From Susan Davis
It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness that I send you this email. My baby sister, Ketiva Lynch, whom many have prayed for over the past few years, lost her battle with Lupus late this afternoon. She was rushed to the hospital with a possible heart attack and did not survive. She was 49 years old and suffered with Lupus for almost 18 years and it just overcame her body and destroyed her organs over time. She was always so positive and loved her Lord and knew in her heart that He was there with her all the time. God definitely held her up many times through her struggles, especially during the times she questioned Him as to why her. Please keep her husband Bill and their daughters Magen, Mallory and McKenzie in your prayers as they grieve this sudden loss of a wife and wonderful mother. Please keep me and my family in your prayers as well as we support them through this difficult time and also grieve the loss of my baby sister and my children's favorite aunt in the world. Thank you.
Please pray for my sister, Ketiva Lynch.I just received an urgent request from her daughter asking for prayers, not sure what her situation is right now. She's been very weak and fighting a major Lupus flare up over the past few weeks. Thank you.
Please continue to keep Gregg Detweiler, Toni Cox’s brother in your prayers. Gregg has been moved back into ICU. Pray for his wife and Toni and their family as well. Thank you.
Some have asked for Judith’s address to send a note or card. Pastor April suggested that you bring them to church with you on Sunday and they can be given to her there. We don’t have her home address at this time. Thank you for your continued prayers for Baby Erick and Judith.
Answered prayers and message from Pastor April…….
Baby Eric is doing so well the nurses told Miss Judith they believe he will be able to come home this weekend! God has done it! The prayers of the faithful are mighty indeed. The family is so grateful for all of your prayers and encouragement! They said Eric will be baptized at Hollydale soon!
As your pastor, my heart is full. What a blessing that God would favor us to allow us to see His miraculous work among us! Thank you for surrounding Miss Judith with love and care, Hollydale! You are agents of His love. <3
Please keep Kylie Parrish’s mom, Farah , in your prayers. She was taken to the emergency room yesterday and later admitted to the hospital because her blood pressure and oxygen levels dropped and the doctor thinks there is a connection to her other symptoms and wanted some time to try and find the underlying cause for her medical problems, instead of just treating the symptoms. Please pray for a diagnosis and treatment plan so she can be feeling well again very soon. Thank you.
Please keep baby Erick and his mother, Judith, in your prayers. Many who were at the Mother’s Day service will remember that Ms. Judith won the gift card for having the youngest child. Baby Erick was born premature and is still at Kennestone Hospital. They estimate he will be in the incubator for two more week. He’s gaining some weight, but needs continual prayers. Ms. Judith needs prayers as well for strength and comfort as she waits for the day baby Erick can be in her arms and at home with his family. Thank you.
Please keep my sister, Kevita Lynch, in your prayers. She was admitted to the hospital yesterday due to fatique, nausea, fever, joint pain and high lactic acid levels and has a possible infection. As many know, she suffers with Lupus, which is a terrible debilitating disease. Please pray for comfort, rest and healing. Thank you.
Please continue to keep Toni Cox’s brother, Gregg Detweiler, in your prayers. He is still in a coma and the next couple of days are critical as they run neurological tests on him for brain functions. Pray for his wife, as well as Toni and their family as they wait and pray for answers. Thank you.
