This is an update on Ian Boyne’s current health condition. I received a call from Chris Hendrix a deacon in the Kingston Jamaica church, informing me that yesterday Ian left services early and admitted himself into the hospital. He claimed he was feeling some heart burn only to be diagnosed as having a heart attack. since then over the last 12-15 hours he has had 3 additional heart attacks––a total of 4. He presently is in ICU in very serious condition. the family has been called to the hospital this morning––12-3-17..

Please keep Ian and the family in your prayers and pass the word so we can get him on our prayer list. As we gain more information we will pass it on.



Please keep George Ransdell in our prayers. George formally attended the Bath, Ohio congregation for years and has since moved to Florida about 10 years ago. 

The following  prayer Request is from Morgan Pinkerman, Elder, CGI, Auburndale, FL Congregation.

Dear Family,

I have just gotten off the phone with our dear brother George Ransdell. George was taken to the hospital today due to unremitting nausea and vomiting. He has been suffering from this for sometime as you may know, but his symptoms were much worse today. At this time after initial work-up they believe it is possible George had a mild heart attack, as his cardiac enzymes are elevated. Of course they also confirmed that this could also be the result of the strain of the unremitting vomiting or due to his poor renal (kidney) functioning. The kidney problem is what is very likely causing the vomiting in the first place.Our brother needs our urgent prayers to our Heavenly Father at this time for his healing and that he has not had another heart attack. Also for the restoration of his kidney function and that perhaps his kidney doctor will agree that it at last time to get him on dialysis.I will keep you updated on his condition as I become aware.



Bronson’s 7 year old grandson, Nathan, is now officially in remission and has returned back to school.The family wants to thank all of us for their prayers and expressed concern over this very difficult time and so many life threatening events. 


Dianna is doing much better now that she has returned home. She is gaining weight and is now up to about 87 lbs. She’s looking and feeling much better. She’s up and around, cooking and going to the store. So, things are looking good for now. She and her family still need our prayers as they continue to work through the issues facing them in this caregiving situation. 


Carley’s friend Diane, who attends the UCG, is still struggling with her rare type of cancer and is now having difficulty with the Chemo treatment. Please continue to keep  her in your prayers as her body goes through the adjustment it needs to accept these treatments she has chosen to use. The doctors are trying to shrink the tumor so they can remove it. At present, it’s too large. Pray the tumor will respond to these treatments and begin to shrink. Pray that God will afford her success to be healed from this cancer.


Wayne continues to struggle with some new health issues and requests your continued prayers on his behalf. They are much appreciated.


Wynn continues to make good progress in his recovery. His ophthalmologist looked at Wynn’s eye and confirmed the swelling has diminished a good deal and that his vision is virtually back to normal. The double vision has disappeared and is good. Wynn is scheduled now for an MRI by a neurologist and possibly a CT angiogram. This will help him to see how everything is healing. He will also be looking for anything that may be attributed to the “cause” of his two black outs Wynn has experienced over the last couple of months. The appointment is scheduled for today, November 27th. Please pray all will go well and they will be able to find the cause of this, or that God has repaired it and they won’t find anything. Wynn is expected to return back to work on a limited basis along with instructions about working his way back to resuming his other regular activities. 

All the calls, emails, cards and prayers is much appreciated and the family asks you continue to keep him in those prayers.


From Doug Johnson, COGWA pastor, Cleveland, OH; Meadville, PA:

Renee Williams and her husband, Ray, members of the Cleveland, Ohio, congregation, request your prayers.Renee has been in the hospital for over two weeks, battling a very serious infection in her foot, with two surgeries required so far. The situation is complicated by her diabetic condition. Following the second surgery Nov. 20 (a skin graft to close the wound), her doctors are pleased that there appears to be no further infection, but the minimal circulation levels in her foot give them concern.In addition, Renee learned just days before being admitted to the hospital that she also is dealing with breast cancer. They would very much appreciate the prayers of their Church family, and thank you all in advance.
