Many have been praying for Pastor Howard Mayes of the Clinton, MD, Grace Brethren Church, who has had a lengthy hospitalization for a mysterious illness. There is good news–this report was received Easter Sunday evening:
After nearly six weeks in the hospital and rehab facility, I am grateful to be home expecting full recovery. It was great to be able to attend our Easter Musical Drama this morning.
I have been greatly blessed by the tremendous outpouring of prayer so many shared in my behalf. The doctors are still perplexed–believing that an unidentified virus infection struck my entire system and suggest that we may never know much more detail. It was frightening at best and “life-threatening” at worst.
Thanks for helping me communicate my appreciation to all who prayed. I know that the Lord still has more for me to do. –Howard
