We Need Your Prayers
“I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;” (1 Timothy 2:8, NKJV)
Please continue to pray for those who have been touched by cancer and other life-threatening diseases and their caregivers and loved ones.
It is extremely difficult when a spouse is taken home to be with the Lord, especially if this happens in the life of a pastor. I have had conversations lately with several pastors whose wives are now in heaven. Please keep them in your prayers.
I have changed my Oncologist to the same group that my Primary Care Physician, pain doctor, and my new Neurosurgeon, which is St. Jude. I am very happy with the care I am receiving so far. My Oncologist there didn’t like my liver levels and wanted to give me a CT Scan to rule out metastatic RCC in my liver, even though he felt as if it was my chemo drug causing the problem. I had a CT Scan on September 9, 2022, and the liver had no cancer in it. More labs showed that I was in liver failure. I was immediately taken off my chemo for the foreseeable future. The oncologist is ordering CT Scans every three months to closely monitor my progress. For the first time in almost two years, I was also able to take the brace off! I met with the new neurosurgeon who told me that bone had actually grown back where it had been removed at my L2, L3! He was concerned about the possible metastatic cancer and ordered a P.E.T. scan, which came back negative. Praise God! I am convinced that God has a plan and knows the day he will call me home to see him face-to-face. Until that day, I will continue to be faithful to the ministry to which I have been called. For me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain!
In the future
“For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:19–21, NKJV)

CURRICULUM FOR CHURCH TERMINAL ILLNESS MINISTRY
We are working on a curriculum package for local churches to minister to those who are suffering from a terminal illness. This is a big undertaking, but necessary. Please keep this in your prayers. We’ll keep you updated on our progress. If you want to help with this project, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EVENTS / CONFERENCES / CONFERENCE CENTER AND OFFICE
“… Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10, NKJV)
Our ministry is small now, but we have mustard-seed faith to see God do amazing things! Eventually, we would like to have a conference center/office space to have conferences for those suffering from terminal illness and their caregivers. We would like for the conferences to be fun and informative as well as pertinent and applicable. Fun and terminal illness don’t always go together, but we know that the joy of the Lord is our strength. He is the source of so much joy even for those of us who are facing so much difficulty. For me, nothing has helped better than being able to smile in my pain and even laugh.
If you know of a place in Southern California where we can grow, that might be donated to us, please contact us.
We are grateful to our board members and volunteers. Please pray that the Lord would provide in order for us to hire some support staff as the ministry grows. Pray that God would provide the right fit for the ministry and that they will be a blessing to all.
