    please remember in prayer…

    Michael – Went to the Oregon Health Sciences University to have tests on my heart tomorrow. They will be determining if I can have non invasive valve replacement surgery or if I must have open heart surgery.
    I had a major scare and I have to make some decisions quickly.
    It’s a long drive…I ask for prayers that I will get wise counsel.
    I’ll be MIA for a while here…

    Michael – Miss Kitty has gone home to Jesus

    bob1 – I’m having a procedure done this week because I’ve been having swallowing and coughing issues. I’m kinda nervous.

    Michael – Tom Stipe has gone home to the Lord. Pray for his family and friends. We will all miss him.

    Em – my daughter on City Council – the hassling continues… She supports the maintenance of their police dept. not a popular stance in much of the Puget Sound area these days, but i confess that i don’t see the benefit in eliminating law enforcement.

    Linnea – every joint in my body in pain. It continued to get worse and initial blood tests show I may have an autoimmune disorder. I can’t get in to see a rheumatologist until the end of March and the pain has almost rendered me non-functional. Will you pray God relieves the pain? I can’t get in to see a rheumatologist until the end of the March. Please pray for my husband, too, as he’s taken over all my work.

    Captain Kevin –Had a colonoscopy. Dr. found and removed 9 polyps. Follow-up with dr this coming Thursday to find out the pathology… job related difficulties, housing situation, pain everywhere, depression, I’ve lost 26 lbs in the last 5 months, and not because I’m trying. I had been wanting to lose weight, but not this way. Honestly, I’m afraid.

    Everstudy – Update on my request…The daughter has been located, but told the police that she is not a missing person and does not want to be looked for. Because she is 18, the missing person case is closed. Understandably, the family is heartbroken, so prayers for all appreciated

    Bob Sweat – a church in Iowa has contacted me about a pastoral position. They have watched me teach via a Zoom session where I told them that the basis for me to accept a call to pastor them would not only be based on God’s direction but also the opportunity for my wife and me to meet the people. Their committee met and have unanimously agreed to fly us to Iowa. I am feeling both blessed and scared. I am posting this on PP because many of you have faithfully prayed and encouraged me over the years. Please pray that my passion to serve the Lord in this capacity would not cloud my judgement.

    Em – Need prayer cover up here in the mountains – my daughter (nurse) went out to go to work and noticed what looked like oil on the ground. Someone had drained all the oil out of her car AND her truck She going to work in my car which just had a new engine installed – hoping they didn’t empty it also. We’ve got people moving up here now that aren’t good folk, to put it mildly… and we do need prayer for protection now

    Erunner – Our brother in law who is in his early 50’s has learned that his carotid artery is 70% blocked. It appears he will be undergoing surgery. They have also found an issue with his heart. He’s a believer with a gentle and wise spirit.
