Prayer Request for Gerda Bludau

Dear Brethren and Friends,

Please pray for my 98-year old aunt, Gerda Bludau (Gaggi). She took a bad fall right in front of our gate one week ago Friday the 27th, at 6:pm. At the hospital, she needed 2 stitches on her head and has scrapes and bruises. CT Scan and X-Rays miraculously showed no breaks or internal bleeding. Leon anointed her immediately after the fall. She does not remember falling down, even now a week later. She is in pain and is still pretty sore all over.

I had taken her to the doctor the evening before to see why her legs were so swollen, which they still are over a week later today the 6th of March. She is still walking, but not so long and not at her same previous pace. Her memory is fading very quickly. Her dreams/nightmares are very terrible—which has been an ongoing problem for years. To top all this off, I had to take her to the hospital again, because she had not gone to the bathroom for 6 days. Please pray God intervenes quickly so that we all can partake of the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread in both Thailand and Burma. God knows all details and all of our needs, even before we ask—and we need help so very much now.

Yesterday, Leon, Gaggi, and I looked at a small facility where she would be able to stay for the time we are gone. It seems quite nice and the personnel are very knowledgeable, kind, and also speak English well. She did not seem to mind when I told her that we are looking into this for our time away—and that I would come back for her upon our return. Please pray that this too will go very well for her. Our son Bronson and his family of 4 children will be able to visit her as they live very near.

God be with all of you. We pray for all of you.

In love,
Gloria

Update on Leon Sexton (Angiogram) 3

Hello Fellow Laborers,

I am at home and resting after a day in the hospital. The surgeon performed an angiogram and took pictures of my arteries and heart. The only problem he found was called “Trivial Coronary Arterial Disease”, with no intraluminal narrowing, which means there was very minimal plaque buildup in two areas, and no need to continue with an angioplasty.

He also found that the arteries of my arms were very small in diameter, therefore they had to stop the angiogram by going through my right arm, and immediately proceeded to go through the groin.

He recommended I take blood thinning and plaque medicine since there is an irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, and diabetes. He wants me to lose weight, eat better to bring down the LDL cholesterol, exercise more, and try to avoid stress.

What I need is help from God to do all these things. I need to keep up my health to accomplish the work God has for Gloria and me in this part of the world.
We are planning a trip to Burma for the Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread and my health has to be optimal.

I am thrilled that the doctor found no muscle damage caused by the minor heart attack I had right after the Feast of Tabernacles. But he warned me that I am a prime candidate for a future stroke or heart attack unless I change my ways.

Please continue your prayers for Gloria and for me. The work over here is growing and we need to get these young men and women up to speed to serve in God’s harvest fields. The elders MUST train the young to continue the work started by so many before us.

It is interesting that two of our present students are grandchildren of Saw Lay Bey, a long-time pastor in the Burma Church of God from way back in old WCG days. God’s work continues in S.E. Asia and our little Legacy Institute school plays a key role in building for the future of the Church.

Remember James 5:16—The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

I will talk to you again soon. Serving Our Lord Jesus,

Update on Leon Sexton (Angiogram) 2

Dear Friends and Fellow laborers,

I go into the hospital tomorrow, March 3rd, to finally have the angiogram and possible angioplasty performed. Please pray that all goes smoothly and successfully. Something is causing my heart to experience arrhythmia. This has been going on since the Feast of Tabernacles. I need a strong heart to complete whatever it is that Our Lord Jesus wants us to do over here in Asia.

I appreciate your heartfelt prayers for Gloria and myself during this time.

Serving the Great Messiah,

How Y’all Doin’?

I guess I was in Texas too long. It just didn’t feel right over here in Thailand at Legacy without some cows. So, guess what? We got us some cows!

The plan is to raise cows for food and manure. We started with two cows and 2 calves. These are called “Wua Lampoon” or Lampoon Cows. Lampoon is a province just south of Chiang Mai. These cows are native to Southeast Asia and are red in color. Nice looking cows, don’t you think?
