The Struggle Has Ended

Prayer Requests

It's been a difficult week. I am working on a more informative description than what follows, and will post it soon, but in anticipation of worship tomorrow morning I wanted to share some prayer requests.

Please pray:

  • That I will qualify for a clinical trial to receive a new drug in addition to standard treatment, and that I can begin Wednesday.
  • That the required endoscopy and surgery to insert a chemo port would be both scheduled and successfully performed either Monday or Tuesday.
  • That as part of the trial I would receive the new drug plus standard treatment, and not a placebo with standard treatment (50% of the participants are 'controls' and receive a placebo).
  • That the cancer would stop spreading and that I could be healed entirely.
  • That Christine and I would have good health, perseverance and hope, and that we would be filled with love for one another during this stressful time.

I hope to be able to share more details soon.

Thank you for the update. We are praying for you both daily and trust the Lord will strengthen you as you go through this hard providence and that he will continue to make you such a good testimomy to His Glory. We beg Him to heal you completely and that you will be able to live your three score and ten plus to His praise and glory.
In Christ,

Greg and Christine,
I have just returned from a trip to California. I traveled with my friend Janet to SanFrancisco and the Napa Valley wine country. We also spent two days on the beach at Carmel. It reminded me of our wonderful time last summer in Delaware. Christine, you would have loved all the dogs that were playing in the water. We ate some great seafood, I thought of you at each meal. Greg, I even tasted a steamed beer! I love you guys with all my heart and I am fervently praying that the Lord will grant you healing
Your sister in Christ,
