PRAYER REQUEST & UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

  Here’s a prayer request from our friend in Texas…

Ron,

   3 year old Ella is at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston and very sick.  Texas Children’s Hospital is one of the best in the world and they can’t figure out what’s wrong with her!  Please lift her up to the Great Physician! Thanks –Candy Humber

Update on Mervin Lockyer…

Mervin is doing well and the surgery corrected the problem and things are beginning to work as they should.  However, because of the Parkinson ’s disease he is very slow in recovering from the anesthesia.  Please pray he begins to respond soon.  Shirlee asked that we pray that he would simply open his eyes.

UPDATE & PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,
I preached at New Liberty Baptist in Oak Grove, MO this morning. Good time of worship and one person prayed to receive Jesus!


Just talked with Shirlee Lockyer and she said Mervin is doing very well. They only removed the sigmoid and were able to leave the colon in tack. He will still have a lengthy recovery.


I will be preaching Eloise Shirk’s memorial service on Oct 22. They are very appreciative for your prayers and concern but have requested family only please.


Next Sunday I’ll be back at New Liberty Baptist and then November 1st I’ll be in revival at Horseshoe Bend Baptist at Lake Ozark, MO with Pastor Mike Ryan.

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
Just a little after 12 Mervin Lockyer was taken to emergency surgery to have his colon removed. He will have a colostomy and hopefully at a later date it can be reversed.
Please pray for a speedy recovery.

PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,

  Please pray for Mervin & Shirlee Lockyer.  On Wednesday Mervin was admitted to  Center Point Hospital with a twisted intestine/bowel blockage.  They have tried several things to try and correct the problem but without success.  Looks like he may need to have a section of his colon removed. A major complication is that Mervin has Parkinson’s Disease and becomes easily agitated.

  God bless & thanks for your prayers!

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,

  I received the following from our friend Faneta Craig. She and her family are dealing with some very difficult things. Please pray for them.

Dear Ron:

  Please continue to pray for our family as we will be having a private family gathering on Saturday for Evan’s memorial. Pray for wisdom, comfort, and healing in all of our lives and especially for Debbie and Everett as they are facing many difficult issues.

 Thank you and God Bless,

Faneta

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
Just got this update from Keri Peterson…
Ron,
We are under contract! Inspection and city approval for his business are still ahead. Looking to close January 15th unless his house sells sooner. It’s not a contingency but would move up if his place sells sooner. Thanks for the prayers and please keep praying!

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
Here’s the latest on Micah…
Micah Veanes and his family are coming home from Galveston later this week! They met with the Prosthetic Doctor Monday and he did not think they could do surgery on his arm at this time.
Micah can do his remaining therapy either here in Lebanon or in Springfield. He will have to travel back to Galveston in about five weeks and perhaps in January for follow up.
Please pray for him and for the family as they return home. Pray for him to continue to gain strength and coordination in his walking and for a way for them to do the surgery on his right arm for the prosthesis down the line.
Thank you all for faithfully praying!

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
  Last June I requested prayer for some friends, Keri & Ivan Peterson.  She has a parcel of land in Republic, MO that she really needs to sell quickly in order to settle her dad’s estate.  After 5 long months, yesterday evening some prospective buyers made an offer.  Please pray they can reach an agreement.

  God bless & have a great day!

UPDATE

Dear Prayer Partners,
Here’s an update from Joyce Newby concerning Eric…

Ron,
Eric is home thanks to all of our Prayer Partners prayers. His fever is slight and nothing to be concerned about, but he is in unbearable pain. He gets his stitches out tomorrow. Please pray that God will take this burden of pain from him.
Thanks to each one of you for your ongoing prayers.
Joyce

UPDATE & PRAYER REQUEST

Dear Prayer Partners,
Update on Pastor John Knapp in St. Louis…
Bro Ron,
It’s been a challenge but I believe I’m getting over the hump! I can swallow a lot better now. My Dr. was happy with my progress. I hope that our Lord will bring complete healing to me, but if I have to stay in the walker, I’m good with that to. His plan is always the best.
Today we are celebrating our 50th wedding Anniversary all glory goes to Him for a great time with Pat over that time!!!


Please pray for the family of our dear friend, Elouise Shirk. This morning she met her Savior face to face and had a wonderful reunion with her husband Russ. Her memorial service will be later this month. Please pray for her children as they finalize arrangements.
