Glenn Bechthold’s wife

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.

  3. My prayers are with you, Donna, and I strongly regret the trial you are going through. Thankfully, God is still on His Throne. My prayers are also for Glenn. I know how difficult it is when a loved one is afflicted.
    May you soon both rejoice at your healing.

  4. Our prayers are certainly with you. We have seen what GOD has already done, is doing and will do. We thank and praise HIM. HE is faithful and desires good things for HIS children. Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. HE cares for those who trust HIM. What a wonderful promise. GOD bless and keep you in HIS loving care.

  5. Dear Glenn and Donna,
    My wife and I will be in prayer for you both as we wait on God for Donna’s needs to be Blessed in every way! Our Love is sent to you, David and Linda Husmann.

  6. Glenn & Donna,
    Our love & prayers are with you. We can identify with you & know that God, our Father, is greater than anything we can encounter. And because He always has a purpose and is always with us, we trust Him with you!

  7. Dear Glen and Donna,
    I was very sad to hear of your current health struggle. I still have fond memories of when you babysat our children in Pasadena years ago so we could take a brief vacation. Praying for God’s mercy and healing, and comfort in this stressful time for the whole family.
    Love,
    Larry Dietrich
