Dear Church! This week I started my third cancer treatment cycle. Only two months of chemo remain. Then, if the myeloma protein doesn’t show in blood tests, the next step is another bone marrow biopsy. If it shows zero cancer cells present, remission has been achieved. If cancer cells are found, autologous stem cell transplant is a possible next step. My latest lab tests show the chemotherapy and targeted monoclonal antibody treatments have been very effective. I praise God for giving the medical community the tools to develop these amazing medicines. While medicine side effects can be tough, God’s grace is tougher! I’m in awe of God’s peace. He gives without measure. He has protected me from worry and fear and filled me with joyful, expectant hope. I’m also learning that He is always worthy of my worship at all times in all circumstances. John and I are humbled by the many prayers being made for us. Thank you. How precious is the body of Christ! As we continue to look to God for healing, please continue to pray in light of Psalm 73:28 But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.

Thank you church for your prayers and notes. We praise God for you. Praise the Lord with us that my first cycle of chemo treatments showed great progress toward eliminating cancer cells. My oncologist was even able to tweak treatments to hopefully provide more protection of my immune system. I began the second cycle of chemo yesterday with most of the pneumonia symptoms gone. God be praised! Please continue to pray for a quick return to strength following each treatment, strengthened back/alleviation from pain, protection from illness for both John and I, continued wisdom for my medical care team. The verse on my heart remains Psalm 73:28- But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works. Thank you :)

Thank you for helping bear our burdens! Your prayers are a sweet aroma to the Lord and are part of the works of God that we can testify. (Psalm 73:28) Early Thursday morning Marguerite became quite sick, very fast and has been in hospital with pneumonia and sepsis. Our elders & Small Group have been praying. God’s faithfully answered. Praise God for His presence, guidance, provision. Pray for healing of M’s lungs, IV infiltrations, cancer. Pray for wisdom for M’s oncologist as he makes treatment decisions. Pray for protection for both John and M from any viruses going around. Praise that this illness occurred during the week of rest they give patients inbetween chemo cycles. M should begin next chemo cycle Dec 28. M should be released from hospital by tomorrow. We plan to quarantine for a while now. We pray with you that all of our hearts might be bent toward our God Who worked the wonders of salvation by giving His One and Only Son. John & Marguerite Havard

Dear Church Family,

Please join us in prayer as Marguerite begins chemotherapy treatment this week for Multiple Myeloma (cancer of plasma cells in bone marrow). We’re so thankful for God’s clear leading in medical decisions and for His supernatural peace. Treatment is initially planned for four months. We’re asking God for strength and energy for Marguerite to continue working in the LifeCenter. Pray for our faithfulness as Christ’s ambassadors to those in the cancer center clinic, to our family members and neighbors. We’re asking Him to bring the cancer into remission quickly and for complete healing, with no lasting negative side effects. Pray for John for wisdom and perseverance as a caretaker. Thank you for your prayers - the Lord hears and answers!

I'm asking for prayers on behalf of my best friend, Cami. She's a part of our youth group; she's been experiencing immense stress over figuring out how to help her family with rent, bills, and a contract fee for a job opportunity. We're praying that this opportunity to help her family becomes available to her and, more importantly, that she and her family can trust in God to provide for them. She's been praying diligently and keeping her heart near God. She would love and appreciate your prayers.

I would greatly appreciate your prayers. Since my fall in 2020, things have been difficult. I have almost no feeling in my left leg and most days I am in pain in my back and neck because of arthritis setting in. I am finally starting to realize that the Lord has plans for me that are not what I had in mind. Life is changing and it is difficult to accept at times. I am praying about moving to Tennessee to be near my 2nd son and the grandchildren there. It will be my final move in life and I love the South and I have never been near my 6 grandchildren there. Looking at selling my home and finding one in Johnson City as I do not want to rent in between.

I am asking prayer for my brother, Steve (he is the son of Norma Jacobson as well), who has been suffering from an unknown illness which is affecting his right arm and leg. He has had 2 MRIs, a CT scan, blood work, Xrays, and a spinal tap so far. Tests showed several white spots in his spinal cord near the brain stem, but the cause is a mystery. Steve has a spinal angiogram on May 12, 6 am. Please pray for healing, peace, direction, wisdom...all the things that God provides when we are in need.
