~WFW~ Strength~

China Beach, Vancouver Island BC

As it stands now, Jan/Gerald will fly to Houston for testing and to see her oncologist Tuesday, 6/17 and Wednesday, 6/18. Our family is trusting that the tumors are not active. In saying that, we need your prayers. But most especially, Jan needs your prayers. She's handling this well, but this also was not what she wanted to hear last week, so it has been difficult for her. She's been fighting this cancer for 7 months. The physical, as well as emotional part of this journey has got to be extremely heavy. Please lift her up in your prayers. Prayer for PEACE, NO TUMOR GROWTH, POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND OVERALL FEELING WELL.

Her labs results were pretty low last week, so they've taken her off of everything except the steroids. She is feeling better in this regard, but she has no protection at this time in regards to the tumor. Please ask God to place a hedge of protection around her that will not allow Satan to touch Jan in any way.

Please pray for our family that we will remain steadfast in our Faith and that we will not give in to Fear. Nothing can rob you of joy, confidence, optimism and opportunities more quickly than a spirit of fear.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to you today on behalf of Jan and her precious family who love her dearly. I pray for PEACE that passes all understanding, I pray for comfort, and for supernatural wisdom on the doctor's part. Refresh and restore Jan's body. Surround her with your love. Uphold her and encourage her now like never before. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Cheryl, I'll continue to keep you all in prayer, especially Jan...♥
