In spite of every treatment, she has not recovered till date. Also, she had to resign from her job with a leading Taxation Company, GT, in Bangalore, India. She is constantly in pain and unable to use both hands to do any work. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Clinton, AaronPrevious Requests
Deborah Clinton's Update on her Brother Aaron Clinton:
"Aaron's MRI results came back VERY positive! His tumor is stable and has not grown at all since his 2012 MRI's were done and the nasal polyp is simply a sinus issue brought on by allergies. Thank you ALL for your prayers on behalf of Aaron...the Clinton family is in deep gratitude!"
Fenwick, ShellyPrevious Requests
Shelly is requesting your prayers because she was involved in a car accident Thursday afternoon.
"I was rear ended by a semi, totaling my car, but the only thing that was very noticeable was the welt on the side of my head from hitting the seat belt holder. Miraculously, I avoided a row of trees and had no whiplash!
I was sore in some spots on my shoulders, neck and lower back where I have a serious injury. Internally, I am not sure what is going on. The greatest concern is my head and I still have a huge welt on the left side of my skull and new pains started to develop the next day. My ear and teeth hurt slightly, and down the left side of my neck is getting somewhat painful.
I was checked at the hospital and had x-rays, but they didn't seem to address my head at all.
I am now without a car and ask that God would intervene somehow to help with my financial situation as well."
Thank you in advance for your prayers on Shelly's behalf.
Fletcher, DanYork, South Carolina
Dan was able to sleep on his own throughout the night. He was awakened for a blood draw at 2:30 AM, at which time also received some pain medication. That was the last pain medication he has had, aside for an aspirin later in the morning because of a slight headache. The pain on his left side is completely gone, and the Fletchers are back home. Carol writes,
We thank God for His many blessing and ask for His guidance in showing everyone concerned what natural resources we can use for heart rhythm and thinning the blood. We want to thank everyone for their love, support, and prayers.
As soon as Dan arrived at the hospital, the doctors gave him an anticoagulant. This improved his left leg, which had been affected by the stroke. Next the doctors vacuumed out a 9mm blood clot from the right side of Dan's brain. The surgeon nicked the wall of the blood vessel with the vacuum tube, but believed it would heal itself. A second CT scan showed that the nick had indeed been healed, and the removal of the clot restored the function of Dan's hand and face, so all of his motor functions seem to be back to normal. As added encouragement, an uninvolved neurosurgeon (who filled in and checked on Dan the next day) said that if he had just met Dan without seeing his chart, he would have thought someone had played a joke on him — he did not see one thing wrong with Dan.
AM Update: Dan is experiencing intense abdominal pain a little above the waist. He is undergoing another CT scan to try to determine the cause.
PM Update: The doctors determined from the abdominal CT scan that Dan's pain is from blood clots that have entered both kidneys. Damage to the right kidney is minimal; however, the clot entering the left kidney has caused a 1/3 of it to die. There are no effective measures the doctors can offer except pain management until the pain subsides. Thank you for your continued prayers.
Dan returned home on Friday, and was feeling much better. However, while getting out of bed this morning, he fell and had a stroke. He was airlifted to the hospital, and is undergoing a CT scan. Thank you for your continued prayers.
Please continue to pray for the Fletchers. Dan was taken to the hospital because of a racing pulse, shortness of breath, as well as vomiting. The doctors have not determined an exact cause, but one possibility is a food-borne infection that has affected his heart. There is a good chance he will be released today; your prayers for his complete recovery would be appreciated. Thank you.
Dan's heart is racing, and this is causing him to have trouble breathing. The Fletchers would appreciate your prayers for healing, but especially for understanding what is causing this to happen. Thank you in advance.

Ronan, VirginiaPrevious Requests
Virginia Ronan, a former employer and good friend of Howard Henry, has a perforated intestine. An operation was performed last night, but she is under watch because the doctors feel they may have to go back in Sunday and remove more of her intestines. Your prayers would be appreciated.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
Last night or early morning, someone cut our washing line made of a thick rope. Our concern is that we hope it was not used to commit a crime elsewhere. And we are also concerned about our safety. Please pray for God's intervention and safety.
As I try to get back on track work-wise, I need prayers for God to grant me the ability to do my job to the satisfaction of the client, as God has always assisted me in the past. Thank you.
