    Oh man... tragedy upon tragedy this year!

    Some of you already know my first request. My mother in law was diagnosed with metastatic cancer recently. She's undergone surgery to remove 7 tumors so far, and shes going to go under radiation treatment in the coming weeks. They still have not looked at her chest yet. All they have removed is what they saw in her throat- and that was already at stage 3. This is tragedy number one... please pray for her. Nailya C. (pronounced nigh-eel-ya) is her name.


    Last night I got a phone call at 10:30. My grandparents on my mom's side took on a bad storm. Their barn, their house, their garage and motor home were completely swallowed by fire after lightening struck. That property is where my grandpa grew up. That was their first house after marriage. It is gone. Totally gone. That barn was built by grandpa's grandpa! The only thing they insured was the house and the motor home. Total loss. They still cant find the dogs or the horses. Im going there to help them this weekend, to bring food and some clothes and a few things from my camping outfit that may help them.
    Grandpa and Grandma are 80 and 82 respectively. Everything from photos to their 60th wedding anniversary gifts and everything in between- gone. Gone.
    Please say a prayer for Vince and Leona... theyre very dear to my heart.

    Im grateful to you all for your prayers- these things do help.

    As for proof of the power of prayer, I look no further than Mother in law's surgery. 5 churches with over 3000 members from michigan, canada, and New York prayed specifically for her.
    The cancer had taken over 3 sides of her espohogus in one area, her thyrod, lymph nodes, and parathyroid gland. The doctors had to cut the nerve to her vocal cords, remove a 2 cm section, and then sew the tissue around it back together. The surgeon said it would be a year or two before she could do more than whisper. He said he's done 3000 of these surgeries. When mom woke up, she clearly said, "Where is my daughter?" The surgeon was there with us to see it. We were all dumbfounded. He said in 27 years of doing these surgeries, this is the first outright miracle he has ever seen. He sewed the nerve together less than a half hour before!!! An experienced surgeon said it... not just me.

    So please... a few words for Nailya, Vince and Leona.


    Much thanks brothers and sisters.
    Sal
