Prayer Request

We received a prayer request for the niece of Ashley and Jimmy Endress; her name is Taylor. Taylor is a 5 year old girl who suffered 3rd degree burns to her arms and hand after trying to retrieve something from the microwave on Sunday evening. She was at the burn center in Pittsburgh and had surgery Tuesday morning. They used pig skin to cover her wounds. Taylor goes back next week to evaluate if she needs a skin graft.

We ask that you pray for this child; that she would be healed and that the pain she is experiencing is able to easily be controlled. Also pray for the surgical team and medical staff who will be caring for her to be able to do whatever is necessary to help her heal as quickly as possible and without scarring. Pray also for the parents and family of Taylor as they worry about her wellbeing and her recovery.

Thank You.

Nazarene Compassionate Ministries: Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian Response

Last week, Hurricane Dorian moved slowly north, causing days of prolonged destruction over the Bahamas before making landfall in North Carolina. By the time it reached the United States, the storm had weakened considerably. Early satellite data shows that between 75 to 100 percent of the buildings and infrastructure in the worst-hit areas of the Bahamas were damaged.

Recovery from this much damage will take years.

Early reports from the Bahamas indicate that all five of the Nazarene churches there were impacted by the hurricane’s Category 5 winds or damaged by serious flooding, with four to five feet of water inundating most buildings. A Nazarene assessment team has already traveled to the Bahamas, bringing aid packages with food and hygiene items. While they are there, they will be able to determine the best response.
Hurricane Dorian, which is one of the strongest on record, is the first major hurricane to make landfall this year. As the Atlantic hurricane season continues, it is possible that even more damage will come to areas already damaged by Dorian or in the 2018 season.

Prayer Request

Hello everybody. Pastor Kevin received this prayer request for Lynn Sowden, son of Terry & Darleen Sowden. He’s been hospitalized for a week and has been diagnosed with cancer.  Lynn has developed severe complications and is facing immediate emergency surgery. The need for prayer is urgent. Thank you for your prayers.



Prayer Request

Tessa sent me a prayer request for Sherry Hopkins. Sherry was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer. Sherry was a friend of my sister Karen’s, and lost a sister to cancer before that. She became really close with Karen’s family after Karen was diagnosed with cancer. Sherry will be having surgery on September 30 to remove part of the affected area and is really scared for her and her husband Gary.

We are asking you to pray for Sherry to be healed, pray that the Lord would heal her body of this cancer. Pray that the cancer is contained and that they are able to remove all of the cancer from her body. Pray that whatever treatment they pursue for the future will be effective and that Sherry will be cancer free. Also pray for her and Gary to draw closer together as husband and wife and also that they would draw closer to the Lord in this time.

Thank You

Pastor Kevin

Zachary was admitted to the hospital after a cow stepped on his foot. He went to an outpatient clinic which immediately sent him to the ER. They started IV Antibiotics immediately to in hopes of preventing any kind of infection in the bone. Please pray that he will be cleared of any infection and the injury to his foot would be healed as quickly as possible.
