NEW ENTRIES on Tuesday 24th December  

Sheila Brown
Sadly we report that Sheila has passed away.  Please pray for her sister and all the family.
Sheila had the planned heart bypass operation on Monday 23rd December but did not recover.  Brian and Val Philp have told us that:  “It was discovered that her heart was in a worse state than they (the doctors)  thought and they did five bypass operations but her heart stopped.  They tried until 9.00pm to get things going again but failed.  There will be a coroner’s report so the funeral will be delayed some time.”

Pam Kimmins
Pray for Pam following a leg operation on Monday 23rd December. She will be unable to use her leg for two weeks over Christmas and New Year. Pray for good recovery for Pam; pray also for Bob and for those looking after her.

Pray for the family, especially Anne de Reybekil, and friends of Peta who passed away on Wednesday 18th December.

Anne is in Pakistan with Interserve and was not at home for her mother’s passing. Please pray for her as she comes home after Christmas and the family prepare for the funeral on 10th January in Lincolnshire.
