7 May 2017

Greetings from Bolivar,

Youve probably already heard about Daves latest fall and the results of it, but just in case, here Is Sharons prayer request. 


Hi All,

I have a prayer request and some information to send you. David and I were on our way to my home in AZ.  We were half way there, when David passed out again without warning and fell.  He had a slight concussion from hitting his head, a couple of scratches, and his right thigh was extremely painful.  We decided to return to Port Angeles. The ER doctor again ran the usual tests plus a CT scan of his head and did x-rays.  No broken bones.  All the other tests were normal.  He has a tear in the groin muscle, which makes walking extremely painful.  It will heal itself, but will take several weeks. Tylenol and heat are the only treatment.  Still no reason found as to why he passed out.  He sees his primary care doc on Monday. Unfortunately, we feel it is best to cancel our reservation to the ARMS convention in July.  We were so looking forward to being there.  I have sent Roger an e-mail requesting that he cancel our reservation. Please keep David in your prayers for healing of the torn groin muscle and that the doctor will have wisdom to know what other tests to do to find out why he's passing out.

We hope to be back on the net next week.

Thank you. 73 &99s

Sharon KA7DAC, and for David W7PTL

24 December 2016

Include your prayers Please

Prayer request from ARMS member Bill Redfern, KEDQQ.  He has a friend, named Tori, who is suffering from cancer. This is a post from Tori who needs prayer more than ever. It is all in God's hands now. (Tom, AA0LF)

This is the post I have been trying to type since Wednesday. Some of you already know, to others the tears will fall, anger will set in, reality wont hit for a few days. The truth is Im not as strong as I try to be and my journey is anything but easy or glamorous. I still dont think I can openly talk about what Im typing out loud yet My appointment Wednesday showed me that there is basically no change in my cancer other than its not spreading. There is no more or no less cells in my chest cavity... All cells were scattered throughout before & now it's all concentrated together at top lobes of my lungs & base of my throat. This explains why I haven't had rib pain for a while & inflammation went down. Pro is sometimes makes easier for targeted treatment; con is now one large super cell. My liver is staying normal sized, less active cells, but not completely fine. Lupus flares are becoming more controlled. My nervous system is shot, now have heart damage & cardiac stress at a dangerous level. They said my body is literally trying to shut down to protect itself from stress. This puts my heart in overdrive trying to keep my other organs going, which in return runs down everything. I will have to go to Iowa Heart for in depth testing to determine what heart damage is stress related & what's chemical damage from the trial. This is the biggest concern right now along with my blood pressure, immunity, and nerves. My body is fried on chemo, so about the only thing left is targeted radiation which I do not believe in. Doctors said I need a break from this battle to rest, so Ill come back after the holidays. It was drilled in me that I have to feel my real emotions, give in to help, stop being stronger than I really am, try to manage my deepening depression & stand up for my feelings/body. The last words were pretty much... You didn't come this far to die from heart attack or stroke. The truth isI'm not okay...I've cried and hurt more than I ever have. Honestly, I don't really know what to do from here, but I know I can't do it alone. Those who truly know me, know that I dont show my emotions easilyIm a bottler & I dont like people to see me vulnerable. Im tapped out physically, mentally & emotionally. Why am I telling an open audience of who knows how many people my raw, real, struggle? Its because so many of you think I am super woman, that my faith is unwavering, that things are going smoothly, that I just look so good. I am sad, angry, confused, broken, questioning God, scratching the surface so that I wont drown. THAT is my reality. You see God NEVER promised being a follower of Christ would be easy; He never said he wouldnt give us anything we cant handle. This journey, this LESSON has taught me more than anything that I am NOT alone, that I must humble myself to accept His mercy and His grace. I am weak because I am a mere human, but in me lives a power stronger than ANYTHING that satan can throw my way and that is God. Things for me are going to get harder, my faith will continue to be tested, tears will continue to fall, but I know that God will not leave me or abandon me. Im not okay right now, but I have hope that in time I will be. What I need now more than ever is to be flooded with love, laughs, prayers, understanding, and comfort. I have learned the past few days that its okay for me to feel & to express my real emotions, that I CAN cry, scream, open upmost of all that I am still strong even in my weakness. I have discovered who will always come running to catch me when I fall & I hope they never give up on me. Im sure there are days when I wont want to talk or get out of bed & days when I will need to vent, but right now Im just figuring it all out. Im ready to enjoy the Christmas holiday with people who love me, bake cookies, watch movies, and make amazing memories. Thank you to those who took the time to read this all the way through. For now Ill end this Tori Update with.Lets Wind It up & Go Ice Fishin! because boy am I ready.

19 December 2016

The following prayer request is from Sharon KA7DAC of the ARMS net, for her husband Dave, W7PTL. Please join with me in prayer for Dave.

My thanks to you all.


On Friday, Dec. 9, he went for his usual daily walk alone, as I was helping at church with a Christmas outreach.  Most days we walk together.  He goes by himself when I can't go with him. He was returning home, about four blocks away, when he passed out without any warning, landing face down on the blacktop.  Evidently when he landed, he knocked himself out because when he woke up he was in an ambulance and the paramedics were working on him. As near as we can figure, he was out 15-20 min. Someone passing by had found him on the street and called  9-1-1. 


12 December 2016

This is a prayer request from ARMS member, Pastor Pat Dittert KCPJD, in Perry, Iowa.  His wife Nancy,

This is a prayer request from ARMS member Bill Redfern, KEDQQ.  He has a friend, named Tori, who is suffering from cancer.  Please pray God will comfort and be with her through her illness.

3 November 2016

Before we get to the actual prayer request, I feel it necessary to go into some detail. Four years ago, thirty year old Alison Wilson suffered a massive brain stem stroke, which resulted in the loss of her ability to speak, to use her arms, and her legs. She could only communicate by using her left pinky and thumb to type out a message. Just last month she fell ill with a bladder infection. While in the hospital for treatment, she suffered some seizures. She is presently back home, but has suddenly gone from being the sweet Christian woman that she had always been, to wanting to listen to foul music filled with cursing language.  To make matters even worse, she is now typing out, foulmouthed horrid words directed to her family. It is the thinking of her family and close friends that some sort of demon has attacked her mind. Please join with me in special prayer for Alison Wilson.

My thanks to you all, Jay


2 November 2016

The following is an update from Roy Clark about his Fathers present condition.

The following is the latest report on Stephanie. The MRI came out fine, but they are going to do more blood tests this week: however, they think her condition is the result of some kind of migraine headache.  We are still waiting to hear the latest.

My thanks to you all, Jay

We have a Prayer request from AALF, Tom Hauskins.

Tom's sister, Kathie, has been diagnosed with scleroderma. This is a rare disease that commonly involves the lungs in a variety of ways. These include interstitial lung disease, pulmonary vascular disease and bronchiolitis. These are progressive diseases that, for unknown reasons, cause scar tissue to build up in the lungs and heart and make it increasingly difficult to breathe.  There is no cure, and mortality typically occurs within 5 years of diagnosis.  At this point, we are asking for prayers for her comfort.


Thanks Tom Hauskins, AALF Midwest Section Director

From Stan, KD6WZA regarding his XYL: Virginia had the biopsy done Friday.  What the biopsy will reveal we dont know at this time but she is scheduled to have the cancerous spot on her kidney removed on Good Friday, March 25th. We were told that it will be a 4 to 6 hour surgery and she will be in the hospital for 3 to 4 days.  She was told to rest for several days and to not lift anything over 10 pounds.

Ora, KE7BF, had the liver biopsy done on Thursday. I spoke with his XYL, Connie, yesterday and she said he was not up to having visitors. He is at home. She also said it had been a hard week for them. Please continue praying for Ora and for Virginia and there families through this time of need.

Our ARMS President Emeritus, K7AQ, Charlie Cox wrote recently that his XYL, Emily is in great shape, but along with Billy (Graham) I am slipping away and looking for the Lord to return or take me to be with Him. Pray for these dear folks. Charlie will be 98 this July.

The following is a prayer request for Virginia, the wife of Stan, WD6WZA, forwarded to me by Frank, AG0M. Virginia has been diagnosed with cancer. Please join with me in prayer for Virginia. My Thanks to you all Jay.


4 March 2016

Dear ARMS brothers,

Ora e-mailed yesterday that a cat scan showed the cancer has now spread to his liver and it is 90% involved. A biopsy will be done and he will start on chemo therapy. I hope to see him this afternoon. His hope is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

Our old friend, Bob, WA7BYD, at soon to be 93 years of age has decided to retire from ham radio and his station has been given to a young ham from his church. He had planned to be on the NW ARMS Net Thursday morning for one last time, but his station has already been dismantled. Too, he is battling Melanoma and another one was recently excised.  Bob has been a mainstay in ARMS over the years and his melodious voice, sense of humor and fellowship in the Gospel will be missed. He no longer has e-mail, but you could write him or text him at (541) 476-2476. That would bless him. 73/99   Chuck

Please include Ora and Bob in your prayer lists. Thanks Jay


27 February 2016

The following prayer request from Stan KD6WZA, concerning Virginias health issue was forwarded to me by Chuck, N7AAG of the ARMS net.

We would appreciate prayer for Virginia's health.  She has been having with hurting all over and being very tired.  This morning we got a call from our doctor confirming that she has cancer in her left kidney.  It is about the size of a quarter.  She will see an urologist on Monday and we will find out more than.  Our prayer is that they will remove the cancer rather then just keeping an eye on it.

Please join in prayer for Virginia. Thanks Jay


23 February 2016

K5VSP Brother Boyce is asking for prayers, with some chills and not feeling well today. Please send up some prayers for him as we place all pain, suffering and requests in the hands of our Lord and Savior. Amen.


21 February 2016

Prayer update from Charles Winters: Jay,  I had a good visit with Ora yesterday at their home. The pain is constant in his rib cage and his visit with the oncologist Tuesday will hopefully show something from his recent bone scan that can guide a neurologist in helping with the pain. He is very weak. Connie is such a blessing and helpmeet, but I can tell it is wearing on both of them. He has gotten on CQ-100 a couple of times, but hasn't fired up his ham rig for a long time. He so appreciates the prayers from the "household of faith" - his ARMS friends and many others.  His spirit is good and that is of the Lord. 73/99 Chuck

My Thanks to you all, Jay

14 February 2016

We have a Prayer request from AALF, Tom Hauskins. As most of you know, I take ARMS member Max Finck, W0QCB, down to the local Hy-Vee to visit and have coffee. Since Sunday is Valentines Day, we decided to go on Saturday the 13th. Max seemed to be very weak and not having energy to walk, I helped her into the store, and about an hour later, she seemed to have fallen asleep. The server and I tried to wake her. The server happened to be a student nurse. Not able to wake her, the store employee went to get a wheel chair so we could get her to my vehicle. Unable to get her into the wheel chair, 911 was called. When she arrived at the hospital and after blood tests and ex-rays, she had very low blood pressure. The emergency nurse told me the paramedics thought they might have to start CPR on the way to the hospital. PTL that did not happen. After arriving at the hospital, once the IV was started her BP started to come back up. Max got a good night rest in the hospital last night. She stayed over, by the order of the doctor, so they could monitor her vitals. She seems to be doing much better at this time. Thank you for your prayers.

Greetings during this Easter season.

Ken KBQBU writes, my wife, Cora, had a very mild TIA (minor stroke) last week so that has put a lot of extra visits to medical offices the last week. She has a little memory loss but nothing else.

14 March 2015

Good net this morning.  A few things to pray and praise for this week.

WAJGT, Keith reports that his wife, Beth is getting her voice back after surgery several weeks ago.  He says that is almost back to normal, only giving problems if she talks a lot.  That has been a concern fro some time.

KGE, Bruce has some major dental work done, and asks that we pray from complete recovery.  In the meantime, he has some discomfort.

and Bernie KBL, of West Bend, Iowa has been going through some times of trial.   While not a member of ARMS, he does check in from time to time, and some of us met him at last year's get together in West, Bend, Iowa.   Bernie has had mobility problems for some time, which kept him away from his rig.  After spending some 10 days in the hospital in Ames, Iowa, the doctors seem to have found the problem and are treating it.  He is taking some antibiotics daily by IV over a six week period and it seems to be doing the job.  He joined us this morning on 3903.5.

So, praise seems to outweigh the requests today.

Psalm 96, verse 2 says:  Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day!"

73 and 99,

Roger - WZMU

9 February 2015

Some prayer requests from Roger WZMU, and thanks from him for the prayers for him and Family. Into your hands dear Lord we commend the needs of these and all people and lead us to serve you always.

A few items from today's Midwest net.

The son of Rich, WBAKV is having surgery on his ACL.  A quick recovery and return to normal is desired.


The brother of Tom, AALF, Kevin had a "mild" heart attack on Friday evening (if there is such a thing as a "mild" heart attack.)  They plan to put in a stent.  Kevin is the Assistant Pastor of a church there in Marion, Iowa.  Heart attacks are always something to be concerned about.


Dennis, KKDJ praises God that things are going well for his son, who is in the US Navy.  Pray as you see fit for this service man, that he will remain true to the Lord in the many places and circumstances in which the Lord will place him.


And Keith, WAJGT, reports that the voice of his wife, Beth, is improving, ever so slowly.  Keith's blood clot situation continues to improve, and the doctors are now regulating his medications to the right level to prevent a recurrence.


And, from our house, our grandson, Micah is pretty much recovered from his tonsil and adenoid surgery.  Your prayers were appreciated.  It would have been very easy to be discouraged and depressed during the two week recovery ordeal.  He has come out of this with a positive attitude, and looking forward to what the Lord has for him now.


Thanks much, and above all, pray that all of us will remain faithful and consistent in our daily life and witness.

73 and 99

Roger  -  WZMU


5 February 2015

Please send up prayers for the spirit to move in the heart of Rich, a good friend of Harold KI5KF. We pray the spirit will move him to the ways of the Lord as he is already doing the actions of the Lord it would seem. Bless him Lord and put the Holy spirit in his heart to follow you.


24 January 2015

Some request from WZMU Roger via Email.

Tom, AALF, reports that Maxine, WQCB has recovered from her fall earlier in the winter.  The doctor says that she is healed and can get back to a normal life, Praise the Lord!

Roger - WZMU

 WAJGT, Keith's wife Beth had surgery several days ago.  Keith reports that she has now lost the use of half of her voice-box as a complication from the surgery.  The doctor doesn't think that he nicked it in the procedure, but the problem affects Beth's voice.  Pray for a complete recover. And, Keith himself went into the Emergency Room on Wednesday with a blood clot in the calf of his leg.  He is taking a medicine to dissolve it.  Here, too, he asks for prayer for healing as he continues to care for Beth.

WAAKV, Rich's mother-in-law had knee replacement surgery.  He gives praise that the rehab has been going very well and she is now discharged from the rehab center and is home.  God is good!  

And our middle grandson, Micah is recovering from his tonsil/adenoid surgery.  For an adult, that is more of an ordeal.  Pray that he can have a positive, God-honoring attitude during his recover.  He is an active, athletic type of person, and has difficulty being cooped up, and not being able to participate in sporting activities.  

Roger - WZMU

Please pass these prayers on to our Lord and Savior for His works in all these to be accomplished to His will through the Holy Spirit. Amen

17 January 2015

Greetings to you all.

Happily, got a new computer up and running, and after much distress, got the Outlook e-mail up and running.

A couple of things to share with you today.

Pat, KCYHS's wife Nancy has been very ill.  She and Pat both need our prayers to see them through.

Keith, WAJGT's wife Beth had surgery last Wednesday and is recovering.  Pray for a complete recovery and for Keith as he helps her along that way.

Last week, I asked for prayer for my wife's mother as she was hospitalized with a collapsed lung and pneumonia.   She was released from the hospital on Monday and is doing fine.  At 98 years, she is a bit more fragile than most of us.

Our second grandson, Micah, is having surgery on Tuesday.  He is pretty anxious about it.  Pray that he will experience God's peace and that recovery will be even faster than the doctors predict. His parents are serving the Lord in the Philippines, so they aren't there with him. God can and does answer prayer!

Yours in Christ,

Roger - WZMU

Please send up prayers for all these requests and commend to the Arms of the Lord for his purposes. Blessings to all!

Some prayer requests from Roger WZMU, so please pray for all these people. Into your hands o Lord we commend all these children belonging to you for their help in this time of need.


I have a few prayer requests to share with you from the net this morning.

Pray for Bernie, KBL of West Bend, Iowa.  He is going through some back problems and suffering from pain in his leg.  Some of you might remember Bernie, who came out to meet those of us who went to the Midwest meeting last summer.

Pray for the Giles family, friends of Rich, WBAKV of Westminster, Colorado.  They have some real needs, and lets pray that the Lord would surround them with HIS love and care.

And lastly, pray for my wifes 98 year old mother, Wilma,  who lives here in Pella.  She is in the hospital recovering from a collapsed lung.  (She had the same thing about a month ago.)  Then, she apparently has a touch of pneumonia as well, which doesnt help.  We pray for healing, but she is ready to meet her Lord.  As of this evening, she was doing quite well, and might be discharged on Monday or so.

Thanks for your intercession.  And, as always pray that the Word of God will go out clearly and consistently, especially in those areas of the world where there is oppression and persecution.

Yours in Christ,

Roger - WZMU
