Prayer update

To our faithful praying friends,

This has been a very different and difficult week.

On Wednesday afternoon we received a call letting us know that the young lady, a hospice patient we have been ministering to, had taken a turn for the worse. Then Friday morning we received a call that she had went to be with her Savior. This came quickly and the family is struggling as they deal with this. Pray also for us as we minister to them.

This morning we received a call that our former Regional Director, Stan Spiess had "graduated" and now stands in the presence of his Lord and Savior. Below is the note from Jan.
Greetings Dear Friends,
At 4:03 this morning, Stan graduated to be with His Lord. We praise the Lord for his witness to everyone around him during his battle with cancer. God has used him in an amazing way to influence others. Thanks for your continued prayers along this line. He has loved you and appreciated you so much. Please continue to pray for me as I continue on without the love of my life. At this time, I plan to stay around and continue his Prayer Chaplain work with American Missionary Fellowship. God bless! Jan

Love in Christ,
Bill & Mary
