Just want to praise our God for this special day that we received confirmation that our NZ citizenship has been granted! We praise God for another affirmation that Aotearoa is where He wants us to be. To God be all glory and God defend New Zealand!
Please can you pray for Andrew who had an accident several years ago while working offshore due to being given wrong medication by Doctors and now suffers from bad anxiety and panic due to nerve damage and spinal in juries. He needs to have a specialist proscribe the right medication but isn't getting much help but we know that our Lord can heal thank oho I all.
I am the prayer co-coordinator For the Waiheke campus and I recieved an urgent request this morning. There is a young lady in our congregation who is suffering from a condition where her platelet count is very low and she is in a lot of pain at the moment and also very lethargic. Her mother asks that we pray for wisdom from God as to what they can do to treat her. She is under specialist care but it is not doing much good.
First off, I want to say thank you for streaming your worship service online. I used to go to Windsor when I lived in New Zealand. Ever since I came back to the US, my body has been slowly shutting down. I use a wheelchair now and I’m mostly bedridden at this point. I’m also in the hospital a lot and hooked up to IVs because my digestive system doesn’t absorb anything properly. It has been hard to get out to church in person even before coronavirus hit. Even with coronavirus being so bad here, you’d be surprised at how bad most churches are at streaming. It’s one reason why I’m still streaming your worship services. The options here are not so great. Most of my friends who are Christians here are from the Dysautonomia support group and they are alienated from church too because of not being well enough to consistently go in person, and if you aren’t well enough to go in person, churches don’t care about you. If there is one big miracle that you could pray for in my life, what I need most is for disability to finally come through (it takes years to come through here and I personally know multiple people who lost their homes and everything while waiting for disability to come through, and two friends were stuck waiting five years before they got it). I finally have Medicaid (very limited poor people’s government insurance), but it won’t cover home health care and the IV fluids that ideally I need multiple times per week. Right now I end up going to the hospital when my symptoms get unbearably bad and it would help to get IV fluids without waiting until it is a hospital-requiring emergency. Also, having disability means having income again, which means I can move out on my own again with my cats, and I can’t be coerced into being okay with abuse by family. Disability doesn’t really pay enough to survive here, and a lot of people leave the US to live off of it. I have been researching places I could go if the backpay is enough. To be honest, since a really severe case of shingles and long term high levels of stress were my triggers for Dysautonomia (although I may have had this since age 14 and didn’t know it), I think leaving could improve a lot of my symptoms. Even if leaving doesn’t help my symptoms, healthcare is more affordable pretty much anywhere other than here. I want to be able to work again even if all I can survive is part time, and you can’t survive on most full time work here if you’re single, so surviving on part time work here is really impossible even if I can have any symptoms improve. I want to be able to get whatever healthcare is necessary to be able to get well enough to work again. If I’m stuck here, there is no hope of getting the medical help I need or being able to survive financially even if by some miracle, I get well enough to work again. If you don’t believe me about how bad it is here, you should do a google search on minimum wage in the US and google how much you need to earn to afford an apartment in the US. I want to be able to go somewhere where I actually have a chance of survival. I have no hope here.
Please keep Theresa (daughter) in prayer - needs to return to South Africa. Pray that we get the correct information (a lot of conflicting info between SA & NZ at present). And that she will be safe on her travels and her arrival back in SA. Immigration has notified her that her visitors visa will not be extended. Thank you
