Jerry Young Gets Some Bad News
Dr. Jerry Young, former pastor at Lititz, Penna., and most recently ministry director for the Association of Grace Brethren Ministers, has been battling a series of serious health problems the last several years. He and his wife, Loreen, live in Tucson, Arizona, and this latest post from Loreen on Jerry's Caring Bridge website is cause for fervent prayer:
Jerry had the PET scan this afternoon and we got the worst news. The cancer in now in the liver so that is why he has been feeling so terrible the past two weeks. Hospice is coming here tomorrow to interview us.
He does not want any surgery, chemo or any other measures taken, so as before, it is all in God's hands.
The good news is that his mom is still hanging in there and we have sold the truck and RV to dear friends in Phoenix, John and Martha Schumacher, so that is an answer to prayer. Glad I have a least a couple of praises as it seems like every journal entry is negative so I am glad to have these couple of praises.
Just keep praying for both of us as I know you angels already are doing. This had been pretty crushing for me. Well, for both of us, but he took it much better than I did today. God bless you dear ones.
