Arlene

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Arlene spent much of last week in Oakwood hospital receiving chemotherapy for masses found her in abdomen. She is coming home today and in much less pain. After not being able to eat much at all her appetite is returning to normal. Arlene feels that her abdomen is smaller and softer and this indicates that the chemo was successful in shrinking the tumors.
The next step is for Arlene to go back to the weekly regime of chemo or antibody therapy once a week. On chemo weeks she will be hospitalized because it makes the experience much easier on her than coming home immediately afterward and feeling sick.
Barry and Arlene want to thank all of those around the world praying for Arlene's complete healing. They remain steadfast believing in God's plans to be glorified through her healing. Please continue to pray with us, especially on chemo days.
And don't forget to pray for Arlene's doctors, nurses and team! God is using them to care for her!
Thanks again and remember...
BY HIS STRIPES!

Thank you Sara for the update on Arlene. My husband and I went to visit her on Saturday night at the hospital and she looked great, smiling and feeling so much better. I wanted to share with you all what my husband seen...He said that God told him..."God was Arlene's LifeLine!" Isnt that amazing...because you all know their prison ministry is called that! That just blessed us! We also gave her a prayer cloth and on that cloth said that God was going to "remove all of her diseases"! I wanted to send more encouragement to you! We are standing with each of you!
