Prayers From India

Pastor Joshua is our good friend and brother in the Lord living in Rajahmundry, India. He and his church, as well as Christians from many churches in the surrounding villages, are praying for Dave and his recovery from this leukemia. We love that! These people in India truly know what desperation of many kinds feels like. Many of them live in desperation and struggle every day, so to know that they are also diligently praying for Dave is just so amazing.

We wanted to share with you part of an email Pastor Joshua sent this week:

Every day watching I am broken in my heart with the battle Dave is fighting. After prayer, God has given me a promise which is, “I, the Lord, watch over it. I water it continuously. I guard it day and night so that no one may harm it.” Isaiah 27:3.  

Dear sister Carol, God is watching and guarding day and night. I believe it with my whole heart. Please cast your burden on him. Regularly and continuously praying for our Beloved Pastor Dave for his good health. Praying the stem cells do not cause any side effects and increase required other cells which can help him recover full health.

Thank you, Pastor Joshua! We love that promise God gave you for Dave. We are going to take that promise to heart and know that God really is watching and guarding day and night. That is something we can hang onto and something that gives us great confidence and hope.

We love you and all the people there in Rajahmundry and surrounding villages who are praying for Dave. Please tell them all thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
