A member of the church that my wife and I attend appears to be in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Bob, whom I have mentioned here before, is a career FBI agent, a happily married father of five, and one of the best teachers and layman apologists I have ever heard. I will let the e-mail I received tell you his status:
The doctors want to do another round of treatment. This will take about 3 weeks. He said he would not go through with another treatment except for his children. The doctors would give him 10 days to 2 weeks to live if he does not continue with a treatment as the cancer will return with a vengeance. So, he is willing to do more treatment. Even at that, he has 6 months. One of Bob’s brothers will go to AR to be with him this week and Dick Garner, a former member, will be with him a week from Sunday. Bob asked for prayers for his physical strength, but also for his mental stamina to stay strong. He wants to fight the fight, but the pain is so bad that he would like it to pass him by.
For almost two years Bob has fought a hard fight against his illness so that he could be around for his wife and children. Believers, please lift this brother and his family up in prayer, along with the doctors tending to him.
