Family of Jacob Leal

Please read this prayer request from our ACTS brother, Jacob Leal:
This evening one of my uncles has passed. He fell and was found at his home having already passed.
Shortly after, one of my aunts was taken to the hospital likely from the shock of the news.
We also recently discovered that another uncle of mine was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
I am especially concerned for my father who is very close to his siblings. Please ask the ACTS family to pray for my family and that our Heavenly Father take my uncle home with Him.

Brittany Andry Requesting Prayers for Jimmy, Her Husband's Uncle

Requesting prayers for Jimmy, my husband's uncle. He has been passing out the past couple of days and was admitted to the hospital. He previously had open heart surgery and had a stint put it so the doctors assumed it had to do with that. They went in to repair his stint but afterwards his blood pressure dropped low. They ran some more tests and found out he has a major bleed somewhere. The stint repair caused him to have to be on blood thinners which is the opposite of what he needs to find out where the massive bleed is coming from. They must take him off the thinners to get answers on the bleed but that is a dangerous process. The possibility of a heart attack could occur without the blood thinners. Please, please, pray for the safety of Jimmy during this time. For the doctors and nurses who are aiding in this process and for all his family and friends.

Marguerite Dannemiller

She went to the ER, this past Sunday (Nov. 3rd), because she was having increased difficulty breathing, and a lot of swelling in her legs. She was admitted into the hospital and released on Monday night. Her symptoms suggested congestive heart failure. While hospitalized, they performed multiple tests to determine the cause of her difficulty in breathing. They did a CT Scan, and found multiple new masses on her lungs. Without further diagnostic tests, it is difficult to know what these masses are. However, it was suggested that they are suspicious of metastatic disease (cancer).
