Poppies
Dear Family and Friends:
Welcomed in the family of Rebecca Kalmach.  Mom, Jennifer Pela, and sisters Allison and Ashley will be staying with us.  Ms. Rebecca is on full life support in the ICU at Sacred Heart Hospital.  According to mom, she has several facial fractures and severe brain trauma.  Rebecca’s dad lives here in town.  Mom and her sisters are from Louisiana.  The entire family asks for prayers.
Mr. Melvin Merritt was able to transfer back to Brewton, AL to a re-hab/nursing home close to his home.  Elizabeth Rose, his daughter, thanks everyone for all of those prayers but asks us to continue to pray for him as his left side is immobile from his recent stroke.  His speech is doing great.  His spirits are great.  God has a plan!
We need to continue to pray for Jo Ann Williams from Ft. Walton, FL.  Daughter, Becky is in from Connecticut. Mom is recovering from lung surgery and prolonged ventilator therapy.  She has a tracheotomy.
Heard from Kelly Kachelle.  Husband, Larry is doing a little better each day at Shepherd’s Rehab in Atlanta, GA.  His speech is improving as is his walking.  Kelly NEVER forgets in her messages to thank God for EVERY day.  Larry has come such a long way from nearly a year ago.
Love, Always in His Name!

New House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard and Prayer Up Dates!

Dear Family and Friends:
Today we welcomed in the daughters of JoAnn Williams from Ft. Walton, FL.  According daughter, Brenda Frost, mom had a section of her lung removed for cancer, required prolonged ventilator support and now has a tracheotomy.  She is at Select Specialty Hospital for further ventilator support.  Brenda is from Connecticut.
Per Elizabeth Rose, her dad is doing well at Select Specialty hospital too recovering from his stroke now 4 weeks ago.  Marvin Merritt is his name.  Elizabeth has served our U.S. Army for 30 years.  She only gets to come on the weekends she is not on duty.  Otherwise, her aunt and other brother, Marty is here to be with dad.
Per Kelly Kachelle, Larry is continuing to progress at Shepherd’s Rehab in Atlanta, GA.  He is feeding himself, walking again with assistance, and using the correct words with his conversation.  Larry has come a VERY long way!.  Kelly never forgets to praise God for every step of his progress.
A very big praise report:  Our wonderful board of directors for Martha’s Vineyard met with the I.D. Group for our final “Brand On Us” meeting yesterday.  We felt like we put our very best “foot” forward in yesterday’s meeting.  The I.D. Group will have their last interview next Friday.  We will find out who is the winner of this public relations grant on February 28.  Dennis and I are so grateful to our wonderful board of directors.  They took time out from all of their busy work schedules to meet for the interview.  We are SO blessed to have this strong group of Christians that believe in this ministry.  We cannot begin to thank them enough.
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Updates here at Martha’s Vineyard

Dear Family and Friends:
Had a wonderful visit with Marvin Merritt at Select Specialty hospital.  He is recovering from two strokes now 3 weeks ago.  His family has been taking turns staying with him during the day.  He is now talking and can move his right side!  The left side is still very sluggish from the stroke effects according to his family.  He told me he is tired of sitting!  Wants to get moving.  Please continue to pray for him and his family.
Heard from Kelly Kachele.  Husband, Larry had his best week yet!  Recovering from an horrific motorcycle accident last March, Larry has been at Shepherd’s Rehab since August, 2016.  He passed his “swallow” test and was able to eat beef mac and cheese for the first time in a very long time! Woo hoo!  Keep those prayers coming!  God is NOT done yet with this guy.
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Update and Another Sad passing here at Martha’s Vineyard

Fleurs Sauvages
Dear Family and Friends:
This has been hard week already.  Earlier today got to spend a little time with Marvin Merritt.  Mr. Merritt had a stroke a couple of weeks ago.  His sister is looking after him during the day.  Marvin is doing very well!  Told me he loves visitors and appreciates all of those prayers out there.  Ms. Merritt, his sister said he is starting to move the right side of his body.  The left side is still affected by the second stroke he sustained.  Keep those prayers coming!
Last night, Heaven gained another soldier.  Dean Williams quietly and peacefully went Home.  Becky, his wife said he was SO ready.  Sons, Corey and Phillip were there at home to help mom.  Dean will be laid to rest at Barrancus National Cemetery.  Dean was retired Air Force.  We rejoice with him, as we grieve with Becky and their sons and family.  Blessings, our friend, Dean.
If you have  been watching the news, both locally and nationally, you have seen the reports about a couple that had appeared to have gone on a killing spree.  They started in Milton, FL. Two young ladies were killed.  Friday morning, February 3, Peggy Broz was going home after her shift at Baptist hospital.  She was allegedly followed by Mr. Boyette and Ms. Rice.  Peggy was shot and died in her driveway as this couple stole her car.
I had the distinct pleasure to work with Ms. Peggy during my time at Baptist hospital.  I admired her strong work ethics, and caring attitude with her patients.  She loved the Lord.  Loved her husband and children, and was very active in her church and youth group as a leader.  Peggy had served in the U.S. Navy.
Yes, Heaven gained yet another soldier.
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Updates from Martha’s Vineyard

Dear Family and Friends:
Melvin Merritt was moved yesterday from Baptist Hospital to Select Specialty hospital.  He is still recovering from his stroke January 16.  According to his daughter, Elizabeth, he has a very long way to recovery.  Melvin’s sister is staying with him as much as possible.  Elizabeth and family come Jackson, AL as often as possible to see him.  Mr. Merritt and his immediate family are from the Brewton, AL area.
Mr. Anthony Louveau went home to the Lord this past Wednesday.  Sisters Barbara and Becky, along with a grand-daughter and nephew stayed with us while final arrangements were made.  They left yesterday.  According to his family he knew he was going to Heaven and had everything written out for his family with his last wishes.  What a blessing to know that peace!
Prayer updates:  Dean Williams continues to have in-home hospice care in Crestview, FL.  Becky, his wife and sons are doing well taking shifts and lots of time with him. Dean is at peace with his decision to stay home.
Larry Kachele is doing better at the Shepherd’s Center in Atlanta, GA.  Now out of the ICU, he is back in rehabilitation from his motorcycle accident last year.  He is also back in speech, and occupational therapy.  He has been there since August, 2016.
Thank you all for the continued prayers through our grant process.  We are in the final round!  Interviews and meetings are to occur in the next two weeks.  We are excited to make this final cut.
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer update and condolence

Plume
Dear Family and Friends:
It is with deep sadness that we share with you all that U.S. Navy I.T. Stephen Weaver passed away Sunday morning at the University of Alabama Medical Center.  According to mom and dad, Stephen did appear to be stable Friday.  Then late Saturday afternoon, he developed a bleed in his right lung.  Because he was on the heart-lung bypass, E.C.M.O., he was also on blood thinners.  The doctors attempted to back down on the blood thinners.  He had a couple of clots in his right lung that they felt they were able to get out via a bronchoscopy.  His condition deteriorated and the developed a massive air leak (pneumothorax).  His heart stopped.
Stephen  Weaver was just 30 years old.  He leaves behind mom, Merridyth and the only dad he has ever known, John Falgout. He has an older brother, Clint also.  He has been in the Navy since 2009.  Loved the Navy.  Loved what he did with computer I.T. work.  Mom shared with me that he loved life, and the Lord too.  He will be missed.
I am including pictures mom sent me.  Christmas day at Pensacola Beach with his girl friend.  Early last year when on a deployment in Vietnam, and his graduation picture from boot camp.
Please be in prayer with this family as they sort through this terrible tragedy.  If you want, you can send cards and notes to his parents.  I am sure they would appreciate them.

Prayer Updates and New House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard of Pensacola!

Polyglot Thanks
Dear Family and Friends:
We have much to be thankful for!
Received word from Merridyth, Stephen Weaver’s mom in Birmingham, AL.  Stephen is doing a little better by the end of this week.  He did receive a tracheotomy Thursday.  This will allow him to breath a lot easier on the ventilator and allow care of the secretions his lungs constantly produce.  He remains on the heart-lung bypass, ECMO.  But, his oxygen % is down to 50%.  This is great!  Now that the spine has been stabilized, and his right shoulder has been “pinned”, we wait to be physically and mentally healed.  We are in constant prayer for Stephen and his severed spinal cord.  We have to wait on what does heal from this surgery.  God’s timing here!
Dean Williams did get to go home with hospice care.  He has a great attitude according to Becky, his wife.  There appears a peace about him she told me.  When he feels like eating, he eats.  And, asks for his favorite foods!  Dean is truly enjoying life now!
Marvin Merritt is still at Baptist Hospital with unfortunately no further improvements from his stroke two weeks ago according to daughter, Elizabeth Rose.  Marvin had a fairly severe head bleed/stroke.  Please continue to pray for him and his family.
Welcomed in today the family of Anthony Louveau.  Just 68 years young, his sisters Becky Wood and Barbara Louveau are here from Peoria, IL to spend more than likely a few last days with their brother.  According to his sisters, Anthony has lung cancer that has spread through-out his body.  A Navy veteran.  He is in the SINU at Baptist Hospital. Just sweet, sweet, sisters.
We had our second “round” with the oral/question presentation for our grant this past Friday.  Thank you all for all of those prayers!  Round “3” is coming in about 10 days.  Final round.  We are trying our best!
