May 27, 2020 Update ~ by Amy Brox (Ron and Susan Rathgeber's daughter)

It appears that my surgeries are a go for June at Mayo. I have mixed feelings as I write this. I am tremendously thankful that the Covid situation has leveled so that I am able to have these procedures done this summer in Minnesota. I also have a pit in my stomach knowing that I’m within a month of facing these hurdles.

The Gamma Knife procedure to treat the meningioma that is located near my left optic nerve is scheduled for Thursday, June 25th. The surgery to remove the schwannoma on my right side, on or near my vagal nerve, is scheduled for Monday, June 29th. Dr Link will be overseeing both of these.

We’ll share more details later. Thank you for your prayers and the loving support you continue to show to my family.

Thank you for your prayers for Renee, the Village Tours bus driver from Wichita who had been providing transportation to health workers in NYC. Renee returned to Wichita on a flight yesterday. She will be in self quarantine for 14 days to assure that she is virus free before getting out in public. She is still in need of our prayers, however.

The injury is quite painful, has required her to have fluid drained once, and is awaiting an appointment with her local doctor. Please pray for quick and complete recovery since having healthy knees is important to her work as a driver. As always, we ask for this according to God's will.

I talked to Mike Schnitker’s mother who confirmed Mike died from the coronavirus. Mike was hospitalized on April 8, had his 58th birthday on April 21, and died on May 5 at 3:39 P.M. EDT. After days of searching, his parents found a mortuary who will send his ashes to Wichita where they will have a private family service. Pray for Mike's family who are having a difficult time since Mike’s doctor called several weeks ago and asked them not to contact Mike anymore because it was too difficult for him to talk. May he rest in peace.

A Prayer Request for Faith Lutheran Church and School in Derby:

Heavenly Father, we confess we are not always faithful servants and we let our shortcomings get in the way of your promises. We pray, if it be your will, that you provide 20 elementary students and 60 preschool students, all of these your children, to enroll in your school, Faith Lutheran School, by July 1, 2020. We know through you all things are possible. We also ask for your Spirit to come upon all of our hearts that our souls are re-ignited with passion to build our Church, School and MIssions, increasing our faith in you, to glorify your kingdom. We thank you for the blessings you have already provided; of a building, for those who began this mission and those who come after continuing on this path, for those you have introduced us to who are helping to guide and support our efforts to remain faithful. Give us peace and assurance in the midst of our trials. All these things we ask in Jesus name according to your will. Amen.

[We read] In the King James Bible, Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."

O God, please help us and teach us to build a wall [of prayer] around the USA, Canada, Poland and Great Britain. Are you ready to stand in the gap, where God is the Helper and Teacher?

Please pray that Great Britain, Poland, the USA/Canada would overcome for: (The Acts 26.18).

* Poland, pray for freedom from dead religion to saving faith of Jesus Christ as the Saviour and the Lord by faith only,

* the Church in the USA & Canada & Great Britain – Pray for repentance and cleansing of the church - Matt. 3.12 "Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

* my family:

1. Stir up the hearts of my family for ministry for me, my wife Dorothy, our daughter Ann, and our sons Peter and Daniel - "..but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24.15

2. Pray for God's will, wisdom, discernment, revelation and recognition for me and my family; I ask God for Edmund’s work situation, God's direction for Edmund , Dorothy, Peter, Daniel and Ann (also God's protection and blessings over the company where she works and she needs a husband),

3. God's order in my work. I ask God for great wisdom at my work. Blessings and the knowledge of Jesus Christ for my bosses. Thank God for the continuation of my work.

Help us to take this time to make stronger connections -with You, and with our families. Help us to look around us and truly see all the blessings You have given each and every one of us. Help us spread Your holy word and love out into a world who sorely needs it.

We thank you dear Lord for the opportunities of this new season. Help us to be inspired by You in finding a "new normal" with You firmly at the center.
