Beloved Concordia Family (and extended family and friends),
Sheri Best is battling Crohns Disease and has been having a tremendous battle. She receive her first chemo infusion a week ago and it seemed to work, but then a few days later she began having excruciating pain again. The doctors have moved her next infusion up from next Wednesday to tomorrow. This is a “last ditch” effort before Sheri will have to have surgery. In fact, if the infusion doesn’t work, she will have surgery next week.
The treatment is scheduled for 11 AM tomorrow and I am asking for your prayers for this wonderful young woman, her husband, and miraculous healing for her body. Please pray for immediate relief from the pain and rest. She is exhausted and, as you might imagine, more than a little anxious to avoid a difficult surgery. Please also pray for peace for Sheri and Kevin (her husband) to know that God will not abandon them. Please ask God to give Sheri strength of body, mind and faith to endure this battle.
Kevin and Sheri are VERY grateful for your prayers and loving support in so many ways. As always, I am amazed by your love for one another and am honored to be your pastor. Thank you for your prayers!
I sought the Lord, and HE answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4
I will give you back your health and heal your wounds,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: HE alone is my refuge, my place of safety; HE is my God, and I trust HIM. Psalm 91:1, 2
