  1. Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

    All Praise, Worship, Thanks and Prayer belong to Your Glorious, Righteous and Holy name. You alone are Good. Without you there is nothing but evil and death. With you, we can overcome evil and death. No one on this earth deserves your Love, much less your Mercy and Grace. Thank you Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, for living a full human life without one single sin to be the one and only to accomplish that for the sake of mankind. Use us in a way to serve You and glorify Your eternal domain.

    Amen

  13. Sarah says:

    Dusty…thank you for praying!

  14. Dusty says:

    your welcome…are you wrapping up your homeschooling or have you finished for the school year?

  15. Dusty says:

    My little one(not so little any more) is teaching at a Christian School-teaching sign language to the high schoolers.

  16. Sarah says:

    We have a couple more weeks…everything will come to quite a stop, suddenly. We will go from practices four nights a week…games on Saturdays…to nothing. We won’t know what to do! And school stops the same week as well.

  17. Sarah says:

    I have a good friend here who has a ministry with sign language, interpretation. She goes down to Mexico frequently to work with a deaf orphanage and deaf school.

  18. Dusty says:

    That is how she got interested in signing….we went on a mission trip to a deaf school in Mexico.

    I visited our former pastor last week. He is waiting for a kidney transplant and is on home dialysis. Recently he had a heart attack and then a stent placed. Arteries in his leg ruptured which led to an amputation of that leg below the knee. He has already lost half of his foot on the other leg. He has a finger that’s in danger as of last week. A result of attaching a vein to an artery for a different type dialysis. This cut circulation to his hand and thus the problem. He sleeps in his converted garage because of not being able to get him in the house due to stairs, etc. His wife sleeps out there with him and readies him nightly for dialysis and tends to all of his needs.

    Last night she had a heart attack. The last I heard is she may receive a stent or need open heart surgery. Please pray for this family as this is a lot to deal with all at once. Thank you.

  20. erunner says:

    Haven’t spoken with my cousin since I posted. He called once so I’m sure we will speak again. Belinda’s surgery is set for the end of this month. They want to do an elbow replacement as an out patient procedure and we’re trying to fight that. Things are quiet as far as my mother goes. Still taking her to do things. Thank you for the prayers.

  21. erunner says:

    Update on my friend’s wife. Thank you to anyone who prayed.

    “A main artery feeding her heart went into a spasm and caused the heart to “balloon” out and stretch, causing heart damage.

    It mimicked a heart attack. The damage mentioned above will heal itself in about 3 months. What causes a spasm of an artery? Stress, according to the cardiologist. Keep praying for her full recovery.”

  22. Sarah says:

    E…I just saw your request about your friend’s wife. My word. Praying for rest for her, and for that full recovery!! So many people with such tough situations they are walking through. Praying for generous grace for them today.

    Thank you for the updates on all the other people, continuing to pray for them.

    For the person who is caring for the husband and suffering her own medical issues. They need to ask to speak to the medical social worker about getting home health care and an IHSS worker. They are eligible for this —- just needs to contact the social services department in the hospital.

    IHSS (In Home Supportive Services) can be anyone this couple knows and trust. The designated person would run errands, fix meals, clean, and even take them to their medical appointments, and more, while being paid. Surely someone from the church is looking to earn some money while pouring the love in their heart upon this couple to ease the stress and toll it is taking upon them.

    Note: Social Services Department in this sense has nothing to do with the government or having to qualify for these benefits. Social Workers are employed in many different sectors, private, government, and profit/non-profit organizations, agencies, and community facilities, such as hospitals, shelters, salvation army, churches, industrial or corporate environments.
