The Prayer Requests for our family have been answered in many ways. Jan's Mom is doing much better and returned home from the Hospital in Girard, yesterday. She is now getting support at home for PT and OT in addition to Home Healthcare. Jan is also feeling much better. Jenifer has an appointment with a hand surgeon scheduled for next Monday and my sister is getting some help in caring for our Mom from a former caregiver who was able to return. Thanks for all the prayers they definitely helped.

I am so grateful to God that I was able to come to worship and Community Group both yesterday at Kingsland for the first time since my two surgeries on my back a couple of months ago. Needed my Kleenex for sure! I recently had a fusion from T-10 all the way to my pelvis. I feel like this was a major step forward! I am so grateful for all the people who have and continue to pray for me and my husband, Joe!

PRAISE REPORT: Thank you for praying for my cousin Amy who is recovering from breast cancer and awaiting her radiation treatments. She went to the doctor today to start her radiation treatments and she had to be re-scanned. They said that the seroma had shrunk so much that the measurements they took a couple of weeks ago were wrong (you all started praying a few days after that :D). They had to go back and develop a new treatment plan to radiate a smaller area so her radiation will begin next Monday. Thank you all! I'll keep you updated.

Many at Kingsland have been praying for Jen and Byron since Jen was diagnosed with brain cancer in January. Jen is so grateful and her walk with Christ has deepened during this time. With her permission I am sharing a recent post of hers, praising God for His work:

Hello everyone,

I frequently praise God and talk to Byron about how blessed I am to have so many faithful prayer warriors!

Through the valleys and mountains since being diagnosed in January, God has sustained us and provided for us. We have seen Him move mountains and we expect to see Him move more.

I can’t express how grateful I am to God for revealing to me more of His character every day! He is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, eternally faithful, and immeasurably good. He gives me undeserved grace and blessings daily and could not love me more.

I am humbled and energized and encouraged by all of you, your prayers, and your sacrificial love! What a demonstration of God’s provision!

I have made miraculous progress and I am grateful for my mobility and that I am regaining independence. Byron is still my medication manager, chauffer, appointment manager, caregiver and my comedian. He makes me laugh every day.

When I am prone to turn my victories into failures because I compare what I used to do with what I do now, I ask God to redirect my thinking toward His character. I ask God to help me depend on Him with a childlike 100% dependency. He is faithful to me from the rising to setting sun and His plan is better than anything I could imagine!

When I go down a path of guilt for the heartache over my diagnosis to others, I remember that God is sustaining my family and friends too!

I love you all!

On behalf of the family of Sharon Rogers, who had previously been placed on the Kingsland Prayer Wall, I would like to praise God for bringing her into His Kingdom on August 7, 2022. The family's prayer had been that Sharon (Granny) would not have to suffer long, and that her family would be able to love on her through her passing. Both of these prayers were answered, and now I ask for prayers for the family as they prepare to say goodbye for now to their precious mother and grandmother.

I am thankful for the thoughts and prayers of my Kingsland prayer warriors. I give all the praise and glory to God.

Thank you,

Hello Prayer Warriors! I just wanted to let you know that our prayers for my sister-in-law Tammie were answered! To recap, she has brain cancer and needs chemotherapy and radiation in order to make a full recovery. The new MRI showed that the cancer had not grown too far into her brain for radiation, so she will be able to take both treatments. Praise the Lord!

Tammie could still use your prayers, though. Even with the chemo and radiation, she still has only a 20% chance of recovery, as well as a 25% chance of stroke during treatment.

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to all the hard-working prayer warriors who prayed for Tammie over the past couple of weeks. I contacted 128 churches across the US for prayer & the response has been truly humbling.

Tammie is a Christian & loves the Lord! She sends her heartfelt thanks to all!

I am working in a Christian ministry that does work globally. I have just shared a significant portion of all my testimony to all the employees about how I started as a low-functioning autistic, and worked extremely hard to overcome it, and by the grace of God and the sacrifice of my parents am now very high-functioning. But there are still a lot of mental problems and emotional wounds. The Lord has shown me my journey upward in this ministry, and I believe, with the reason the Lord has me there, it is worth it. Thank you.

My sister, Linda Brake, had a fall several weeks ago and split her leg open. It was bad enough that the doctor thought she might need a skin graft. Her healing has been slow, but it was not necessary to do a skin graft. I want to thank the prayer warriors that lifted her up before the Lord. Thank you Father for your healing.

My mind was blown this morning; I went in for treatment #36 after a non sleep night (due to both hips hurting where the beam is directed)  and I saw Max. Max finished his prostate treatment 2 weeks ago, we struck up a great friendship talking about our Savior (as it turned out, he is a member of River Bend BC, a Kingsland daughter church) so we have a kindred spirit. But when I saw him this morning, my thought went to failed treatments ( he did 28, I am doing 44) but it turned out that he drove in from Westin Lakes to talk with me. Wow, that blew my mind. We talked until it was time to get into the blocks and then he drove home.  The Lord works in mysterious ways.

My sister, Debbie, is a widow and lives in southern Illinois. Her daughter, Nichelle (47yrs old), who has Down Syndrome, recently underwent her second back surgery trying to regain some mobility which has deteriorated significantly over the past couple of years. There have been major challenges in Nichelle's post op care, from ICU to rehab hospital and now she's at home with my sister. Nichelle is trying to get out of bed in the middle of the night and falling, and it's very hard for my sister to pick her up. They are in a small town with very limited options for help and care. My sister who has been an amazing advocate and loving mom for my niece is now faced with some very tough decisions. Please pray for my niece to be strengthened to walk again, and if not, pray for peace for my sister as she decides how to best care for Nichelle at this stage of her life. Thank you so much!
