Frances James
Emma James reports “Good news, Frances has had the results of her MRI today [11/12/14] and the consultant seems happy with her progress. The soft tissue damage has recovered but there is still some fluid in the bone which might take time to settle completely. Thanks you for all your kind wishes and support. The prayers have been answered as much as we could have hoped.”

Reay Mackay (brother of Judith Mackay)
Judith reports “I would like to thank everyone for praying and enquiring how he is. Prayers are very much appreciated. Reay had 2 scans this week. He should have seen the oncologist next Thursday [11/12/14] but had a phone call on Friday to say the results of the scans are remarkable, the tumours have shrunk so much that they can hardly even see where they were, though there is scar tissue. He is having 2 more scans before Christmas to try and show some detail, but it seems likely that after another course of chemotherapy they will be able to operate on both liver and lungs. This is far more hopeful than anticipated so a big thank you to everyone who prayed.”


Doreen Goff
Pray for Doreen following a recent operation

Laurie Deimel

Monica Finnemore
Give thanks and pray for good recovery for Monica following her recent knee replacement surgery.

Lesley Osborn

Bernie Barber (sister-in-law of Ginny Cornish)
