Prayer Request:

I just received a call from Becky. Pastor Kevin and Jan were in an accident. They were rear ended at a red light while on their motorcycle. Jan has a lot of back pain and has been taken to the hospital for a CT Scan. Becky said that Pastor Kevin is waiting for a local Nazarene preacher for transportation. That is the only information at this time. Please pray that Jan’s test does not reveal anything serious and that her pain is manageable. Pray that Pastor Kevin has not been injured. Pray that he is able to get where he needs to be quickly and safely. Please pray for the family, calm their fears, and give them comfort at this time. Thank you.


I spoke with Kitty a few minutes ago. She asked me to thank everyone for their prayers. She had a praise that Tom’s test were good and he is being transported back to Windber Woods. Remember them in prayer as they go to a post op appointment in Pittsburgh at 10am tomorrow. Pray that his foot is healing when they remove the cast and that his pain is manageable. Pray also for safe travels. Thank you.

Prayer Request:

We received a prayer request for Tom Miller. Tom had surgery on his foot again on Tuesday and now is in the recovery process. The doctors are looking for a pain medicine that works best for Tom and they are also searching for a facility where Tom is able to recover until he is able to come home. We ask that you pray for Tom and a quick and complete recovery. Pray that the pain medicine works as needed and does not cause any reactions. We also ask that you pray for a facility to be found where Tom can rest and be cared for until he is able to come home. Also pray for Kitty and his family as they are surely concerned.

Thank You


Prayer Request:

Hello Everybody

I received a prayer request for my niece Tesha Holderbaum and her husband Kavan. Tesha is expecting their second child and her latest ultrasound showed some things that they may need to be concerned about. She will be scheduling some additional tests in the near future in an effort to ease these concerns.

We are asking that you pray first for this unborn child and that it will grow and mature into a healthy newborn baby. Pray also for Tesha as she deals with the anxiety and worry for her child. Pray that she will receive good news and that she will not need to worry any longer. Finally pray for Kavan and their son Wesley and the rest of the family, as they are also looking forward to the addition to their family. Pray that all will be resolved by God’s tender touch.

Thank You

Pastor Kevin
