"Prayer Request For Serge LeClerc"
John:Please share this urgent prayer request with everyone on the forum...The Lord has called me to and blessed me with a weekly prison ministry involving male juvenile offenders. By His grace and mercy, I conduct a weekly Bible Study at Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility (PJCF) - Pendleton Indiana. This past year, I was blessed to be introduced to a gentleman by the name of Serge LeClerc. Serge personally visited PJCF this past year and spoke with 50 young men at the prison. He is a highly recognized speaker for Christ in the area of prison ministry, throughout the entire western hemisphere. You see, Serge spent his youth and a portion of his adult years in prison, until coming to Christ himself. Since then, he has been active within the Canadian government on behalf of their bureau of prisons, in addition to his speaking to literally millions of people throughout the US and Canada on behalf of Christ. I received Serge's prayer request (below) just a few nights ago..."Now as prayer request for you - and your prayer chain - and your young men - I have had 2 major surgeries, including an irreversible ileoscopy - during an emergency appendectomy - they discovered cancer - aggressive tumors in one part and 7-8 inoperable tumors in my colon. I have just had my 3rd chemotherapy treatment - every second Wednesday - this past 12th and the next on the 26th - etc......need lots of prayer. Just 6 months into a new marriage with a 12 year old daughter and a 14 year old son - would like to stick around some......."Blessings...............Serge -- Isaiah 40:28-31Please pray for Serge's healing. Pray that the Lord will deliver him from this affliction, and comfort himself and his family. Pray too, that the Lord would guide all medical decisions, and certainly keep any evil influence away from Serge, his family, and this situation in general.Thank you all for your prayer support!!YBIC,Bill B.
