Margaret Ball (mother of Sarah Ball)

Ripa and Roozbeh (members of St Mark’s, Smethwick)
Update from Jeremy Thompson: “Ripa had surgery earlier in November and was discharged from the QE a few days later. However, due to further problems she is now back in the QE and the long term prognosis is still not good. She needs a miracle. On top of this, Roozbeh has to attend an appeal hearing on their asylum application on Monday 23rd November at the Immigration Court in Sheldon. Please pray for healing for Ripa and that their case would be dealt with compassionately by the Immigration Judge.”
