May Your name be glorified in all this mess.Thank You for your presence with them. Amen. Update posted on 7/12/2020 M has moved back down to their finished basement.

Dave and I are doing well. We are still adjusting to no outpatient groups and no physio for Dave. We try to get outside each day for a walk. I am thankful to have the psws coming morning and evening to help with Dave so that I have time to do errands and get groceries. Rachel and Jonathan are doing well. Rachel did really well with her past semester. She has 2 months left in her programme, supposedly for a placement, but it will be with online materials, assignments, and interaction with team members from her class. Pray for this adjustment. Jonathan was looking for work before the corona lock down. Pray that something might be possible when some of the restrictions start to be relaxed. Thank you for your prayers. Linda
Update posted on 7/8/2020: Dave and Linda are surviving this heat and celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary. Jon is starting work next week. Please pray that all goes well. Rachel returned back home safely and finishes her schooling in August; she will be looking for work after that. Thank you for your prayers for this family and may they continue as we move into summer. Ruth

Please pray for A. She is only 47 and the mother of three young daughters. For unknown reasons, at least so far, her liver is failing. She has to have paracentesis to remove the fluid from her abdomen. Please pray that the reason for the failure is found, that effective treatment may be found, and that she will not need a liver translplant.
Update posted on 7/6/2020: We were able to spend time with A this weekend. Although the test results are improving, she looks like a walking skeleton. Because your many prayers are appreciated, we are asking you to continue them, please.

Praise God. Katie has been in contact with her parents on several occasions. Her parents are moving and there are boxes belonging to Katie still at home. She says That she will come either Wednesday, 1st July or Saturday 4th. This will be the first time in her presence for 6 years. Heavenly Father, grant the meeting will take place and much good will come out of it. She is still fragile in her mental state so please Lord, guide the parents to do the right things. To you be all Glory and Praise Amen. Update posted 7/5/2020 Praise the Lord! Katie did visit and it was pleasant. She seemed very calm and happy. Her parents will be visiting her this week to deliver the rest of her boxes. Father, how we earnestly pray that full contact will soon happen. To Thee all praise and Glory. Amen

My dear friend Barb had another MRI on her pancreas and the tumour has grown. They plan to operate, but a time has not been set yet because of Covid-19. Please pray for a date for surgery and for a safe result. Lord please guide the surgeons hands as it is a delicate operation. Also please provide care and comfort for Barb and her husband and children. I pray for complete healing. In Jesus name I ask. Amen.
Update posted on 7/3/2020: Thank you for your prayers for my friend Barb. The specialist, after reviewing her scans and MRIs, feels that the surgery would most likely be too dangerous for her at 87 and has said that he feels the spots on her liver are not cancer and the other growth is perhaps a bubble of some kind. They will do another MRI but we ask for prayers for peace, comfort and a miracle. She is in a happy state because of no surgery and perhaps the doctor is being kind and letting her live without the worry until the Lord calls her to her heavenly home. To us he said she would probably not survive surgery. Blessings to all of you.
