From Our Missionaries

S. David Smith, Brazil asks prayer for Tiago and Angela (of two separate families/homes) who were recently visited and upon hearing the gospel were convicted of their need for salvation but did not take that step of faith. We can continue to pray for Geri as she is slowly regaining strength and on her way to a full recovery.

Only by God’s grace,

Cathy C. Cochran

Chelsey Casteel

Please say a special prayer for Chelsey Casteel.

Monday night while she was at softball practice she was pitching and her shoulder was hurting her just a little bit. The team started to do exercises and she pushed on that arm and done something to it. We ended up in the ER Monday night until after mid-night. The doctor in the ER said that Chelsey’s Labrum (spelling) was inflamed and she needed to keep her arm in a sling (but not all the time) and not do anything for a week.

Well- she is still in pain her shoulder is very swollen so Mark has taken her to the doctor and they are now sending them to an orthopedic as Dr. McGee is very concerned about Chelsey’s shoulder and she might have to have an MRI.

Please pray that everything will be ok and that it is just badly inflamed. This is what we had to go through with Tyler (our son) and he had surgery last year. Chelsey is very upset because like her brother she loves to play softball and does not want to let her team down.

God Bless

John Farley

John, is to go for an Echo Cardiogram this morning. After an EKG yesterday the doctor asked him if he’d had a heartache in the past (which he hasn’t that we know of) and that his heart is a bit enlarged. They are doing the Echo today to see if there is damage and what the next course of action will be.

Please pray that they don’t find anything serious and that he can be healthy again. It has been a very long time since he’s felt well.

Miss you,

Prayer Request

My neighbor, Kelly, who has been visiting Grace with me, asked for prayer for a family friend of her mom. His name is Rodney Schneider. He is in the hospital in Missouri suffering from cancer and is not expected to live. He also has AIDS. I asked her if he was saved and she said she did not know. I ask that you pray for his salvation and send him a card. I did place a trac in the card I am sending. His lifestyle has caused him to have AIDS. Pray he will be saved! As always mark your card "Grace Baptist".

Rodney Schneider

c/o Freeman Hospital

Room 171 Bed 2
