    Prayers are requested for Brother Jerry Zimmerman who sent this email in response to Brother Gerold Voigt:‘ Guess the word got out.  Still running tests, but it looks strongly like multiple myeloma.  Another test on Monday, then preparation for radiation therapy and possibly chemo.  Not giving up though, just need prayers from you and the other prayer warriors there at St. Joseph.  Will try to keep you informed.’ I have not been able to reach Jerry for further information so this is all the information we have.   Please pray for success in relations to the tests, correct diagnosis, appropriate treatment and speedy and complete  recovery

    Oct. 9 - UPDATE
    Brother Bob Beasley’s daughter, Annette, was diagnosed as having Dermatomyositis (an autoimmune disease) but the treatment for this has not helped so it is assumed there is another underlying cause.  Consultation with Johns Hopkins hospital has resulted in other diagnostic tests and, though cancer has been considered, there is no evidence of any yet.  She has been taken off all medications except for steroids with which she is now treated.  Please pray for a definite diagnosis and appropriate treatment soon.  And pray for consolation for parents Bob and Chris and for the stamina and faith to bear under what must be a huge amount of  worry and stress.”

    Oct. 9 2020 UPDATE
    Michael Raynal has had radiation for the cancer and further tests reveal that  there is no spread of the cancer.  So he will be scheduled for surgery to remove the cancer.  The blood clots are resolving and should cause no further problem. He is feeling well, working at his job and generally doing well.  Please pray with gratitude that 1. The blood clots in the lungs  fortunately led to the cancer diagnosis  which would otherwise have not been discovered  2. There is no evidence of spread at this time of early diagnosis and 3. The faith of parents Allan and Lea are carrying them through this situation which is difficult for any parent. They want to thank you all for the prayers which ‘are working’”
    Prayers are requested for Michael Raynal, son of Brother Alan Raynal.  Michael was admitted to Kaiser Hospital on September 18, 2020  with symptoms of shortness of breath on exertion and found to have blood clots in his lungs.  He is stable and undergoing diagnostic tests to determine the cause of the clots and is on blood thinners.  Please pray for satisfactory results of the tests, a correct diagnosis, proper treatment and quick recovery
