Prayer Request

Please pray for the fires in Colorado Springs to be contained.  Ryan had surgery yesterday and while he was there, the place where he was living was forced into a mandatory evacuation.  He will be released today and will be staying with a friend of a family member.  The fires are out of control and burning homes.  The Navigators have a retreat center there (Glen Eyrie) and have requested prayer as many of their buildings are in the path of the fire.

Also, my mom had to take my dad to ER in the middle of the night because he was in severe pain. Once there, they discovered his bladder was full of blood.  They were going to try to do a procedure on him this morning, but couldn't.  He has had prostate cancer for 14 years, and we know it can travel to the bladder, so of course we are worried.  We would so appreciate prayers.  We are very thankful that this didn't happen in Honduras.  He is supposed to return to the doctor on Tue., and hopefully we will know more then.

We are in the springs so please let me know if he needs anything. Not sure how long we will be in our home but we would love to help ease your worry. Absolutely heartbreaking and yes pray. A lot of people have lost everything but we are all so blessed that no one has been hurt.

Wow, lots of "stuff" going on. And, it's big, important and scary stuff. I will definitely pray for Ryan and for your Daddy. I know how much you love both of them. I saw your special love for your Dad, in your Mission trip posts. I really enjoyed those posts and the beautiful photos you took! I hope you are back to your own time by now. Hugs to all! ~ Jo
