UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
Here’s an update concerning Richard Knight…

Ron,
Richard is at the Sunterra Springs rehab center behind the AMC theater. They are working with him on mobility and he will probably be there for several weeks.
Pray for him to feel calmness during this time as he is not adjusting well and is very confused. Too many things and changes have happened to him in the last week.
Of course because of the virus, we can’t go in. I see him through his window and we talk on the phone.
Friday is the memorial for our son Tim. Pray that it goes well. We are working on getting Richard out for the service.
Nydia

UPDATES

Dear Prayer Partners,

Update from Dave Veanes June 17th …

 Pray for Micah’s appetite! He’s got to gain some weight. He lost another pound and is now down to 126.
   Also pray for him as he endures a daily “bath” where his nurses remove the dead skin. It is a painful, yet necessary process.
    And pray for him to have strength and peace from the Lord. He has had a great attitude but lately has been down a little mentally. Pray for the Lord to lift his spirits.
   The skin grafting is going well but that is also painful. His calves are healing and the doctors believe this was successful!
Pray for Dave, Peggy, and Dorothy that they would remain strong physically, spiritually and emotionally during their time in Galveston.

Update from Dave Veanes June 22nd

   Here’s a Monday afternoon update from Galveston: Micah Veanes has more skin grafting tomorrow on his neck, shoulder and arm. They’ve started a little PT as he has been sitting up and they have moved a special bed into his unit to help him have the sensation of standing.
   Please pray that Micah continues to have a good appetite (he did eat better today). Also pray that he will have good balance on his feet when he begins physical therapy.

   Thanks again to all the Prayer Partners who continue to lift this family up each day!

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,
  Please pray for our friends and fellow Prayer Partners, Richard & Nydia Knight. Richard has had some health problems and was admitted to the hospital yesterday with heart related issues. Because of the Covid19 restrictions Nydia is not able to visit him.
  In the midst of all this, Nydia received a phone call informing her that their youngest son, Tim had died. Tim has had some health problems but this was very unexpected.
  Thank you for praying for Richard, Nydia, and Tim’s wife and children.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
It has been a glorious day! I had the privilege of preaching at FBC, Grain Valley, MO this morning. In the first service there were two professions of faith in Jesus and three in the second service! Their service can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/grainvalleyfirst/videos/1191053727896476/
Father’s Day was tremendous. Tracy, Daniel, and Graham brought lunch to our house and we had a great meal and visit. I am blessed to have the greatest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson in the whole wide world!
Yes, it was a great day all around and I hope your day was blessed as well.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

Update on Micah Veanes…

  Micah had another exploratory surgery this morning and both calves are healing perfectly! The muscle looks good, and the suture lines look good! They also took out staples from the skin grafting that was done on his neck and chest Wednesday and the skin lines look really good!
  So now they are moving into phase two, which is the rest of the skin grafting. Then when that phase is done, phase three is physical therapy.
  So things are progressing well and Micah continues to have a great attitude and they are very thankful that this has been a week without any setbacks!
Thanks to everyone for the fervent prayer on Micah’s behalf! The family appreciates it so much. Please keep praying!

  If you don’t have their address and would like to send an encouraging card or note to Micah Veanes and his family, you may send them to Hillcrest Baptist Church, 399 Hoover, Lebanon, MO 65536. They will see that the cards and notes are forwarded to them.

PRAYER REQUEST


Dear Prayer Partners,
  Last December I asked you to pray for a friend of mine, Keri Peterson.  If you remember, her dad, Kent Cochran died quite unexpectedly.  For those of you who have been through this experience you understand that now she is dealing with settling her dad’s estate.
  She has a parcel of land in Republic, MO that she really needs to sell quickly. Please pray that God will help her with this, as well as all the other details that need attention.
  God bless

PRAYER REQUEST & UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

Here’s a prayer request from our friend Faneta Craig…

Dear Ron:

  Please pray for the family of Samuel Bernett, from Oklahoma, who passed away.   He and his wife, Donna, have been our very good friends since college. He was a retired Minister from Garnett Road Baptist Church in Tulsa. Before that they ministered in several churches and then were Missionaries in Southeast Asia. His funeral  was yesterday and the graveside service is today, Friday.

  Thank you and God Bless!

  Faneta

Here’s an update on Micah Veanes…

  Micah had his 12th surgery yesterday and they closed both of his calves. They did not remove any muscle nor do any skin grafting on his legs. Please pray that the sutures hold on his right calf so he does not need any further surgery. The left calf should be fine.
  They also did some skin grafting on his neck and shoulders. The Dr’s think his face is healing well and he will have minimal scarring there!
  Please keep praying for his appetite. He needs to eat lots of protein, and his appetite is not always the greatest. His attitude is really good and the family sure appreciates all your prayers and support!

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
Here’s an update from the Veanes’ in Galveston…
Micah has been improving each day. He was awake most of the day today and they have decreased his pain meds.
His kidneys have been functioning just fine since they took him off dialysis last Tuesday. And he has been eating better! Thank you for praying!
The big priority prayer request now is for a final surgery scheduled for Wednesday, where they will close his calves. After this surgery they can begin the skin grafting. Please pray for the surgical team to have discernment on the best way to close the slits.
The muscles look clean and healthy, but the bones are still exposed. He has three layers of sutures and they have not been able to close the gap. The sutures wouldn’t hold and they do not want him to lose any more muscle in his calves, yet it is going to be challenging to close the skin around his calves. Pray that they will be able to do that successfully.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,
This request comes from my dear friend Bill Dudley…
Ron,
Prayer is needed for my longtime preacher friend, Tom Cox, in Bartlesville, OK. He has a mass in his colon. It may or may not be cancer. Time is being set for surgery.
Tom and I met as freshmen in September 1954 at Decatur Baptist College, it is now Dallas Baptist University. We have remained close friends a little more than 65 years. His wife, Vera, is also very ill and for the most part house bound.
Thanks,
Bill Dudley

Dear Prayer Partners,
Jay Scribner is out of surgery. The doctor said everything went very well and there was no damage to the heart. He had a triple by-pass and is in recovery. He is expected to be in the hospital for 3 days and then begin the journey of recovery.
God bless and thank you for your prayers.
