    1. Aunt Barb Poro and family says:

      Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you

    2. Eric and Maridel Braman says:

      Just a note to let you know that you are in our prayers. We are so sorry to hear about Stuarts situation. We know that there is a reason and in the right time those blessings will be apparent. May God bless you and hold you in his loving arms. At the time of our daughters surgery, we could feel the power of prayer being lifted up from every angle and wrapping around her, I feel that this is the same for Stuart and that warmth of prayer is there wrapping all around Maridel and Eric

    3. Ray and Lorna Johnson says:

      Our love, thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. We pray that God will give you and your family renewed strength for each day and that God will provide Stuart with the best medical professional help. We praise God that your family has been there with you.

    4. Gary and Norma Werner says:

      We are continuing to lift your whole family up to God in our prayers. We too know from personal sickness and loss how much the prayers of Christians around the country are appreciated and how God works in answering these prayers. God bless you all. Tiffany is in DesMoines, right? I’m sure she will be an added blessing in being able to be there with her dad and family.

      We thank all of you for your prayers! Tiffany, Jeremy, and Justin all live in Des Moines.

    6. Autumn Nemitz says:

      We have been praying for you all. The Church in Denver has been praying too.

    7. Carolyn Sheridan says:

      Though I was praying often for you all, especially Stuart and Valerie, I am now praying almost constantly throughout the day. I don’t sleep too well at nights so I am often up and praying then too. I think of somewhere, probably in Psalms, it says something about the nightwatch. I think about that when I am sitting in the quiet nighttime reading the blog and praying. Although I do not understand just why things are happening in this situation creating such an up and down and terribly difficult time for you all, I do believe with all my heart that God is not only watching out for you all and holding you in His hands, but that He is using all this for some very important spiritual purpose. Though we are physically located in different places around the world, spiritually we are all together kneeling in prayer before God’s throne in heaven. My heart is with everyone involved and especially Stuart and the family. God bless and strenthen you all out there.

    8. Naomi Merrill says:

      Naomi and I have been doing a LOT of praying for her Grandpa Stuart. Sometimes the words of a child express things better than ours ever could! Maybe because of their innocents. Therefore I decided to type this prayer as she said it, hoping that it would encourage those who read it, especially the family. tears rolled down her face as she said this but within a minute the tears had stopped and she was singing “I’ve Got Joy Like a Fountain”. May we all be like children, tearfully in prayer but remembering that we have joy as well.

      Naomi’s Prayer

      Dear GOD,
      I hope Grandpa will feel better and I hope he will have a safe trip. I hope he earns some money (raises money) to pay for everything and get better. I hope he won’t get worse but if he does I hope he will find an even better hospital. Help him to come home soon and start taking and walking and playing with me soon. And I hope grandma will feel comfort and that she will not feel alone because Daddy and Grandma Sinn will be with her. Help her not to frighten over Grandpa. In JESUS name, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!

      The words of children sometimes express it best. Know that James and I are thinking and praying for the whole family at this time. The situation occupies a large part of our thoughts and prayers. We love you all.

    10. Gene and Ruthie Johnson says:

      I was making fliers with a picture of Stuart and Val to handout at our worhship serivce in the morning. While making them a lady asked about the fliers and who the people were. I told her the the short version of what was happenig. She asked if she could take a copy and share it with her morning prayer group. Even people we don’t know care and are praying for you all. Thouhgt you wolud like to know.

      Lord bless WE serve an awesome God.

    11. Kevin and Nancy Fox says:

      I pray that all who work on Stuart medically will be able to keep everything under control and be blessed by working on one of Yours. Please, my Father, let his journey be complete. If it be Des Moines, Iowa, or wherever please keep him in the palm of Your Hands. We love You, my Creator, and Thank You for Your many blessings. Stuart has been doing a fruitful job for You. Would You please hear my request and let him be with us longer. Please let him continue the blessful work he’s been doing for You in Russia and elsewhere. I accept Your will but I know You understand why I hope for this moment in time.
      I Thank You, my Master, for this family who has loved You through and by their ministry.
      I await with FAITH and TRUST for The Answer.
      Your Follower, Nancy Fox
      P.S. I fast and pray for all of you. Especially my family in Russia and the Merrill family but as well I remember all my brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. May we all have unity to see The Church go forth.
      We love you all and pray, Kevin and Nancy Fox
