Got this update from Judy Rodgers Concerning her husband, Bill. Dr Nayini (the heart doctor) just came in & said they wouldn’t be doing the heart cath. When that happens blood thinners have to be given & he can’t take those since it more than likely will cause a brain bleed because of the brain cancer & the bleed could not be stopped. Since he is feeling good now he can eat & get some Tylenol for his headache. A sonogram will be done to see how the valves are working & then adjust his meds accordingly. Dr Nayini will be talking with Dr Nirmal (the cancer doctor)this morning to decide if he will be able to do the infusion treatments. Please continue to pray.

The Bible says God works EVERYTHING for His good and we claim that! Griffin just shared this on the phone: “Mom, I’m so thankful for the excruciating pain during the night because it forced me to go to the ER where the blood clot was discovered. And I had a doctor that was supposed to get off his shift but stayed with me instead. The doctor told me he was praying for me! Then the tech that did my ultrasound told me she was praying for me, too!” How thankful we are for the pain and for Believers in the healthcare profession! We’ve not spent time with Griffin for two weeks today and can’t see him now because of quarantine. We love you, church family, and thank you for your prayers! –Gordon & Brenda Bevis

Good Morning friends
We wanted to update you on us. 8 weeks ago I had a knee replacement, father’s day I stepped in a hole and broke my patella (knee cap). After surgery to repair patella, the 2 pieces did not stay together. But both pieces are still attached to tendons and ligaments. Praise God. I am in a straight brace for several more months. One day I might like my crutches.
Now Mike, 29 years ago he had testicular cancer and a massive blood clot. In the last 6 months his leg has bothered him. 6 weeks ago he found several blood clots, 3-4 weeks ago he ended up in hospital via ambulance. This past Tuesday he had procedures done to both legs as both are clotted. The left leg is 100% ecluded. (Blocked) the specialist worked over 3 1/2 hours without any luck to break through or stint them. He told us he has never seen such a complex case. He believes these to have been there for MANY years. With this news we gave our Lord all the praises for allowing Mike to wake up each morning. We are waiting on an MRI to be done, the 27th we go back to dr. At this time he will let us know if things have changed or are the same. He has an associate somewhere in Texas on the border of TX and LA.
We continue to ask God for healing and comfort. As you know I am not able to work, and Mike’s disability only pays him under $300.00 a week. We know our Lord will continue to carry us through this.
Bless each of you. ~Nancy Stallcup

Doctor’s theorize that she is on the tail end of the disease. Thanks, Greg Stewart
Our daughter-in-law, KaCee, has had her first round of chemotherapy. Although extremely tired, she did not get deathly ill as Michelle did when she went through chemo. KaCee was diagnosed with the most aggressive breast cancer known. She will be in chemo for five moths, followed by a double mastectomy and then radiation. We attribute KaCee not getting so sick from the chemo to the faithful prayer of righteous men and women. Thank you for praying. Please remember her throughout the rest of the year. Michelle indicated to me that John Travolta’s wife, who died this week, had been diagnosed with the same type of breast cancer as KaCee. We’re not Scientologists though. We call on the holy powerful name of Jesus, the name above all names! Thanks, Greg Stewart

PRAISE ! I want to say thank you church family for praying for me! Your prayers are working, so please keep praying. A little over two weeks ago I had several tests, (including Covid19, which was negative) and was told I had subtle infiltrates in my lungs. In layman terms, I had an infection that had settled in my lungs, not pneumonia, but similar. The doctor started me on meds and in 4-5 days I started feeling better. I had X rays Wednesday, and my lungs were clear. This has been going on since about September, but I feel better every day. I’m on the mend, THANK YOU JESUS, and thanks again for praying! We love you all! ~Buddy and Gracie Lautaret
Misty, our granddaughter, did not have the liver biopsy this morning. She was there and ready to have it done when the radiologist came in and told them that he did not think it was necessary.

Thank you for praying. ~Buddy and Gracie

We are grateful they are strong believers and had a very supportive church family. Thank you so much for covering our Misty in prayer. ~Buddy and Gracie
I’m having a chemical stress test today in preparation for a spinal fusion in August. Please pray. ~Carolyn Barnette
Update in Bro. Steve Meadows…
Thanks for praying. Steve Meadows Surgery Update 6/24/20: Surgery is over! Steve came through well and doctor said it will be a couple of days before Steve wakes up and we can say the surgery was a success. Doctor did find a small white pocket that looks suspicious. Sent it off to microbiology lab and pathology. It could be an infection, cancer, or nothing. Dr does not feel it’s cancer but wants to be on the cautious side. For now Steve is resting comfortably. He did not require any pressors in surgery, and doctor was amazed by that. Thank you all for your faithful and continued prayers.
We’ve been praying for Pastor Steve Meadows, dear friend of ours from Crockett. They are about to do brain surgery on him in Lufkin at 11 AM. Please pray. Here’s what his wife Terri posted…Steve Meadows Morning Update 6/24/20 Day 130: Steve is still not opening his eyes although he will squeeze hand on command and in response to questions. His medical team all agree it’s time for the Burr hole trephination to withdraw the remaining blood on his brain. We have ruled out everything else that could be the cause of his unconsciousness. Surgery is at 11. We have been praying about this since Monday. In the scan it appears to be absorbing on its own but at a very slow rate. We need him conscious to get better. I asked Steve to squeeze my hand if he understood everything the neurosurgeon said and he squeezed my hand. I told him to squeeze my hand if he is okay with going forward with the surgery and he squeezed my hand. I told him I want him around for a lot longer and I will do anything to get him well and he squeezed my hand super tight. Prayers appreciated and will update when I have news.
Pray for Seth, important unspoken prayer request.
Please be in prayer for my sister Trelvis Dunford. ~John Zenter

Got a praise we want to share with y’all. I, (Buddy), had labs and oncology yesterday, and for the first time since 2016 my hemoglobin,(red blood cells) level was in the normal range.
