Pray for Courtney (Terrie Peper's Daughter)

5/2/22 UPDATE: Courtney's speech has resolved but her balance remains unsteady. Her dr. will repeat another MRI in 4 months to evaluate the brain clots.

She awaits a dr. appointment Monday, May 9 with a cardiac surgeon to evaluate the best approach to fix a hole in her heart. She has fatigue and low blood pressure.

Thank you for your continued prayers.

------------------------------------------

(4/5/22): This past Saturday, Terrie Peper's daughter, Courtney (30 yrs. old) [this is the granddaughter of late EBC Members, Audrey and John Peper], was taken to Sentera Hospital in Va with arm and leg numbness. After much testing, it was discovered, that she had a mini-stroke.

As of today, Courtney is still in the hospital and has been moved to the Cardiac Floor.

The echo of her heart did not find any clots

but they did find a hole in the top of the atrium portion. She had an Echo esophagus scope yesterday with sedation

that went well and she tolerated it well.

Her cardiologist will discuss “patching“ this hole and all that involves. Courtney is still getting blood thinners as she still has clots in both sides of brain.

Please pray for Courtney's complete healing, and continued wisdom for her doctors and medical team.

Pray continued rest, strength and peace for Terrie, her mom, as they go through this time with her daughter.

CURRENT UPDATES ON 5/14/22

4/28/22 UPDATE:

Pat went back into AFib last evening around 11 pm. Her BP has been too low and she is very weak. She was to see an AFib specialist sometime today. They are also continuing to watch her gastric bleeding. Discharge has been pushed back to at least early next week.

---------------------------------------

4/27/22 EVENING UPDATE: PLEASE PRAY! Pat's heart rhythm has gone back into AFIB per the EKG that was just given to her. Pray the doctors can get this resolved quickly.

-------------------------------------------------------

4/27/22 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Pat is now in an Intermediate Care Room. Her sinus rhythms have finally returned to normal! PTL! She still has little appetite, so please pray that she will begin to eat more and that her health will continue to improve. The family wants to thank everyone for your continued prayer and support.

----------------------------------------------------------

4/25/22 UPDATE: Pat is doing a little better but is still having some spikes in her heart rate, although not for prolonged periods, as before. She will still spend a few more days in the hospital.

------------------------------------------------------

4/21/22 UPDATE: Pat's doctors were able to remove the balloon pump and many of her IVs last night. They are going to move her to a regular room when one becomes available. Please continue to pray for her comfort, healing of her wound sites, and the bruising and that Pat would regain clarity of thought.

-------------------------------------------------------

4/19/22 Pat has been admitted to Vidant Greenville ICU, following a heart catheterization earlier this evening. They put in a stent in the main LAD artery. Please pray, as during the procedure, there was some tearing during the balloon expansion into some smaller branches of the arteries. She is now on a balloon pump to help prevent chest pain. They hope to be able to remove this in a few days. Bill and their daughter Ann ask for additional prayer that this new stent will help give Pat much needed relief from her shortness of breath. Pastor Ben was able to call and speak to Ann and Bill and pray with them over the phone.

Pray for the Chobdar of India

Chobdar of India

Population: 28,500

Religion: Hinduism

The Chobdar live in Northern central India. In their villages and surrounding areas, anti-Christian vigilantes are sweeping through, burning Christian literature, attacking schools, and assaulting worshipers. In many cases, police and government officials are helping them. The very act of worship has become dangerous. For many Hindu extremists, these attacks are justified. To them, the possibility that an Indian would reject Hinduism for Christianity is a threat to their dream of a pure Hindu nation.

The Chobdar live in the midst of this turmoil. They go about their daily lives holding fast to their Hindu beliefs, placing their faith in a multitude of false gods, and living a hopeless life.

Pray with us for the believers in the area, that they would be protected from persecution and would be able to not only find the Chobdar people, but that many would come to faith in Christ.

Pray for the Perumkollar Peoples of India

Perumkollar of India

Population: 73,000

Religion: Hinduism

Today, the 73,000 Perumkollar who call India home are living in darkness. Their eyes are blinded to the truth and their ears are deafened to the gospel, not because of their own choosing, but because no one is going and telling them of the hope that can only be found in Jesus.

Generation after generation has lived and died, facing a Christ-less eternity because they have never been afforded the chance to know Christ.

In their daily lives, they work as day laborers using government approved self-employment programs. They are typically well educated. In spiritual matters, they are Hindu, worshiping a multitude of gods.

Join us in praying that the Perumkollar would soon come to know Jesus as the light of the world, not walking in the darkness, but having the light of life.

I have a fairly large lump(knot) that has developed in my left breast. It has been there for nearly a year, and I don't tell anyone about it. It has gotten larger. I am a 60 year old woman.

Pray for Courtney (Terrie Peper's Daughter)

This past Saturday, Terrie Peper's daughter, Courtney (30 yrs. old) [this is the granddaughter of late EBC Members, Audrey and John Peper], was taken to Sentera Hospital in Va with arm and leg numbness. After much testing, it was discovered, that she had a mini-stroke.

As of today, Courtney is still in the hospital and has been moved to the Cardiac Floor.

The echo of her heart did not find any clots

but they did find a hole in the top of the atrium portion. She had an Echo esophagus scope yesterday with sedation

that went well and she tolerated it well.

Her cardiologist will discuss “patching“ this hole and all that involves. Courtney is still getting blood thinners as she still has clots in both sides of brain.

Please pray for Courtney's complete healing, and continued wisdom for her doctors and medical team.

Pray continued rest, strength and peace for Terrie, her mom, as they go through this time with her daughter.

My uncle Larry Cox (80 years old) is in Fort Sanders Hospital in Knoxville,TN after suffering a stroke Saturday night.

The doctors believe he has had several mini strokes before this one. He can't walk or stand on his own, though he desperately wants to get up and go. Thankfully he can speak, communicate and is aware. He has a blood clot on the right side of his brain, they are unable to do surgery on it.

He had a watchman implanted in his heart two weeks ago which normally protects against a blood clot. With his atrial fibrillation, the watchman is not quite functioning and sealed. Therefore, they are going to give him medications which will help to thin his blood clot over the next 6 weeks.

He is finally able to eat foods and drink thickened liquids. A plan is being created for therapy, as soon as he is ready to begin. He is not the type of person just to sit down and not do anything. He has always been very active and outgoing person.

He was there for me and my sister and 2 brothers in helping raise us. Please pray that he will recover and be able to go back to church and remain active in his community.

Pray for the Hasalaru of India

Hasalaru of India

Population: 28,500

Religion: Islam

The Hasalaru are a tribal people who live in the south Indian state of Karnataka. In the past, they were hunters and gatherers of forest products. When tea and coffee plantations developed in southern India, the Hasalaru moved to work on the plantations. They are almost exclusively landless agricultural workers, laboring on land that grows coffee, tea, areca and betel nuts, rice and palm products.

As far as we know, all 28,500 Hasalaru subscribe to ethnic religions. They believe that spirits inhabit the objects of nature such as trees, rivers, mountains, and rocks. These spirits must be appeased with prayer, rituals and offerings or they might bring disaster upon the community.

As an impoverished tribal people, they have many needs, yet their greatest need still remains – the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. Pray for believers to reach the Hasalaru of India to share the truth of Jesus Christ with them, and that they will have ready and open hearts to believe and be saved!
