Lehmann, Marilyn Ethan 09/03

(Note: This is the original prayer request made at the end of May. "Please pray Baby Ethan born prematurely (25 wks) 1lb 14.5 oz (now down to 1.5 lb) May 26 in Halifax NS. Heart stopped for 2 min after birth. Brain ultrasound shows 1 blood bleed. The doctor is optimistic but Ethan has a long road ahead. He's a grandson to friends of ours back on PEI."   Since that time there have been a number of crisis moments. The following is the latest update.)

Update: 09/03:  "He’s a very sick little boy. Please pray for him and his family. Thanks to all who are praying! Blessings, Marilyn"

Update: 09/09:  Prayer definitely works. Thanks to all who have prayed him through this yet again. Blessings Marilyn

10/22 Update: He is now 11 pounds but is still tube fed. He has to have his eyes checked every week as they are not great. They are keeping an eye on a blood clot that he has on his throat and is on medication for. He has a reflux really bad so feeding is hard on him he is on medication for it but we are hoping he will outgrow it. All in all he’s doing pretty good and it’s such a fighter. Thank you so much for all your prayers. I am holding him right now and using my speaker so hopefully this makes sense when you read it. He will be 5 months Oct 25.

Please keep praying. He is home but still has a way to go before they can rest easier about his health. Thanks so much for praying for him.

McLellan, Heidi Diane Lamb



Update for Dianne Lamb, Penticton church: She is starting chemo next week. Nausea is expected but please pray that she doesn’t have an adverse reaction to her medications.

10/21 Update for Dianne Lamb:

Dianne is to have her second set of chemo treatments October 22 and 23. She saw her oncologist today. He told her dairy and cancer are connected, especially the type she has. This is an unbelievable blessing for her and not at all common to have a doctor say much of anything about nutrition. She is so thankful to know we are praying for her. Please also continue praying for her to be drawn closer to Jesus. Many Thanks! Heidi.

Unruh, Janie Brenda Trana 09/27

Brenda Trana is a Barriere church member who was on a quad riding around her yard and took quite a tumble. She’s been in ICU for 3 days now with quite a bad head injury. She cracked her skull, cheek, and chin in several places. She’s been intubated since her arrival, but took a turn for the worse last night and now has fluid in her lungs. Please pray for Brenda’s recovery and well-being, her husband, Jim, and the medical staff attending her." 

Here is the October 14 Update on Brenda Trana:

Prayers are being answered. Brenda is out of intensive care and is sitting up for short periods. Most of her tubes are now out and she is on an IV. She can whisper a few words. Her left side is still very weak, but this is a great improvement. She can now answer simple questions like who she is and where she lives. In addition to the already listed broken bones, she also broke ribs and her clavicle.  

Please, pray for her brain to completely heal that she not have ongoing brain damage, and all her broken bones to heal properly. 

Thank you so much for holding her up in prayer.

10/25 Update: "Thank you and everyone who is praying for Brenda Trana. Prayers continue to be answered, but she still needs prayers for her brain and physical body to continue to heal 100%. Both her brain and body continues to greatly improve. She is walking with a walker but thinks she won’t need it much longer. With each visit to the hospital, church members can tell her brain injury continues to improve too, so praise God. She had her Bible and was thrilled to have it along with bible Promises. God’s Word heals! So we just need to keep praying for her brain and physical condition to get back to 100% normal. 

Thanks, Prayer Warriors, on behalf of Jim and Brenda." 

Sabot, Luc JoAnne Boonstra 10/16

Please pray for JoAnne Boonstra who is having surgery tomorrow morning (Oct 17) at 9 am to remove a melanoma from her right shoulder blade. This will be her 3rd surgery to remove it. Thank you for remembering JoAnne in your prayers.

10/25 Update: She was visited by several church members this week and seems to be doing quite well. She is still waiting for lab reports.

McClair, Taylor Self 11/01 "I got accepted into college in Abbotsford. Please pray that I can find a place to live and a job to work while going to school. Thank you for your prayers. I'm from William's Lake and this is a exciting but difficult transition for me." 
No Name  Kurt P. 11/01

Please pray for my friend Kurt P. He’s challenged with many daily tasks, working long stressful hours, tough life events, loss during recent California wildfires, health issues and fear of unknown. Years ago, You blessed him, his life turned around and today he needs another intervention. Bring him peace, guidance, and light his path to show him what to accomplish and to what to say no. Help him ease his daily schedule so he can have time for selfcare, family and close friends. Guide him to better opportunities while giving him strength through You. Amen

Monsanto, Risie Monsanto nieces 11/13

Please pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the Revelations of Prophecy public crusade that my nieces are doing in Ecoville, Carigara in Philippines. This is my home town and there are many interested individuals who are already experiencing persecution from their own families. It is a strong Catholic community.
