Dear and Special Prayer Warriors:

It was 28 years ago when old Missionary Gary met Rev. Dan Heuer and his dear family at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Davenport, Nebraska. Dan's wife, Deb, was just ready to deliver their son and I could tell immediately that this family was truly NOT NORMAL! They were special!

The years have passed so quickly and our friendship has grown and grown over the years! They are truly "part of my real family"!!! This morning I received a call from Deb, that Pastor Heuer is in the hospital dealing with fluid on his lungs from the impact of the cancer that is attacking his body.

The Heuer family lives in Fremont, Nebraska and we would ask each of you dear prayer warriors to pray for Pastor Heuer and his dear family in the days that lie ahead, that God's will might be done and that they might receive the peace and comfort that can only come from the hand of our Heavenly Father.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

I have been receiving chemo treatments for about a year and over the last couple months my immunity levels have been reduced.

I was supposed to start another round of chemo today but they decided to wait a week. I have an appointment with my hematologist on the 4th of April. Asking for prayers that this extra recovery week shows some signs of improvement in my labs and we can make some adjustments so the chemo does its job and immunity levels stablize or improve.
