Pastor Ted Ertle has been dealing with complications during his heart surgery recovery, including leg infection, congestive heart failure, and blood clots in the lung. He has also lost the use of a portion of his heart. Ted and his wife, Rose, are in their new home at Maranatha Village, 207 Timothy Rd., Sebring, FL 38870. They thank you for your prayers and ask that you continue to pray.

Pastor Don LeMaster, Brooklyn, N.Y.,  thanks you for your prayers on his behalf during his recent round of surgeries. On July 14 he had lung surgery to remove a cancerous sarcoma from his right lung and then on Sept. 2 he had surgery to remove a pituitary tumor. Both surgeries were successful, and in Don’s words, “I am feeling wonderful.” He plans to resume his pulpit ministry Sept. 27.

Pastor Dale and Gwen Schatz, Bella Vista, Ark., are both recovering from surgery. Pastor Dale had a malignant colon mass removed, for which the recovery has been slow and painful. He is able to eat a little better each week. Gwen has had her surgery site aspirated twice where a benign chest wall mass was removed. Please continue to their recovery.

Please pray for the following pastors who have recently lost their spouses due to death:

Wayne Booker (Carolyn), former IL-MO representative, 111 Diamond Ridge Ave., Canton, GA 30114

Doug Keenan (Stephanie), 210 Woods Dr., Albion, IN, 46701
