Brethren in MyanmarPrevious Requests
Please continue to pray for the four girls that were in Yangon. Three of them were forced to travel back to their home villages last Friday due to a law requiring families to register any overnight guests. There has been no word yet as to whether they arrived safely since almost all internet access is cut off. Both Kachin state and the Karen people in Kayin state have seen increased attacks by the Myanmar army in the last few days. Please pray for the safety of the church of God brethren in those areas. Thank you.
While the house remodeling has been on hold due to lack if financing (mom's car got a bent axle, and other expenses) we just yesterday discovered that the new breaker box we had purchased was not sufficient for the intended purposes of the remodel, so that had to be ordered anew, and today, late in the afternoon, the alternator on my track loader seized up, also causing the belt to fail, so now I must find the best means to repair this issue as well. I had just recently repaired a blown hydraulic hose, as well as other issues, and the end of the day was finished with a pick and shovel by hand, so I am additionally grateful that God (by way of your prayers) has intervened to help me with my life-long health issues stemming from destructive lung damage at age 12. Thank you one and all for your continued prayers and other means of support!
Henry, HowardLargo, Florida
Please keep Howard in your prayers; he is scheduled to have a heart test tomorrow. Additionally, he has been having extreme stomach distress for the past four weeks, bad enough that he has gone to the emergency room. So far, the doctors have been unable to find the source of the problem. While probiotics have helped some, Howard has still lost a significant amount of weight. Your prayers for Howard are appreciated.
Holley, LawrencePrevious Requests
I went to take the rapid anti-body test this afternoon. I’m thankful to God that the results came back negative for COVID-19. My sister’s test also came back negative. I am requesting continued prayers for my niece. Thank you.
Lawrence has been informed by his employer that two of his co-workers have tested positive for COVID-19. He has scheduled an appointment to be tested this afternoon. He would appreciate your prayers for God’s guidance through these trials. Thank you.
Lawrence is asking for prayers for his niece, Kimberly, who has tested positive for coronavirus. She will be quarantining for the prescribed amount of time. Lawrence would also appreciate prayers for God's protection for his sister and nephew, who share the same apartment with Kimberly. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Morse, EmmaSparta, Georgia
Emma is asking for your prayers on behalf of her daughters, Melinda and Diane. Their father died yesterday and they are grieving deeply. Please pray for God's guidance and comfort of them in dealing with this loss. Thank you in advance.
Pearson, LauraPrevious Requests
On Thursday, Laura is scheduled to to have an ultrasound on her neck and another specifically on her thyroid gland because nodules (too small to biopsy) were found on an ultrasound in 2018. She would appreciate your prayers that the nodules are nothing serious, according to God's will. In addition, Laura has suffered from a cough for the past few months that she has been unable to get over. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
Priester, JamesOrlando, FL
James' nephew Cam Priester (27) will be having a biopsy today to help the doctor determine how to treat his failing kidney. It is currently functioning at 17% and they would prefer he not be put on dialysis. Thank you!
Puzon, MelissaPrevious Requests
Please pray for Melissa Puzon, a CGG member in the Philippines. Melissa started feeling poorly with a fever and headache Tuesday evening. Her fever seems to have subsided, but her condition is described as "treacherous" in that even if she feels OK, it may suddenly return. Please also pray that her mother (91), son (28), daughter (25), as well her nieces, will not catch what ails her. Thank you very much.
Sakala, MusondaLusaka, Zambia
We have largely survived the rainy season by your prayers, and for this we are very grateful. By the end of this month we will be officially out of the we season.
I'm requesting prayers for Bupe, who urgently needs God's intervention and help for a personal battle; that God may give her the strength she needs to do her part. In addition, she continues to battle with health issues. Thank you in advance.
June is still weak and having some trouble sleeping, but says that there has been a slight improvement. The brethren in Trinidad are thankful for all the prayers that have been offered up on her behalf, and ask that you continue to pray for her healing, for her husband, Fernley, and close family members who are looking after her. They are deeply grateful to God for His merciful intervention and provision.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the brethren for prayer lifted to the Father on my behalf.
I was attending to my 90lb dog who has a hot spot, and in kicking back, I was thrown to the retaining wall and busted open the back of my head in a few areas. I was taken to the emergency room, bleeding profusely. They were unable to stop the bleeding for quite a while, and after being banded up I was taken for a CT scan, which thankfully showed no intracranial bleeding or fracture. After about another half an hour the bleeding started to slow and they were able to stitch me up.
I am at home, quite weak from the blood loss but on the mend. Please continue to pray for my complete healing and that no complications would arise from the incident, and that I will be able to discern what the Father is saying to me. My sincere thanks again.
While in her yard, June fell backwards and hit the back of her head on the concrete walkway. Her head received a bad cut and she has been taken to the hospital, where doctors are attending to her. According to her husband, Fernley, she lost quite a bit of blood, but never lost consciousness. The doctors did the required tests/scans and are about to close the cut with stitches. June would appreciate your prayers on her behalf. Thank you.
Wasserfall, Hilda (88)Western Cape, South Africa
Thank you for your prayers on Hilda's behalf. After the previous prayer request, Hilda starting feeling much better. However, she just found out from one of her daughters, Rita, that her other daughter, Louise (in New Zealand), has died. Louise had suffered with a lung problem for some time. Please pray for God's comfort and strengthening of Hilda and Rita during their time of loss. Thank you.
