Prayer Request


My brother in law Eric has Valley Fever. It is a disease that is caused by breathing in a spore that is in the dry areas of select parts of the country. He is now at the hospital having a cat scan and a spinal tap to let the doctors see if he once again, has menengitis or not. You see, this disease rears its ugy head in the form of non-contagious spinal menengitis. He has been sick since Sunday and was very ill last night.

Please pray for a healing, pray for peace for both Eric and my sister Jennifer. She is so heartbroken about being once again back at the hospital. He is self employed and without sick leave or a company to fall back on, the financial stresses take a toll as well.

Please keep them all in your prayers,

I will pray. I'm sorry they are dealing with this, but at the same time I know God has them in his hand. I'll pray they feel his peace today.

This is so scary for them! I will certainly pray for them. My husband and I were just talking about the trials of our faith and how God says that they are much more precious than gold. It's hard to believe when we are right in the middle of one. May people gather around them and encourage them in their faith at this time. God bless!
