Please pray

My sister and brother-in-law, Matt and Deanna, have been ministering for years at their local church with Pastor Jeff and his wife Karen. Jeff and Karen (and Matt and Deanna) really need your prayers. Jeff is in the midst of kindney failure, and Matt is donating one of his kidneys to him. The surgery is scheduled for May 8,  but may have to be moved up to May 1 because Jeff’s condition is deteriorating.  Please pray that he would make it.  I understand that the worse he gets, the surgery becomes more difficult.

Even worse, Karen was diagnosed several months ago with metastasized lung cancer. It’s the “we can’t really do anything, but will try to keep you alive as long as possible” kind. They have children who are I believe young teenager/pre-teen age. Because Karen’s medications are having difficult side effects, Deanna is going to be leading their church women’s retreat. Obviously, both Matt and Deanna are being stretched mightily as they love their friends. I am reminded of Jesus’ comment to Peter in Luke 22: “Satan wants to sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail.” The context is a bit different, but it seems like the enemy is on the attack against this couple and their ministry. Would you pray for them?
