Prayer Request

Warm greetings, once again, in His Name…

Less than a month ago we sent out a prayer request asking you to remember some special health needs. Recent annual follow-up blood and other tests regarding Ray’s time at “Ground Zero” (the World Trade Center – 9/11) indicated elevated problems. He was diagnosed with M.G.U.S. in late 2002, which is a pre-cursor to myeloma.

The kidney doctor and the oncologist said that blood tests now show severe kidney problems, and Ray was being further tested to determine for the advance and treatment of multiple myeloma. Over the years he has had several bone marrow biopsies.

We got the results of the one that was done two weeks ago yesterday. The oncologist told us that it showed that Ray now has multiple myeloma. It is a cancer of the blood and bones. He will have four months of weekly chemotherapy. It is likely that he will progress into “complete remission.”

We definitely appreciate your continued prayer and your encouragement, and will let you know how things progress. Please remember Barb, also, as all these things weigh heavily on her and her physical and spiritual needs for extra strength and stamina.

As David of old exalted God – knowing with assurance that he walked in VICTORY … so we are in His loving care …

“Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be Thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine; Thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and Thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of Thee, and Thou reignest over all; and in Thine hand is power and might; and in Thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.” I Chronicles 29:10-12

In His Blessed Name,

Barb and Ray
II Timothy 1:12

    Dear Ray and Barb, We lift you up in prayer that God will put His healing hand on you and keep you in his care. We pray for your strength Barb as you support Ray. You will never know how much we look forward to seeing you both a Parents Retreat and your ministry there. God Bless You. Prov 16:24
