Prayers for Classmates

We are trying a new webpage "Prayers for Classmates" specifically for those with:

1. Long term or ongoing Health issues of theirs or a family member,

2. Life-threatening Health conditions for them or a member, or 

3. Deaths of a Family member

The idea is for you to send us a notice of a classmate experiencing any of the above and we will post it to the page to alert the class. Class members and Guests can then go to that person's page and post a comment to them or use the email direct button to send them an email.

** Please join us in lifting Bob Johnson, husband of Classmate Paula Davis Johnson in prayers. Here is Bobs Journey in Paula’s own words.  "Bob had prostate cancer and had surgery to remove it in February 2012.  It came back in 2016 and they started the hormone blocking shots which stopped it until 2020 when it metastasized to the bone.  They started radiation injections, but the tumor was too aggressive and he began having severe pain in the back and started losing feeling in his legs and falling.  We went to the emergency room on June 7th and they did emergency back surgery and removed the tumor. We did rehab in Katy where he will be until Friday.  He is doing better, but all of the feeling is not back in his legs and torso yet.  We will continue in home therapy until he is strong enough to do out-patient therapy.
   He was allowed one visitor a day until this week when they stopped visitors all together.  That has been so hard for all of us, especially him.  He started having anxiety attacks, but they have given him medication for that and he is doing much better, just counting the days until he can come home.  My son and his family live next door, so we are working hard to get the house wheelchair ready and praying for Friday to get here.
I so appreciate your prayers.  This has definitely been the toughest journey of my life, but with prayer and my God, we will come out of this stronger and better. Just counting the days until Bob is home." ~ Paula.        ... [posted by Ramon]

** Please join our Class Prayers Warriors lifting up prayers for Classmate Llold. I ask Lloyd, "Could you use some of us praying for you? Would you want me to include you on our JTHS65 website page Prayers for Classmates?" Lloyd responded, "I thank everyone for their prayers. Without them I am sure that would not be where I am today. As far as “Prayers for classmates” I would not mind at all, It will take prayers from all of us to help any one of us with their issues!
Ramon, to be perfectly truthful with you, I am not OK. I am surrounded by teams of doctors that can’t fix it. So, I have given it over to the Master Physician for final resolution. Thank you so much for asking that particular question, not many people do that any more."
In Christ, Lloyd                                                                                    [posted by Ramon Ivey, web manger]

Eight weeks later after 6 weeks in the hospital and 2 at a rehab facility he has been brought to hospice. His kidneys are failing. Dialysis was ruled out because too hard on his body.  By being over here my son and I can visit from 8am to 9pm. If necessary we can stay overnight.
