David & Marcia Jones - MTW

David has pancreatic cancer which has spread to his liver and is non curable. They arrived back in the US last week, to see what treatments are available and to see their kids and grandkids.

They take comfort that David is the beloved child of a merciful powerful heavenly Father, redeemed and given eternal life by his beloved Savior Jesus, and empowered and strengthened every moment by the Holy Spirit, the greatest Comforter. And to top it all off, as David arrived in the States, his eleventh grandchild was born.  Elias Kieran Jones, 7 lbs, 7ozs.

  • Pray for: strength, guidance, wisdom and sleep as David & Marcia walk through the next few days.
  • Pray for the dear Persians we left behind, that our leaving will bind their hearts even more to Jesus and to the wise, and loving church members who will continue to serve them.
  • Pray for our children as they come here from various far away places, and for precious time with them and our grandchildren.
  • Pray for miraculous healing. The elders in West Africa prayed for David, the elders in our home church prayed for him, and the elders in Bethan’s church prayed for him. They ask for healing but also say with the fellow saints in Daniel 3:18 , “and if not, He is still good.”

“The battle’s fierce, but the victory’s won! God shall supply all that you need. Yes, as your days your strength shall be. Amen.”

John Fawcett, 1782 Afflicted Saint, to Christ Draw Near.
