Buchanan, Sonja
Melissa Cooke's Mother, Melissa and Siblings
Sonja Buchanan was in contact with Pastor Melissa today and learned that Melissa's Mother has been transferred to the Intensive Care Unit in a Toronto Hospital. Evidently she is not doing well and may not make it through the weekend. Please pray for Melissa, her siblings and especially for their Mother during this dark hour.
Thank you for your caring and praying.
07/12 Update from Melissa: “Her mother is awake, tired but talking and not as disoriented.  She is taking fluids, which is great and the nurse said she was a little better.”
Thank you for continuing to pray on her behalf. Here is some encouragement to pray from Ellen White GC 525: "It is part of God's plan to grant us, in answer to the prayer of faith, that which He would not bestow did we not thus ask."
07/14 Update from Melissa: 
"Jesus said, “I Am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die." (John 11:25–26)

Yesterday morning (Monday), my beautiful mother fell asleep in Jesus. There are a lot of emotions that ebb and recede in me but underneath it all -- I feel a never-ceasing hope. I know that in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, my mother will rise again imperishable. Thank you for all your prayers for my family."
Certainly we will be praying for this family in their time of sorrow. A beautiful tribute to her Mother and to a loving Heavenly Father who loves us very much.
Passing of Bob Frost, Uncle of Danny  07/15
Danny called me this evening re the sudden passing of his uncle Bob Frost. He has requested prayer for his aunt and the rest of the family that will be gathering in Tennessee this weekend. (Near Southern Adventist University)Please pray that God will be close and comfort this family in this unexpected tragedy and loss of a loved family member.
Manuel, Sharon Harry Sauer 07/25
"One of our former members who now lives in Hope,  Ethel Sauer,  requests prayer for her husband Harry.  He is battling cancer and Ethel would like for us to pray for his physical condition but even more for his spiritual health.  Please pray for the Holy Spirit to work on his heart so he’ll surrender to Jesus as his Lord and Saviour."
07/29 Harry has gum cancer and is scheduled for surgery on August 13.
Lehmann, Marilyn
Teri Mindel
"One of the tenets in our condo building asked if our church took prayer requests for non-members and I said 'We surely do!'
Her sister-in-law, Teri Mindel, now in in her early 50s, went to the doctor about a bad pain in her arm and found out after they started x-raying her that she has...
1) cancer in her lung and it is collapsed
2) cancer in her bones
3)cancer in her liver
4)A tumour on her brain but don't know yet if it is malignant
5) and the reason for the pain in her arm is that it's broken between her elbow and wrist.
She's also been told the cancer is terminal! Not a very pleasant outlook when all she went in for was to see why the pain in her arm...
Please pray for God's will to be done and His peace be with her and her family.

Blessings and many thanks for caring enough to do this?"

Cooke, Melissa Hazel Serack 08/03
Here is a request from Pastor Melissa I received about noon today: 
"I went to visit Hazel this morning in the Abbotsford Hospital. She went in because of an obstruction in her bowels and after tests, they found liver cancer. The obstruction in her bowels may be cancerous as well, but both the doctors and Hazel (as well as her family) have opted to not do surgery or chemo-therapy. Could you please ask the prayer warriors to pray for Hazel and her family in this very difficult time. 
Thank you prayer warriors."
