Hello, this is Faith on the Farm. I’m having a wonderful, yet busy week. First, I would like to tell y’all how thankful I am for all of your support. Now, I am going to share some stats and facts, and then I am going to share a big prayer request. Please, if you don’t have time to read through all of this, skip to the prayer request part.

That is a lot of countries!!! I think it is so cool to know that this blog post is being read across the world, in countries I barely know of (like Paraguay, which is by the way, in South America, to the best of my knowledge)! Thanks for all you guys do to help!
My Prayer Request
My dear friends, the real purpose of this post, other than to thank you for being so wonderful, is to ask you to pray. I really want to ask for you guys to pray for a certain lady at my church. She has 3 children under six, one of which is still a baby. She was just recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has metastasized into her liver and lymph nodes. Our church is really praying for her, and I want to ask you to pray for her to. She is very well-loved, and her husband is also our worship leader at my church. Please ask God to heal her, and to help her and her family, as they go through this hardship. Thank you!
[Update: Rachel has been healed of cancer! We are so thankful! She still has more chemo and other treatments to get any remaining undetected cancer out of her system. She could still really use your prayers! Visit her blog at racheldye.com to hear recent updates.]
“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea” -Psalms 46:1-2 (ESV)
