Felix Vega Lopez, our active duty Navy guy is back in town with his family staying with Penny Cavender.  Felix is back for more doctor’s appointments.  Looking at further surgery on that right knee.  BUT, the good news is that the U.S. Navy wants to keep Felix!  He is so excited to remain in the U.S. Navy!  This is a very big prayer answered.  Keep praying for a speedy recovery for him.  Thanks so much Penny for your help too!
Richard Lieweke and his wife, Mary are slowly getting better.  Mary is at Solaris Rehabilitation center. I spoke to her and she said the hardest part about any exercise is the fact she cannot put any weight on the broken right leg.  Plus with multiple broken ribs, it hurts to just breathe.  Richard was able to replace his car.  He goes to multiple doctors here as a follow up to his recovery too.  Mary is 81 years young, and Richard is 83.  Please continue to pray for both of them .  Just a lovely couple from southern Illinois.
Welcomed in today Marybeth Schillace and her adorable 16 year old daughter, Melissa.  Marybeth’s other two adult children will be joining her as they all are very concerned about Rose Amerman, Marybeth’s mother who underwent a quadruple heart bypass, and right leg amputation above the knee.  Ouch!  Rose, who is widowed was staying with a friend when her health suddenly deteriorated two weeks ago.  After a week in the Ft. Walton Center, she was transferred to Select Hospital here in Pensacola.  Marybeth and Melissa needed a place close to Select.  Melissa is such a sweet heart.  A special needs child with down’s syndrome, she is trying hard to understand everything that has happened to her Grandma.  They are from the Fingerlakes Region of upstate NY.
Continue to pray for Trevor Bazzel too.  He is on the “schedule” to move to Houston, TX possibly next week.  According to mom, Lisa, he is making good progress at the stroke rehab at West Florida Rehabilitation center.  His speech is improving more each day.  He is slowly improving on the walking and right sided movement.
We are full, we are busy, but God is in control!
Love, Always in His Name!

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

Dear Family and Friends:

We welcomed in yesterday Richard Leiweke. Both he and his wife, Mary M. Leiweke were traveling through Pensacola this past week when, as Richard told me, he inadvertently missed the turn signal and turned in front of a car on Airport Street. His wife has a broken leg, several broken ribs. They were both hospitalized Richard was released. Mary is now at a local rehab, Solaris, for further rehabilitation. They will be with us for at least a couple more weeks before they can travel back to Illinois. Per Richard, at 83 he made a terrible mistake and he is so sorry that his wife took the brunt of the accident. Please be in prayer for this sweet couple as Mary continues to heal.

Trevor Bazzel is doing great at West Florida’s stroke rehab! Now walking 60 feet, and with the help of some electronic therapy, actually biked 2 1/2 miles! His mom, Lisa is so proud of him. He is supposed to be transferred to Texas this week. Keep those prayers coming!

Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Up Dates on Our Martha’s Vineyard House Guests

Dear Family and Friends:
Baptist Hospital was not ready to let Trevor Bazzell go yet.  He is the 20 year old active duty Navy service person that had a fairly moderate stroke last week.  He is starting to speak some, and slowly getting some right side movement.  Lisa Maddux, his mom, grandparents, and uncle are all with us still.  They are hoping that sometime this next week to be able to move Trevor to Houston, TX to a stroke rehabilitation center.  Keep him and his family in prayer.
Felix Vega-Lopez will be back this week for more appointments and possible surgery on the right knee.  Felix is still recovering from his accident now about 2 months ago where he was struck while riding his “long-board”, skate board.  Felix has had his cervical fusion done on his neck.  He and his family stay with Penny Cavender when they come into town.  Thanks again so much Penny!
Thank you “Hire the Choir” for all the wonderful work you do to help make the Vineyard beautiful.  They have been doing extensive yard work here.  Thank you again Summit Landscaping for the pine straw donations!  The WHIM (Women’s Hands In Ministry) came last week end and planted all our annual flowers.  Pictures to come! They always do such beautiful work!!!
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Update and New House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard

Dear Family and Friends:
There is no easy way to say this.  Even though Kolton Hundersmarck was showing a small improvement, his nuclear brain stress test today showed “brain death” today at 1300 (1 pm) our time.  His parents, family, and girl friend, Lauren, are beyond devastated. Kolton is to be a total organ donor.  So far, nine people are going to receive organs that will be life saving for these people.  Organ procurement is to occur in the next 24 to 72 hours. Kolton’s brother, Kasey will serve as his honor guard back to Idaho.  He proudly serves in U.S. Army.  Kolton was an active Air Force member of our armed forces.  Kolton leaves behind five brothers.  The oldest is 28.  The youngest is 8 years old.  Please be in prayer for this entire family as they proceed through the next few days. Mom and dad, Meredith and Aaron, will leave here Wednesday.  Kasey stays to escort his brother’s body when the procurement is done, and final preparations are completed.
We also welcomed in today the family of Trevor Bazzel.  U.S. Navy, active duty computer specialist.  He collapsed during a drill, and has according to his family suffered a stroke at the age of 20 years old this past Friday.  He is actually starting to move his right side which was totally paralyzed.  Grandmother Mary McDonald, uncle James Buckley, and mom, Lisa Bazzel are with us now.  As soon as Trevor stabilizes, the plan is to move him to Houston, TX to a major stroke rehabilitation center.  Please be in prayer for Trevor and his family.
Have an update on Pastor Ronnie Tyree.  His overall condition has not changed.  He is still on full life support.  The doctors are concerned he has viral meningitis.  His daughter, Laura Oliver, and son are still with him in Birmingham. AL at U.A.B. medical center.  He is maintaining his oxygen levels a little better according to Laura.  Please continue to pray for him and his family.
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Update on Martha’s Vineyard House Guests

Dear Family and Friends:
Met with Kolton Hundersmarck’s family early this morning in the SICU at Baptist Hospital.  According to mom, Meredith, Kolton had a very scary night.  His ICP (Intercranial Pressure) went very high.  The staff at Baptist was able to get it down to near normal.  According to mom too, his EEG (brain wave activity test) yesterday did show some brain activity.  Kolton, had sustained severe head trauma from a jeep accident. He is stationed in the Air Force, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fort Walton, FL. Tonight, per mom, is 48 hours since the accident occurred and the doctors are going to start slowly weaning Kolton off all sedation.  This is a really big step prayer partners.  Will Kolton wake up? We have said that he is in God’s Hands right now.  His overall condition is very critical.  Please be in prayer for this young man, his mom and dad, brother, Kasey who also serves in the U.S. Army, his fiance’, and a high school friend who accompanied mom here initially.  Kolton also has two other brothers.
Buna May Mency was discharged today from Life Care Center.  Dorothy Miller, her daughter is taking her home on full-time hospice care.  Please continue to pray for Dorothy and the hospice team as they care for Ms. Buna May.  This is going to be a very big task for Dorothy.  She has told me she feels she has got to try to keep “momma” at home for now.
Felix Vega-Lopez did get to return home to central Florida to recover from his neck surgery C-1 fusion!  Now he has the right knee to be repaired at some later date.  Please be in prayer for this family as they come together to heal as one.
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Request for Our New House-Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard

Dear Family and Friends:
My ever-faithful volunteer, Marsha C. and I had just cleaned two rooms yesterday.  Felix Vega-Lopez and his family are still at Penny Cavender’s house recovering from his surgery last week.  Doing very well from what I have heard.
Received a call from Eglin Air force base today.  A couple of days ago, active duty, Airman, Colton Hundersmarck flipped his jeep.  Massive head injury plus other physical injuries.  He is in critical condition at Baptist Hospital, SICU.  Mom and Dad, Meredith & Aaron Hundersmarck, his brother who was deployed in Japan at the time of the accident, and Colton’s fiance’ is with us.  According to Aaron, Colton’s dad, just today he is doing some breathing on his own.  But, his inter-cranial pressure goes up and down too.  Of course, this young 24 year old soldier is on full life support.
Please be in reverent prayer for Colton and his family.  He is truly in God’s hands at this point.
Love, Always in His Name!
