We have an update on two urgent prayer requests:
1.) Tammy will be going to a well-respected international hospital on Tuesday morning, Bangkok time (Monday evening in the USA). She will have a colonoscopy and gastroscopy to investigate the large polyp found two weeks ago and look for other areas of concern. The hospital team may also remove the large polyp when they are doing these procedures. Please join us in praying for Tammy from 9:00 pm Monday evening to 1:00 am Tuesday morning EDT as she goes through these procedures and subsequent recovery.
Also, Tammy and Wayne will meet with a gastric oncologist on Sunday morning, September 5, Bangkok time (Saturday evening in the USA). He will review the medical findings concerning the tumor on Tammy's pancreas and determine the next steps. This is a second opinion meeting to verify that the initial diagnosis is correct. Please be praying for us during this time, especially from 11:00 pm Saturday night to 2:00 am Sunday morning EDT.
2.) While the COVID—19 situation in Thailand is still bad, the stress on the hospital system is much less now than two weeks ago. As a result, it no longer looks like we will need to leave Thailand for a safer location. Thank you for praying with us over this issue. Please continue to pray for an end to this horrible pandemic. We are likewise praying for all our family and friends in the USA and around the world as we all continue to suffer through this latest Delta Variant outbreak.
We truly do appreciate all those who join us in prayer whenever we post a need. Our prayer team is a major force in keeping us engaged in the work God has called us to do. I don't think we could have maintained this work for nearly 17 years without your faithful prayers.
