Prayer Update

A cross marks the location where Officer David Payne fell mortally wounded on July 23, 1988.

Warm greetings, in His Name,

It is now August and time continues to move ever so rapidly! After several months of doctors and tests, we have been given the date: Tuesday, August 7th, will be the start of the chemotherapy treatments.

Annual follow-up tests, including several bone marrow biopsies, kept track of the M.G.U.S., the pre-cursor to Myeloma, diagnosed in late 2002, following Ray’s time spent at “Ground Zero” (the World Trade Center – 9/11).

There is no known cure for Multiple Myeloma – cancer in the blood and the bone marrow – but our oncologist says “full remission is what we can expect.” “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37

We would appreciate your continued, faithful prayers… our prayer and desire is that we would be a good witness to all the nurses and doctors we will come in contact with … we want to be “ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” 1 Peter 3:15

We did make it to Maine last week for the 3rd Annual 5K Road Run in memory of our son, David, and daughters Ginny and Judy were there, too! Lewiston Police Department also sponsored a breakfast following in honor of Officer Paul Simard. Many more photos are available on the Lewiston Police Dept’s Facebook page.

Recently Ray did a memorial service for a police officer’s young wife who died of cancer – they knew of Ray’s cancer, so there was a bond… we want to continue to reach our law enforcement community to show that there is a Loving God Who cares for them. Once again, thank you for your faithfulness in prayer and support.

In His Loving Care,

Barb and Ray
2 Timothy 1:12
