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.
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.
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.

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.
