Keep Friends & Neighbors in Your Prayers

There have been numerous studies over the years that have investigated whether the power of prayer works. Researchers like Dr. Elizabeth Targ in San Francisco selected practicing healers from a number of traditions Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Indian shamans and had them pray for 20 patients with advanced AIDS and compared their progress to a control group of 20 other AIDS patients. According to her, the prayed-for patients had fewer and less severe new illnesses, fewer doctor visits, fewer hospitalizations and were generally in better moods than those in the control group. "Prayer may be an effective adjunct to standard medical care," says cardiac researcher William Harris, Ph.D., who headed a study of cardiac patients at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. Harris concluded that the group receiving prayers fared 11% better than the group that didn't, a number considered statistically significant.

We'd like to believe that prayers do help, and here is a friend and neighbor who could use your prayers now.

Ruth Stoltzfus Needs Our Prayers

Ruth is Doing Well

Just talked with Ruth's husband, Bill. Ruth had surgery today in Ocala. The surgery was a success and Ruth is doing well. She will be in the hospital for several days and then will be coming home to recover. Ruth will need lots of rest and recovery time, but if you would like to send her a card, send it to:

 Ruth Stoltzfus
 862 Reed Terrace
 The Villages, FL 32162

We look forward to her speedy recovery. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Linda Martinie is asking for your prayers and good vibes for her friend, Ruth Stoltzfus. After many blood tests and a colonoscopy, it has been determined that Ruth has colon cancer. The very good news is that the cancer is contained! Ruth will be having surgery October 16th at Florida Hospital of Ocala (formerly Monroe Hospital). Just how much further treatment will be necessary will not be known until after the surgery. We are praying for a full recovery. In the meantime, she would appreciate your prayers.
