UPDATE on Marilou: She reports she is out of the ICU and in a semi-private room now, receiving good care and medical and dietary instructions, PTL! She's still very weak and needing much assistance, and expects to be sent to a rehab facility before being able to return to her own place on her own. She says she feels the Lord's presence and is very grateful for all who have been praying for her.

CompassCare

There were 24 women served at the three CompassCare locations last week, PTL! -------- "Serena" recently came to the United States hoping to create a better life for herself. She is raising a toddler and hopes to attend college. When she found out she is pregnant again, she immediately made an appointment at Planned Parenthood to get an abortion. Financial pressure and concerns about her education and career choked out any hope she had for raising two children. Abortion seemed like the only way forward. Wanting to safeguard her health and learn about her options, though still planning on an abortion, Serena decided to come to CompassCare for diagnostic services. Her nurse provided an ultrasound exam and STD testing. Serena discussed her questions regarding abortion with her caring nurse, as well as adoption and parenting. At the end of the appointment, Serena's nurse provided her with a personalized list of community supports available to help her parent her children. When her nurse gently presented the gospel, Serena said she knows Jesus personally. She was grateful to learn about the local churches that are ready to support her and her family, agreeing to meet with a MotherCare Mentor. She decided she will return to CompassCare for a follow-up appointment before her abortion appointment next week. Pray for Serena as she considers this life and death decision. Pray she draws near to Christ and that He will reveal the true value of the life of her child and His faithfulness to her. ------- Praise: When "Marianna" started experiencing nausea, she suspected she could be pregnant. So she called CompassCare to schedule an appointment. She wanted to confirm her pregnancy and confided that she needed a safe place to talk. Her boyfriend was pressuring her to get an abortion she didn’t want. “I really want to keep it,” she explained. “But he doesn’t want to have another one.” Marianna had not spoken with anyone else in her family about her pregnancy, wanting to get an ultrasound before making a decision. She expressed joy at seeing her preborn baby on the ultrasound screen and talked with her nurse about her hopes for her future with her baby. When her nurse asked her about her spiritual life, Marianna said she has no faith at all. However, when her nurse presented the gospel to her, Marianna was immediately awakened to the truth of Christ’s love for her. Praying with her nurse, Marianna surrendered control of her life to Jesus in prayer. She made a return appointment and left with a study Bible containing highlighted verses for new believers.

Upon her return the following week, Marianna said she’d made up her mind. She is going to have her baby! Hungry to understand the scriptures, she had already met with her Christian grandmother several times over the past week to study the highlighted verses in her gifted Bible. Marianna is also now connected to one of CompassCare's MotherCare mentors who will be walking with her through her pregnancy and helping her connect to a local church. Praise God for the miracle of salvation in Marianna’s life! Pray she and her children are able to grow and flourish under the grace of God in the coming months.

Joy

Update from Joy on her brother, Bruce: The CT scan and any other testing prior to Bruce being admitted into the clinical study was cancelled due to his hemoglobin count being too low. Sadly, he is no longer eligible for the clinical study, but he will start therapy this week. He's handling the news pretty well. Our God is an Awesome God and He has everything under control. Trusting in Him to bring Bruce safely through, to save him and heal him, according to the Lord's plan and purpose. Thank you for praying and interceding for my brother!

Prayer request from Sheryl: My mom Louisa’s aggressive oral cancer has returned. She is currently in hospice at home. Appreciate prayer for pain relief and that she could totally forgive those who have wronged her. And that she could go to be with the Lord in His perfect time without anguish over leaving her cat. Thank you saints.

UPDATE on Marilou: She ended up being released from the hospital last Friday, but was unable to care for herself over the weekend, and was taken to a different hospital Sunday evening, where she reports she is getting good care. She is still in a lot of pain, but is able to eat a little, and was anticipating a visit from a Social Worker and a Physical Therapist. She thinks she may be going to some assisted living facility for long term care. Please keep praying for the Lord to order her affairs so she gets the care she needs. Thank you for praying!

CompassCare

REPORTS from CompassCare: The Rochester, Buffalo, and Albany clinics ministered to a total of 25 women this week. Pray they will have their babies and submit to Christ. Pray also for the Lord's anointing upon the nurses as they minister to the women and share the Gospel. ------- "Mariah" came to CompassCare feeling desperate and alone. Her husband is out of the country for months at a time, and she recently found out she is pregnant. Due to a history of miscarriage, she is considering getting an abortion rather than facing the uncertainty of a pregnancy. Mariah confided in her nurse, saying she feels hopeless and unsupported. She didn't want an abortion, but her circumstances seemed impossible to navigate alone. By the end of the appointment, she was beginning to see how she could carry her baby to term with the comprehensive community support provided by CompassCare through the Church. Mariah was enthralled by the nurse's description of Christ and presentation of the gospel, eagerly accepting materials to learn more! Pray Mariah encounters the Living God in a transformative way today. Pray she turns to Christ and receives salvation, freedom from fear, and hope for her preborn boy or girl.

UPDATE (10/7): She reports she is still in the hospital E.D. but was told they are getting her a room. She's feeling some better (now that she's not dehydrated) and says the previous diagnosis of a bowel tear was wrong. They are going to schedule a colonoscopy. She very much appreciates the prayers on her behalf.
