This letter just came from Travis Snode, who is a missionary supported by Windsor Hills Baptist Church.Â Pastor Vineyard is a great man and has been greatly used of God for the cause of World Evangelism.Â His church is probably one of the most world evangelism minded and hearted churches that I have ever heard of.Â Please read this, share it, and pray for him.

My tumor turned me upside down again Friday night. I am in Mercy Hospital.
The Lord willing, they are going to take this tumor out and my small
intestines. When they do, there are 3 possibilities:
1. They will put me back together. I will lose some weight but
continue to function better than I have been at the present time.
2. They will put me back together and watch me for a while, but
if my digestive system does not function properly, allowing me to maintain
my weight, they will install a tube into an artery or vein in front of my
right shoulder whereby 5 times a week, on 5 days, I will give myself 2200
calories each time directly into the blood, and continue to be able to
function as I am presently – with the only liability of having to take the
additive items and giving myself the additive calories.
3. I go to Heaven to be with Jesus.
So, it is a win, win, win situation.
Please pray for me as I definitely need prayer at this time. Pray that the
surgeon can get after this thing ASAP.
May God’s richest and best blessings be yours.
I am humbly, sincerely, and gratefully, your friend and servant,
James A. Vineyard
