility or whether the tumor that is causing the problems is in an area where surgery would not be advisable. Dad, at least, was comfortable, on pain meds, and sleeping a great portion of the time he was in the ER. Please ask the brethren to pray for his peace and comfort, for guidance for the doctors and for my sister and brother-in-law who are making decisions. And that God's Will be done."
Thank you for continuing to join Mariela and John in seeking our Father's Will during this very difficult trial for her family.
Your prayers have been requested for Denis Parent who is suffering from life-threatening cancer. Thank you in advance for your prayers on his behalf.
Preston, SusanAlexander Heights, Western Australia
Susan reports that for the last few days she has had much less pain, and almost has a full range of motion with her neck. She also had some help moving some furniture; it turns out that the insect infestation consists of ants rather than termites. Susan appreciates the prayers and is very grateful to God.
Susan is experiencing significant pain as a result of a frozen shoulder. Her doctor has recommended heat rubs and gentle exercises, though Susan is facing challenges implementing these because she is unable to reach all the sore areas. As well, her apartment has been found to have termites, and she may have to move furniture for the treatment, which would cause more shoulder pain. She would appreciate you prayers for God's intervention. Thank you.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
With God's, help I now have some work after 5 months. This contract has potential for more work. Please pray that I deliver the service according to the client's needs. Please also pray for us as there are some growing security concerns in our new neighborhood. We need God's protection, guidance and resources concerning what we should do. Thank you.
My Mum's and Step-Dad's situation continues to get worse. The life of a key witness in favor of my Step Dad continues to be in danger. The extended family is no longer able to cope with the financial demands the situation dictates, causing some of us to get into debt.
Early this week my mum was forced to abandon the farm due to what we considered a security risk and other complications. This now poses a risk to the house and their personal effects. We are just all drained and more so for us with just a short period before Passover.
Please pray for God's mercy in the whole matter. Thank you.
Thank you to all who were praying for us. God saw us through the storm which started at 9:21 PM and ended at 1 am. This is a countrywide problem and we still have another month before the rains end. We continue to look to God.
Stanwood, Jane (95)Albuquerque, New Mexico
Please pray for Jane Stanwood of beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jane slipped and fell on her bathroom floor, injuring her back and causing a great deal of pain when she moves in certain ways. In addition, she also sustained a three-inch gash to her right arm when it scraped against the heater vent. She would be grateful for prayers for rapid healing so she can be at Passover services and participate in the foot washing. Thank you.
Wasserfall, HildaPrevious Requests
Mrs. Hilda Wasserfall, 84, a CGG member living in Paarl, Western Cape, South Africa is suffering from worsening eyesight. She has tunnel vision in one eye, and the other one is deteriorating from glaucoma. She asks the brethren to please pray for her as she is struggling more and more each day. Thank you.

Many of you are aware that I have been very ill the past couple of years with ailments due to weight gain from medications, arthritis, heart problems, etc. It has been a long road but God continues to provide me with the patience and endurance during this difficult time with so many health issues. The prayers of the brethren are felt and lovingly appreciated. Please continue to pray for me and my family as I prepare for stomach surgery on Tuesday, March 21. Please pray that God will guide the surgeons for a successful surgery and provide me with a speedy recovery.
