So....we're heading to Toronto today

Ramona had a list of things she wanted for her birthday. On the top of that list was healing....

A true hero of Ramona's, Heidi Baker is in Toronto this week. So...for her birthday, we're going to a conference she's at. This should be fun.

Ramona is still experiencing pain in her chest. We feel like we have a huge crowd of persistent people praying with us. It truly is encouraging.

Our friend Billie-jo passed away Thursday. Please pray for her husband and her two children.

Ramona and I are definitely in fun zone right now. We're attending an equipping school called Advancing the Kingdom. Tomorrow, the equipping school ends and turns directly into a conference called Kingdom Come.

It's awesome. Experiencing God is definitely a personal thing. I've had a hip problem that's been nagging at me for a long time. Last night, they prayed for me and Jesus loosened up that hip.

If you're not sure what I'm talking about...check out Calvary Temple any of the next few evenings. John Arnott of Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship is in town.

We found out today that our friend Billy-Joe is in palliative care in the St. Boniface Hospital. The doctors are giving her very little time. We visited her, and I said I would post something here for her.

She is fighting a similar disease to what Ramona is battling.

It was an incredibly divine set of circumstances leading us to her today....I'll save that story for some other day. For now...let's go after this for her and Ramona.

Good night,

Wednesday afternoon when we drove away from HSC it kind of felt like waking up from a really bad dream. With her pain roughly under control, Ramona was discharged with the plan of seeing Dr. Wong Thursday to discuss the CT results. Radiation never happened, the tumor appeared too large on the X-ray

We got the CT results yesterday. A few of the tumors have shrunk but there is a tumor on the right side of her chest that has grown to 12cm in length. This 12 cm tumor also looked like it was bleeding into itself. This may be part of the explanation of coughing up blood and a hemoglobin of 63 (Ramona has since been transfused 4 units of red blood cells).

Dr. Wong is currently looking at bringing in an experimental chemo, in case Ramona wants to try it. It may take a few weeks to make that happen. Chemo is canceled for next week.

Today is the first day in the last week that hasn't involved some time in a hospital.

Anyway....We love to be in an atmosphere of hope. It's an exhausting mistake to have any belief that the grim reality presented in a hospital is somehow more true than the reality of the Kingdom of God.

Hi everyone, this is Jill blogging on behalf of Earl & Ramona - I sure hope I know what I am doing here!
Anyway, Earl & Ramona just wanted to update everyone and are unable to get to a computer right now so Earl asked that I would come and update and encourage all you prayer warriors to stay rallied in believing for what is an obvious need for a miracle!

On Sunday, Ramona was brought to Winnipeg (they were home in Morweena) and is currently in hospital here. She was having super intense pain that desperately needed to be controlled. Pain which I can now say is under control with meds.

The preliminary x-ray results don't look very good and the tumors are definitely growing and showed that her ribs could be fractured from the tumors pressing on them.
None of this is definite, however she will be having a CT scan tomorrow which hopefully will show more conclusive results as to what exactly is taking place.

Continue to pray and believe for the miracle that we are all waiting for! It is indefinite as to how long she will be in hospital, but please continue to contend on her behalf! We serve a God who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow! The same God that raised Christ from the dead lives inside of us and that same God has the power to heal!! Let's continue to believe together for Ramona's complete healing!! Lord, let Your will be done on earth as it already is done in heaven.....

Right near the top of the list of things we're thankful for are all the people going after Ramona's healing with us.

Yesterday afternoon at about 4:30 Ramona started coughing up some blood. This is obviously not a good thing. We spent a little time in emergency yesterday and have talked with a doctor this morning about some increased pain Ramona is having too.

It would seem that a tumor is causing pain along the chest wall. The bleeding...just happens. We're not sure exactly what brought that on.

Unless something gets drastically worse, we'll just try to manage the pain until Tuesday.

Those of you who are praying for us. Let me throw a little thought your way.

It is always a good time to focus on the goodness of God. On Sunday, I had the privilege of praying for a friend of mine who had hearing impairment ever since he was in an accident. We prayed for him and God instantly restored his hearing. That was fun.
We prayed over his ear for maybe twenty seconds and his hearing was restored.

We prayed over Ramona for a lot more than twenty seconds in this last twenty four hours. We didn't see any dramatic improvements.

It's important for me as well as the rest of you prayer warriors to bring to mind testimonies of stuff God is doing. sarcomas are illegal in the Kingdom. As Christians we have authority over sarcomas.

Happy Thankgiving,
