Please Pray

Some of you are aware that we learned on Friday that Dennis has a brain tumor. He will have it removed on Monday. We will post uodates here.

What we know at this point is that he has a tumor. We will learn much more after surgery.

Dennis stared to have some trouble recalling words a few weeks ago so he went in to see the doctor. An MRI was done and found this problem.

We covet your prayers as we walk down this path. We are trusting our heavenly father to walk along with us and that He loves us. Please pray that He will be glorified in all of this.

Psalm 42 was shared with us today by our friend Nancy. We understand David's heart as he wrote this Psalm.


  1. we are praying for you, Dennis and your darling daughter.

  2. Ellen,

    We are praying for Dennis and your entire family. We met you in the Chicago airport on our way to China in February. May God hold your hands through this journey.

    In Him,

  3. Ellen,

    We are praying wholeheartedly for Dennis and your happy family.

  4. There is an old Chinese saying:"Hao ren you hao bao" which means "Kind people will be rewarded fruitfully. Dennis, you are such a nice and sweet person who always offers help to others that you will be rewarded kindly. May God bless you.

    Don't be scared, Ellen, the Lord is always with you and gives you strength.

    Here is a little poem that I read on the net. I copy it for you:

    I said a prayer for you today
    And know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart
    Although He spoke no word!

    I didn't ask for wealth or fame
    (I knew you wouldn't mind).
    I asked him to send treasures
    Of a far more lasting kind!

    I asked that He be near you
    At the start of each new day;
    To grant you health and blessings
    And friends to share your way!

    I asked for happiness for you
    In all things great and small.
    But it was for His loving care
    I prayed the most of all!

    We love you, Dennis, Ellen and Brooke.
