Criswell, KathyPrevious Requests
Please keep Kathy Criswell in your prayers. Following a biopsy, it was determined she has a cancerous lump in her breast. Although the extent of the cancer is not known at this time Kathy and her husband Frank are looking to God for His intervention and healing and would appreciate your prayers on her behalf. As Kathy wrote, “As in all things, we look to God.” Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Diggins, RhondaPrevious Requests
Thank you for keeping me in your prayers. It has been apparent during the recovery period up to this point that prayers are being heard and answered. The pain from the surgery is getting more manageable, although there are days that are worse than others, the good days are outweighing those not so good days. Thank you to those who have reached out to me. It is clear God’s Spirit is being used in positive ways and we are forever grateful. Thank you for the outpouring of your love.
Hines, SondraPrevious Requests
Jack was allowed to go home (with oxygen) on Thursday. Thank you for your prayers on his behalf.
[Jack]'s back out of ICU and the doctors are hoping he can go home within the week.
Merritt, SherilynPrevious Requests
I currently work as a teacher at a university in Joplin, Missouri. Thus far, they have stated that they would not, at this time, mandate the [COVID-19] vaccine. However, as more universities begin to do so, I anticipate this mandate may eventually hit where I work as well. Also, I am a dental hygienist by trade, so it may not be feasible to go back into private practice without the same scenario. I am requesting prayers that God’s will be done in whatever outcome plays out, and that in the event I am released from my job for refusal to take the shot, I may gain suitable employment elsewhere. Thank you.
Myers, KimOregon City, Oregon
In addition to suffering from COVID-19, Kim also has salmonella. His doctor wants to re-admit and re-hydrate him. Please continue to pray for him.
[Kim] was severely dehydrated and they released him today after 4 bags of saline! He still has Covid but he’s so much better. He just ate a big dinner. God has heard our prayers and has been merciful. Please pray he is healed of Covid as he’s had it 11 weeks and his fever is constant at 104.
Please continue to pray for Kim. He was admitted to the hospital with sepsis, extremely low blood pressure, and high fever. As a result of his previous lymphoma, he is immune-compromised, and has had a very difficult time with the coronavirus. He was put on very strong IV antibiotics and other medication, and his blood pressure has improved. Please pray for his healing and for God's guidance of the medical staff. Thank you.
Sakala, BupeLusaka, Zambia
Please pray for Bupe, who has flu-like symptoms and a fever. She uses a great deal of public transportation, so we pray for God's intervention. Thank you.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
Thank you for your prayers on behalf of my family. After finally having his operation, my step-Dad went for his review last Thursday. He is healing very well and is up and about.
On Saturday, Bupe was found with a bacterial infection in her system and was immediately given an injection and put on anti-biotics. Today she is showing signs of improvement. She has exams in 7 days and needs to be well enough to prepare for them. Please pray for her recovery and exam preparations. Thank you.
Shanks, BarbaraMontgomery, Alabama
I want to thank everyone for their prayers! God certainly blessed me with a VERY mild case of Covid. I only ran a low grade fever for just a few days. And had almost NO congestion. I'm back in the saddle (my favorite outdoor activity). We had a 19.3 mile Bicycle Club ride today, my first since May 2nd. Felt GREAT to be back! Again, I'm very grateful for all your prayers and sweet gestures of loving friendship.
