12/6 MILD: I need your continued prayers for my healing.  I am recovering from 2 back surgeries because of infection in the incision.  Sunday afternoon, I was outside and got bit by some kind of insect and have developed an infection in my hand.  When I went to the doctor, he said he is very concerned because there is infection spreading through my body.  I have 2 knee implants and just had the back surgery.  They put me on a very powerful antibiotic which is making me sick.  Please pray that the antibiotic will work and that infection does not settle in any of my implants as that could be very bad.  Thanks, Carolyn

12/1 WIESEN: Hey church family it was so good to be home and see you all last week! I wanted to ask for prayers for students I reach out to at Penn state Altoona! We have been reaching many students who are not followers of Christ! I would like to ask for God to continue softening their hearts to hear and accept the truth of the Gospel! Please pray that as we continue to reach students like Mikel, Dominic, Maliek, Micheal, Ryan, Brandon, Jimmy, Logan, JD, Pam, Erin, Hannah, Jeremias, Myra, Butch, Timmy, Lille, Olivia, Alyssa, Aly, Clay, Gabe, Matt and many of other students that we have interacted with this semester who are looking into Christianity but who are not followers. Praise God for the students who surrendered their lives to God already this semester Brady, Nick, and Joel! Please pray for them as they dive deeper into their relationship with the Lord. Also I ask for prayers for me as I work on support raising over the next month and a half that God will provide the funds I need to continue doing ministry. Please pray for next Monday as all the fellows (interns) with the cco which is what I am go On a silence and solidarity retreat to process this past semester and discearn if this is where God is calling us or not. Also pray that with that that we would get to our full monthly support so that if we choose we want to stay with the cco that the cco will hire us to stay on they have informed us that many of us won’t be asked to stay on that includes me if we don’t get our monthly support up. So please pray for that! Thank you so much for your prayers. Ray

11/28 JOHNS: Jeff has been in the hospital since Saturday due to significant breathing problems. He was not getting enough oxygen due to a low blood count. They are working to find a way to increase his blood & platelet counts, which continue to stay low due to a condition called DIC. DIC causes small blood clots to form, which somehow uses up the platelets. Cancer is one of the causes of DIC. Please continue to pray for strength for him as he faces this next challenge. Thank you.

11/28 SPEARS: Follow up about Dakota Miller, 12 months old in regards to a nail gun.

It turned out that this was a “hoax”!! Our son said he would never confer about a prayer request in this manner again unless he knew it was factual. Knew you would want to know. Evelyn & Jim
