Missy Massey – Prayer – – Bowling Green Elementary is being prayed over (Jericho march) each afternoon this week @ 4:00 PM (Saturday time is whatever time works best). Sunday, March 3rd, is at 3:00 PM for 7 times around the block. Please pray for blessings.

Prayer request for Carolyn Hall – She was recently diagnosed with lung cancer

The Hogue Family – Thankful for all of the prayers for their trip – – it was a very productive trip and they should know more in 3-4 weeks. They give all the glory to God!

Phillip Bumby – Prayer for Meredith Dishman Church – – for her walk with God

D’Lise Wyckoff – Prayer – – she found out this week that her cancer has returned – – prayer for strength and healing – – prayer for her family…to ease their worry. Also, prayer for their finances – – they’re facing enormous up-front costs that they weren’t prepared for that need to be met before all tests and treatment begins. They know that God is good and will provide!

UPDATE: Jim & Jackie Alls – Jim’s son, Jim, came home yesterday – he will have to have a visiting nurse for quite some time as he will have to have the IV going for several weeks. The good news is that the spots on the liver was from the severe infection within his system – so, now no sign of cancer. His heart problem is still not good. They are not sure about this problem – it could be from the infection or something else with the valves. He is also on a blood thinner to try to avoid a stroke or heart attack. He is not to work – just walk around the house for 45 minutes a day to keep up his strength. He is very upbeat and so thankful that his life has been spared. We all thank our Lord and Savior for his abundant love and grace.

PRAYER: Jim Alls (the elder) – He has macular degeneration in his eyes – – the left one is in the early stages. He has had shots in both eyes and has a follow up on March 15th.  He is very upbeat and his outlook is good – just pray that the shots will stop the progression – as there is no cure at this point for complete healing. So far, our prayers are being answered – God is so Good!!!
