Urgent Prayer Request!

Sunday Afternoon Update:
Just got back from my sister's house. I went with her to the doctors Friday and they are aggressively treating her donor host disease with the belief it will allow her lungs and other organs to heal. I got a chance to minister to her and some direction from God in how best to do that now. Thank you all for your prayers!

I am asking everyone who reads this blog to pray for my sister, Rachel Batson. She is 39 years old and has a aplastic anemia. This is a blood disorder in which the body does not reproduce blood as it should. Rachel had a bone marrow transplant last year but has since developed graft versus host disease. The disease is in the organs of her body. This is causing the organs to shut down. She especially needs prayer for her lungs. The doctors at Vanderbilt Hospital are saying she only has 2-3 months to live with her lungs as they are.

Please pray for:

  • a healing in her body
  • total commitment to Jesus Christ
  • her husband-Billy
  • her son-Trevor
  • peace
  • strength for me as I minister to her
  • my parents and other family members
  • safety as I travel

Thank you!
