Christa S. - Dad's Health

I wasn't sure whether to share, but figured we could use all the prayers and support we can gather... My father took a fall from about 6 feet yesterday and landed on his head and has fractured his spine. He is in the ICU in St.John's Newfoundland, Canada. They are doing surgery this morning in a couple hours. The difficulty right now is he has no feeling from his nipples down. Our prayer is that after the surgery his spine will not be as compressed and it will help with the paralysis.๐Ÿ™Thank you so much for your prayers and support.❤️

"I’m not okay. Prayers and good vibes needed. Please."

Rahman R. - And Family

Rahmat Rostamipour (pictured) knew his family's decision to leave Islam and follow Jesus was a risk in Iran. But for them, it was a risk worth taking.

On the day after Easter, that risk became reality. The morning of April 
18 at 8 am, a dozen officers in plain clothes showed up at their home in Anzali and took the family's Bibles, phones, ID cards, books and even their children's school tablets.

And then they arrested Rahmat and drove him away in a convoy of four cars,

Rahmat's wife was also targeted for arrest but when the raid caused a panic attack in their14-year-old daughter, his wife was left back.

Pray with us for Rahmat and this traumatized family—Iran shows no sign of stopping the arrests and imprisonments of Christians.

Rachel J. - Health/Surgery

Hi Friends.  Mike Johnson and I are asking for you to cover us in prayer this week.  We waited until his pre-op appointment today, due to covid already delaying it, but Mike will be having hernia surgery early Wednesday morning.  This will be a challenging surgery as it is a hernia that they have already tried to repair twice.  The doctor is trying to do it laparoscopically, but there is a high possibility that she may have to open him up completely.  She is one of the top doctors for hernia repairs in Oregon.  We also know that both Mike and I are in God’s hands, but it will be even more comforting to know that you are praying in support.  I am not the one having surgery, but would you please pray for me as my wife brain has to sit there alone due to covid.  I am thankful that I at least get to go back with him during pre-op. Please pray for his recovery as well.  Thank you in advance for the prayers and I will try to keep people updated as I am able.

Donnie R. - Health

Hello Facebook family! As some of you may recall, back in January I posted about having surgery to deal with a stage 3 cancer diagnosis I received back in 2021.  And while it has been a very rough road these past few months (2 rounds of chemo regimens, radiation, kidney stones, liver trouble, a 2.5 foot long blood clot in my right leg, and persistent numbness in my feet and hands) I  am blessed to say that I was released from the hospital after my final surgery on August 5th and the doctors believe the cancer is gone!!

God has blessed me so much and I am so very thankful for all the support and prayers you have shown my family and me during this time. Your encouragement has meant the world to us, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 

To list the blessings and miracles along this journey through the valley would take forever. But I can summarize by saying that We matter to God. We matter to each other. And You matter to me. Thank you for being my friend. 

Love you all!!
