Serving One Another

As needs arise within our church, we will communicate opportunities to serve one another through prayer and helping hands. Thanks for being the body of Christ!

  • Please pray for Kim Cadeau. Praise: From Kim after her latest follow up: “Both doctors were quite happy with the results from the embolization. They said that the larger lesions are less dense than before the treatments. I understood that the embolization would kill some of the tumors, but that was never the intent, instead it was to slow down the growth of the larger lesions which it was successful in doing. Another thing I didn’t realize was that the effect of the embolization on the tumors is ongoing, so the next scan could show even more success. The tumor on my stomach has shown no signs of growth so the plan is to leave it for now. The future plan is to monitor the growth by having MRIs every four months and CTs occasionally. The hope is that a new drug will be found that will cause the tumors to shrink. I will be informed of any new drug as it becomes available. For now it is simply wait and see. I will attend the GIST clinic in Washington in September. There may be an opportunity for me to have additional tests done there and allow me to find out even more about my type of cancer. Thanks everyone for your love and concern, it is much appreciated. I am doing really well overall. I’m almost back to regular health and hope to return to work soon. Despite my health situation I feel extremely blessed and realize that I have so much to be thankful for.”
  • Please pray for Karen Walton as she continues to recover. Please pray that her throat dilations will be successful in permanently widening the passageway so that she can swallow food, and return to a normal routine, including work.
  • Please pray for Ryan Nicholas’ father. Please continue to pray for Ryan’s dad’s health–for the long road to recovery and ensuing surgery. Thanks for your prayers.
  • Please pray for Angelina So’s travel and father’s health. Please pray for her time in Hong Kong with her father and for opportunities to share the gospel.
  • Please pray for Grace Kim’s travel and father’s health. Praise: From Grace: Good news! My father’s surgery to remove a large tumor (6kg) from his right thigh was successful. His recovery is going according to plan. Thank you for your prayers.” Request: The cancer did spread to his upper right thigh and some to the lungs. Please pray for continued treatment and healing.
  • Please pray for Joanne Baik’s health. Please continue to pray for Joanne Baik’s health. She sustained a grade 2/3 ankle sprain. She would appreciate prayers for quick recovery to minimize disruption to life.
  • Please pray for the July Love A Village Mission Trip. The ball is rolling for a team of eight members, including five from Trinity Grace. Please pray for team unity, preparation, and fundraising. More details to come. Thanks!

  • Words to Hide in Your Heart. If you don’t have a Scripture reading and meditating plan, why not start with these weekly words to hide in your heart below? Or consider following the New City Catechism (our church is following it each week for a year). Check it out by clicking here.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God…Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” John 3:16-18, 36

“For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.” Colossians 1:19-20

Grace and peace.
