Emergency pray request for Wes Bentley of Far Reaching Ministries

wes I received this email from my friend Rob Douglass of Saving Grace World Missions. Please join in prayer for good friend Wes Bentley...

Please pray for my close friend and mentor, Wes Bentley of Far Reaching Ministries. Wes has contracted a severe case of malaria. He is struggling for his life in a hospital in Southern California. He is awake but his fever is extremely high and he is unable to communicate. Wes' colleague told me on the phone, "Please pray for Wes. His fever rises and falls and at one point we thought we were going to loose him." The doctors fill that he is infected with malaria and some other illness that they cannot pinpoint yet.

Please pray:image
God would spare Wes' life.
Doctors would have wisdom.
Comfort for his family.

If Wes could speak he would echo Paul's words in Acts 20:24, "But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."
God bless you
Pastor Rob Douglass

Thanks for posting this prayer request! God has heard and decided to spare Wes. He has just been released from the hospital and is in need of a lot of rest and continued prayer for strength and healing. Thanks again. Jon Langley, FRM Missionary in East Africa.

Before I was born, God healed my dad of a malignant form of malaria. Had he not been healed, I would not be here. God IS able!
