Delicious writes,

The doe which sustained the eye injury is healing up nicely. She can almost see clearly out of the eye now, and the cloudiness is clearing up well. We have only one doe left to give birth; we are praying that she goes full term and delivers healthy babies.

What caused the miscarriages in the other does is unknown, and without a working veterinarian in our area, there is no way to find out. We contacted a veterinarian office about 50 miles away, but they have not gotten back with us as they had promised to set up a farm visit, so we are wondering if they forgot or if they are swamped with people coming to them. Monday I shall reach out to them again to see if they can come check our farm for any physical issues which might be contributing to the high infant mortality rate we are experiencing here.

Mom is waiting on the results of a biopsy. The dermatologist suspects basal cell carcinoma, but there is no way to know until the tests come back.

Thank you all again.

Anne writes to express

heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the brethren who offered prayers for me and my family in the recent loss of my son due to a vehicular accident in the UK. In such a tragedy, one can hardly find the words to pray and it’s comforting to know that our faithful brethren are lifting us up in prayer to the Father for His tender love in our immediate need. I ask for your continued prayers for the family as we journey through our period of grief.


 

Hunt, Shirley

Amarillo, Texas
Previous Requests

15-Jan-22

Shirley writes,

I went to the eye surgeon yesterday and I may not gain back much more sight in my right eye. I could use prayers again. I go back in a month. All the inflammation will be gone by then and we can see if glasses can help correct my vision.


12-Jan-22

Please continue to pray for Shirley. Her eyes are not improving, even though her doctor says her vision should be getting better by now. The Hunts would be grateful for your prayers for God's intervention and healing. Thank you.


 

Hunter, Christian and Lacey

Previous Requests

25-Jan-22

Lacey writes,

We are so relieved to report that we are on the mend. My contractions have calmed down and we were all able to rest last night. Rosalie did get sick in the night so we are thinking it was a virus of some sort. Thanks so much for all of the prayers and to those of you who reached out.


24-Jan-22

Christian and Lacey Hunter are asking for your prayers on their behalf because they both became violently ill last night with a stomach virus of some sorts. They are also greatly concerned because Lacey is 37 weeks pregnant with their third child. Thank you in advance for your prayers!

Previous Requests

Mottram, Tom

Previous Requests

24-Jan-22

Please pray for Tom Mottram, who has ongoing heart problems and whose heart went into atrial fibrillation last week. He was scheduled for a procedure today, but it may not be needed because his medication seems to be helping to keep his heart beat regulated. Your prayers for God's intervention and guidance are appreciated.

We are sorry to report that Marisa Filinger's cousin Regino Pacson died on January 2. Please remember his family in your prayers in their time of grief. Thank you.


 

Priester, James

Columbia, SC
Previous Requests

21-Jan-22

James Priester is asking for prayers for God's intervention on his family's behalf. His 27-year old nephew's kidneys are only functioning at 17% and a kidney transplant is unlikely. In addition, they received an eviction notice and need to find a place to live. Thank you in advance.


 

Purcil, Lauro

The Philippines
Previous Requests

14-Jan-22

Lauro Purcil, a member of the United Church of God in The Philippines, is requesting prayers from the brethren. He was recently hospitalized due to a weak heart and COVID-19. Although now recovering at home from mild COVID-19, he is requesting prayers for his heart condition. Results of his second ECG show that he has heart failure and the prognosis is very poor. He is relying on God's mercy and loving intervention for his healing and full recovery. The prayers and concern of the brethren really matter to him and he appreciates them so much. He sends his gratitude to all.

Sakala, Musonda

Lusaka, Zambia
Previous Requests

25-Jan-22

A tropical storm is headed for Zambia, and Musonda is asking for prayers for their property since they live in a low-lying area. Thank you in advance.


12-Jan-22

Musonda writes,

Please pray for my Mum, whose health seems to be declining. The current issue being tackled is hypothyroidism. Please pray for God's intervention and help.

Also, there is yet another heavy downpour in Lusaka. Please pray that by God's mercy we may escape. Thank you.

Update:

I am at a loss of words as to how to explain our escape from today's floods. There was a heavy downpour from 7 am to 2pm in most parts of the city. Upon rains coming to an end, I went to inspect the road frontage and found the water neatly flowing into the small drainage in our street while other parts of the neighborhood are clearly flooded. Thank you for your prayers.

During the heavy downpour, my Mum visited the doctor. We were advised that while adjustments have been made to her medication it, will take a while for her to feel better. She is to have more tests done on the 25th of this month. Thank you.

Thomas, Lorna

Cape Town, South Africa
Previous Requests

20-Jan-22

Lorna writes,

I really appreciate and thank everyone for their prayers. I still have to lie down or else I get dizzy. I am not eating solids yet. I am still on fruit juices and an electrolyte mixture and a little honey, morning and night. I tried a little thin soup tonight. I think my sleep pattern has improved the last two nights. I slept a few hours at a time rather than only a couple. Looking forward to being healed and up and about. Again, thanks to all for their concern and prayers.


17-Jan-22

Please pray for Lorna Thomas, younger sister of Geoff Neilson. Lorna writes,

I need prayer and a healing miracle. I have had a health crisis over the last ten days. I am dizzy if not lying down and can't walk unaided even the several steps to the toilet. I have not been able to eat during this time, but have only had a few periodic sips of liquid or juice and electrolyte mixture. Thanks.


 

Wheeler, John

Previous Requests

Sharon writes,

I am moved to tears by the wonderful responses from brethren, friends and family who have opened their hearts to us. There is no way I will ever be able to repay your love and kindness for the prayers and heartfelt love you have offered up for me. My words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the notes and offers of help you have sent my way.

There is good news on two fronts. First, tests have shown that I have only one kind of cancer - though it is widespread. Secondly, if I continue to respond well to treatment, I may be free of pain for the most part in six months! I welcome your prayers as we continue to beseech our Loving Father through His Son, Jesus Christ, to remove this malady from me. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous person avails much.
