Prayer Request

A quick note to ask all of you to be in prayer for my nephew, Jimmy. He had a sinus infection this past December that went into his spine some way or other. It left him with stroke like symptoms, paralysis to be exact, so he has had to deal with that. He is on the mend and regaining all use of his legs and arms. However, when they took an MRI to check him out they discovered one of his kidneys had cancer. He had no symptoms and didn't know he had it. He is praising God because if they hadn't been looking at the other problem, the doctors said the kidney cancer would have progressed to a terminal state.

He is having his kidney removed Tuesday, January 4th. Please pray that the cancer is localised and that it will all be removed when they take out the kidney. He is such a wonderful, Godly man and we love him so much.

Thank you for all of your prayers.

Oh Miss Jean! I'm so sorry to hear about your nephew. A good friend of mine found kidney cancer by accident (like your nephew) quite a few years ago. She had her kidney out and she's doing great. Best Wishes to your family -- you'll have to keep us updated.

We will definitely be praying Jean. This is one example of how God uses everything for good!

Praying for the other request that you emailed me about too.

So many hurting --so much love and comfort the Lord desires to give for those who will receive it.

bee blessed

So sorry to hear about this turn of events. I will be hoping for a successfull rehabilitation from the infection and recovery from the cancer. It is amazing how treatments have come along over the past years, so he has every chance of beating it.
