Help Pastor Thomas with Cancer Exp

$23,641 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 125 people in 22 months

The Board of Elders of the Orange County Singles for Christ Church needs your help.  Our Senior Pastor Thomas Rose, was recently diagnosed with Stage III Colon cancer and is currently undergoing treatment for it. Right now he is recovering from colon surgery, where they removed 10" of his colon from where the cancer had been found, he also continues to fight thru the resulting neuropathy that comes from the 6 months of Chemotherapy treatment that Pastor Thomas went thru. 

Pastor Thomas only receives small financial compensation for his service to Orange County Singles for Christ Church, and relies very heavily on the ability to make a living for Pam and him.  Because of his neuropathy issues, he is not able to return to full time work anytime soon and may not be able to return to this job for months, due to ongoing treatment.  He does have basic health insurance, but there are additional living and medical expenses that Kaiser Care and Covered California will not cover.

What we are asking from you is to pray for our pastor that God will bring total healing from this battle with cancer and that his long term recovery is successful. Furthermore, if you can help in any way by financial means, your donation will be applied as a tax deductible donation via the church, provided you include your name and email address so that we can contact you (this will be handled via this site and we will keep a running total via this site as well).

If you choose to send your donation anonymously, you can do that here as well, or send it to the church at…

Dear Friends and Family,

Well, this life-journey is a loonngg one! Thank you so much for your amazingly generous and gracious financial gifts and prayers and continuing to walk with me in this journey! Prayers are everything God Hears, God Listens!

As I write this update, I ponder the reasons why God allows things to happen. Two dear friends with Cancer have recently gone to be with the Lord. One Dear Friend died yesterday while undergoing chemotherapy. Why God allows him to pass to heaven, and I get healed…. I am left to ponder, wonder, reflect, filled with thankfulness, yet, sorrow over losing friends.

I got thru my chemo treatments and now continue to endure the POST Chemo treatments, blood tests, scans, biopsy’s etc. (costs are about $1k a month)
My prayer request is that Jehovah-Rapha (The God who Heals) would heal me of the neuropathy that is in full grip of my hands and feet. I feel nothing as the nerves in my hands and feet were killed by the chemo. I can walk for about 20 minutes then I need to sit down as the pain is intense in my feet. A combination of numbness, pain, shooting pain, swelling, etc, all at the same time. What we take for granted, getting dressed, walking etc, is an adventure with neuropathy. The recovery process is 1 year to 5 years, IF AT ALL. There is no treatment for chemotherapy neuropathy, (I appreciate the constant flow of suggestions on how to treat neuropathy, however, chemo induced neuropathy is way different) only over time, the body regenerates my nerves!!

There is always the constant worry of cancer recurrence, but I am learning to trust God for today, as tomorrow is a promise to no one. We all walk by faith!

I am MOST grateful that my type of cancer is treatable, however, the doctors must stay on top of what is going on in my colon. I have a DNA dysfunction in my colon, that is not curable! (at least in human terms, God can do anything!)

So please be praying that my Blood Cancer Markers continue to stay flat, the neuropathy would heal, and my repeated colonoscopies will find little deterioration! And that there are many more fruitful years of service in God's Kingdom!

Blessings to you and again, thank you so very much for your prayers, financial support and words of encouragement!
