Prayers Would be Good

Posted by Vogeler on January 19, 2007

Here is an email I received from one of our missionaries, Rob Green:

“Good Morning!

I wanted to get this email out so you can be praying for Carrie. She has exploratory surgery scheduled for Tuesday, January the 23rd. She’s grown very weak, unable to eat or drink for longer periods of time, and the pain has grown unbearable, in her words, “even for this strong, hard-headed girl.” The surgeon will be looking for little ways to help the pain and prolong her life. The good news is that she has such hope in God … That her life is a blessing in Him, not in the flesh and the pain that you see her going through.

For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Romans 8:24&25

Some have told us they will be fasting and praying for two days prior the surgery — what better way to lift a sister in love to our Father. Thank you for your prayers for our family! You have affected our lives with your friendship and love … Not to mention the many who are being touched through ministry.

In Him,
Rob & Family”
