Prayer Request - Marty Millikin

We are having a good time at Lighthouse of Holiness in Haines City, Florida. Wednesday night's service was very good. Pastor Dewayne Watson and his family are here and Bro. Watson preached a youth service at 6:00. Pastor Jon Isaacs and his family are here too and Bro. Isaacs will be preaching youth service tonight. It is so great to have them all join us in revival.

We are taking pictures each night and I will post them in the next day or two. Although it was cooler and very windy Wednesday it is beautiful today. Much, much, much better temperatures than it is north of here. Makes me dread heading north this Saturday.

My main reason for writing today is to ask you all to pray for the Millikin family in Oklahoma. It is so heart wrenching to watch our friends go through pain and suffering. As you know Bro. Marty and his mother have been battling cancer this year. Bro. Marty is not doing well at all. The doctors have done all they know to do and are giving him very little hope of survival. Bro. Marty needs a miracle to live.

We understand that life is only temporary. We are all making our way toward our last appointments of death and judgement. We will every one walk that path. Life is really so small and unimportant in the grand scheme of things. God's plan for us in eternity is infinitely more beautiful than the life we have here in our frail human bodies. Yet life here is all we are familiar with. It is all we know.

So we cling to life and we cling to those we love. It is only natural. Bro. Marty is clinging to life. His precious family, the Claremore church and all of his friends are clinging to him. They and we are doing absolutely everything to keep Marty here. But we know that life and death is ultimately in the hands of God. God is in full control of this and every situation.

Therefore we are asking God for a miracle. We want Bro. Marty to live strong and healthy. We want him to raise up and live for God and bless God's people for many, many years. That is what we are asking God for. We desire to have Bro. Marty healed here as a testimony to God. Ultimately we are asking for God's perfect will.

Will you join us in prayer. Pray for Bro. Marty Millikin, his parents Bro. and Sis. Millikin and his brother Bro. Jimmy and Sis. Shauna Millikin. Thank you for your faithfulness to pray.
