Update on Art’s Health

We are happy to be able to report that Art has had a relatively good week with no painful outbreaks of the auto-immune disease, infections, or need for another transfusion. He has even been able to walk twenty or thirty yards to the prayer meetings and community center. On the other hand, his blood sugar is unstable even with insulin and a strict diet, and they are working on getting it under control. His wife Inger has quit her job in order to dedicate herself to caring for him, preparing the exacting diet, and seeing that he takes his medications on schedule.

Prayer Points:

  • Healing of diabetes. Stabilization of his blood sugar within the normal range.
  • Complete healing of polyarteritis nodosa.
  • Continuing freedom from outbreaks.
  • Continuing freedom from infections. Production of sufficient red corpuscles and hemoglobin.
  • Revelation of any spiritual issue that could be giving the enemy a foothold .

Praise Point:

  • This was the most stable week Art has had for a while. So let’s praise God for that, and continue to press the enemy back in Jesus’ name!

Sincerely, Ben Israel Fellowship

On behalf of the Katz family (David, Christina, Ariel, Keith, Mary Jo, Natalie and grandchildren), I want to thank you for your prayers and concern for my husband during his illness. He is still not well, and we do all we can to care for him. For now, I have quit my job – perhaps for good. Pappi (Art) cannot be left alone for very long, and if I have to go out for some reason, the folks here at Ben Israel help out. Sometimes I get overwhelmed and even grumpy! But then I remember how much I have to be grateful for – because “there but for the grace of God go I.” I could have been in Pappi’s place instead after a stroke two years ago as well as arthritis. Yet, I am the one that can run around and do all kinds of things – so I am thankful that I am still able. Again, on behalf of us all – thank you! Lovingly, Inger Hava Katz
