Prayer Request

Well, we're requesting prayer for my great-grandma and great uncle Glen in Indiana again! Some weeks ago, I asked for prayer for them. Mammy (my great-grandma) had fallen and was terribly week like she had been last winter. She was doing much better (and had been off the walker she had had to use since the fall), but then received some terrible news.

As some of you know, one of my great-grandmother's other sons, Leeland, (who was living in Florida) lost his job some months ago and went to live with them. Lately, he hadn't been feeling well (for example, he was nauseous practically all the time). He had really bad stomach pains at the beginning of the week and Glen took him to the ER. They've kept him there since then and have run various tests, some of which show that he very likely has liver, stomach, and colon cancer (and perhaps even others). The doctor is not very optimistic. As you can imagine, my great-grandma is blaming herself and is not doing well at all through all this.

Glen's pastor is meeting with Leeland today in about an hour. He is not saved. In fact, he claimed to be an atheist for some time, and only in the past couple years has come to believe that there is a God. He is the kind of person who feels invincible, however, and so therefore does not believe he has any need for God. Please pray that Leeland would actually listen to what the pastor has to say, and that the Lord would save him. His salvation has been a huge prayer request for some time now, and so we're very thankful that he will be meeting with the pastor today. Though we are all upset about his medical problems, if this is what the Lord uses to bring him to Himself, it will all be worth it.

Thank you all so much for your prayers!
