fourth of july.png

During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 on July 4th came when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence.

Charla was born on the Fourth of July in Detroit, Michigan.
Eastwood Park celebrated with a fireworks show which we watched from the roof of our home. I didn’t know that they were celebrating the Fourth of July until about age seven. My father told me they were celebrating my birthday!

Happy Fourth of July to you and yours.

AMELIA

Update on Amelia, Dana Pereau and Antoinette’s grandchild
Late last year we learned that she was losing what little sight she has in her right eye due to a large cataract and deprivation Amblyopia. The lens must be replaced, but she also needs an iris to help filter light and improve vision. A unique surgery can remove and replace the useless lens at the same time as placing an iris where there never was one before; a rare procedure U.S. insurance companies have no billing code for yet.
Irises for this type of surgery are made in Germany,

Dr. Snyder of the Eye Institute of Cincinnati is the only surgeon in the U.S. who has ever performed this procedure and was responsible for its FDA approval. There was an opening in his schedule. Tom, Melissa and Amelia flew to Ohio in February, only to learn the bad news. Although Dr Snyder believed Amelia was a candidate and it could be successful, her insurance company in Washington said it absolutely could not be done; there was no billing code for it and specialists in WA denied it was possible. Funds would need to be sent to Germany immediately if they had any hope of Dr Snyder doing the dual procedure in the U.S. BUT GOD.

Tom and Melissa arranged for the wire transfer to Germany,
and they flew with Amelia for her surgery on June 27th.
Pray for a successful and speedy recovery.

LUTHERAN CHURCH OF THE CROSS

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

Many across the nation participated in the National Day of Prayer. The theme was Love One Another. This is a moment in American history when the church must rise as one to cry to God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If love is to begin to take place across America, it must begin with us:
Love One Another! Every day should be a National Day of Prayer.

It took a medical team 6 minutes to resuscitate him. Samuel’s prognosis was not good. They arranged for a team of specialists to come to Children’s Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario; It looked like Samuel might not survive.

GRACIELA CORDOBA

A prayer request from Graciela while she was on a Baja outreach in Sinaloa, Mexico.

The theme we spoke on with the women was inner healing and the value of a woman. Two women were healed from wounds of their past through forgiveness. The surprising thing is what human beings are capable of doing when they are far from God. The stories that I heard there I have only seen on television. The need for God is very great. We need to call out to God for the salvation of these people. They are living an empty life with much sadness and darkness. What an opportunity to present to the children a different life in Christ Jesus!

Abel, Salvador, Raul and Mario were sharing every night the word of love and salvation that God has for men. I had the opportunity to pray for a field worker in that place, a man drowning in alcohol. We pray that God makes a total change. There the people live in laminate houses that are extremely hot and of course the mosquitos were ready to eat our blood and leave us their poison. Our niece Eveling was not doing well because of these bites. She had a high fever and her feet were swollen. Mario took her to a doctor because of the seriousness of her physical state. We were happy to take the Good News to this place.”

bible institute_juventino.png

JUVENTINO

Carlos Quijada, Bible Institute Director, writes about one of his students, Juventino from Santiago Jocotepec Choapan.

 “I am writing about him because of his desire to know God better. He took a four day bus ride without a bathroom, without air conditioning, without a seat; just a blanket to lay down in the aisle so that he could rest a little. He traveled for more than 3,000 kilometers in these conditions. What made Juventino decide to come to the Bible Institute? It was the fact that when he came to know Jesus as his Savior, his desire was to know Him better.”

oaxaa_laura rodriguez.png

LAURA RODRIGUEZ

Laura, administrator from Oaxaca writes, “My doctor thinks
I need a tonsillectomy, and referred me to a surgeon. The surgeon
seemed to think a tonsillectomy is the best option too, however
he did his due diligence in making sure I know how difficult and painful
this will be. But when I think of the alternative, this constant discomfort
and complications, I am hoping a few weeks of pain is temporary
and worth it. So, my appointment is scheduled for July 11th
.”

WATER IN NAIROBI

nairobi.png

CHILDREN IN NAIROBI

Trinity Fellowship is a subsidiary of FFHM. Missionaries, Godfrey and Elisabeth Dawkins, report a miraculous event. They were drilling for a well in Nairobi, Kenya. No one knew how deep they would have to drill before striking water, but Joanna had an amazing encounter with a heavenly being right when the rig arrived, “Here I am at a loss for words. How does one describe the indescribable?” 

A tall angel in appearance like a standing column of moving water pouring down onto the drilling site, suddenly came sharply into focus before her. Sure enough, almost within minutes the well proved to be a gusher! Awesome! For technical reasons the engineers had to keep the water running for twenty-four hours. So, all through the night the local community swarmed onto the site with containers of all descriptions slung over the backs of donkeys, excitedly hauling the water away.”

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving; we can’t commercialize gratitude. My second most favorite holiday is Valentines Day.

Weekly Prayer & Praise February 8, 2019

MARILYN AND DAVE BOTZENHARDT
 

Praise report, answered prayer!

Pastor Mike Bayer reports, “David’s doctor on Tuesday said he is now cancer free. He had cancer in his lungs. Dave has been taking a cancer-fighting drug for a few months now that has a lot of promise for certain cancer patients. We thank God for His inspiration to those doing medical research and the advances we’ve seen. Hundreds maybe thousands have been praying for Dave. Several besides Dave have had or have a cancer diagnosis. I saw in the Spirit people standing for prayer and the congregation coming around them to pray and felt God would heal some. But here’s the thing about prayer for healing: it’s not one person or one time (usually). It’s a combination or culmination of prayer over time by many people. There is often a moment when it all drops out of heaven and healing is manifested. Every person who has prayed for Dave is in on this blessing Everyone had a part in this. Was it the meds or the prayer? Medication can help, but ONLY GOD can heal.

RIKER AFTER SURGERY

An update on precious Riker: Riker has had many surgeries on his face to remove birth marks, which covered his face. He has very limited vision in one eye and during the last surgery pressures were improved. But he was so upset over the surgeons probing they were unable to complete their work, so he will go back in a couple of weeks and go under general anesthesia for more work.

CAROLYN

Carolyn is a child sponsor and longtime outreach missionary in Mexico. New ownership of the senior community she lives in, has resulted in a huge increase of space rent. This has potentially created a hardship for owners and may force some to have to sell their mobile homes. Please pray for reconsideration of the park owners or that God would bring a buyer for Carolyn’s home.
