Prayer Request

I have a special prayer request for Husband's coworker and friend Brian Skelding. His oldest daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia yesterday. Her name is Emily. She is on the left of this picture. I ask that whoever reads this to please lift up this family in their prayers. I am wanting to start some kind of blog with updates and specific prayer request for this family. I will keep you updated as I find out more information. Pray specifically today as Emily will undergo a bone marrow aspiration.

You might remeber Brian as a member of Team Roach in the Jingle Bell Run this past December. Brian and his wife Michele's family both do not live here. Michele home shcools all three girls. Pray for them and their other children as they begin the road of treatment. The doctors are optimistic that they have caught it early.

I will pray Marsha... if you would like me to add them to my prayer blog I can do that. Just let me know...

Miss you!

Do you know what type of Leukemia? Adam doesn't know any details.

Marsha said...

Erica, it is my impression that they do not know that at this time. But the testing they are doing today will give them more details. We will have to take over the information gathering...

Erica said...

Please let me know if you find anything out.

We will prayer for them as well. You should also take a look at http://HolyLandPrayer.com. They are doing something great. Connecting the world with the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. Our mom was very sick and we lit a candle for her at the Church.

God bless.
