One of our fellow posters is having a terrible time and needs our prayers and support.

Tennesseedreamin' is suffering from terminal cancer and is having terrible financial troubles as well. Please lift her up to the Lord (or just send out good vibes or prayers to whomever you pray to) for her to find a solution to her problems.

This request is very serious, along with being very urgent.

Thanks so much.

I posted a message to her earlier today, but it seems the thread was deleted...?

I can't fathom any church not helping her in some way. I'm absolutely speechless about this situation. I can truly understand why she is so disillusioned with people. It just boggles my mind that anyone should be in her position in this day and age. And the fact that Christians don't help her is mind numbing to me. I just don't know how I could personally help her. I simply don't have the means - but my gosh, where is the Catholic Church in all this? Where is the Lutheran Church? Where are the Methodists? Where are the Presbyterians? Where are the mega-churches that supposedly have so much money that they can fill up the gas tanks of rich Cadillac owners and build multi-million dollar church buildings complete with fountains, coffee bars and sound systems? It doesn't matter if TennesseeDreamin' belongs to one of those denominations or not. The fact is, they should help her regardless.

I'm going to have to shut up, because this really steams me.

Heavenly Father, please reach down and take care of this dear person.

I don't know much more about her situation than what is posted here, but she is definitly in both my thoughts and prayers. Medical expenses are a real tragedy in the US and I pray she gets all the help physical, mental, monetary, and spiritual that she needs!

I am sure some churches would help if they were aware. I don't know her much or her situation. She lives in California apparently. For someone sick like that, I would think they would qualify for medicaid and other programs, but I don't know exactly how California might differ from Texas.

Well, I didn't mean to lump all the churches together. I don't know who she may or may not have contacted. I'm sorry. It's just that stuff like that gets me riled up.

P.S. Whoever repped me with those comments, I understand what you're saying. My impression from her original thread (which was deleted) was that there was nowhere she was able to turn to find help, and that no one cared. If it was strictly JW's she turned to, I still can't imagine her being turned away like that.
