Prayer Requested for Lee Dice

Please pray for Pastor Lee and Reva Dice. Lee has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer and needs your prayers for God’s wisdom, comfort, peace, and perfect will to be done.

Lee most recently served as associate pastor at the Grace Brethren Church of Wooster, Ohio, but has also served as senior pastor in churches in Pennsylvania and Indiana. He will also be recognized by many pastors because of his faithful role as secretary for the Association of Grace Brethren Ministers. As expected, Lee and Reva have handled the news with great faith, filled with their steadfast hope in Jesus Christ.

Larry Richeson Hospitalized

Jim Franklin, pastor of the Flora, Ind., Grace Brethren Church sent this message yesterday evening.

Pastor Larry Richeson of Indian Heights GBC has been admitted to Howard Community Hospital in Kokomo IN. His blood pressure is very high and the docs want to get it under control. Larry had some routine tests done today. Please pray for Larry and his wife, Norma.

Update: As of late this afternoon, Larry was scheduled to be discharged, pending lab results. Continue to pray for the Richesons during this time.

Update (October 7, 2009): Larry has reported all is well with his blood pressure, but when the doctors checked some other, unrelated, symptoms, it was revealed that he has a small tumor on his pituitary gland. At this time, it is believed it is not malignant, but will need to be removed non-surgically at some time in the future.
