Hi Friends,

A number of people have been asking me for an update on my health, which I really appreciate.  I am so grateful for the prayers that have been sent my way!

I continue to experience repeated infections and I am starting a new course of antibiotics today.  Overall I feel fine.  My energy levels are good, my pain is minimal and I am able to live my normal lifestyle.  So when you ask me how I’m doing and I say, “Fine”, I promise I’m not lying.  However, repeated infections are obviously not a good thing and so something needs to be done.  So far the doctors have been unable to determine what is causing these infections.  I’m having a procedure tomorrow which they hope will be able to determine the cause and allow them to formulate a plan of action.  If that is inconclusive, there are two other kinds of tests I can do in the coming weeks.

If you’d be so kind as to pray for me, here is what you can pray:

  1. That the cause of these infections would be identified.
  2. That the treatment would not require invasive surgery (there is a high likelihood that it will-pray for a miracle!)
  3. That God would give me faith to trust Him as I have so much of my time taken up with doctor’s appointments, follow ups, etc…  For a guy who likes to get things done and be productive, it doesn’t get much worse then spending hours every week in various doctor’s offices.
  4. That God would give me opportunities to share the gospel with those I come in contact as I go through this ordeal.  I need His strength to walk this out in a way that honors Him and is a good witness for Him.
  5. That the Eagles would turn their season around…  Ok, I’m not really asking you to pray for that!  I just figured since I had your attention, I’d give it a try 🙂

In Christ,

Pastor Jeff
