Urgent Prayer Request
Thu., Nov. 4. 2004 7:47pm EST
Please pray for our former drummer and lifetime friend Fred Behanna and his daughter Beth, whose Hodgkin's Disease has gotten much worse. Fred firmly believes in the power of prayer and God's ability to perform miracles. He's seen plenty of them, as he is a longtime believer.
Beth has been a believer since a very young age (She turned 26 on the birthday she shares with our Karl, March 21st). She first developed Hodgkin's several years ago and has had several relapses after it appeared the disease had been defeated. She also lost a very, very close friend to the same disease. As the Bible says, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick." Consequently, this has been a very hard battle for both her and Fred. Now it's gotten harder. Here's the latest report from Fred:
"Beth got a devasting report on Monday Nov
1. The Hodgkins is spreading rapidly and her most recent lymphocite treatment has done nothing to stop it. Her options are limited since they have tried about everything. If they can't come up with something the dr. only gives her about six months. God has got to do something; we can't take much more of this. We need Divine intervention here and we need it fast, please continue to pray for her."
If you would like to email Fred, his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . I have been unable to get a current mailing address for him, and I hear he has moved recently. Please pray for Beth and for Fred.
