Dear prayer partners, it has been long overdue that I update you on how my husband is doing. I thank each of you for your prayers and pray that God blesses you for your faithfulness. It has been 10 1/2 months since my husband was discharged from the hospital. This is HUGE because it is the longest he has gone without having to be hospitalized in over 3 years. He was averaging a trip to the hospital every 3 months, and his stays were anywhere from a week to almost a month.
His Crohn’s is in remission, PRAISE God! His legs are healing, PRAISE God! He is weaning off the Prednisone and pain meds, PRAISE God! These are HUGE victories!! He has had a setback, his is having problems with a compressed nerve root in his L5, but is scheduled for a procedure tomorrow. Due to this recent setback he has not been very mobile resulting in a large weight gain, which has also created some breathing problems and fluid retention. I am NOT discouraged with this because I know that God is in control. He is in the midst of all of this. That is not to say that it’s all sunshine and lollipops, I would be lying if I said we are struggling with this but then we stop, breathe, pray, and realize that God has brought him so far and He is not done yet.
I ask that you continue to pray for Jose. That one day very soon he is able to wake up without bandages on his legs, able to take a deep cleansing breath, able to walk without struggling, has been able to come off a lot of the meds he is on, and that he can be more involved with our beautiful grandbabies.
Again, thank you, bless you, and may God richly reward your faithfulness.
Dear prayer partners, I have been asked to share a prayer request for Richelle. She needs to have surgery on her pancreas. We know that God is in control, we know that He is Jehovah Raphe our Healer. May God place His healing hands upon Richelle. May He give His wisdom to the doctors and caregivers. May He place His angels about Richelle and may He send the Comforter to give her peace. I pray for the family and friends of Richelle that God covers them in His peace and wraps His arms around them giving them His strength. In all things may His will be done as His will is perfect. He knows the plans He has for us. May He give us grace and mercy and may we open our ears and hearts to hear Him and to know Him. I ask these things in the name of His precious Son, Jesus Christ, amen.
Dear friends and prayer warriors, I ask you to lift up my husband in prayer. He suffers from a rare disease that has no cure and no real viable treatment options and is in constant chronic pain every single minute of every single day, BUT I know that God is in the midst and that He has the cure and treatment. I pray that however God wishes to heal or use my husband is perfected. If he chooses to heal by His hand, or by the hands of man, let it be completed in His time and way. I pray that the pain my husband is in is eliminated in Jesus’ mighty name. It has been nine long years that he has been suffering with this, and while we know that God is in control, we are still human and imperfect and lose sight and clarity and become weary. I pray for strength for both of us, as I, the caregiver also get weary. Should it be God’s plan for Jose to be healed by doctors, I pray that He places the right doctor(s) in our path with the right plan to heal him swiftly. May God’s mercy be upon Jose, may The Comforter embrace Jose and may God’s army of angels watch over Jose and protect him. May His peace surround Jose continually and may he hear the voice of God. May God continue to provide us with the finances to treat this disease as it is very costly. We give all thanks and praise to God for all that He does for us every day and thank each of you that lift us up in prayer as we know the power of prayer.
Dear prayer warriors, I wanted to give you an update. As of today, Gloria is doing much better. Her blood pressure is still a bit high, but she is out of the hospital and following up with various doctors.
She is so very grateful and thankful for everyone’s prayers, and is asking God to bless each and everyone of you for your faithfulness. She knows that God has her in His hands and gives Him all praise, glory and honor.
I will keep everyone posted with any updates and thank you all. May God bless your comings and goings and fill your storehouses to overflowing.

All praise and honor and glory to our God for His mercy and healing for Roxie. We just learned she made it through quadruple heart bypass surgery and is doing well. Thank you all for your prayers, may God bless you and reward you for your faithfulness and prayers. Keep praying that He continues to heal and restore Roxie and for strength for her and her family in Jesus’ matchless name.
Dear prayer partners, my dear friend Doris has asked that I reach out to everyone and ask for prayer for Roxie. She has suffered a major heart attack and is waiting to be transported to another hospital for surgery. We do not know what the day holds for any of us, but we do know Who holds us daily. May our Heavenly Father hold Roxie in His arms, and heal her according to His plans and will for her. May He guide the doctors and nurses with His wisdom and compassion and may His peace and strength surround her and her family and loved ones, in Jesus’ mighty name, amen.
