Prayer Request… An Update

I appreciate everyone who has been praying for my mom. She’s actually gotten stronger… although not really better. The medical folks can’t do much… the cancer is there and she can’t tolerate the few things they know to try…

On Sunday, July 6th, I offered to lead a communion & anointing/healing service at the house when Mom was doing about her worst. I told her she could invite anyone she wanted. When the time came, there were more than 25 of us gathered around her and my step-dad Norm! We celebrated communion and then we anointed Mom (and then, Norm, as well) and laid hands on her and we prayed.

Mom has gotten stronger and stronger. Not better, but stronger. She landed back in the hospital at one point, but is back home now. In fact, her oncologist has decided that Congress ought to bring all our troops back home and just send my mom over… cause she keeps rallying and gets stronger! Nothing really seems to stop her!

We recognize that the day will have to come soon where either Jesus intervenes in some miraculous way to remove the lung cancer and its associated brain tumors, or else the cancer will finally stop Mom… or at least her body. Meanwhile, we all are enjoying the knowledge (and the experience) of seeing Mom ENJOY most of her day… almost every day… pretty much free of pain. Family from afar has been able to come. Friends and neighbors are stopping by. This part is good!

Thank you… and please continue to pray…
