Please pray for my sweet sister and brother-in-law in Texas, Amy & Andy, who are expecting their first child in January. Amy is 20 weeks along and the baby has a greatly enlarged bladder and no amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. On Monday, August 18th, Amy will have a sonogram to check the baby's enlarged bladder (we'd love for the blockage to be miraculously gone). Then the doctor will perform the in-utero procedure to test the baby's bladder function and drain the bladder. It will be quite invasive so please pray it goes smoothly is effective, and that my sister and the baby recover from it with no problems. It may have to be done a few times and based on the outcome the doctor will determine if the baby is a candidate for further medical assistance (i.e. placing a stint).

  • Update | Posted on October 16, 2014

    Johns Hopkins has been very kind and agreed to review Amy's medical records asap and let her know if they can help, without her having to fly to Baltimore. However, her existing dr's office in TX seems to be difficult about releasing her records to Johns Hopkins saying it will take them 2 weeks to do so. Johns Hopkins would need the records today or tomorrow as they would start treatments next week if Amy & baby are candidates based on their medical records. Please pray that the records release goes smoothly and Johns Hopkins would receive what they need to make the decision & Lord-willing they are able to help Baby Nickel. Thanks again for your continued prayers & support. Sarah

    Amy spoke with her doctor last Fri 10/10 and her doctor is unwilling to pursue any experimental treatments. Also, it now seems the baby's liver has spots on it which could suggest a disease which affects the eyesight among other things. If I understand correctly, this liver disease is treatable but the doctor said she will not intervene to treat it. Acting on her own my sister Amy has been in contact with the doctor at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD who successfully completed the experimental treatment on a baby by injecting saline in place of the missing amniotic fluid which allowed the baby to survive. (That baby is 14 months old now!) This doctor said that my sister is a few weeks further along in her pregnancy than their normal treatment window. However, they have offered for her to come to Baltimore (from Texas) for an appointment to confirm if this is the case. Since they are not confident they can help, Amy will be calling them today to ask if they can conduct a medical record review in lieu of her flying out to see if there's a possibility they can do something. Please be in prayer about this possibility. Please pray for continued wisdom and strength for everyone involved as it has been such an emotional rollercoaster. Thank you so much for your continued prayers! Sarah

    Amy's next doctor's appointment is in 2 weeks and we are all just taking it day by day. It looks like such a bleak situation from a medical standpoint but every day we continue to pray for a miracle (Lord-willing) and ask the Lord for understanding if His will differs. Amy and Andy are continuing to trust the Lord regardless of the outcome and are such a great witness to our unbelieving family. Thanks for all the continued prayers!

    Amy had a sonogram today and it was determined that although the bladder is no longer greatly enlarged (baby's body probably absorbed the excess fluid), the bladder outlet blockage has caused the kidneys to fail or be in the process of failing. Therefore, the kidneys won't produce any more urine and there is still no amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. Since this urine (which becomes part of the amniotic fluid) is crucial to the development of the baby's organs (e.g. lungs, bladder, kidneys and other organs), the absence of it will most likely cause the baby to pass away on its own. However, since the heart and brain are strong and the baby is continuing to grow sufficiently, the baby may come to term and pass away upon birth due to its underdeveloped lungs. My sister and her husband are heartbroken but God can do anything and we are still praying for a miracle (i.e. that the kidneys produce urine which correctly cycles through the baby) but that miracle must occur soon in order for the lungs to develop and sustain the baby. Thanks, in advance, for your continued prayers. Sarah

    Just received word from Amy that Johns Hopkins finally received her medical records at 9am this morning. JH has told her that the doctor who has performed this groundbreaking experimental treatment will be reviewing Amy's file today to determine if she and baby are candidates. Please pray that Lord-willing she is as this may be the miracle to give the baby a chance at survival. Thanks for all the prayers!! Sarah

My co-worker Marty is undergoing cancer treatment. He is doing miraculously well, but has the stress of needing to move this month before his treatment finishes. Please pray that the Lord would see him through this difficult time, that he would realize God is doing the healing, and become a follower of Jesus.

Received notice that I will be laid off and have 2 months left with the company. I pray that I will be able to continue to work hard and leave gracefully. Please pray that I continue to show God's love at work despite the horrible circumstances. Please pray that I trust God for my future and to provide for my family. Please pray that I lean on Him more than I have and find peace in His plan for my life.

We have a pastor who has problems interpreting Scripture. Please pray that his eyes get opened. That he gets a Spirit of interpretation. Scripture has one clear interpretation given by God. Anything else is twisting it. But it is applicable towards many parts of life.

Don & Judi Schleiden *UPDATED

Would appreciate your prayers for Judi's Mom - Eleanor. Mom is 93 years old and has lived on her own since the Lord called Dad home in 2005. She has been in the same home for 61 years and we, her 4 children feel that it is time to move Mom closer to one of us. The Lord has provided a beautiful condo (the owners are strong believers in Christ) for us to move Mom to. It is hard for anyone but especially one who has been in the same place for 61 years to feel confident in taking on such a big venture. Mom will be 5 minutes from both my brothers which will be good for her and only 2 hours away from us. Pray for peace up to and during the move and that she will settle in nicely to her new surroundings. That the Lord will clear her mind and that she will know beyond a doubt that this was the right thing to do.

  • Update | Posted on October 16, 2014

    Yesterday we spent the day unpacking my Mom's belongings into her new beautiful surroundings. Mom will be arriving sometime this afternoon with my sister. Praying that this will be a wonderful time for her, that the sadness of leaving her home of 61 years will be replaced with the joy of being closer to family. Please continue to pray that the Lord brings refreshment to her confused mind from all the pressure of this move and that the Lord would continue to keep her strong and healthy.

    Tomorrow is packing day for my Mom's home of 61 years. Wednesday we will move her into her new home in Maryland. Pray that as my Mom leaves her home tonight that there would be a wonderful feeling of peace flood her and that she will be reminded that her memories are always with her. That when she arrives at her new home on Thursday she will be happy, loving her new surroundings and looking forward to being close to family. Pray for the four siblings as we minister to Mom and get her settled in.

    Thank you for your prayers on behalf of my precious Mom. On Thursday of this past week Mom (Eleanor) arrived safely with my sister to her new home. They finished the decorating and unpacking throughout the weekend and Mom seems to be adjusting. Mom is still experiencing some forgetfulness and lack of clarity of mind which we are all praying God will clear. I know at the age of 93 there will be some of this! Mom has some "fear" for lack of a better word about going out on her own, I'm okay with her staying put as I don't think she should be driving. Pray that the Lord fills her with contentment and love for her new surroundings.

To say that we serve an amazing God has become such a cliche. This last week I was reminded that the same God who created the universe also wants to have a personal loving relationship with me. Imagine, the God who was, and is, and always will be wants to show me His love and wants to grow me into the person He needs me to be for His glory. Therefore, to get to live that we serve an amazing God has been my privelege over the last few months. To have my son come back home is something out of the Bible stories of God. Now to have my brother-in-law reach out to me just makes me love my Saviour more and more. I never thought this would happen.......in God's Perfect Timing. Prayer request: That our family will start the healing process. That I will keep my focus on God, AT ALLLLLLL TIMES, during this process. That, like Moses, I will not look to the left or right but up, and like Peter, I not take my eyes off Jesus and focus on the turbulent waters. That is all curcumstances, God will be glorified. To have our family be healed will be such an awesome story of God's redemption to be shared. If that is not His plan at this time it will also be a story of how He is growing us to His maturity, to be more and more like His Son. Thank you and Bless you for your carrying me to the feet of Jesus at this time. I look forward to updating you with His blessings whatever His will be. Hugs, Rho

    I have a meeting with Chad (my husband's brother) and his partner on Wednesday at 6pm. Please lift up the meeting time that it will glorify God. That communication will be open so both sides will understand and comprehend what is being said. That the enemy will be kept out of our time together so that God's will may be done. That, no matter what happens, I will be at peace and the enemy not bring up the past to twist what our Lord is doing in this time. Thank you in advance for carrying the three of us to the feet of Jesus as we have this time together. No matter the outcome, I will update you after the meeting or early Thursday Morninng.

I've been struggling greatly in my biology class. I need to pass this class so I can graduate. I'm stressing over it and trying to give it my all. I come to you and ask that you pray for my passing of this class. I ask that you pray that God bestows wisdoms and knowledge upon me while in this class. I pray that God guides me. I pray that God clears my mind of worry and helps me to focus and study better so that I can at least pass with a B in the class and get into my clinicals. I beg that God helps me. It's very stressful and I need to pass this class! Please pray for me in Jesus name amen.
