Prayer Request

Please keep Greg Detweiler, Toni Cox’s brother in your prayers.  On Wednesday, Greg was found unconscious on the sidewalk while out riding his bike and a Good Samaritan found him and called 911.  They couldn’t get a heartbeat and they used the paddles to try and revive him, then rushed him to the hospital.  He is in a medically induced coma in ICU.  They are going to try and remove him from the coma possibly today to check his status.  Please keep Greg, his wife, Toni and their family in your prayers as they go through this difficult situation.  Thank you.

Update on Prayer Request

 Message from Connie regarding Sarah’s surgery……..Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers this morning.  Thank you.

Hi everyone.  Lots has happened in 24 hours.  Mostly good.  Please feel free to share the update with the wonderful folks that have been kindly praying for Sarah and her unborn daughter, Quinn.  Tomorrow at 10:30 they will be removing the hemangioblastoma at the base of Sarah's brain.  While this is still brain surgery, the Neurosurgeon is pretty upbeat about her recovery.  The neonatologists are a bit more worried about Quinn.  They think that she will be fine but for a 23.5 week fetus, it would be a difficult time for the baby if she delivered this early.  We are praying that she doesn’t go into labor tomorrow.  Thanks again. I will update you tomorrow.

Received a prayer request from Shelley Brewster.  Please keep her uncle, Jeff Bachmanin your prayers.  He is currently in Blount County Hospital in TN with a severe lung infection.  They are praying that this will be a road to recovery for him in many ways.  Also, please keep Kellie Bachman in your prayers as she has been sick for about a month.  Shelley indicated they are both very kind people, salt of the earth.  Prayers for healing and comfort for them both.  Thank you.

Prayer Request

Please keep Connie Engel and her family in your prayers.  Connie’s daughter, Sarah, is pregnant and wasn’t feeling well and went to the doctor to check on her symptoms.  They discovered a lesion on her brain and are working through this to determine a course of action.  Please keep Sarah, her husband and their family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time and hopefully have answers very soon.

In addition, Connie’s sister has thyroid cancer and is scheduled for surgery next week at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.  Pray for a successful surgery, removal of all cancer, comfort and healing.  Also, pray for the MD Anderson medical team that is highly skilled with this type procedure as they care for her.  Thank you.

Prayer Request

Please keep my friend and coworker, Marilee Walter, in your prayers.  Marilee’s mother Ellen passed away suddenly early Sunday morning at Northside Hospital after being diagnosed with acute leukemia last week.  She was told by the doctors there wasn’t anything more they could do due to the state of the cancer, as well as Ellen’s age and condition.  Pray for acceptance, peace and comfort for Marilee and her family as they grieve the sudden loss of their loved one.  Thank you.

Prayer Request

Please pray for my brother and his family, Hollydale. His father in law suffered a stroke several years ago. My brother became one of his main encouragers and spent a lot of time with him during his recovery. He has had more difficulty recently and has been in the hospital on dialysis for several months.  He has decided to refuse his dialysis treatments going forward.

Please pray for Will Sr (his father in law), his wife (Christy), his son (Wes Jr), his daughter (Maegan) and my brother.  Christy has a brother, Will J., and we keep him and his family in prayer as well.  We pray for the peace of Christ in each heart, understanding and for comfort.  May all be able to see the situation with the eternal in mind.

Thank you so much!

Hi friends!

We have a very exciting opportunity! Since the Hope House opened almost three years ago, we have been using my vehicle for all of our outings with our three girls. We now have seven girls and can no longer fit everyone into my car! So we are very much in need of a vehicle to be able to transport the girls (and hopefully more girls in the near future!). :)

We have found the vehicle we need, but we need to raise about $32,000 to make the purchase. A very kind and generous anonymous donor has offered to match all donations for a vehicle for the Hope House up to $16,000!  This matching offer is open only through the end of this month.  Would you please pray with us that we can raise $16,000 before the end of February? :)

If you would like to help us by making a donation, and/or if you would like to let others know about how to give, my teammate Crystal has a project account set up to receive donations specifically for the vehicle. Online donations can be made by using this link:  Click the green “DONATE” button under “Partner With Us”, and type “Harden - Hope House Vehicle” in the comments field. Donations may also be made by check at: FIRE International, Attn: Harden - Hope House Vehicle, PO Box 5306, Concord, NC 28027. Please also be sure to write “Harden - Hope House Vehicle” on the memo line of your check.  (And all donations are tax deductible).  Also, could you let me know if you make a donation so that we can keep track of how we’re doing?

Thanks so much, and thanks for your prayers!!

Many blessings!
