Dear brothers in Christ,
I asked Todd to send out a prayer request to all of you so you could pray for my wife Beth and for our family. It looks very likely now that Beth has a form of bone cancer. She has a tumor in her sternum and while we are at the very beginning of this, it's likely that surgery and other treatments will follow. We won't have many more details for about 2 weeks, but I still wanted you guys to begin praying for us. The next step is to get a needle biopsy and a pet scan, which are going to be scheduled the week of July 31st. Shortly after that time we should know more about what we are looking at. I am putting Beth on our congregation's prayer chain this evening and I will be making an announcement this Sunday at church after each service.
Thank you in advance for your prayers. We have lots of fears but we also are trusting in our Lord Jesus, who holds the keys of death and Hades.
Christ is risen!
