I just received a phone call from my daughter Jessica, who told me that her husband Andrew's Uncle, Peter, died from a massive heart attack this evening. He was 65 and leaves a grieving family. Prayers of comfort for the entire family and for all who will be travelling to pay their respects.
Thanks and blessings, Pastor
I want to thank all of you for your prayers on my and my family's behalf over the course of the past few weeks. They have had a truly miraculous effect upon us. The doctors are very pleased with my progress and I have been released to return to ministry responsibilities and duties. I will be returning to the pulpit this Sunday to celebrate worship and communion with you and am excited to do so. Once again, our God has been working in ways that truly show the depth of His love and care for us, and the amazing power of intercessory prayer.
Thank you all and may God bless your day, Pastor

A quick note to let all know we are home, Jim has had his shower, eating a chicken salad..no bread, I will fix him a latte and he will be one happy man. He loves his freedom and to be home. What an experience! We came home with a bag of meds and he will need two shots in the tummy a day. Blood test on Monday for warfarin and vit D count. You will probably hear from him tomorrow.
Thank you all. We are happy. :) Kath

Prayers and assistance: Please read this letter from Martin Luther School in Joplin, MO that suffered much damage in the recent tornado.
Stephen and Maggie Oliver are Missionaries at China Lutheran Seminary in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
Please pray for mother and baby--also help for dad Stephen. They have 2 boys, 2 and 4 years old.Maggie has completed the 30th week of pregnancy yesterday (7 months completed and two months to go), but has been having too many contractions and her cervix even opened half a finger, so the doctor put her on complete bed-rest at home with anti-contraction medicine. She will see the doctor again next Wednesday, and if she is still in the danger zone for premature delivery, she will have to stay in the hospital like last time so that they can control everything better. I still have one more week of school so have become very very busy with everything involved. But we also have many to help us, especially the Lord!
In His Love,Stephen
Wednesday night up-date: Jim was moved out of ICU and now shares a room with another guy, has a bathroom (but can't take a shower yet), phone (but we couldn't find it when it was ringing...it was in a drawer), we do "walk abouts" around the unit's circle, he still tires easily but was up most of the day. He likes to be able to move. His body needs to get use to the warfarin and then he can come home...hopefully tomorrow. I might have to give him a shot in his stomach for a couple days but not sure the doc will let me (I did give shots to horses, goats, cats and dogs...can't be much different :) His hair is a grease mess. I tried dry shampoo but didn't do much so after giving him a sponge bath, I put baby powder all over him and in his hair. He smelled nice and felt better. Helped a little with the hair. He loved all the Get Well Cards. So sweet and some really good artists at Calvary. Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. Pray he gets to come home tomorrow.

Jim's results...originally he had a 100% clogged front artery that leads to his lower heart and they were able to put in a stent and also remove a blood clot. His lower and upper heart aren't in sync right now but they hope it will correct itself. They are worried about blood clots forming, so he will be on 2 aspirin, plavex, and warfarin for a couple months with many blood tests. He has to stay in the hospital one or two more days til his body gets use to regulate the warfarin. He will be moved to the cardiac unit tomorrow and will come home maybe Thursday. He still tires easily so visiting is limited. The docotrs are pleased and Jim is in good spirits. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.
Please pray for continued healing and a patient man. :) Kath
