This is an update on Wanda Knapp given by her daughter Wendy. I can't thank you all enough for your prayers and your messages of concern and support regarding my mom. Things are a lot more hopeful today than they were on Friday, thank God. She is still in ICU and still on life support but the docs are hopeful that she'll be able to breathe on her own, and that they'll be able to find the right meds to control the seizures. She didn't open her eyes but did respond to commands before I had to head back. I've been saying though that we're (you all included) getting a little whiplash from watching her approach death's door and then bounce back time and time again. But we're not complaining by any means!
Request prayer for the Myers family at this time. Rev. Gerald (Jerry) Matthew Myers (86), the brother of our former Conference President, Rev. Donald Myers, passed away last night.
Let us continue to lift the Myers family to the throne of Grace today and in the days ahead as they come to the height of their grief. May each of us get under and help lift their load at this time. May the whole family sense the nearness of The Holy Spirit, The God of all comfort. May they experience around them them afresh and anew "...The Everlasting Arms... " and underneath are "...His Wings..."

Please pray for Wanda Knapp. She is in the hospital again and in ICU. I'm asking the Pilgrim family to please lift her to the throne of grace at this time. She really needs your prayers and the help of the Lord.
Bro. Montgomery texted that they had just received word that Sr. Montgomery's mother has passed away. Please pray for Sr. Montgomery and her family at this very difficult time.
Bro. Mills contacted me today. He asks that we join them in praying and fasting over the weekend concerning a big decision to be made for the advancement of their ministry. They want God's direction and wisdom in this matter. Please pray.
|4/5||D. Waterman||Another update on my Mom... She’s still in pain/not feeling well. She also has pancreatitis. Pops messaged me this morning (Friday) and said that her pancreatic number count is looking good. If it continues to improve like it has, they will likely remove her gall bladder on Sunday and send her home on Monday. Again, we all appreciate your prayers.|
My mom has been in discomfort for a couple of days. She went to the ER in Cooperstown last night and they have admitted her for a few days. They gave her a CAT last night.
The fellows arrived safely in Haiti and have gotten settled in. Yesterday they met with the leadership team and attended the evening service of the camp meeting. Today they are planning on doing some traveling in the area and then service tonight. Tomorrow is the pastor's meeting and service. Sat. is a multiple wedding ceremony, baptismal service, and then the evening service when Bro. Fall is scheduled to preach. Bro. Sickler is scheduled to preach on Sun. morning. Please continue to remember them in prayer.
Please remember Sr. Peabody's father who is very sick at this time.
Bro. Fall and Bro. Sickler are on their way to Haiti right now. They should arrive around 5:00 this afternoon. Please remember them in prayer over the next 7 days. Please pray for their safety, and that the Lord will help them to be a blessing to our fellow Christians in Haiti.
In your church services today I ask that you pray for my wife's father. He has had a lung disease (pulmonary fibrosis) for sometime now. It seems to have progressed to a point where he is in icu at a hospital in Columbus , Ohio. Thank you so much for your prayers!

|2/24||R Sickler||Received word that Sophia Mills has a bacterial infection in her mouth that has created sores. This has made it very difficult for her to eat, drink or take her medicines. She is in the hospital and will be there for a few days. Please pray for a quick healing and also for Steve and Kezia. This is very stressful for them. Hospitals there are not like the ones here in the US. Please hold them all up in prayer.|
