Living Assistance

Please add my friend Monique to your prayers.  I received a call from her that there was a fire in her apartment complex.  She has no idea if her apartment will be accessible at all to gather any of her belongings or if it even exists anymore.  She is from Poland and does not have family in the States.  Please pray that she will be able to find a few of her cherished belongings and that she can find a place to live.  
Thanks, Suzanne Avolicino

Comfort and Peace

Jan & I are asking if your prayer groups would please pray for Debi Barnhart our 3rd from the oldest daughter (51 yrs. old) who has lung cancer - stage 4 and is in ICU at Irvine (at the cancer hospital).  We were told yesterday that she may have 1-2 weeks to go.  They have called in a couple doctors from UCLA to evaluate the situation to be sure that nothing else can be done.  The family and many brothers and sisters in Christ are still believing for a miracle, but Debi is prepared to go and it is a win - win situation for her as she is a believer.  By the way, she never smoked.  She was exposed to second hand when Jan & I smoked which was when she was much younger.  Your prayers will be greatly appreciated.  God's blessings to the brothers/sisters at Calvary. 
Pastor Jerry & Jan Barnhart

Comfort and Relief

Please pray for Lynn Jackson ( a mom of one of our students).  She has been under a lot of stress and had to be taken to Emergency the day before Thanksgiving.  She had chest pains and pain radiating down one arm.  Her mother passed away during the summer, and now her father is not doing well.  She went on stress-leave from her full-time job to recover her health and to care for her father.
