Prayer Request

We have a couple of prayer requests.
 
The first is for Betty Thomas, Kitty Miller’s older sister. Betty’s cancer has come back and they have placed her in the hospital. We are asking that you pray for Betty and they family. Pray that Betty would be completely healed and that the Lord’s will is done. Please pray that she would be comforted, strengthened physically and encouraged spiritually as the medical team works with her. Pray that the family would be comforted as well and that their hope is found in the Lord; that He would give them peace for each new day.
 
Also, Arlene has shared an update for Leslie (Deitman) Castro; she is awaiting a transplant which could happen at any time in the next few days. Pray for Leslie to remain strong, and that the comfort of the Lord will be upon her, her family, and the family of the donor heart.

 

We received a prayer request from Carolyn Mock for one of her son’s friends, named Luke Stiffler. Luke was flown to Hershey with a bleed on his brain Tuesday evening. That is all we know at this point in time. We are asking you to lift Luke up in prayer, praying for God’s grace and mercy. Pray that the doctors will be able to correctly treat his problem, that the healing process would begin, that Luke would be completely healed and that he will make a full recovery. Pray also for his family and friends to be comforted during this time as Luke is a young man and to have such an injury with somebody this young is never expected.

 

Thank you.
