Delphine Nurse
Delphine has been diagnosed with breast cancer and is to have a lumpectomy on 23rd April.  She expects to be in hospital overnight. She asks us to pray about the emotional and practical as well as the physical aspects of the situation for herself and also for her house-mate Jackie.

Delphine asks that she “might sense the presence of Jesus during the operation” and  “to behave towards the staff in a Christlike way, that she might show them the love of Jesus and they might see Jesus in her”.  Pray for Delphine to stay free of colds etc in order that the operation can go ahead

Des Cole
We have received this update -“Des has been diagnosed with both prostate and colon cancer. He will have an operation for the colon cancer at the QE on Wednesday 22nd April. We’d appreciate a good outcome and clear diagnosis so we have the best treatment plan going forward. And we really hope the cancer is localised and therefore curable.”

Lesley Osborn

Update – After three months in QEHB, Lesley is now in Moseley Hall Hospital rehab unit.  Pray for her continued recovery.
