Prayer Request from OK District Office

Many of you are aware of the situation regarding Grant Rustin, son of Stuart & Annette Rustin and grandson of Philip & Charla. (Stuart is the associate pastor at Durant First.)
Grant was injured in a swimming accident over the weekend and was airlifted to a hospital in Dallas. There is some paralysis, but the immediate concern has been lung issues and fear of pneumonia. They removed a breathing tube yesterday, but Grant is not yet able to clear all the congestion in his airways, so the tube was re-inserted. His fever is down some, and they are continuing to treat the lung issues. As I understand it, Grant is conscious and responsive and aware of his surroundings.
The good news is that the spinal cord and blood vessels were not severed, and there is hope that when swelling goes down, movement of his lower body and legs will return.
There are already a number of miracles in this story and we’re praying and believing that there are more ahead. Keep Grant, Stuart and Annette in your prayers as well as the entire family as God continues to work his Good Will.
Thank you for your loving support.


Please pray!

Just received this message from our District Office:
“We just received word that Danny Dillon, husband of Mary Ann, pastor at Konawa, was killed in a traffic accident on his way to work this morning. Mary Ann was at her daughter’s home in Texarkana when she received word.
We’ll pass the word along as more information becomes available. Everyone lift Mary Ann and the family in your prayers this morning.”

Prayer Request from Pennsylvania

This request comes from my previous church in Dover, PA.  Phil is a dear friend of mine and I want to share this request with my Sallisaw First family and friends.  There is great power in prayer!  -  Pastor Becki

“Prayer chain needed for a Mountain Grove Chapel family member….Phil Shenk is battling lung cancer and has been having chemo treatments. Currently he is in the Hershey Medical Center needing surgery for a ruptured Diaphragm which is blocked by his small intestines. He will have to wait for the chemo to clear his body before he is able to have surgery. Please pray for Phil that he will be able to have his surgery as soon as possible. Prayers for complete healing from this and his cancer would be greatly appreciated along with prayers for his wife Alice and his 2 girls,  April and Amanda. Please pray and share!”



Prayer Request from the Mid-Atlantic District

Please share this prayer request with your people…….
Word from the hospital (Johns Hopkins) regarding Tom Gray is not good today (Tuesday, June 11, 2013).  He is at another critical juncture following his bone marrow transplant.  Pastor Phil Bolerjack (Grace Pointe Community Church) and Pastor Kevin Hardy (Crossroads Church) are at the hospital along with the family as I write this note.  PLEASE share this prayer request if you would.  Tom needs a divine intervention.
Tom & Karen Gary are former missionaries to the Middle East, including Turkey. They returned a few years ago because of Tom’s cancer. He recently had a bone marrow transplant.
Thank you!
