Please Pray!!

Hey y’all, I’ve got a pretty urgent prayer request for you. Yesterday morning Aaron called to let me know that his dad had just gone to the emergency room because he had been bitten by a water moccasin. Pastor Baker had been out weeding in the garden and gotten bitten on his right hand on either side of his knuckle. They rushed him to the emergency room right away with the thought that he’d be able to go home in about 6 hours. Well, the swelling that started in his hand has now spread well past his elbow and he is still experiencing pain. He has received several doses of anti-venom medication but because the swelling continues to spread, the doctors have now put him on a continual dose of the anti-venom until things start to improve. They have him in the intensive care unit right now so they can keep a close eye on him. Pray for his quick recovery with no lasting effects from this. Also, pray for wisdom, peace and strength for the whole Baker family as they make decisions and stay with him there at the hospital. I’ll update again as soon as anything changes! Thank you so much!!!

” . . . pray for one another that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16

  4. Thank y’all so much for praying. Even yesterday Aaron didn’t think it would be possible for his dad to go home earlier than late tonight so God has done amazing things and sped up this healing process! We love you guys and again, really appreciate your care and support during all of this! We thank the Lord for you!
