Please continue to lift our families up in prayer.  The Powell's have declined greatly over the past 2 weeks.  Nana is now having to have round the clock sitters stay with them.  We have been fortunate to find someone to sit during the day but Tommy and I are having to take on the task of sitting at night.  Tommy is staying with them on the nights that I have to work to go to work the next day.  I then stay on my off days.  This leaves no time for the 3 of us to spend anytime together as a family in the evening.    My Sister's husband has just been diagnosed with Transitional Carcinoma of the Kidney.  The prognosis is unclear at this time other than they will remove his kidney and perhaps his bladder.  The cancer has infected 2/3 of his right kidney.    Our son Christopher is possibly deploying for Afghanistan in December this is all up in the air with the Army.  Both Lena Marie and Christopher are struggling with losing a grand parent. Christopher feels especially helpless being located across the ocean.   With the loss of Peggy (Tommy's sister) and Faye (my dad's wife) and my brothers recent illness things just feel like they are getting heavier and heavier. Tommy and I covet all your prayers during this time.  I know His word tells us that He will never put more on us than we can handle but sometimes things just feel as if the world is crashing down upon us.

From Missionaries John and Donna Bearden: "Please put us in your prayers. We just found out today our tourist card and Visa will not cover us but for 30 days. This means we will have to leave the country every 30 days and then return. Pray the IED will be able to help us with this matter and there will be a simple solution. We just got started. God is not finished with us and this ministry here yet. I know He is in control. This would just be very expensive for us."
