Please Pray

I just got off of the phone with a dear friend of mine Claudia. I am so scared for her and her family. I wanted to share this with you guys so that you could be praying for her.
She has been struggling with depression for almost 1 1/2 years now. This week she has become suicidal. She called me to let me know that they were going to be admiting her into the clinic for a while. She wanted to make sure that I checked in with her family and especially her husband.
It was a very sad and wierd conversation. I still feel very "yucky".
The bad thing is that most of the Christians for their church have headed out of town. Her mother just flew to the states this last week so spend the summer with Claudias brothers. Two of the other families that they are very close to have gone to visit their families.
Our AIMers will be landing in two hours. We are going to be pretty busy this week getting things going for them but we are definately going to need to be with this family a lot. Please pray for us to be good with our time and make sure we don't neglect anything because of the over load of things to get done.
Claudia is the lady in the white shirt top left. Please be praying for her and her family. Thanks.

We are anxious to hear about your AIMers, and their services, think you will really enjoy them. (Hope) I attended a care giver workshop on depression last week. The young, soon to be Dr. told of many over the counter pills that are so good for depression. I asked about research on singing, etc. He said it was a known fact that exerc. was one of the best things to do for depression, but that no one was interested in that kind of! I will remember to pray for your friend....Vicki

We will pray for you, her family and all your work this week. God is in control, as I know you know. Just remember He has this timing for a reason. Depression is so scary; I know from personal experience. We will pray.
