day 22-hello everyone. as I said yesterday our prayers need to be focused on beating the 2 infections that my currently has (one is pretty much under control and one is not). the results that they have gotten back from the bronchoscopy are negative so far (for some organisms) but they need to wait for further results (to see if other organisms grow on the culture).
In the meantime the doctor (who we all really like) has given him a pre-emptive medication because he is suspecting a very serious mold in his lungs. But, nothing is sure right now.
thank you very much!

Hi Kit,
We're all praying for you here in CA. I know the Lord is already working on your behalf and will do the BEST for you because you are His servant.
Psalm 20 reminds us that "He will answer you in the day of trouble..."
Gordon George, Bruce McCampbell Manuel Valdez, and this former wrestler send you their best wishes and prayers, just so you know who this is!

Dear Kit,
I am a member of Hope Chapel North Shore. Our kids went to Doris Todd together. I wanted to share something with you adn I have emailed you but have not heard back. What has happened over the past 3 years is remarkable. My Mom from Japan has cancer adn after 3 rounds of chemo and 2 rounds of radiation, her cancer metastisized everywhere, into every lymph node, lungs, stomach and bones. I brough her here to Maui a 2 doctors told her she had 2-3 months. I found out about a product called NCD , it came on the market in Aug of 2005 and we had nothing to lose so she took 15 drops 4 xs a day. In less than 4 weeks, she went into complete remission.She survived for 2 years this way and this past June she passed away after catching the flu and died from Organ failure, her organs had so much damage from all the chemo and radiation. This is not a cure but it removes the heavy metals, toxins and chemicals as well as balancing the body's ph to 7.2-7.4 You can check out www.liquidzeolite.org for more info. Also take a look at www.agarigold.com . I would love to share this info with you . I leave for Japan on Friday so you can email me at felicemiller@hawaii.rr.com. or call 808 870-9041. Keeping you in my prayers. aloha, Felice Miller

hey kit shelly and maisha

yesterday carlee was praying for you and thanking God for the opportunity to fast for you (a sweet introduction to fasting for carlee and manasseh - they love you so much)
as she was praying, a thought came to mind about how much Jesus loves us and how He prays for us all the time - 'ever interceding at the right hand of the Father' - and then how when He had the Lord's supper with his disciples He said He would 'never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God' and 'not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes'
so is Jesus fasting and praying for us? FOR YOU KIT LAUER!?!
wouldn't that just be like our humble, mighty Lord to not come out and say it and just do it?

and what about when he spat the wine mixed with gall (i know - gross, but He was mighty thirsty)out on the cross. was He maybe keeping His promise???

ok - this is too long but just love the thought of JESUS HIMSELF fasting and praying for you.
WOW!
You Are Awesome Lord!!!

love you so much mr. kit
we are praying for strength for you too(two) shelly and maisha.
love to all

Kit,
Me and my college group, here in Orange County, CA, are praying for you! While I was reading in Phillippians the other morning in my quiet time the Lord showed me these verses and wanted to share them with you.
"20. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21. who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself."

Phillippians 4:19
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
Our God is bigger then any cancer or disease in this world! The Lord is our Rock!

Lastly, I was looking through one of my old Bibles, and I came across this passage which was very encouraging to me.
Psalms 62:5-8
"My soul waits silently for God alone,
For my expectation is in Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be moved.
In God is my salvation ad my glory;
The rock of my strength,
And my refuge, is in God.
Trust Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us."

You are such a light, and a blessing!

Kit,
You might have some time on your hands, while you're in the hospital to ponder this dream. I had a dream about you the other night: You came running up to me and said, "Hey Ger, I just got the results back from the test. They came out great". I can't remember the rest of the dream but I think you told a hilarious joke and the punchline was 'Don't call me squirt!" Let me know when you figured it out.
Your pal,
Ger

I'm so glad you all like the doctor---and he sounds like he's a keeper if he's being proactive and starting treatment for the not-yet-confirmed mold problem.

It amazes me that, when healthy, our immune systems keep all this stuff from multiplying.....We are all trying to boost your immune system through prayer--and will continue to do so until God helps wash it all away.

I pray that your current infections are soon under control, that no new infections sneak into your body, that you are able to get some rest through frequent cat naps and that your wife and Maisha stay strong and healthy so they can continue to stand by your side.

--Lisa E.

Dearest Lauer's:

John & I are praying for your complete healing. We are praying for strength, comfort, and peace to cover each of you. Our desire is to have you fully restored. Your ministering brought me such joy, Kit--especially when I would see my son Joey come alive in His word again & again with your sharing: fully-engaged, slapping-his-knee & laughing in unison with your teachings! Thank you for sowing such a great seed for all of us! Our heavenly Lord knows how much your servant's heart loves & strengthens us! In His Merciful Name, Bonita & John Gillis

Dear Kit,

This scripture came to me three different times yesterday so I felt it worthy to meditate on.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edge sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

I love the part about how the Word pierces the marrow.

Praying for you,

Mele & Lynn
