On January 5, 2022, the doctor told us that his treatments weren’t helping and his blood wasn’t making bone marrow. Hospice will be in our home on January 11th. They have given him a month to live. I ask you to pray for my husband in Jesus’ name. Bill said either way he will be a winner, whether he gets his healing here on earth or in Heaven. Please keep us both in your prayers, as well as our families. In Christ, Sharon M…” Praise God – “Answer me, O LORD, for Your loving devotion is good; turn to me in keeping with Your great compassion.” (Psalm 69:16)!
