Prayer request for Texas Baptist in Nicaragua


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.

    Jim and Viola posted the following great news to their web site Thursday, Oct. 25:

    “We have just been able to get on the internet and have read your many prayers and greetings. Jim is doing so much better. He is sitting up without dizzy spells or fainting. The cardiologist has ruled out any problems with Jim’s heart or pacemaker. Today we saw a neurologist who has ordered additional tests. He thinks the episode Jim had on Monday may be related to an inner ear condition call Labyrinthitis. The additional tests has not showed anything significant. At this point we are grateful Jim has regain his balance and is feeling fine. There appears to be no major diagnosis to explain his blackouts. We continue to trust the Lord and hope to return to Nicaragua soon. We covet your prayers as we wait to get clearance from the IMB doctors.”

    Please pray for my son Robert as he is really going though some trial and tribulations. He has been put in jail to serve three months and we are hoping he will get on the two for one program that allows him to get out early for good behavior. He has given his life to the Lord and wants a second chance so please pray that God will give him this miracle and open many doors for us. It just seems like we haven’t received any light from a bad situation and God says he will open doors, so please pray to help my son have the grace to handle being incarcerated and pray that as he reads the bible in jail that God will reveal the mysteries of Christ. My son has met some very interesting people while in there and I think God wants him to witness to these people. One guy used to be a youth minister and got hooked on drugs his name is James and he is in jail and has to go to a center to try and get off drugs, so please keep James in your prayers as well. Robbie got to witness to him and I am sure James witnesses to my son. People that are incarcerated need prayer and encouragement to help them get through each day. Pray that my son Robert will have Gods favor as Joseph did when he was in prison. Pray that my son will get out soon and start his ministry to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This has been a time of focus for my son and I know he will complete God’s will while he is free from jail and while he is in jail. Please ask that God will be his strength and comfort while he is in jail and out free. Robert’s Mom

    In the city I’m living in (Seattle), there are now so many homeless people! Please pray that God will give me a heart that’s where His heart is at. Pray that God will show me what to do—how to reach out and be His hands and feet. I feel handicapped, because I don’t have a car and I’m staying at someone else’s place, and my own life is in transition. Please pray that God will protect me, provide for me and give me stability through this recession, so I’ll have the strength to reach out. Pray that God will give me the inner strength, and the passionate desire to reach out to His people, as well as wisdom, guidance, provisions and support. Pray for guidance in sending out prayer requests to cover this.

    I just wanted to let all you’ll know my son passed his test. All Glory goes to God!!!! Praise God and all you wonderful people that prayed with us. Thank You Thank You Thank You. God Bless each and everyone that took the time for us. MOM

    Please pray for my son probation officer Donna. She is a procratinator and we are waiting on her to go see the Judge to request my son get out of jail early, but she keeps making excuses about going to the court for us. She said she would go for us so we need prayers that she will go and request his freedom. Everytime I call her she has such a hateful attitude towards me. I just wish she would do what she told us she would do. Thanks for your prayers.

    Please pray with me for my Mom. My Mom had a hip replacement about two weeks ago and she was doing great with her recovery and rehab but the day they were going to release her they realized her incision was leaking fluid (which I believe is the nurses fault) so they took a sample for testing and now it is infected and she has to have surgery (not sure of the surgery date either today April 21 or April 22) again to clean this infection out. Please pray for better care from the nurses and a successful surgery and a quick recovery as she has been through so much. On the right leg where she had the hip replacement she also has a artificial leg, so it makes things a little harder. Please pray for us. Thanks and God bless! Carol (Ruth’s daughter)

    Please Pray that Christ Will Purify Carey’s Heart once
    So that she can return to Christ Jesus. She has turned her
    back on God. She is a Christian.
    God Bless
