Bill

I wanted to ask anyone who is led to pray for my great grandma's husband, Bill. The doctors said he only has a few weeks to live as he has liver cancer. However, the cancer doesn't determine whether he lives or dies. Only God controls that. I am praying that our Heavenly Daddy would lengthen his life and allow him to hear the Gospel through me or someone. But I cannot imagine facing death without Christ. The hurt and fear must be horrible. So I just want to pray for him and if anyone would pray, I would greatly appreciate it. And if God is calling me to give him the Good News, then I pray He would give me the boldness to do so. I don't really know Bill. He and my great grandma moved down here to Rock Hill from Baltimore, Maryland a few years ago. Let our Father have mercy on him and give him the hope of eternity with Him and our brother, Jesus. Amen.

We are praying. Never hesitate to ask.
Just share your heart, Matthew. The Holy Spirit will take it from there.

Matt, I really loved what you said, cancer doesn't determine whether or not he lives but Father determines that! What an amazing way of looking at it!

I will pray for him and your family!

In Freedom, Nicole!

So far he isn't doing good at all. The doctors are pretty much waiting for him to die, they're just trying to keep him as comfortable as possible.

I went to the hospital yesterday and he really did not look good. He couldn't identify my great grandma and he was in a lot of pain. I've never seen him like that. He has always been very laid back and respectable.

They said he had kidney failure and poison is filling his body. I'm not exactly sure what is happening, but I know they expect him to die at any moment. But like I said, only God determines when he dies.

Matthew,

I prayed for Bill and you this morning. In the days to come just keep renewing your mind with the truth that God is good and He is in control.

Thank you for all of your prayers. I'm sorry to say Bill past away this morning around 3AM. My family called mom and told her this morning. Thanks again for all your prayers.

I'm sorry Matthew. Cancer is hard to go through as a family member of the one who has had it. We watched my wife's father pass away in the hospital.

My prayers are with you now.

Sorry I didn't get over here to read about this until today.

Grace upon grace,

Brian
