Hello. I am writing to ask for prayer regarding our foster daughter who we've had since she was 3 days old. She will soon be a year old. As this baby's parents, we have nurtured her, loved her, and protected her. At this time, we stand a possibility of losing this child, who we know as our daughter, to circumstances which I fear will be traumatic, and could even be harmful. In addition, these circumstances may cost her a relationship with her siblings who live in another home. This baby is our daughter. She knows us as her parents. This is absolutely tearing our hearts out, and we're asking God to please extend mercy to both us, and to the baby for her well being, her future, and her safety. Please pray that God will protect this little baby, and that her world will not be ripped away from her. Please pray that eyes blinded by selfish hearts will be opened, and that we will adopt this child.

This past Monday I was suicidal. The ER in Hannibal could not find a hospital to take me. I was sent home and friends stayed with me until Wednesday afternoon. Please pray that I can feel better soon.

Please pray for my son Andrew. He is trying to sell their house. They had a baby in September with kidney issues and now she is pregnant again. They are living in a 2 bedroom house. They have put a bid on a 4 bedroom house that God put in their path for the same payment as what they are making now. They just need to sell their house fast. God put Janet Arns in their path (long story but it was all God).

Please pray for Alyssa who is claiming to be an atheist. Ask for her to be broken and humbled before God. May she surrender to God and glorify Him by living the life He created her to live. Thank you.

Brother's & Sister's, I wanted to update everyone on where I currently am in my life.....As I said previously, my wife, Marla, has filed for divorce. 9 months ago, this would have killed me but with the blessing of Jesus in my life, he has calmed those waters. Don't get me wrong, I am sad but still hopeful. I continually seek Jesus and continue to draw nearer to HIM. I miss my kids like any father would. If I let myself dwell on that loss it would take me to such darkness but with the blessing from Jesus those days are over or should I say much easier. I still don't know what the future holds but I do know that with Jesus by my side, anything is possible. My walk with HIM has a lot more to go..... but looking back in retrospect, I've come such a long way and I praise his name for what HE has done in my life. I just wish my wife could see this or even hear about it. I know I can't think this way. Like a lot of my Brother's & Sister's have told me, I can only help myself keeping Jesus #1 in my life. So with this, I continue to ask you all for prayers that restoration can occur in my family and marriage. Thank you all for being a part of my life during this time. I have become friends with some of you and cherish that friendship. I love you all! Bruce
