Jeremiah 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you, "declares the LORD”, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Dear Father in Heaven,

On this day, I claim your promise of prosperity, your plan of hope, and your promise not to harm.

In Jesus Holy name I pray, Amen



ALL, I am a living, breathing, walking, talking example of how God’s ways are higher than mine.

I bear witness to the fact that God has been so, so merciful to me and has repeatedly blessed my family during this fight with cancer these past 6 years.

Today, Peggy and I met with Dr. Barlogie in Little Rock. He explained to us that we have exhausted all the therapies and treatments that would successfully suppress the Myeloma for long periods of time. We have returned to Memphis and will continue taking chemotherapy locally to slow things down as best we can and manage my pain.

We want to thank each and every one of you for all the wonderful ways that YOU have ministered to us. And, for all the prayers that have been lifted. Please continue to pray for us.

As the Lord declared, He still has plans for me (and you) and my kids and I sure do want to see a few more blessings poured out on His people before I catch a Holy chariot ride out of here!

In His Name,

Frank

I have heard His word and seen His eyes in each of you, my precious and most valued friends. No man has shown more courage than seen in you; no woman more faithfulness... no children shine the light of His path more than yours. You are all my heroes.

“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples” John 13:34-35

You all live this scripture each day and are the truest examples of disciples I have ever known.

Your Aunt Aundria is in my Sunday School class and keeps us posted. She was faithful to pray for me when I needed her to and, in turn, I am prompted almost daily to pray for you. It is evident that you and your family are truly special and I pray for a healing miracle in your life.

I have been, and continue to be, amazed and blessed by you & Peggy and the kids. A while back you had Phil 4:6-7 on your blog and I keep that tacked to my wall at work. "Be anxious for nothing....." Much Love-Vicki in Denver
