Update from Kezia...

Thank you for praying! The charge nurse sent for a colleague to try to get a vein for Sophia's new lV site. We were warned that if they didn't succeed this time that tomorrow they would be putting in a central line. The colleague arrived and with minimal prodding she succeeded on the first stick. Thank you Jesus!

This is the latest report from Stephen and Kezia Mills:

PLEASE help us pray for Sophia. Her IV site is needing to be done again. I think this is the 4th time. They are having a very difficult time trying to find a vein. They have tried 6 times today an are now talking about putting the IV in her neck. It is just tearing us up to see her going through so much pain. Kezia said he little arms are very swollen. We know this is not too big of a problem for God. Thank for all of those that have been praying. - Stephen

Let us keep them in our prayers.

Sophia Mills is in the hospital with an infection.  The Dr. feels by tomorrow she should be much better once the IV antibiotic takes effect.  Please hold her up in prayer and also her parents.  This is very difficult for them as well.  God does hear and answer prayer and we are trusting Him.

Please continue to pray for the Majors in Brushton.  Bro. Major says that she is feeling better today than in a long time.  They seem to have adjusted her medicine to help with the A-Fib heart condition.  For the next four months she will have chemotherapy treatments twice a week on Tuesday and Friday.  These treatments will start next Tuesday.   Please continue to hold Sis. Major up in prayer.

Please continue to pray for the Hock family in Northville.  Bro. Hock continues to be in Carlisle, PA visiting with his mother in the Hospital.  A couple days ago Bro. Hock said there miraculously seemed to be a slight improvement in his mom's condition.  He also mentioned that she has a long, long, way to go.  The family continues to trust God for His will in all of this.  Please be faithful in taking the Hock family before the throne. 

Please continue to pray for the Lambeth family with the passing of Rev. Jerry Lambeth in these difficult days of adjustment.  

Please continue to remember the Edna Wood family from our Kingston, Ontario Church 
in the recent passing of Sis. Edna.  May the family experience the sustaining grace of God during these difficult days.

A special prayer request from Twin Rocks and Rev. Asa Sherman:  Debbie Plows passed away on Monday night.  She attended the Twin Rocks Church for several years.  As far as Bro. Sherman knows she was ready to meet the Lord.  Bro. Sherman is to have her funeral on Saturday.  Pray for the Shermans as they minister to the family this weekend.

Thanks for taking these request to our heavenly father.  Every prayer counts!!!

It was just this afternoon that Rev. Jerry Lambeth went home to be with Jesus!  A beloved husband, father, and grandfather.  A genuine Minister of the Gospel, a true Soldier of the Cross, and a dear friend to all.   He was loved by all and will be missed by all.

The words of his last email to me just this morning at 4:50 am were, Thanks! Stay warm! God bless! "  

He is now in a land where he'll never grow old and he'll never have to worry about the cold!  This short email characterized him perfectly!  He always had a grateful heart and always continuing to bless others!  I can't help but think that he wrote the above email with a smile!  God bless the memory of Jerry Lambeth!

Let us hold Sis. Joyce and all the children and grandchildren close to God's throne in the coming days.  To the Lambeth family:  There are difficult days ahead.  May God wrap his loving arms around you and hold you close to his heart.  God wants to show himself strong on your behalf.  May His sustaining grace uphold you and strengthen you during your season of grief.  May each one of you find the words of the psalmist a fresh reality, "God is our refuge and strength , a very present help in trouble. "  On behalf of the Pilgrim Holiness Church of NY, Inc and the Conference family, we pledge to the Lambeth family our unconditional love, our deepest sympathy, and our earnest prayers!
