CompassCare

UPDATE/PRAYER NEEDS: A total of 20 patients were seen this week in the three regions (Buffalo, Rochester, Capital) served. Patients continue to be served in Buffalo while CompassCare repairs the damage done by the June 7 firebombing and rebuilds bigger to serve more women and save more babies. Please pray for favor with the Town of Amherst for building permits, access to building materials, and funds to cover the costs of the addition. Pray that all the patients seen this week would submit to Christ and have their babies, especially "Gwen", who tearfully told her nurse she would have her baby if the father would help her. She is concerned she cannot financially support a child and plans to get an abortion. She did not show up for her return appointment. Pray her fear is transformed into confidence and God gives Gwen a hopeful view of her future. ------- PRAISE: "Angie" requested an appointment for an ultrasound immediately in order to move forward with scheduling an abortion. The scheduler explained the medical services offered and gave her the first available appointment. When she came in, Angie told her nurse she cannot have a child right now because her living situation is not ideal and she has financial concerns. When she saw her active nine-week-old baby on the ultrasound screen, however, her heart was moved. She happily told her nurse she now plans to continue her pregnancy! Praise God for sparing the life of this child and for His mercy towards Angie in her time of need! Pray Angie and her baby are surrounded by support and she turns to Christ as her Lord and Savior.

Please pray for the healing of the ringing in my ears that has plagued me for over 7 years. It is constant and at times spikes where it causes a lot of anxiety and fear.

UPDATES/PRAISE REPORTS: Linda's sister Mary Lou came home from the hospital yesterday (Tuesday) and is doing well. It is going to take a couple of months for her to get back to normal but it is great news that she is on the mend. ------- Linda had her allergy test for cisplatin (the next chemo that she will be on) this morning (Wed.) and it has been determined that she most likely will not have an allergic reaction to the chemo. The first infusion will be done in the hospital over a 7 or 8 hour period to be certain that there is no reaction, and if there is it can be easily handled there in the hospital. ------- Our son-in-law Jay continues to do well with his chemo and immunotherapy; it just takes him a little more time to recover from a treatment, but the treatment is working.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been praying for our family. It is such a great comfort knowing that the prayers of the faithful are going up to our great and wonderful Healer!

Please keep Mike Grabowski in prayer for strength/stamina to return to his body, that will enable physical therapy to start up again and eventually allow Mike the ability to stand upright and Lord willing, begin walking. Thank you all for your continued prayers.

From CompassCare: In the wake of the firebombing of CompassCare’s Buffalo office on June 7, CompassCare is going to take this opportunity to expand capacity to serve more women and save more babies. Patients continue to be served at an alternate secure location temporarily and the goal is to move back in to the CompassCare office on July 29. Please pray for the following critical needs:

• The Town of Amherst building permits to be issued quickly.

• Access to building materials of all kinds.

• Funds to cover the costs of the addition, ~$265,000

• Tradesmen and volunteers with a fighting spirit.

• Pray that the words of Nehemiah would be true of the people of God at CompassCare this summer, “So we built the wall and the whole wall was joined together...for the people had a mind to work” (Neh. 4:6). ------- Other prayer needs: "Joyce" told her nurse she is considering abortion because she can't possibly care for another child with her current work schedule. And she worries the physical toll pregnancy will take on her body will keep her from being a successful parent and employee. However, after seeing her baby on the ultrasound screen, she softened considerably, saying "I am probably going to keep the baby." Joyce said she has a lot to think about and discuss with the father of the baby and needs time to make a final decision. Pray she chooses to protect and nurture the life of their child and resists the temptation to abort. -------- Pray the 24 patients served in the 3 CompassCare locations this week will have their babies and submit to Christ. -------- Pray for the nurses and they serve the women and share the Gospel.

UPDATES: Linda's bloodwork on Monday showed the cancer markers had jumped WAY UP. We saw the oncologist yesterday. if the scan this Sunday shows that the tumors have gotten larger (as we suspect), then Linda will be going on a different chemo infusion. It is a very strong drug so the doctor is scheduling an allergic reaction test first. The first infusion will have to be done overnight in the hospital to make sure there are no adverse effects. If all goes well, the future infusions can be done at the infusion center. We are comfortable with the new plan going forward. ------- Her sister Mary Lou's white blood count has still not gone down even though she is on high doses of antibiotics. The doctors are considering doing an MRI because they are concerned about her pancreas. -------- Our son-in-law Jay is doing well, Praise God! His cancer markers have gone way down and his feeding tube

has been removed. Jay and our daughter Michele want to thank everyone for all the prayers. God hears the prayers of the faithful and responds, and it is comforting to know that people are praying for you. Doctors are good, but no one can heal like God can!

Praise Report: "Simone" had three separate appointments at CompassCare. At her first appointment she was abortion-determined, believing there was no way she could continue her pregnancy due to her age and lack of support from the father of the baby. She also feared breaking the news of the pregnancy to her dad. After seeing her baby on the ultrasound screen and hearing his heartbeat, Simone began to soften. During follow-up, Simone's nurse learned that had she told her dad about the baby and he responded with kindness and love, committing to support her. She now plans to carry to term! ------- Prayer requests: The firebombing of CompassCare's Buffalo office on June 7 by pro-abortion terrorists left extensive damage. CompassCare moved services to a secure and undisclosed location. Pray CompassCare is able to rebuild and be back in our home facility by July 29. --------

The pro-abortion crimewave continues across the U.S. with 25 pregnancy centers attacked by pro-abortion terrorists. As best we can tell, there have been made zero federal and state law enforcement resources allocated to protect pro-life pregnancy centers and people despite elevated threats. Pray for protection and that the criminals are caught. --------- Pease pray for courage as the nursing teams continue to serve women considering abortion in Rochester, Buffalo, and the Capitol region. -------- Pray for wisdom as CompassCare increases security, interacts with local and federal law-enforcement agencies, and leverages continued media attention to highlight the work God is doing to serve women and save babies. -------- Pray for all the patients served at CompassCare this week.

UPDATE on Mary Lou (Linda's 92 yr old sister): She had gall bladder surgery last Friday and is recovering. However, they are concerned about the infection she has, so please continue to pray for her healing. And please continue to pray for Linda. She had blood work this week and has a scan this coming Sunday, but her abdominal pain continues and the neuropathy is getting worse, in spite of medication adjustments. Thank you!

PRAISE REPORT on Mom (Marilyn) (broken femur): Mom went into cardiac arrest while on the operating table and suffered some broken ribs when they resuscitated her, but she is now in rehab in the same medical community where she lived before her fall (just last week!), and is doing amazingly well. She is praising the Lord and encouraging her caregivers, and is readily agreeable to using a wheelchair from now on. Thank you for praying!
