Praise report from Bonnie Westfall. Byron has a blockage in his bladder and was dropped by his doc just as they were moving to TX week before last. Bonnie and her sister were working in her sister's yard in TX when a neighbor walked by. He asked how they were doing. For some reason Bonnie spilled the beans about Byron needing a doc. The neighbor says, "I am an oncologist and my best friend is a pain management doc." (Byron has a long history of cancer surgeries/treatments and the need for pain management.) This doc dropped out of the sky. We are praising God. Byron has an appt with him on Tuesday 4/14 to find out why he has this bladder blockage. Please pray against cancer. Bonnie says they are well and that they miss our church family. They really appreciate our prayers!!

My uncle who has been waiting for a heart donor is at TGH for his new heart. The donor goes into the OR at 11am and my uncle goes in at noon. He is a man of extraordinary faith and has not wavered during this waiting process. I'm amazed at the goodness of God, that in the middle of this storm we are in, He shines down His light of blessing on His people and treasures them that He's got them in HIs hand and will not let them go. Prayers please that my uncle receives the new heart well, that the doctors and staff are covered and directed by the Spirit of God during the surgery, and for the family who lost a loved one and are grieving as we rejoice. That the peace and love of God is felt in their lives during this time and always.

Just got off the phone with Bonnie Westfall. She and Byron have packed their car and are leaving for TX in just a few minutes. Please pray for traveling mercies for them as they make this long trek to their new home. Pray for Byron's health, that God would give them a Spirit of Courage and take away any fear they may have, that He would provide a place for them to stay at night (three day trip) in the Name of Jesus. Kim and Dave Norvell are having to work during this time. Pray that God will protect them from the corona virus in the work place. Kim is trying to make hospital masks for medical personnel. Finding it hard to acquire materials, even elastic to go around the ears. God be with us all.
