"To my dear church family and Pastor Bancroft, thank
you all for your continued prayers. I got a praise report
last Wednesday that I have shown signs of improvement and
my doctor was very excited. I still have some way to go
but the most important part is that my lungs have shown
improvement. Thanks be to the Almighty. I can now talk much
better. The blood of Jesus ransom me, everywhere I go I
want the world to know he sets me free. Please continue
to pray for me as I am still in need of prayers. Miss you
