Could you please pray for Betty's husband, John who was taken to the hospital yesterday?He was admitted because of pancreatic problems.
The young man in the next bed from him is dying with cancer and he confided in Betty that it has been a real bad year for him.
He lost his wife and child in a car accident, his beloved mother just passed away and he lost his job that he had for 22 years and now this cancer.
His name is Mike S.
I called one of the Christian man that used to work with him and I am hoping that he will be able to speak the Gospel to this young man.
Please pray for John and Mike and that a way will be open to speak the words that are needed to point Mike to the Lord..........Thanking you in advance
I could feel the prayers of God's dear people and I saw the Lord's hand throughout the visit.
John looked quite well and can now at least have fluid food instead of just water.
His roommate who I had mistakenly called Jeff in the prayer request turned out to be "Mike", but that is alright...God knew who you were praying for!
I must tell you what happened,
We had quite a nice chat with the young man and learned that his past year has been really heart breaking.
When his wife and daughter were killed in a head-on crash, he had been following behind them by motorcycle.
His dear mom died Christmas eve and his remaining son will have nothing to do with him.
Bernie and I went to the sixth floor while John's son visited his dad.
We went to see a friend who also has cancer.
She was very glad to see us and suggested we go outside to sit for a while.
She is a Christian also and she has stomach cancer
As we were sitting there, she was telling Bernie and I that she has heard so many sad stories in the hospital.
I told her about Mike's tragic story.
Valarie pretty near jumped off the bench in her excitement.
"Why that is who I was going to tell you about!"
He has been going up to see her on the sixth floor.
John and he are on the fourth floor and he must of met Valarie for the first time in the coffee shop which is on the first floor.
When we got back to John's and Mike's, I was so happy to tell Mike that we had a "mutual" friend and that was Valarie!
I told him then and there that he would be having all kinds of people praying for him!!
I told John a few minutes later when we were by ourselves that this must be the reason that HE had landed in the hospital.
The Lord is using this to Mike's advantage.
It is all the Lord's timing and now Mike who is surely dying will be given the chance to be saved!
How about that, eh?
And John is feeling better since he has been in the hospital.
He just has to have a few tests..
Thanks for your prayers........Love Terry
