I give praise to God for answer to the prayers many of you have presented on my behalf concerning my recent visit to the hospital for x-ray and ultrasound examinations that were performed to discover if there may be evidence of developing stomach cancer in my body.
I had a telephone conference with our family doctor yesterday who told me that both tests came back negative concerning stomach cancer, or any evidence of cancer in my thorax region.
The only things they discovered during the tests are Incidental findings that were discovered unintentionally and during these examinations. But they are not at all dangerous to my health at this time. The incidental findings are a very small kidney stone that does not need to be treated, and a very small cyst (very common) in the fatty tissue of my liver that also has no need of treatment at his time.
I was told that continued physical fitness training and moderate changes in diet will most likely stop, or even may cure both of these things.
My next examination will be to have a camera scope sent into my gut for an even more thorough discovery. Then, because of the chronic leukemia that I do have, I am to continue to have a blood test once every 3 months.
Thank you all for your prayers that availed much, and thank you for ongoing prayer that these tests will continue to come back negative concerning any forming of cancerous tissue in my body, and that our loving Heavenly Father will permit me to live long and strong so that I may be a blessing to my wife, family and church family.
God bless you all.

Please pray for my niece Skye. She is 6 years old and after months of bloating and stomach issues she was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. She is currently at McMaster where constant tests are being done. She also has issues with her bowels, lymph nodes and other organs. Whether or not it is cancer is not known yet. Please pray for answers and for peace and comfort for my sisters (my younger sister is her mother and my older sister has become her guardian) For courage for Skye and that the Great Physician will heal her. But above all that my family will turn to the Lord and trust in Him during this time as they are not believers.

I am at the hospital this morning being tested by Ultra Sound and X-ray to check for stomach cancer.
Please pray our Lord will give me the grace to have the tests come back negative, and that something curable is present, if anything at all.
I pray that I will remain strong and well as I live with chronic Leukemia, and that I will not be a burden to my wife, family and friends.

My son John who has been battling a serious drug addiction has been clean for several months for the first time in too many years, PTL. John has been living with Janet and I since our remarriage in early November and at times this has been quite straining on the two of us. Please pray for his safety in his new living arrangements (he is renting a room in a good home and rehired by his former employer), but ultimately pray for his salvation. Please pray also that Janet and I that will use our new "empty nest" time to celebrate the work Jesus has done and is doing in our own lives, and in our remarriage, and please pray most of all for the great plans HE still has in store for us, working in and through His wonderful union of marriage to build His kingdom and give Him glory. Thank you.

My family is new to the Niagara region and moved a week before the lockdown. We attended Hope Oakville and were wanting to attend Harvest Niagara when we moved. We don’t know anyone here and like everyone else have felt the loneliness of not gathering together as a church physically. Unfortunately depression is a struggle with some of our family members and we would like prayer for strength to endure and lean on the Lord. We have children with special needs and are having trouble handling our new life here. Although we are not official members of Harvest Niagara we were hoping to attend when the church gathers again and we wanted to reach out to the saints here.
Thank you for reading our prayer request.

We got referred back to MAC because baby is way too small for Erin being 25 weeks. They aren't sure what it is, if her placenta isn't working properly or if the baby has down syndrome or something else wrong. The baby had a small head and tummy and nose is measuring small. We had gone to MAC a few months ago because her blood work had come back abnormal but at that point after more detailed blood work everything came back clear. The more prayer the better...we are OK with all of this we know we are not in control.
