|Prayer from Diane Jastremzki for her niece Alli||Linda Bland||6||08-25-2015|
|Dear Friends ~ We were blessed to be able to spend this afternoon with Bill & Gloria, Alli's parents. In the past week, Alli's older sister, Stephanie and her husband, Josh, have moved to VA Beach from Pittsburgh, PA. Bill & Glor came to visit us for a few hours on their way back home to Ashland, KY. Please continue to pray, not only for Allison, but for the whole family. They are suffering so much pain and even though they are Christians, they have so many questions. Gloria is hurting so badly and she admitted she asks God, 'Why my Allison, Lord?' The helplessness I felt listening to her pour her heart out, was almost paralyzing. I offered all the comfort and encouragement I could trying to not offer empty words or false hope. It was so very hard. >
Allison's cancer is beyond the scope of radiation or chemo; all she can do is take pain medicine. She needs a miracle!!
Tomorrow, Monday, she and her husband, Patrick, are traveling up to Columbus, OH from Ashland, KY to "apply" for the chance at being a candidate for a new drug. She will know in time, after that, if she qualifies to be part of this test group. She is willing to try whatever may be possible to prolong her young life.
So, friends, I am asking you to continue praying for that miracle for Alli and for the whole family. To God be the glory!!
I have never experienced a time in my life when prayers are needed for so many circumstances at once. And for situations that seems overwhelming. Do you feel that way?
I am keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of my/our faith!
Thank you for your obedience to pray ~ Love, Diane

|TSCC, please pray for Lisa's brother in law Martin. He was taken to the hospital last night in Indiana with rapid heart rate and chest pains. He has been admitted and is going to be in there at least another night. Also please lift Lisa's sister, Kara, up in prayer as she is not in the best of health and they have a special needs child and she will need extra support during this time. Thank you and God Bless!|
|My car and Joy||Annette McLeod||3||07-12-2015|
|My car is going into the shop on Monday to be put on a large computer to see why it is running rough. There is no engine light on or anything that will pull up a code except for this machine(hopefully). Pray I can get it fixed so I can sell it soon and actually have a car to drive. And pray for my niece Joy. Her MRI came back and she has a 4mm ganglion cyst, fraying of one of the ligaments(suspicious of a tare)-both which deal with a ligament left of center in the wrist;and inflammation causing excess fluid in one of the bones in the center of wrist. Thank You all!!!|
|from Joy: Prayers would be appreciated! Going to have an MRI done on my wrist, kinda nervous but hoping it will reveal a cause and then a solution to the awful pain in my wrist.|
|Please pray for Norma she has a 1:30 court date today. Her husband of 32 years passed away 2 years ago and his kids are fighting her tooth and nail. If it was up to them she would get nothing. The marriage was a wonderful one and her husband hadn't had a will drawn up yet. And he hadn't gotten around putting the house in both their names either. My friend is her daughter in law and said she never knew the couple to have ever had a fight. He had a business too. She is supposed to get 1/3 of the house and hopefully of the business too since Norma never worked. Thanks|
|update and praise report||Heather Hinson||4||06-10-2015|
|My father had a PET scan about three weeks ago, which means radioactive drug were given to him prior to a cat scan. This was because spots were discovered on his lungs, and the doctors weren't sure if they were an malignancy or not. If they were, they would have absorbed the radioactive material and been yellow on the scan, but they were not. It appears they are a couple of inflammed spots, possibly mucous pockets. No treatment needed, and they will just watch him. Many thanks to all who have been praying for our family!|
|Pray for a new job||Richard Johnson||5||06-09-2015|

|update and prayer request for my dad||Heather Hinson||2||05-22-2015|
|Further testing has revealed spots on my father's lungs but still uncertain whether or not they may be malignant. He went for a radioactive test yesterday and won't get the results until June 10. Please pray this will show no malignancies and for peace while we are waiting for the results.|

|I received a call from my old supervisor's wife that he has cancer throughout his body and that the doctors are saying he has two months or so to live. His name is Dean Hefner and of course, we know that God is the great physician and miracles do happen. |
Also, I got a call from my cousin and a family friend has had a severe stroke and is on life support in Roanoke Memorial. She asked me to put this on our prayer chain -- His name is Steve.
|My friend Mary lost her husband this morning and doesn\'t know if she will have to move or not. She has been my best friend for over 30 years and it will be hard not to be able to go to Michigan and support her due to VT graduation I am not allowed to ask for any time off this week.|
|for my dad||Heather Hinson||1||05-08-2015|
|On Wednesday, my dad had a cat scan of his kidney because of a cyst. That turned out to be no big deal but the cat scan picked up some spots in his lower chest so now he has to go back for another cat scan on May 15th. Please pray for a total healing and that the spots will not be there when they do the next cat scan. My dad's name is Rodney Bonck, and he is 91. Many thanks.|
