Here is a prayer request for Donna Bechthold, wife of Glenn Bechthold who formerly pastored one of GCI’s congregations in the San Diego, California, area.
In 2009, Donna was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Then in 2011 she had a bout with bacterial meningitis, resulting in a coma that she miraculously pulled out of. She had been holding her own for a while, but just after Christmas 2015, she began having cognitive difficulties and went to the hospital for tests. An MRI revealed five tumors in her brain that could be melanoma. The largest is about the size of a grape (2.5 cm). She started a round of five radiation treatments on January 20. The treatments are going well, and on January 28 a PET scan appeared to be clear. One more treatment was to have occurred on February 1, then they will wait two months and have another MRI. Please pray for Donna, Glenn and the whole Bechthold family.
