Sanghar - Unreached/Unengaged People Group

Please pray for the Sanghar, numbering 39,000 as of 2021. They are an unengaged, and unreached people group who are a nomadic people, living on the western coast of India in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Karnataka.

They are farmers, raising cattle as their main source of income.

They practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Although audio, visual, and written Bible resources are available in Marathi, their spoken language, they remain unreached with the truth of the gospel.

Pray that believers will find a way to reach the Sanghar peoples and build relationships with them. Pray that the gospel will be shared and that many will come to know Jesus as their one and only Lord and Savior.

While it did drop over 5" of rain on the capital city of Taipei, and thousands were evacuated from other flood - prone areas, things could have been much worse. Praise Jesus!

Pray for the families that were in the midst Hurricane Ida as it hit onshore in New Orleans this past Sunday, (8/29/21), as one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the U.S.

Pray as power is out in all of New Orleans, roofs were blown off of buildings and homes, and the flow of the Mississippi River was actually reversed as it rushed from the Louisiana coast into one of the nation’s most important industrial corridors. - This includes the area where Pastor Rice (who recently spoke at EBC during IGNITE21) lives.

Michelle Ferrell :Pray for Abbie Heim Dixon

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!

UPDATE (9/13/21): ABBIE IS HOME!!!! She continues to beat every recovery timetable the doctors throw out there... So they finally just sent her home last night!

She will continue to be on oxygen, as she is still very weak, and recovering her strength will take work and time. But BOY, is it cool that she is home with Micah and her babies...

Please pray:

- That Abbie continues to strengthen and improve

- That she will be able to rest so much better now that she is home

- That she will continue to be free from secondary complications and infections

- That her spirits would continue to be strengthened by the Holy Spirit and the love of her family and friends

Our God has kept her safe through all these dark waters. Thank you for praying and rejoicing with us today!

"Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy Name!" ~ Psalm 103:1"

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

UPDATE (9/10/21): Abbie has graduated from high flow nasal cannula to a “normal” nasal cannula today. And ECMO not just turned off... It's REMOVED completely!!!! A few days ago, doctors were estimating she would be on it for another two weeks. Then that changed to a week. Then a few more days... then a few more hours. What a miracle, friends! So far, Abbie's body has responded so well, it's truly supernatural.

Medical staff will continue to monitor her and then determine if she can move from the Covid ICU to the general Medical ICU. The staff told Abbie that only 40% of the patients in their Covid ICU unit recover, so we are definitely praising our gracious God today...

Requests right now:

Pray for continued respiratory improvement.

Pray for Covid to be eliminated.

Pray for other lab/blood issues that need to stabilize.

Pray she can sleep.

Pray for continued opportunities to share what Christ has done!

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!"

- Psalm 150:6

——————————————————————

UPDATE (9/5/21): Abbie’s husband,Micah, and mom,Joy, got to FaceTime her for an HOUR today! Abbie's voice was quite a bit stronger, and she was able to hold a conversation much better. Abbie said God is doing a miracle. “He is healing me. Pray for sustaining power.”

She has been sleeping better, but does not remember the last two weeks, even from before she was sedated and put on the vent - bits and pieces only, Joy said. Abbie has started physical therapy, and has been able to manage standing unaided, sitting in a chair, and a little bit of marching in place.

Baby Boy is perfectly healthy and beautiful. Abbie's brother John flies in tonight from North Carolina, so prayers for his family while he is away.

Our current prayer list for Abbie:

- That Abbie continues to grow stronger and be able to sustain lower levels of oxygen support

- That her body can handle being off the ECMO soon

- That the remaining virus in Abbie's lungs would die and allow the healing to happen more quickly

- That Abbie would remain free of infection and complications

Thanks, friends. God has answered our prayers in such a miraculous way this week, and we are so thankful for more time with our Abbie! Keep praying.

—————————————————

UPDATE (9/4/21): Family members were able to talk to Abbie for a short time, and she could talk a tiny bit today. Incredible to hear from her. She wanted to see her babies really badly.

The physical therapist was very encouraged about what Abbie accomplished today. She successfully stood up out of bed and was able to march in place a little. She said she was too out of breath to do anything else, but that was great progress for day 1.

Abbie still remains on supplemental oxygen through her nasal cannula, and she is still dependent on the ECMO machine. The goal is for her to be able to get off this support as soon as she is able.

Prayer list from today:

- That God will stop the virus still present in Abbie's lungs

- That Abbie can sustain being off the vent and decrease her need for supplemental oxygen

- That she would be unusually fast to get off the ECMO

- That she will pass the swallow study

- That she will tolerate PT to prevent further issues

- That no infections or other serious complications

And of course, pray for Abbie's mind and spirit, as this will be a marathon recovery process.

————————————————————-

PRAISE UPDATE (9/3/21):

Abbie is AWAKE. And she made it all night off the ventilator.

PRAY:

- That Abbie continues to hold oxygen levels without the ventilator

- That Abbie's body would be able to continue the healing process and be able to get off the ECMO as soon as possible

- That the medical staff would continue to have wisdom and alertness as they monitor Abbie through this new stage in healing

—————————————————

UPDATE (8/31/21): Yesterday, the ICU was able to wean Abbie's sedation just enough to test neurological function (how well her brain is working.) ABBIE DID WELL! Praise the Lord!

Other good news is that her vitals remain stable and all other organs are looking great, which is amazing given the stress she has been under.

However, Abbie did not tolerate the drop in sedation for very long, and they had to turn it right back up again. Our biggest concern right now is that Abbie's body and mind need to be able to tolerate the sedation dropping. She needs to be able to work WITH the ventilator and not against it.

Normally, the course is:

1) Wean off sedation and the paralytic meds

2) Wean off the ECMO machine

3) Wean off the ventilator

Abbie needs to conquer Step One before moving on to Steps Two & Three. Her body and mind need to be able to handle being awake. Please pray with us friends.

Pray:

- For the doctors to have wisdom as they attempt again today to wean Abbie's sedation

- For Abbie's body and spirit to handle the drop well

- For healing to begin in her lungs

- For Abbie's mind to know the peace of the Holy Spirit

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

UPDATE (8/29/21) EVENING: Abbie has been successfully hooked up to the ECMO machine and settled into her room in the UCLA ICU. Within the first 2 hours, they were able to decrease her oxygen input from the machine from 100% down to 50%, and her CO2 levels have gone from dangerously high at 60-70% to a more healthy range of 40%.

Abbie will remain heavily sedated while on this machine. The next goal would be that they can slowly decrease her sedation to the point of her being able to respond to some basic commands, while still allowing the ECMO to do its work relieving her lungs and heart.

———————————————————-

UPDATE (8/29/21): Abbie has now been safely transferred to the UCLA ICU, where she will now have access to the ECMO machine needed to relieve the stress on her lungs and heart.

The baby will be released to come home TOMORROW (8/30/21). Baby is healthy and strong, and just so loved already.

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

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST (7:30 pm) : Please pray for an ICU bed to open up at UCLA (about 20 min. from where she is now) and if deemed necessary, that she can be put on ECMO as soon as possible. Joy (Abbie’s mom) explained that an ECMO machine is similar to a heart lung machine, and this treatment could bring good success for Abbie. The sooner they get her on it, the better. Please join us in praying for this specifically!

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

UPDATE #3 (8/27/21):

The baby is healthy and well. Abbie remains in critical condition in the ICU.

Today's big prayer points so far are:

- For Abbie's body to begin to respond to treatments

- For significant improvement to occur so she can be taken off the sedation and breathing aids

- For the baby to continue to grow and thrive

- For Micah to continue to rest and heal so he can return to the hospital

"With my voice I cry to the Lord; with my voice I plead for mercy to the Lord. I pour out my complaint before Him; I tell my trouble to Him."

- Psalm 142:1-2

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

UPDATE #2 (8/26/21) EVENING: Update#2

THE BABY IS BORN! And doing so well. Micah is still not allowed in the hospital, but Joy may be allowed in to see the baby.

ICU says Abbie's vitals are good, and she did respond to some commands. But she is in critical condition, and she has been sedated and put on a breathing tube. She will remain sedated until she shows significant improvement.

We are so thankful that Abbie's vitals held strong for the surgery and that the baby is well and healthy!

Please pray:

- For the breathing tube to help Abbie's oxygen levels rise and for the delivery to do its work of relieving the pressure on Abbie's lungs so she can turn the corner towards recovery.

- For Abbie's numbers to stabilize very soon: well enough for sedation and breathing tube to be removed as soon as it is safe to do so.

- For the baby to continue to thrive and stay healthy as Joy waits to be admitted.

- For Micah to be comforted, as he still is not allowed to see his wife or newborn.

- For the rest of the family to have peace in the waiting.

Lots to praise the Lord for. Lots to continue to pray for!

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

UPDATE #1 (8/26/21) EVENING - Abbie is currently prepped and waiting on an OR room to open up at the hospital. Neither Micah (husband) nor Joy (Abby’s mom) were allowed to be with her, which is incredibly hard.

Micah still had a fever from COVID, so it is doubtful he will be allowed in even to see the baby. He cannot see Abbie at all, even to wait in the waiting room. We are praying at least Joy is permitted in for the baby, if not for Abbie.

This procedure is intended to help give Abbie and baby the best chances by relieving the pressure on Abbie's lungs and allowing her the option of a breathing tube if needed.

Please pray for Abbie's body to endure the surgery and recovery.

Please pray for Micah to heal and be allowed into the hospital soon.

Pray for Joy as she waits to hear if she will be allowed in to see the baby or Abbie.

Abbie’s parents, grandparents, and aunts, etc live in Rocky Mount.

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

INITIAL PRAYER REQUEST (8/26/21 Early Afternoon):

Pray for Abbie Heim Dixon (lives in CA). She is 37 weeks pregnant with her second child and has Covid. She has been admitted to ICU due to concerns about her oxygen levels and lung capacity. Pray Abbie would know God's presence. Pray for her husband Micah as he recovers from Covid also. Pray for their unborn baby that an emergency C section would not be needed and that Abbie can continue the pregnancy until she is recovered.

UPDATE (9/10/21): Abbie has graduated from high flow nasal cannula to a “normal” nasal cannula today. And ECMO not just turned off... It's REMOVED completely!!!! A few days ago, doctors were estimating she would be on it for another two weeks. Then that changed to a week. Then a few more days... then a few more hours. What a miracle, friends! So far, Abbie's body has responded so well, it's truly supernatural.

Medical staff will continue to monitor her and then determine if she can move from the Covid ICU to the general Medical ICU. The staff told Abbie that only 40% of the patients in their Covid ICU unit recover, so we are definitely praising our gracious God today...

Requests right now:

Pray for continued respiratory improvement.

Pray for Covid to be eliminated.

Pray for other lab/blood issues that need to stabilize.

Pray she can sleep.

Pray for continued opportunities to share what Christ has done!

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!"

- Psalm 150:6

——————————————————————

UPDATE (9/5/21): Abbie’s husband,Micah, and mom,Joy, got to FaceTime her for an HOUR today! Abbie's voice was quite a bit stronger, and she was able to hold a conversation much better. Abbie said God is doing a miracle. “He is healing me. Pray for sustaining power.”

She has been sleeping better, but does not remember the last two weeks, even from before she was sedated and put on the vent - bits and pieces only, Joy said. Abbie has started physical therapy, and has been able to manage standing unaided, sitting in a chair, and a little bit of marching in place.

Baby Boy is perfectly healthy and beautiful. Abbie's brother John flies in tonight from North Carolina, so prayers for his family while he is away.

Our current prayer list for Abbie:

- That Abbie continues to grow stronger and be able to sustain lower levels of oxygen support

- That her body can handle being off the ECMO soon

- That the remaining virus in Abbie's lungs would die and allow the healing to happen more quickly

- That Abbie would remain free of infection and complications

Thanks, friends. God has answered our prayers in such a miraculous way this week, and we are so thankful for more time with our Abbie! Keep praying.

—————————————————

UPDATE (9/4/21): Family members were able to talk to Abbie for a short time, and she could talk a tiny bit today. Incredible to hear from her. She wanted to see her babies really badly.

The physical therapist was very encouraged about what Abbie accomplished today. She successfully stood up out of bed and was able to march in place a little. She said she was too out of breath to do anything else, but that was great progress for day 1.

Abbie still remains on supplemental oxygen through her nasal cannula, and she is still dependent on the ECMO machine. The goal is for her to be able to get off this support as soon as she is able.

Prayer list from today:

- That God will stop the virus still present in Abbie's lungs

- That Abbie can sustain being off the vent and decrease her need for supplemental oxygen

- That she would be unusually fast to get off the ECMO

- That she will pass the swallow study

- That she will tolerate PT to prevent further issues

- That no infections or other serious complications

And of course, pray for Abbie's mind and spirit, as this will be a marathon recovery process.

————————————————————-

PRAISE UPDATE (9/3/21):

Abbie is AWAKE. And she made it all night off the ventilator.

PRAY:

- That Abbie continues to hold oxygen levels without the ventilator

- That Abbie's body would be able to continue the healing process and be able to get off the ECMO as soon as possible

- That the medical staff would continue to have wisdom and alertness as they monitor Abbie through this new stage in healing

—————————————————

UPDATE (8/31/21): Yesterday, the ICU was able to wean Abbie's sedation just enough to test neurological function (how well her brain is working.) ABBIE DID WELL! Praise the Lord!

Other good news is that her vitals remain stable and all other organs are looking great, which is amazing given the stress she has been under.

However, Abbie did not tolerate the drop in sedation for very long, and they had to turn it right back up again. Our biggest concern right now is that Abbie's body and mind need to be able to tolerate the sedation dropping. She needs to be able to work WITH the ventilator and not against it.

Normally, the course is:

1) Wean off sedation and the paralytic meds

2) Wean off the ECMO machine

3) Wean off the ventilator

Abbie needs to conquer Step One before moving on to Steps Two & Three. Her body and mind need to be able to handle being awake. Please pray with us friends.

Pray:

- For the doctors to have wisdom as they attempt again today to wean Abbie's sedation

- For Abbie's body and spirit to handle the drop well

- For healing to begin in her lungs

- For Abbie's mind to know the peace of the Holy Spirit

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

UPDATE (8/29/21) EVENING: Abbie has been successfully hooked up to the ECMO machine and settled into her room in the UCLA ICU. Within the first 2 hours, they were able to decrease her oxygen input from the machine from 100% down to 50%, and her CO2 levels have gone from dangerously high at 60-70% to a more healthy range of 40%.

Abbie will remain heavily sedated while on this machine. The next goal would be that they can slowly decrease her sedation to the point of her being able to respond to some basic commands, while still allowing the ECMO to do its work relieving her lungs and heart.

———————————————————-

UPDATE (8/29/21): Abbie has now been safely transferred to the UCLA ICU, where she will now have access to the ECMO machine needed to relieve the stress on her lungs and heart.

The baby will be released to come home TOMORROW (8/30/21). Baby is healthy and strong, and just so loved already.

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

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST (7:30 pm) : Please pray for an ICU bed to open up at UCLA (about 20 min. from where she is now) and if deemed necessary, that she can be put on ECMO as soon as possible. Joy (Abbie’s mom) explained that an ECMO machine is similar to a heart lung machine, and this treatment could bring good success for Abbie. The sooner they get her on it, the better. Please join us in praying for this specifically!

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

My younger brother, John, fell from a two story deck on Saturday evening, 8/14, around 9pm, in Manito, Illinois. He was at his neighbor's house across the street, was getting ready to head home, but fell over the rail. He had to be airlifted to OSF Hospital in Peoria, Illinois.

As of this afternoon, here's the issues he's facing : 4 fractured ribs, a broken collar bone, and a collapsed lung. He is wearing a neck brace. John is awake and spoke to my mom earlier today, when she briefly visited him. He has a morphine drip to help him to sleep. He refuses to take any pain pills.

More tests will probably be run tomorrow morning. Please pray John's care providers. Please pray for the diagnosis and recovery steps. He will be in the hospital for a few days. He is one of those individuals that has chosen not to be COVID vaccinated.

John is not a believer. Is this that life event that John responds to His calling? More to follow as details become available.

Glenn Parrish

UPDATE (8/16/21) Glenn's white blood cell numbers came back down. Praise the Lord! They are waiting for blood work results and if all comes back good, he should be discharged to go home with oral antibiotics sometime today. Please continue to pray for his continued healing.

UPDATE (8/14/21): Please pray for Glenn's white blood cells to return to normal. They have added another antibiotic to help with this.

UPDATE (8/13/21) The doctors continue to be encouraged by what they see on Glenn's x-rays. They will do a CT scan today. Once those results come back, they may inject meds to further break down the infection. They diagnosed Glenn with a streptococcus intermedius virus this morning so they are treating him with a specific form of antibiotic to treat him. Please continue to pray for his white blood cell count to come back down. Normal is 10 and under, and his is currently at 23.1.

Please pray for Beth's husband Glenn who was admitted to Vidant Greenville yesterday, after a check up appt. with his dr. Tests had shown possible blood in his lungs. After many tests yesterday and today, Glenn went in to surgery, where they went in to check his lungs to look for infection and fluid. He came out of the procedure well, and the surgeon ONLY found an infection - NOTHING else! Praise the Lord! It will be sent off for biopsy, but surgeon feels confident that everything is ok.

Glen will stay in the hospital for the next several days. Please pray for pain management, and for less pain this evening for Glenn at the site where the tubes are. Pray for rest.

I would appreciate prayers, as my son died 20 months ago yesterday (8/9), due to terrible depression and I continue to grieve for him although I know he is a wonderful place.

I did attend the grief support group at Englewood Baptist until it was stopped due to the pandemic. Thank you for the prayers!

I ask for prayer for my family for all the struggles seen and unseen. For all the things that we don't speak about even to eachother. May I be able to continue to provide for my family and find a position that allows the flexibility to take care them as well as my own medical needs. I ask for protection over my children and my grandchildren.

I ask for prayers of strength and comfort for my dearest friend that he find peace and comfort in knowing that he's needed more so than just for what he provides.

I lift up my parents. My mother and my father in the struggles they face both medically and financially.

And lastly I ask for the strength to continue to be everything that is needed of me unselfishly. For mental stability, provision as I've been out of work for over a year, a refrigerator that works and car that all the doors open on. God bless you all and thank you and our Father in advance.
