Blessings to all of you! May started relatively calm then got very busy. We were very excited to finally meet four-year-old, Zadee Lopez! What an adorable little girl! To look at her you would not know she has brain cancer. Zadee is the third of four children. Rick, now a single dad, is a full-time parent who is an amazing caretaker and loving parent who struggles financially. Through Spring Creek Ministries we were able to give him $500.00 to assist him. Thank you to those who gave dedicate amounts for this. Rick was very grateful. This will help him to keep his car.
Becky Bock lost her mother to a very long battle with Alzheimer’s just a few weeks ago. Please remember Galen, Becky and all of the family in your prayers.
Our hearts are heavy with the passing of seven week old, Sayge Massie. No known cause of death at this time. Her parents, Shawn and Jena, along with her sisters, Gracelyn and Alise, are heartbroken and in need of your prayers in this difficult time. Sunday morning, we (Lonnie and Donna) were invited to speak to the bible class that Shawn and Jena attend at Broadway Church of Christ. We offered insight on what to say and what not to say to a grieving family. Their bible class is hurting along with the Massie family. We could tell the class is close and they will be a tremendous support to the Massie’s.
James “Sandy” Sanderson, the father of our friend, Brian Sanderson, passed away and his funeral is Tuesday May 24th. Our prayers and condolences to Brian, Mrs. Sanderson, and the family.
Cooper & Savana Erwin are both doing great. They have had no news on a transplant liver for Savana and are just waiting to get a call. Please pray that the transplant will become available soon!
Easton Lopez is the toddler that fell out of his crib several months ago. After several months in PICU he was taken home on a portable ventilator and feeding tube. Easton still continues to be unconscious but Mona, his mother, told me that they are still trying to wean him off of the ventilator. He has actually gone 30 minutes with out breathing assistance! Please continue to pray for the Lopez family as they adjust to their new “normal”.
AJ Cucksey is a child that was diagnosed with several brain tumors a while back. His attitude has been unbelievable through all of his treatments. We are proud to announce that AJ has been chosen as Tennessee’s 2016-17 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champion. AJ and his family will serve as spokespeople for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and be advocates for charitable giving to children’s hospitals across the nation. Congratulations AJ!
Dennis Wolfe is a friend that has been waiting for a heart transplant for some time. In the last several weeks he has gone through a really tough time. He is currently on a ventilator and heart & lung machine. The doctors are saying that his improvements will come in tiny steps and he has a very long road to recovery. Also, because of his current status, he is no longer a qualified to receive a transplant. Please pray for positive changes!
Danny Wren suffered a stroke a few years ago and ever since has not been able to regulate his blood pressure. It is either very high or very low. This ongoing challenge has landed him in the hospital several times and causes tremendous amounts of frustration for him. His Lubbock doctors have not been able to figure out the problem. Please pray for him to be referred to someone else that can help.
Judy Butler is a sweet elderly lady that is currently in palliative care at Covenant Hospital in Lubbock. Please remember her and her husband, Frank, also!
Due to some commitments that have recently fallen through, our operating funds are very low. It has become a day-to-day challenge to cover costs for Spring Creek Ministries. Donna and I still feel that the Lord is calling us to serve in this capacity. We are soliciting your continued prayers as we daily put our faith in God. We know that He will provide if this is the direction He wants us to go. In the meantime I am doing some side jobs that the Lord has blessed us with. I am truly amazed, over and over, how the Lord works in our lives, if we allow Him too!
We love and thank God for all of you,
