Prayers requested

MY FAMILY AND I would like to thank all of you for your prayers and the many expressions of concern and support about our daughter Chrissy. I am glad to tell you that she is making slow, but steady progress and that after four days in ICU, she was moved last night to a regular room. She now begins a regimen of medications for her heart and blood pressure problems. Your ongoing prayers will mean a great deal to all of us.
From Bp. Iker
I ask your prayers for Christine Iker, a young woman in her 30s who has suffered her second heart attack. I also ask your prayers for her parents, Bishop Jack Iker and his wife, Donna.

Please pray for a complete recovery for Christine, and for courage, peace, and grace for her parents and her children.



Chrissy, our oldest daughter (37), suffered a very serious heart attack on Friday afternoon, caused by cocaine and heroin. Though it appears that she will survive, at least at this point, the long term prognosis is not good. She has severely damaged her heart again, having already had a very similar heart attack in '97. She has only 25% of her heart functioning. Your prayers are most appreciated.
