Prayer Request For Brother John Stemen


Please pray for Brother John Stemen from Sarasota, FL (Pastor of ‘House of Fellowship’ in Myakka City, Florida).

Brother John was hospitalized on Sunday (February 21st) from complications caused by liver disease as well as the flu.

His health seems to be declining since then, so please continue to lift him up in prayer.

I don’t know Brother John personally, but I know his son Brother Danny Stemen who is a wonderful brother, and fellow evangelist that God has used to strengthen and encourage the young people at many of the Message Youth Camps.

We know that God is “able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us“. (Ephesians 3:20)

Praise Report – Brother Lee Flemming

Brother Lee was released from the hospital yesterday!

We were forwarded an e-mail that included the following testimony from Brother Lee’s wife:

Thank you all for your prayers and offers of help. It meant a lot to me in this difficult time. Praise the Lord for His mercy to us. The doctors were all amazed at Lee’s recovery. They did not expect him to live much less make such a quick recovery. We kept giving the Lord the praise. We told the doctors we had lots of prayers going to the throne of God. And God heard and answered.”

God heard and answered the prayers of faith.

Thank you for your prayers.

To God be the glory!

Prayer Request For Brother Lee Flemming


A prayer request was e-mailed to us this morning for Brother Lee Flemming (a believer from Georgia) who was in a bad car accident on his way home from work yesterday.

Apparently Brother Lee was not feeling well at work so he left to go home, and was only a mile from his house when he passed out and rolled his car. Emergency workers had to cut Brother Lee our of the car.
Brother Lee is on a ventilator per our last reports, and has been going in and out of consciousness.
There is video footage of his vehicle after emergency teams arrived at the following FOX news link:
The first time we visited the Fox News link there was an unoffensive Target advertisement (that is muted unless you choose to un-mute it) before the news clip played. If there is anything offensive when you visit the site please report it by commenting on the post or by e-mailing so we can remove the link.
Please lift him up in your prayers, and we will keep this post updated with any further news on his condition.
