We had quite a few messages so i guess there are still a good number of people out there! (I felt a bit silly asking if anyone was still tuned in afterwards)
I was told of people still praying overseas in places like Thailand and India and we know Georgina is prayed for by the Howells and their churches in the Phillipines and a few churches where she is still on the church bulletin.
It was a great encouragement.
Some folks asked how come with so much prayer she isn't healed? - if only i knew!("In the world ye shall have tribulation" yeah we's been gettin' some tribulation! but so have many of you in one way or another no doubt)
Still God has not changed. He is still on the throne.
Georgie is not as sick as she could have been but is still a bit congested and the seizures have been worse again. Every time she gets really sick it is so hard all over again as we think will this be the last few days now. A friend contacted 11 intercessors from her church (Dubbo CCC) the other night to have them pray also. It is amazing that there are still those with faith. Faith that God hears their prayer - and this faith not of ourselves....
We have been praying a lot for our former pastor from Cobar - Ian, who has battled with oesophageal cancer. He had a major operation removing part of the oesophagus, part of the stomach, lymph nodes, veins but is now home at Forbes and going quite well. I rang him the other day and he was his same old cheerful self. Just the same. It was a great encouragement. He needs prayer.
We heard from Heidi down the coast and her family is going great. We got to know Heidi and her family at Ronald McDonald house. Her little girl had a form of leukaemia but she is now in the clear. Ange and Heidi used to take the Ronald McDonald house bus with various mums out to Hillsong on Thursdays for the "sisterhood" meeting. It was such an encouragement to them all who were battling so many different things with their babies. Heidi's whole family came to make commitments to God. Some people we knew had children who passed on into glory. These were hard days and amazing days - praying through each illness and the bond of the ladies together who knew what each medical report meant for one another's children and how they came to rely on one another to pray. There are so many stories- some complete miracles of healing, some sad ones too and some with hope, but they're probably not really mine to tell.
We have lately been reading on prayer(of course), election (don't understand it all - just glad we're part of it),
Something to pray:-
"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know".
John 14 1-4
