New Prayer Requests:
Black, RosaPrevious Requests
Ted Bowling is asking for your prayers for his mother-in-law, Rosa Black. Rosa had a stroke early this morning. The doctors are performing tests to see what damage, if any, there was. Thank you in advance.
Clinton, DeborahPrevious Requests
Debbie Clinton is requesting your prayers for God's intervention and healing of her chronically swollen left ankle that has been a severe problem for several years. This ankle leads to the foot that was the site of a recent very severe bacterial bone infection. Debbie writes that "the swelling is too horrible for words" and she only receives a small measure of relief at night; only to have the swelling return once she is up and around in the morning. She is hoping that God will hear the prayers of the Brethren and will completely heal this affliction, which often keeps her from being able to even put on a pair of shoes. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Although I am trying to remain polite and not say anything out of pocket, the man at the starter place was trying to say that I burned up the new rebuild and that he would have to go find some exotic parts to make it work. I have been around a lot of machinery and seen a lot of strange things happen, but I am more than just a little suspicious. Either Satan has been allowed to supernaturally do this starter in, or the man is telling a tale, but either way, I know I need God's intervention in this matter because the year is again racing by while the machine is not running at all and it is only getting more and more costly over time. I am forever grateful for everyone's prayers and support.
Dratler, LilPrevious Requests
Lil Dratler is requesting your prayers for God's intervention and healing of her Achiles Tendon. After various ineffective treatments and physical therapy, she is now in a walking boot, hoping to avoid surgery to repair the tendon that the doctor described as "unraveled like yarn". Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Fenwick, ShellyPrevious Requests
Shelly would like to thank you for your prayers regarding finding a job. Although keeping the Sabbath was initially an issue, God granted Shelly favor in the eyes of her potential employer and she was given the job and hours Sunday thru Wednesday.
Shelly is very excited about her new job opportunity and very grateful to all who have been remembering her health and financial situation in their prayers.
Ferke, AlPrevious Requests
Allan, who has been going through many of the consequences of diabetes, is now in kidney failure and facing regular dialysis treatments. He also has a 75% blockage in his left leg that is inhibiting blood flow to his toes and this could eventually lead to amputation. Allan writes: "I would appreciate prayers; I do need them, badly". Thank you in advance for your prayers on Allan's behalf.
McCrae, JanPrevious Requests
Please thank everyone for the prayers, phone calls and e-mails. I am feeling a little better but it's going to be a long time before I'm able to do much of anything. The continued prayers would be appreciated.
Mimms, Meredith (Newborn)Previous Requests
The Mimms family thanks you very much for the prayers offered on Meredith's behalf. While there has been no improvement in Meredith's suction difficulties, she continues to be happy, healthy and maintain hydration. God is always providing. Your continued prayers are much appreciated. Thank you.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
I have a much-needed training scheduled for 29 June, 2018. However, the registration has been very slow. If at least 10 to 15 participants register then the training will take place. Please pray for God to intervene so that I can have some work. Thank you.
Zimmer, Bill and EvelynPrevious Requests
Peggy reports that aside from some strong opinions over who was to drive him, Bill's move to the Veteran's facility went well. He has settled in, and the family is very grateful for the prayers.
My uncle's dementia continues to get worse, but with God's help they have been able to get him in a very nice Veterans home about 15 miles away from my aunt. He has been much more cooperative lately but is scheduled to go to this facility on the 18th. We really need your prayers, please, for a smooth transition. My aunt cannot care for him and he needs skilled nursing care. Specifically, they need him to accept this move and not fight it. It will be a tremendously difficult move for both of them as it is. Please pray that God will intervene and give my aunt the help she needs to go forward. This facility has a long waiting list and it is a blessing that they could get him in. Thank you.
Zwanepoel, ChantelleStilfontein, South Africa
After a number of surgeries and potential recoveries, this morning the doctors found that Piet's kidneys were not functioning properly and that another leakage was taking place. Despite all their efforts, the doctors and specialists were not able to save Piet's life; he died Tuesday afternoon. Chantelle is very distressed after the tumultuous past few weeks. However, she wants to convey her and her family’s thanks and appreciation for all the concern and prayers on their behalf. Please continue to keep them in prayer during their time of grief and loss.
