6/28 Update

Calling all prayer warriors!

The last week has been an amazing week of God blessing Dave and Ginnie. They had all their kids with them for Father's Day and had some of their best friends come stay with them a couple of days. (Thank you Burkett's!)

Dave's shoulder has been healing rapidly which has made his rehab much more effective.

Now on to the PRAYER REQUESTS...

Dave and Ginnie have been told today the Medicare has made the decision that they are being released from TrustPoint on Wednesday. Now, under normal circumstances this would be great news because they are so home sick! But Dave, Ginnie, their PT, and even their doctors all agree that Dave is not ready to go home yet. So.... We will appeal to Medicare tomorrow (tuesday) so we need everyone praying and if anyone is up to it and feels led to do so, fasting. We want to specifically pray that we have favor with Medicare and that Dave will be able to stay longer and work with his physical therapist longer. Now that his shoulder and ribs are healing he is making so much more progress and we don't want the momentum to stop.

We also ask that everyone prays for all of Dave and Ginnies decisions. There is a lot of decisions to be made and sometimes this can be frustrating and scary. Some of the decisions that have to be made are ..what changes to their home need to be made...what vehicle do they need for transportation...will they go straight to Clovis to their home when they are released from TrustPoint...

As you can see there is a lot. It's so good to know that when any of the saints are in need that the Body of Christ goes into action! God has ALL answers. HE IS OUR ANSWER! 1 Peter 5 talks about this very thing....if we have anxieties, cares, we are to cast (throw or dump) them on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!! Why does He want us to do this??? BECAUSE HE CARES FOR US!! He cares about what happens in Dave and Ginnie's life, down to the minor details.

Again...thank you for your prayers!! Dave and Ginnie loves all of you and thanks you all for going to God on their behalf.

I will do my best to update everyone as we move forward over the next couple of days.

(Also...I would like to encourage everyone that if God gives you any scriptures, specific words, words of encouragement, words of prophecy, please reply to this..remember..God uses His Body (us) to love and encourage one another)

Thank you so much....


  1. Praying this prayer specifically for you all from Phil 4:13 which I am sure you have memorized. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." and Eph. 3:20 "to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think." Brent and I are praying this for you. Our Lord and Savior Jesus will do more than you can ever imagine. Pam & Brent

  2. I read Psalm 30 this morning and thought of you, Dave and Ginnie. Check it out!
