    A Praise report! My dad, James T. Embree had a vascular test yesterday and everything veinwise looks good! They will now schedule an operation on his foot. Please be in prayer for him, mom, and the team of caregivers we have had to gather to help take care of both of them 24/7.

    Dear Brother Miles;

    I wish to request prayer for the wife , of a man I just met today.His name is Peter. I met Peter as he installed gas service at a rental home I own in New Albany. It was cold and biiter when Peter arrived this morning but he was very upbeat friendly and cheerful. Seemed to be carefree. It caught me greatly by surprise when later in conversation he confided in me that his wife needed to get to the Mayo clinic as soon as possible because of seepage from a pancreatic cancer procedure she was undergoing. He said she could not get the treatment needed in this area and was at the point of death when the doctors at Mayo were discovered. Peter said he didn’t have any vacation left and thats why he had to make the trip on the weekend. I asked if he would like us to pray for this situation and he was very grateful and pleased that we would . Peters’ wife name is Lynn.
    Thank you and God bless all.

    Richard Pinches was taken to the hospital about five or six weeks ago due to infections in his lungs and was added on the transparent list just recently. However, his health is still in bad shape.

    About several weeks ago, the doctors refused to allow Richard Pinches to go on the transplant (not transparent) list until he lost four pounds. A couple weeks later, the doctors are finally permitting him to go on the transplant list, but the doctors have to decide what to do yet. If those who read my previous message on Richard Pinches, please pray for him. Thank you and have a nice blessed Easter Sunday!

    Last month, Jan Van Guilder was taken to the hospital after she slipped on ice and injured her back. She is out of the hospital, but she cannot go outside or even go to CHURCH for another month. I ask you to please pray for her. Thank you and have a nice day!

    Jan Van Guilder, last month, broke her spine by slipping on the ice and was hospitalized, will have surgery next Monday and will not go to church until the ice melts completely.

    I have an update on Jan Van Guilder; she will have surgery on her spine on Monday, I hope you would pray for her. Thank you.

    I have two prayer requests; Jan Van Guilder fractured her spine in her house garage and not the ice. I ask you to pray for Richard Pinches’ family as he finally died on Thursday night. Please pray to have God give his family comfort.

    Jan Van Guilder actually slipped in her house garage instead of the ice and FRACTURED her spine but she will not have surgery and Richard Pinches finally past away Thursday night and I ask you to pray for his family.

    We are going through a custody battle for the children. I am fighting many lies. My “ex’ is not Christian and after coming from their mothers’ they pick up her profanities. They will then not be going to church anymore if she should acquire custody. My son Blake is asthmatic and daughter Maci has respiratory issues and she even smokes in the car with them, Please pray for our situation. She is also into witchcraft. The fervent prayer of a righteous person availeth much. God Bless you for your prayers.

    Jan Van Guilder actually fractured her spine and slipped in the GARAGE, not the ice, while going outside to poor salt on the ice on her driveway. Instead of a surgery, she did undergo spine procedure on Monday. I can’t guarantee that she’s returning to church on Sunday and I ask you to pray for her.

    April 22nd was Jan Van Guilder’s procedure on her fractured spine and was rushed to the hospital again after falling out of her bed April 26 or 27.

    Two months ago, Jan Van Guilder actually fractured her spine in her house garage while trying to pour salt on the ice and had a procedure on her spine last month. She was recently taken to the nursing home in Gillette, Wisconsin but came home on May 4th that afternoon. She is still pretty weak but she is getting better though.

    Jan Van Guilder is getting better as she is at home. She is starting to get stronger again and hopefully she might return to Church on May 26th.

    We need to pray for America because sixty percent of Americans are nonreligious; that is sad and we seriously need to wake up.

    I have started school after labour day and I am now a junior in high school; I have a hard time accepting changes and I also struggle on showing patience with others as Proverbs states that soft answers calms the wrath but harsh answers stirs the wrath; I ask for prayers since that I am desiring to find God’s wisdom and that I may suceed in high school.

    I had started my senior year in high school on September 2 and this is my final year in school. Because it is still very early in the school year it will even be a while before I even graduate. I also need to continue to develop my own personal relationship with God, continue to stay positive, and I do accept Christ as Lord and Savior.
