Answered Prayer! (March 21)
“When pressure was at its peak and I came across your e-mail reminder. I did not know if anyone would reply but I thought I send an e-mail asking to pray for me.
I immediately got a response from Darcie who prayed and counseled me. I went to Confession.
I don’t know how, but from nowhere a customer came up and said he will sign the deal for 100 units. This is the largest deal anyone could get from my branch. I had previously been so scared that I would have zero sales for the month.
My whole life has changed.

For Fr. Brian, that he never lose that desire to do God’s Will, that he may have the strength and courage to accept what He asks of him, and that this surgery be the culmination of that acceptance. To read Fr. Brian’s beautiful reflection on facing open heart surgery, click here.
Answered Prayer (January)
Latest update from Fr. Brian:
“So, everyone now knows how dangerous the surgery was, how, if I had not gotten it, I would have had a year to live. Everyone knows immediate recovery was touch and go and fuller recovery has been a bit painful and challenging.
Regardless of all that, what amazes me the most, what my mom called the true miracle, and I agree with her, was the incredible outpouring of prayers and support. I was and continue to be overwhelmed by so many people interceding on my behalf to God. You realize I am merely a simple country priest right? But, He has called me to be your pastor and priest and I thank you for everything you have done for me and, as a result of all of this, I will seek, even more, and continue even harder to do His Will.
Thank you again to everyone. I truly have seen the power of prayer and what prayer can truly do in someone’s life. God bless you all!”
