Dear Church Family,
I want to ask for your prayers for my family. About two and a half weeks ago, on Father’s Day, my mother informed me that she had received negative results from a recent medical test. Since then we have found that she has a tumor in her lung that will require surgery. That surgery is currently scheduled for next Wednesday, July 10, at Frye Hospital. I had planned to mention this on Sunday as we were gathered for worship, but, since my mom was with us, I figured I would become a bumbling mess and decided not to. However, my mother has taken this news much better than the rest of us (which is not out of character for her) and has shared this with someone of you already.
I ask that above all else you take time to pray for my mother, father, sister, and the nine grandchildren. We are not entirely sure of the prognosis as of yet, but I am confident that our God is a big God who kills cancer. He is “able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). When we consider our God, we know that “the works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy” (Psalm 111:7). Rachel and I appreciate everything that you have done for us since we arrived here in Icard and I am grateful that as we go through this difficult season you will be with us.
