Prayer and candle request for a sick friend 3/9/2011 7:30 AM (permalink)
I wanted to ask a prayer request for a good friend of mine, a fellow member of my church. His name's Gardner Russell.

Grandma told me he was really sick the other day and I've been really worried. I've been praying for him ever since I heard, but I wanted to start a candle group for him here too.
 
I started a group here:

      ps. I read his bio on your link . . .
      he must be very beloved by many people
      for the work he has done all over the world . . .
      always for others.
      everything counts...

            When we got back from Gainesville, we found out my friend had had another mini-stroke. He's back home and recovering now, but I'm still really worried.

                    I wanted to leave an update on his condition I found tonight:
                    ============================================
                    Before we had to go to Gainesville this last time, I left a post on his wife's facebook page:
                     
                    "Happy birthday, Sister Russell. Grandma wants to say "We're all praying for you and Gardner." 
                    I'm praying nonstop for you and Brother Russell."
                     
                    On April 4th, she left a reply: 
                    "Kelly: Just got home from the hospital with Gardner---my birthday present.
                    He is doing well, will need some speech therapy, but walking well. Your prayers are being answered. Love ya' Dorothy"

                            On the 11th, I left a post calling Gardner Russell 'Brother Russell' and his wife, Dorothy, 'Sister Russell'. This might be confusing to some people, so I wanted to clarify something: 
                            In our faith (LDS), the men are commonly addressed as "brothers" and the women are known as "sisters."  I chose to be baptized as a young woman and grew up in the church, so Ive always called them "brother" and "sister" since I've known them.
                             
                            Brother and Sister Russell came over today and visited us. He's walking a little slower, but he's talking okay. I can tell the strokes have affected him, but he's able to do things by himself like walk and talk, just a little slower than before. I know all of the prayers asked for him have been answered.
                             
                            Thank you, everyone! Thank you so much! :)

                                  How nice it was that you could have a visit with Brother Russell,
                                  and see for yourself how well he is doing.
                                  May there be many more
                                  with love . . .

                                    I am happy and relieved to hear your friend is doing better; recovery takes time, especially with strokes. I will continue to pray for him. :)
                                     
                                    You are a good friend to him and his wife Kelly. bless you!

                                      I don't know why, but I've been really worried about Brother Russell for the past four days. The last time I saw him at church he seemed to be doing great, but I'm still worried. Could people please light candles for him?

                                      Brother Russell's 91 now, and I know with as strong a faith as he has, he has a special place prepared for him when Heavenly Father finally calls him home. I know when he goes home, though, his family and the rest of us are going to be going crazy with grief. I hope he's okay.

                                        Dear Kelly,
                                        I understand your concern and will light a candle for Brother Russell.
                                        With Love,
                                        Jude
                                        Love is the only way
