In a phone conversation last night, my friend Ben Baldus asked me to ask you to pray for him. He was very specific and said to use his name.
Here's why: He's going through a rugged regimen of infusion therapy for a really nasty infection that if left unchecked could take his limbs and his life.
Side effects of the therapy are daunting, to say the least, leaving him with severe chills and extreme tiredness. All the while, he has a demanding day job as head of advocacy at the Michigan Capitol for Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.
As a pastor, he also does supply work for various churches in mid-Michigan.
Pray that God gives him the stamina for the final round of the chemo-therapy and that this virulent bug inside his body be stopped.
