Prayer Requests –

Please pray for my husband, Pastor David Dever. He is pastor of Landmark Missionary Baptist Church in Hermiston, OR.

On Wednesday, August 20th, he received a diagnosis of a rare, agressive Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor which is an aggressive form of a sarcoma. It is located in the quad muscle of his left leg and is pretty much the entire muscle.

They will be treating him aggressively in Portland, OR. We head back there for tests and his port placement Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Thankfully, there are hotels in the city who donate rooms to cancer patients and their caregivers. Although we have a couple of homes that are open to us from brothers and sisters in Christ, which I will be thankfully utilizing.

We are waiting for approval to begin taking a chemo therapy pill. Two weeks after beginning the pill, he will go back for his first of 6 in-hospital chemo treatments (3-4 days in hospital each time) with radiation happening once or twice. After the first set of 3 treatments he will have the tumor removed followed by 3 more chemo treatments. It will take 6-8 months to complete the treatment with years of follow-up. He will be able to walk after the surgery with some therapy and possibly with a cane for stability.

His spirits are good, and he is hoping to continue working his secular job throughout the treatment, but that will depend on how he handles the chemotherapy.

Would appreciate your prayers for him, myself, our 16-year old son (Josh) and our church family, as we walk this together.

If you would like to send encouraging cards or letters, please feel free to do so. Our address is: Bro. David Dever, 822 S Hwy 395 PMB153, Hermiston, OR 97838.

Thank you in advance for your prayers. God is in control, and we are seeking His strength and peace.

Thanks,
Debbie Dever

Miscellaneous Requests –

Camp Need!

The Branch (Landmark Missionary Baptist Encampment) in Dry Branch, GA is a camp used by the churches of GA, SC and NC as well as sporadically by churches in other states for Family, Kids and Teen camp as well as a few retreats/meetings. In the past the camp has borrowed projection/sound equipment for use during their events but feels led to establish their own to keep down at the camp. Specifically they are trying to first come up with a multi-channel sound mixing board and associated equipment as well as a projector with the intent later of adding speakers/microphones/etc. The camp has already begun allotting some funds toward this goal but is well short of the needed amount. Would you please pray and consider any help you could provide in this matter? Any questions can be directed to Pastor John Friederich, Eastern Landmark Missionary Baptist Church at friederj@pbtcomm.net Any help that you may feel led to provide can be sent to Pastor Mark Thorton, Lakewood Baptist Church, 9287 Colerain Road, St. Marys, GA, 31558. Thanks and God Bless!
