The Banmans and Baers write,
We thank you all from the heart for the prayers, and we are most grateful to God for hearing and answering the prayers. A few hours after we submitted the prayer request, God sent some scattered showers; not enough to kill the wildfires, but significant enough to give those who are working hard to fight the fires a great boost for a long enough period that the evacuation in our threatened area did not need to proceed. A couple of days later, the fire on our side of the river was battled to a point where the threat was almost eliminated, except for those farming right close to the vicinity. The people from the town of High Level and a couple Indian Reserves N/W of us that were evacuated were able to return to their homes on Tuesday, June 4th, although those areas are still on an 8 hour alert. There were 16 homes burnt at an Indian Reserve which is located about 12 miles on the other side of the river, S/W of us, and those people are still evacuated. So we are grateful for your prayers, and ask for continued prayers for God to continue to protect the people in the affected areas.
Bergstresser, LancePrevious Requests
Lance Bergstresser is asking for prayers for a friend's 10 year old son. His name is Jacob and he's been diagnosed with Stage 3 bone cancer. Thank you very much.
Burgess, BeckyPrevious Requests
Please pray for Becky Burgess, who was taken to the ER on Saturday because of extreme fatigue and shortness of breath. She has been diagnosed with multiple life-threatening problems, primarily stemming from a fibroid in her stomach that is creating numerous blood clots that are now filling her lungs and other organs. She will be undergoing emergency surgery shortly, and likely will need several more because of the seriousness of her condition. You urgent prayers are requested on Becky's behalf. Thank you.
Another doe gave birth yesterday and one came out dead, the other died in less than 27 hours, so no herd expansion there. Negotiating with a salvage yard for the possible purchase of a complete (but not running) engine for parts for my track loader (has matching starter and flywheel gear as well as many other parts) but because of the cost, must wait another month and hope nothing else gets in the way. Still using mom's truck as I am waiting on one more component to put my own truck back together.
My overall health is better than it had been over the winter, but I have a pulmonologist appointment in August in hopes of diagnosing my lung problems and finding a treatment. Thank you all for your prayers.
Montgomery, GaryPrevious Requests
Gary was sent home from the hospital last night and, although he has a long road of recovery from the heart surgery he is doing fairly well. Thank you for all of your prayers on behalf of Gary, Carol and their family.
Gary was moved from the ICU yesterday morning and is doing well enough that he may actually be released from the hospital within the next few days. Thank you for your continued prayers on behalf of the Montgomery family.
Gary was out of surgery as of 4 this afternoon and the doctor said everything went well. He is now in ICU, where he will be through Sunday. Your continuing prayers on behalf of the Montgomery family are very much appreciated.
Gary will be having quadruple by-pass heart surgery tomorrow (Friday 6/7). The angiogram that he had this morning showed a 99% blockage in one artery and significant blockages in the others. The good thing is that the doctor told Carol that Gary's heart itself is in very good shape. Please continue to keep both Gary and Carol in your prayers, as well as Sarah, who assists her mother Carol with her daily home dialysis.
O'Gainey-McTernan, DeborahPrevious Requests
Deborah’s heart function has increased from 10% to 15% in two weeks, thanks to God’s mercy! She is eating better, but is still struggling to taste food well. She is walking (unaided) for the first time, and the physical therapist says she is doing well. Her diabetes is slowly getting under control. She thanks everyone for their thoughts, cards, and prayers!
Plunkett, TrishPrevious Requests
Yesterday, I talked with Arabella, and she said that Ryan is doing so much better. She has been able take him out on a few outings. Arabella said that they were so surprised and happy to receive cards from all over the globe. It really made such a difference to them, and she wanted me to thank you all.
Williams, PaulettePrevious Requests
Paulette is having continued vision problems in addition to the difficulty in breathing and swollen feet. A CT scan of her lungs shows that they are free of blood clots. However, an MRI of her brain shows that the tumor is exactly the same size as it was before the radiation and chemo. Paulette is scheduled to see a nurse and doctor about the test results on Friday. She would appreciate your continued prayers for God's will to be done. Thank you.
Paulette is about the same; she continues to be extremely tired and weak, and has to force down food. She is scheduled to see a nurse on Wednesday, not only for blood tests, but also to hopefully find out why she is having so much trouble breathing. Please continue to pray for Paulette, and specifically about her breathing problems. Thank you.
