PostSubject: Blind Minister   Mon May 07, 2012 6:31 pm

Hello All!
My hometown church in Dardanelle, Arkansas is needing prayers for the minister, Steve Reeves. Bro. Reeves had some eye problems a few years ago and is already blind in one eye. He has just recently noticed the other eye getting worse. In the course of the past few weeks he has lost sight in that eye as well. He and his wife who is a school teacher just moved there last spring eager to minister to this church.
He gave a very tearful prayer request Sunday and needs so many prayers as doctors are trying so hard to find a way to restore his sight. Please pray for his health as well as his strength in dealing with this change. He has done so much for this church in the short year he has been there. God opens windows when we don't even see the walls holding them, so I feel Steve is there for a very special reason.

I can't help but think of Mary Ingalls and how she overcame so much.


Thanks...I will update as I know more.

No Vanesa, I don't know exactly what his problem is....I believe its Macular Degeneration. Usually that affects older adults, but he is only 52. He has worn thick glasses for years so he must have always had something wrong and its developed into this.
I will try to find out for sure though. Above all, pray Doctors can do something for him. Thanks!!

UPDATE! God has answered prayers!! Steve went to several doctors and with the help of a very special team they did a lazer type surgery to restore almost everything back to normal in the " good" eye. His sight came back very slowly, but he says its better than its been in years. He said this was a huge test in faith, and thanks everyone for the constant prayers. The doctors only gave him 20% chance of seeing ANYTHING, so it was your prayers that made it all happen. God is so good. Thanks so much, and please continue to pray his sight stays healthy.
