Many of you know Susan Perlman, one of the founding staff of Jews for Jesus, who serves as the first assistant to our executive director. Please pray for Susan, as she had a cancerous tumor removed a few weeks ago. Praise God, all tests indicate that the cancer did not spread. Yet because of the type of cancer, the followup to Susan’s surgery is a very strong course of chemotherapy. She began treatments this week, and they will last for four months. Please pray for full healing and health for Susan, and also that the treatments will not cause so much fatigue/illness that she is unable to do the ministry that she loves and is called to. Pray for all of us to be able to adjust to any changes she may need to make in her schedule in the next few months.
