I have a MAJOR prayer request.

I have some friends in Wisconsin that I have not spoken with for a while. Something told me to call them yesterday.

I found out that my friend's (Vicki) husband (Joe) has had cancer that they cleared a couple of years back ( I already knew that part) but it seems that the cancer has come back (this is the part that I did not know) and they have given him 6 month to a year to live. Every time I think of this the tears come. I have not been back to Wisconsin since I left 7 years ago and I miss them so much, even more now.

They have 2 grown children and 7 grandchildren.

I also found out the their oldest daughter has filed for divorce from her husband. A couple of months back she found out that her husband has been molesting their 9 year old daughter. The son-of-a-bitch is scheduled for court the latter part of this month. Lets hope they hang the bastard!

They also have 3 boys and they think that he has done some things to the boys also but the boys are not talking. Their daughter finally told her mom but asked that she not say anything because the dad told her that he would kill her if she told and of coarse being a little girl, she believed him. BASTARD!!

And on another note, my dear friend from Minnesota has lost her mother in law. She passed away yesterday morning so please be in prayer for her also.

I know with all of my heart that the power of prayer works. I just want him to spend a little more time with his family. He is the bread winner, he is their rock and I just don't know what they will do without him.

Thanks for listening, and reading. It was a very sad day.

Oh my what a terrible time for your friends, I'll be praying for all of them! I can't fathom what I just read, I can't imagine being in any of their situations. My heart hurts just imagining it.

Prayers and positive thoughts headed to Wisconsin and to you...
