From Jim in Scotland:
Skip, if you think it appropriate could you pass this request on to the community.
My friend Francis a tough old North Sea fisherman now in his 70′s has adrenal problems, ischaemic heart disease, cancer of the bladder. Five months ago he and his wife Liz had their first grandchild, born prematurely 2lbs 7 oz with a hole in the heart, significant growth hormone problems, and a kidney situation which is in need of urgent treatment, but that is not possible until she (Neave) has grown. Now 5months old and is still only 5lbs.
We had our regular study/prayer meeting last night and Liz announced that baby Neave attended the hospital yesterday and her parents were told that there is also a dislocated hip in the situation. Francis and Liz have been running back and forward to the hospital since Neave was born and are quite exhausted.
Could I ask the community to hold these dear Christians and their situation up before the LORD.
At times like these I wonder just how much can one family take. Liz’s brother is in full time ministry and her niece an obstetrician has been in Afghanistan for several years ‘under the wire’ doing trying to assist the Afghan women and children.
Yours in the LORD
St. Andrews, Scotland
AND ONE MORE:
Our sister, Melanie, who moved to Spokane, wrote to say she is very discouraged and has no clear direction. She asked for prayer. Please lift her up.
