New and old news. Prayer needed.

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Tonight I just received some bad news. A friend called to let me know that David Peel had passed away.
When I came to Roma Texas to prepare to work as a missionary in Mexico I
went to work with the Peels. They had 9 children. David was the oldest boy but was still a young lad. I have not worked with them for a long time but have never forgotten them. He passed away in Dallas but I know nothing else as he just passed away.
Please pray for the family.
My house is more or less in order now, have a new carpet, new water heater, the air conditioner was fixed and my car is back home. So many things happened in such a short time. My oldest brother passed away the 28th of November also.
Now I want to do my income tax and the 8th of March plan to have total knee replacement on my left knee.
I will be in rehab two or three weeks or until I feel comfortable coming home.
God bless all of you and thank you for your prayers.

    Irene - Sorry to hear about the passing of your friend; also, I missed that your brother had passed away in November. You've had so much going on in your life recently, but I love hearing about your faith and dependence on the Lord through it all!

    Irene, I'm so sorry about your losses. I know in time God will heal your heart. It's good tho that your house is in order and you have arrangements for a knee surgery. I will keep you in prayer for everything to work out for your best. :)

    I will keep the Peel family in my prayers. Sorry for your loss of a dear loved one. As he was a young man, it was probably unexpected, so is especially hard.
Irene, you have had a lot of challenges these past few months. But I know through it all you always keep your eyes on God, who has you in the palm of His hand.
You'll be in my prayers during this time of preparation for your surgery, too.
Take care! emoticon
