We all need to be praying for Jim Palmer, a member of Athens First Baptist Church and an IMB missionary in Nicaragua, who has developed a health problem and needs to be transported back to the U.S. Also pray for Jim’s wife, Viola. Their son, Jeremy, gave me permission to share the following information:
At 5:30 a.m. Oct. 22., Jim collapsed. Eleven years ago Jim had a similar incident. He returned to the U.S. and had a pacemaker installed. Six months ago he had the pacemaker changed out. The most likely reason for this problem is that something has gone seriously wrong with that pacemaker. Jim is totally coherent and feels fine as long as he is laying down. However he cannot sit up. Airlines will not transport passengers that cannot sit up. This means that he will have to be care flighted back to the U.S. unless he feels better immediately.How to pray:
1. Pray for God to heal him.
2. Pray for his heart to continue to push enough blood to his brain and other vital organs.
3. Pray that they can find a way to get him back to the U.S. as soon as possible.
4. Pray that the doctors here in the U.S. can find the problem quickly and solve it.
