Our prayer focus today is Benjamin P. Pray that Ben might both learn and be the fullest benefit in serving others this March in Port Arthur, Texas, with the Conservative Anabaptist Service Program. Pray also that he might keep his Chinese fresh while away from formal instruction during that time and be best prepared for his third trip to China in May.
Peter T. has been at Mass General with Terry. Terry fell outside their house Wednesday morning as they were getting on the shuttle to go to the airport for their ski trip. She will be there a couple of days at least and will have a partial hip replacement. Peter writes “The time of surgery is unknown; the orthopedist said that there was a rash of broken bones so he was not sure when the operating room would open up. They have you up and walking with a couple days and you go home in 2-3 days. It will take a month or two to be back to normal.” Pray for a good outcome for the hip replacement surgery.
Love S. writes I am having cataract surgery this Wednesday, 2/21, at 11:00 a.m. eastern standard time on my left eye. Two weeks later on 3/7 I am having cataract surgery on my right eye. I would appreciate prayers for these surgeries, the resulting vision corrections, and that all goes well. I am anxious to get it all behind me. We still feel a part of the Carlisle Congregational Church since we were there for over 45 years and have many great memories there. Thanks very much.

George D. wife Danielle posted that the MRI after his 3rd brain surgery shows that the surgery was successful at removing the tumor and repairing the bleeding, but recovery on this one is a greater challenge with a long road ahead. “He is eager to get his strength back…His faith and fight are fierce” “Please pray for continued pain management and healing of brain swelling and incision. We will still take that healing miracle if HE has One to give…We are so blessed by you all.” Thank you. Nan Walsh
