Prayer request

Prayer request from Dave Johnstone

As you may have heard, Aileen’s mother is back in hospital near Falkirk. She had severe pain and actually called for an ambulance herself last Friday evening. Subsequent tests indicate that she has pancreatic cancer and the cancer may have also impacted her liver. Aileen’s mum is already a tiny, 92 year old lady so we suspect with such few reserves of strength the disease may have a rapid impact. Fortunately, the old girl is walking with the Lord and is completely unfazed by this diagnosis. Aileen is travelling down next Tuesday to prepare her mum’s house for her return. We plan to bring her bed downstairs to what is now the dining room where she can see out into the garden. I think she will like spending her time looking out and remembering her children and grandchildren who had such fun there over the past 30 odd years.

Can I ask that you request the church in Aberdeen and Portlethen to pray for our family at this time – that we would witness the Peace that only God can provide as we go through this difficult period.
