Please Pray For Mom's Surgery Today

Dear Friends:

Greetings from the Fisher household! We trust you're having a great summer. The weather here hasn't been very good. We will set a record for the most rainfall in June and July since the late 1800's. There's been rain or the threat of rain almost every day lately.


I just returned from the hospital in Peterborough where my mother, Jean Fisher (pictured with David Shantz), was admitted on Wednesday. She had such severe pain Wednesday morning that she couldn't get out of bed and stand on her own. My brother Mark had to help her. The pain in her groin/hip area became so bad that they called an ambulance to take her to the hospital.

X-rays didn't reveal anything out of the ordinary but a bone scan yesterday showed infection in her replacement hip. Mom has had both hips and both knees replaced in the past.

They removed fluid from her hip Thursday afternoon and mom will have surgery on her infected hip today (Friday).

Please pray that there will be no complications and that the Lord would guide the hands of the surgeon. Mom is in relatively good health except for this setback.

We know that God is sovereign and in control of every situation and we're trusting Him.
Thanks so much for your prayer support for mom.

In His Great Love,

~ David


  1. Please keep us updated! My thoughts and prayers are with her.

  2. The Lord led me to your site tonight and I am thrilled. I'm a nurse, working a nightshift in a hospital taking care of tiny twin boys this evening. In between diaper changes and medicines, I like to jump on the computer and see where God will take me. Tonight he showed me your website, where I have been writing down some quotes from George Muller. How wonderful of you to "introduce" me to this wonderful man, whom I had not heard of prior to this evening.
    I will pray for your mother and for strength for you both. I have a prayer request of my own, if you don't mind my asking. I'm not sure this comment will go through so I won't take the time to write it now. Please send me a confirmation if you get this. My e-mail is

    Your sister in Christ,
    Andrea Gillen
