God is Good and everything happens in His timing. On Sunday, Dec. 2nd two friends and I prayed at church for God to coordinate getting the supplies to those in need in New Jersey. On the 3rd I found out a group were leaving from Bangor to volunteer in NJ on the 8th for a week. I sent an e-mail to 2 friends letting them know what was going on and asked them to pray and forward the e-mail as appropriate. On the 4th a friend called and said he would loan a 8'x10' trailer to haul the supplies to NJ. We packed it 80% full on the 7th and it was taken on the 8th to NJ. Thank you to all that prayed.

I want to thank everyone who prayed. God coordinated that I learned a local church team was traveling to NJ on Dec. 8th to work helping those devastated by Hurricane Sandy. A local christian man loaned his closed in (8x10') trailer to me to send with these men and women that we have never met. We filled the trailer about 80% full with blankets, coats, personal hygiene items and tools. There is still much need for helpers and tools in the NJ area. I know God is blessing these items to help those in need. It was amazing to watch God connect all these dots via phone calls between strangers who all love and serve Jesus.

I want to thank all who prayed for us to have our grandchildren placed with us as DHHS took custody. In 2010 it started with my granddaughter, then in 2011 my grandson and now with our 3rd granddaughter. during this time our daughter has matured some but still has a long way to go but is working on it. While we did not get the answer from God we wanted we know he has done whats best for the grandchildren. The 1st 2 are together with a cousin and doing great, we do have contact with them some and get to see them when we can but they have moved out of state so not as much as we would like. The last grand child is with a family in town and we have contact with her too. Hard as it is I know we would have a hard time if they had come to live with us due to aour age and health issues. Thank you all so much ad we ask that yu keep them, our daughter and us in prayer still. God bless you all

My husband was sick and dying in May with advanced stage 4 prostate cancer. He was given 12-18 months to live. Through the help of a Cancer Coach and some amazing doctors we found out that the cause was root canals and dental implants. We just got word yesterday that he is cancer free and he did it the natural way. Not with chemo and radiation. We are so grateful to God for leading us to the team of incredible men.
December 12, 2012
We had asked for prayers, when my husband who had just been diagnosed with terminal, stage 4 prostate cancer, because he lost his dog guide Colby at the same time. He died of a large tumor on his spleen. He had never been sick a day in his 11 years of life and within 5 hours he was gone while we were down in Boston at Lahey Clinic for my husband's hip surgery. We had to leave there without Colby. But God has given him another guide dog that is so much like Colby we feel like we have him back and this new dog and Bill love each other SO much. Thank you all for your prayers.

To say that I am grateful for all of you who have prayed for my sister doesn't begin to show my gratitude and the greatest praise goes to our precious, gracious heavenly Father. My sister was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer and completed 4 rounds of chemotherapy. We as a family, are praising our Saviour that the genetic test came back negative, she does NOT carry the BRCA1 or 2 gene! She will now have a 5 days a week, 6 week course of radiation and prayerfully this will be the last time she has to be treated for cancer. We know that God has allowed this for His purpose and we trust Him to work out His plan. Thank you, again, for your prayers on her behalf - keep looking up until He returns!

THANK YOU all who have prayed for my daughter and her many diseases- In June I took my daughter to a prayer/deliverance pastor who prayed for her healing, and so many symptoms were healed: visual problems connected to migraines - they are gone (black spots, weird lights, wavy lines in vision). THE MIGRAINES THEMSELVES are gone (they used to happen a few times a week!) A limp that she had because of crooked hips and a shorter leg, disappeared. Much chronic pain left - the whole right side of her body was ALWAYS in pain, but not now! Her digestion is the best it has been in years, and also, no more seizures! My daughter has been bed ridden on and off for almost 11 years. ... she seems to be experiencing increasing well being and healing each day...thank you all who prayed. We are amazed -- and praising the Lord. Please praise the Lord with us...if anyone would pray for her spiritual growth, I will thank you in Heaven...please pray that she becomes a student of the Word with a heart for worship...
June 18, 2012

My husband was diagnosed with terminal, aggressive prostate cancer and they have given him 1 - 1 1/2 years to live. But we serve a bigger God that can handle any problem. Through your prayers and my husband's will to survive we are killing the cancer. He is doing amazing well and we just ask that you keep praying until we lick this thing, with God's help.
May 21, 2012
My sister had round 1 of 4 rounds of chemotherapy and has suffered just about every side effect that she could. Praise the Lord, the thrush that is throughout her mouth/throat/esophagus/stomach is subsiding and she's able to drink and eat again! She spent 4 out of 10 days at the cancer center but we're praising our Saviour that today she feels 75% better. We appreciate your prayers for her as she continues on this path that the Lord is walking beside her on.

Thank you to all who prayed for my sister yesterday as she received the results from her breast cancer surgery. The report was positive, if any cancer report ever is, and shows that the cancer is not in her lymph nodes. She is diagnosed with Stage 2, Grade 2 cancer and will proceed with chemotherapy in a couple of weeks, so we'd appreciate ongoing prayers for her and the family. God has allowed this for His purpose, which we may never know, and we are asking for His will to be done in her body and in hearts.

My husband is an alcoholic and for many years I have prayed for his healing from alchohol and anger issues. I am happy to say that although, it took alot of difficult things to happen for him to face his addiction, he has been alcohol free for 5 months and has been in church beside me every Sunday for the last 5 months. He is truly a different man. God performed a miracle in him.

The coworker who threatened to go postal has been removed and terminated from their job. The hospital is now relatively safe. My friend has a temporary offer to stay with another coworker who lives closer to work so the 6 hr traveling commute every work day is drastically reduced. Now the task will be to sort possessions to be stored, throw, or donated as well as transporting these items. There have been several blessings in my friends life which are encouraging to me. Our LORD is so good and will meet our needs if we only trust in HIM!

The unwanted divorce was finalized in court November 16th & signed Dec. 5th. Now I am forced into a position where I can not meet my living expenses and the added debt, court fees, and alimony. So I am totally relying on our gracious LORD! Even through this last year of emotional pain I am experiencing God's blessings through the pain. GOD is GOOD ALL the time, and ALL the time GOD is GOOD!!! Romans 8:28.

December 27, 2011
Praise God! Midnight (the cat) was able to come home friday Dec. 23rd! He was unable to walk and did not want to eat. My family & I went to the Christmas eve service and when we came home on Dec. 24th around 8pm the cat walked to us with one strong leg, still dragging the other but he walked! His appetite had come back and he ate two cans of cat food and drank lots of milk! I want to praise God for my furry Christmas Miracle!!! I had maxed out my credit card with the deposit required by the vet last Thursday Dec. 22,and did not know how I was going to pay for the rest when I returned on friday Dec. 23, I did not know how I was going to pay for the vet bill. My mother came forth and let me put the remaining balance of $244 on her credit card. She is in a very tight financial situation as she needs to buy a new car and she is a single mother on a very limited income. I want to thank God for my mother! I pray that God will in turn bless her with finding a car she is able to afford. My cat midnight still has a long road as he needs to regain function in his other foot and his lymph nodes need to go down, but he is back to himself. I am so thankful for what God did over Christmas!!!!

God is so amazing! Back in June I had a camera stolen from my home, we had taken in a women, Nicole, from the homeless shelter along with her three children. Finally ten months later, Nicole was about to get a place, and God was moving in her life in big ways, then she started heading down the wrong path again, and that's is when my camera came up missing. Now months later my camera turned up, the one that Nicole our house guest had stolen - my 50D camera. Yesterday God made it possible for me to have my camera returned. God orchestrated all the events which culminated in the return of the camera. It is way too big for me to ever understand with my tiny little brain, it included a wedding in Harrisburg, PA, a throttle stick and problem, a van breakdown, a trip for the homeless women, Nicole, to Rhode Island along with the camera, and God's divine intervention by the Holy Spirit prompting the women to return the camera to her mom to return it back to me. Praising God for HIS influence in everyone's life, even the unsaved. He is working HIS will and I am trusting in that today. And praising HIM for the return of a camera, I had trusting God and I knew I would see it again. So remember when you have done everything in your own power through the trial, strive always towards keeping God as your focus at all times, just trust God to takes over and the results will be amazing!!! Trust God!!! Be faithful, finish the race!

The court hearing last week was not what was expected by any one but GOD. The original paperwork was lost and some not signed by the Judge. As a result initial stuff was re-established. The hearing on my financial obligation will be Nov 10. Due to increases in other cost, decreases in dependance status, and now having the opportunity to Tithe, any amount for alimony will head me down the road to bankruptcy BUT I know our GOD is faithful! He will work all this out Rom. 8:28. I just have to keep verses in mind like Prov 3:5-10. I am also seeing other spiritual blessing in my life which reasure me that He is in control! Thank you GOD for the LOVE you show me and for Jesus who is carrying me through this most difficult time in my life. I am living your "blessings' through the pain. Amen.
October 04, 2011
I requested prayer for my family to find a Christian church to return to worship. Although we have not yet done so as a family, God has opened our hearts and we have decided together that we need to return to a church home. Doors are opening that will free us from obligations of employment by providing a different job. I pray that these doors remain open and we are able to see beyond our own inhibitions and excuses to choose and be loyal to a bible based local church.

Update on Gabriel~After a very long day at Hopkins, we have several 'to do's': 1) serial casting on both legs for 1 1/2-2 months where he is casted and then each week they are sawed off and then replaced; 2) looking for an 'apothecary' to mix several meds that Gabriel refuses to take to make a 'disguised' compound that we can administer.. daily to him. Heart medicine will have to given seperately since it loses its authenticity with combination of other drugs; 3) aqua therapy will cease for the time that he is casted and then will resume both in Forest Hill at Aquaculture AND Johns Hopkins.. Johns Hopkins is ordering a 'stander' for our house so that Gabriel can be STRAPPED in a standing position to stretch what is quickly becoming VERY tight in his hips, calves, and back. It is not good that he is not walking since it can cause scholosis (think I spelled that right). With the help of this contraption, he can at least stand for now for long periods of time; ordering the DREADED chair~ which will hopefully be disguised as not really looking like a chair ~ not a power one since they are and we are still hoping that all of the above will enable Gabriel to get on his feet again. Dexascan to be scheduled with Endocronologist which we have done once before and let's just say...John and I will WIN the fight that Gabriel gives us in being still for 45 minutes...we sweat and are weary BUT all for a good reason. TOMATO ordered thru Johns Hopkins Charitable funds...thank you so much. Special needs equipment and the like is SOOO incredibly expensive. A few other appointments coming up in the next couple of weeks including the serial casting so please continue to pray for us through this long BUT short journey with our beautiful Gabriel. Oh, and forgot that the cardiology piece of the appointment did identify a larger, but not significantly larger for them to worry about at this point, opening at the top of the aorotic valve. Their belief is that this is probably due to he fact that Gabriel is a small little guy that his doesn't believe...so that opening grew to the size that it thinks it should but his 'small in stature' build doesn't support it. They will continue to monitor since, at some point, if it becomes severe, replacing the aorotic valve becomes surgically necessary...ugh... Gabriel is 50 pounds and holding...only gained a few ounces from last visit so John and I weren't scolded on poundate gained. He grew an inch and half BUT doesn't even measure on the charts for his age. Our last name isn't LITTLE for nothing! The un-sweetned iced tea is his best friend

we have been fighting DHHS for over a year to have our grandchildren placed with us. We are able to give them a safe loving home but DHHS has chosen to place them elsewhere to improve their numbers on "saving kids" . Now they say the grandchildren have bonded in their new home and do not want to cause them stress or disrupt their enviroment although it didn't bother them to do that very thing in the beginning. We have a bond with them and they would not be placed in a strange home with total strangers as the case was when DHHS first took them.Althoug their mom, our daughter, still has growing up and maturing to do the grandchildren could safely be placed in our care with her as a secondary caregiver. Please continue to pray for us as time is running out. For now all we have is the hope and prayer that the court of appeals will overturn the courts decision of termination of parental rights and alow us placement while our daughter continues therapy to deal with her ADD and other issues.
March 30, 2011
The Lord has been working and we can see a definite change in her life. She is attending outpatient groups everyday and coming to church each Sunday. Keep praying!!

I had been slated to enter a center for depression treatment. I needed $20,000 and would be gone from my family (husband and 3 children) for 4 weeks. We didn't have the finances nor did we know how we would get by while I was gone, but we put our faith in God. I never receieved funds in time enough to go...but I knew that God was working. In the same 4 week span that I would have been gone...God miraculously healed me from depression!!! It has been a time of great rejoicing!!! Sometimes when we get a "no" answer we think God doesn't care but when He closes a door, he opens a window to a miracle! Don't lose heart and don't lose faith....God is in control!!!
February 14, 2011
