India Update – Prayer Requests 3/11/12

Here are some last minute prayer requests as we begin our classes here in Bangalore, India, Monday morning or Sunday evening your time.

  1. Stamina –  with a couple of teammates unable to be with us at the last minute, I will be speaking 12 of the next 13 days and about 40 times total. So I am claiming 2 Cor 12:9, which assures me that I am able to gain His strength and glorify Him in my weakness.
  2. Health – doing well, but schedule will be challenging.  Breathing is good.  I am down to only a 25% increase in steroids vs. 6 to 18 times the normal dosage  over the last month or two.  Long term my disease is in remission but the damage to the airways remains and the reduction of steroids takes months.
  3. Side Effects – two of the many side effects of massive steroids are being irritable and always hungry.  These lead to anger and gluttony.  Not good.  Pray that I will be kind to Davidene and those who serve us and be disciplined in eating.  After losing weight in January, the massive doses that I took negatively impacted my weight the last few weeks due to the cumulative effect. So pray for patience and discipline for me.  Davidene has been great.
  4. Finally,  pray for discernment to determine which leaders to spend the extra five minutes with or sit with at the many meals or be able to invest in the future.  I want to be on the lookout for the FEW key leaders and not to take too much time with the “hangers on”.  Jesus mastered that and I must continue to gain that wisdom in order to make some Lasting Investments here among these pastors and workplace leaders.

Your prayers today for Charlie, Perry, Chris, Davidene, and me are greatly appreciated.  May we glorify Him!

    Add Tom to your prayer list. His cancer has come back along with brain cancer. Meeting with neurologist in morning about removal of the brain cancer and then 6 months of chemo again on his lungs.
    I am praying for both you and Davidene.
