Prayers appreciated for Camilla Dorothy. She is in the critical care unit of Valley General Hospital in Kent, Wash. She has two ruptured blood vessels in her brain, and in addition, has had a mild heart attack. She is very sick and needs immediate help from the hand of God. Please join me in praying that God strengthen her, relieve her pain, and heal her to health. JoAn and I would be lost without her, as would a host of other people including her three children, many grandchildren, and my 92-year-old mother. As many of you know, Camilla is the widow of Dr. Charles Dorothy. She is as fine a person and Christian as I've ever known. May God have mercy on her! Thank you for taking this request to our Great and Mighty Father in heaven.
