My family and I have watched Jacobs tent regularly now for over 3 years and visited 2 years ago at Shavuot. My mom (Beth) and I had been in contact with Bill a while ago- about 2 years ago now. You all were praying for my dad’s (Steve) salvation and my parents marriage. My dad had also spoke to Bill on the phone around that time. I have not emailed any updates since then and I have some prayer requests..
My parents ended up separating in august of 2021. Shortly after this happened, my immune system shut down. I started developing health issues and was finally diagnosed with hashimotos disease in October 2022. Even though I have received treatment, my health issues have continued to persist and I have now been out of work for 7 months. I’ve gone to various doctors and they have not been able to figure out why I wasn’t doing better even though my thyroid levels have been normal for months. I was recently diagnosed with long term covid about 1 month ago. (I had covid extremely bad back in august of 2022). I started taking hydroxychloroquine which I believe has helped most of my symptoms now (praise God). I am hoping and praying I can go back to work this week or next week. Although one symptom that has persisted and has gotten worse every day is body aches. This is the first symptom that started about a year ago, in my right leg. It has now spread to various other parts of my body. It causes me to not sleep at night, so I’ve had to start taking stronger pain medications, but this still doesn’t help completely. I believe it’s muscle related. I also catch viruses about 2-3 times per month due to my weak immune system. I am going to see a rheumatologist next week on May 2 to see if I have another autoimmune disease. Asking for prayer for more answers but also divine healing. I’m 24 years old and have been very discouraged and weary about my health problems.
I would also like to ask for prayer for direction of whether or not I should continue my masters program in clinical mental health counseling at this time. I have 3 semesters left.
Another update is that my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (non Hodgkin’s lymphoma) about 1 year ago. He has gone through chemo, CAR-T therapy, and now his next step is focal radiation. Please continue to pray for his salvation. I honestly do not know how much longer he will have on this earth if he does not repent and give his life to Yeshua.
My mom, my sister, a few friends and I are planning to come to Shavuot in person next month. I am very excited but PRAYING that my health issues will not get in the way of me being able to attend. Hopefully someone can pray over me when I come.
I give permission to say these things on the live stream (in summary if you’d like)
