Prayer request

My cousin Millie Bakri called me and asked me to send out a prayer request for her son Martin. He is in the Mont. Co. jail. She believes the serious felony charges are false. From what I know of Martin, he is a good, hard working young man. Regardless, Millie, Martin and family need our prayers that the truth will be sorted out quickly and that God will mercifully use this crisis for good. Thank you. Sherrie Miller

Elderly rip-offs – scam artists in town

Thought you all might like to know this info.

Subject: FW: Elderly rip-offs

Good morning!

The e-mail below was sent from a Fifth District officer, who investigated a crime involving suspects posing as Dayton Police Detectives. I ask that you share this information with as many people you know as possible, especially the elderly. An on-duty Dayton Police officer, no matter what rank, no matter what they are wearing, MUST provide identification upon demand. If someone wearing civilian attire comes to your home, claiming to be a police officer, ask to see their badge AND identification card. Badges can be obtained at any uniform supply company and many badges look alike. An identification card will bear the photo of the officer, along with their name, rank and signature of the Chief of Police, Richard Biehl. If the person claiming to be a Dayton Police detective does not posses BOTH pieces of identification, do not let them in you home. Call the police telephone number, 333-COPS, and inform the person who answers of the situation. The person answering will be able to quickly determine whether an actual police detective is at your residence. If they cannot verify that a Dayton Police Detective is at your home, uniform officers will be dispatched immediately to your home to look into the matter. And remember, no police detective or officer will EVER ask anyone to provide funds to further an investigation. Thank you!!

We have a scam team in town pretending to be Dayton Police Detectives and stealing from elderly victims. So far we know of 2 hits in D5 yesterday and 2 in D3 last night.

Yesterday they were in an 88-90 white Land Rover. They parked around the corner from the victims home. A BF late 30’s to early 40’s wearing a brown 2 pc suit 5’8-5’9 got out and approached first. The driver, a BM late 30’s 5’7 wearing a Grey suit and blue shirt followed her. The targeted two houses that are neatly maintained and landscaped (they look like retiree homes). They were rebuffed at the first house and then went across the street.

They presented themselves as Dayton Police Detectives and were allowed in. They showed a mug shot of a BM asking if he was there. The victim said no and they asked if anyone else was home. When she said no they told her they were investigating a theft from a bank of $14,000 and that they knew the money was in the house. They then got intimidating and searched the victim’s purse dumping it out. The victim tried to call 911 but the male wouldn’t let her pick up the phone. They searched the dining room and tried to get the victim to go upstairs claiming the money was hidden there. When she refused they left. They got no money but did score $400 in D3 last night. They never showed police credentials and the victim was too intimidated to ask.

My victim couldn’t give a good description but I had a neighbor witness that could. He can also ID the suspects.

Det Galbraith requests that we do theft or attempt theft reports on these for now. If anyone gets better descriptions please share it.

COH Budget

Hi,

Please post this to the BLOG:

COH Family we are looking at the budget for 2011 and more specifically for our “Capital Expenditures”. These would be one-time expenses that whatever is purchased should last a while. A good example is exterior signage, or a wireless microphone. If you know of a need for the church, please let Pat Prenger know of the need. Preferably email him at “pat.prenger” with your list, or write down a note and hand it to him in church. Thanks for your help!

Prayer Update – William

From this morning…

The spinal tap seemed to go well. We don’t think they found high pressures and we will hear for sure today.

At about 6pm William had another dystonic reaction. It lasted a bit longer than the first, but it abated when they gave William benadryl. At about 9pm (I am not sure the precise time) he started to feel the signs of a third episode. At first the benadryl seemed to work, but it didn’t. It went on for about two hours by the time it passed. Valium was given after about 30 minutes. Slowly the episode wound down and my exhausted son fell asleep. I was so glad to hear his breathing sound like a sleeping person.

Carol and I think we are through with all these meds other than helping with the episodes and aftermath of the last one. We want to
get him home and rested.

Thanks for your prayers.

Chris

Prayer Request Update: Dorathea’s Daughter Janet

We have been blessed with good news, and I'd like you to share it with our
two parish families. My 38 year old daughter, who was diagnosed with stage
4 thymic cancer in May has completed intensive chemo treatments for the past
5 months. She nearly died after two of them and was hospitalized, once with
temporary paralysis. She just received the results this week of her most
recent PET scan, and there are no active cancer cells! Although she still
has cancer cells, they are right now in remission. We are praising God for
answering our prayers for a miracle. It appears that her life will be
extended.
Please continue to keep her in your prayers, though, as there are a couple
of masses that they don't know what they are. She will begin radiation
therapy in November to attempt to destroy them. She has been a real trooper
and has had a positive attitude up until her last chemo treatment, when she
said she wanted to give up. It's been a real battle for her, but we've all
been encouraging her to keep fighting and praying for restored health if
that's God's will. She has lost about 30 lbs - down to a size 2 jeans (she
was slim before all this), but is getting an appetite again. We are all
praising God!!
Thank you, thank you, to each of you who has been praying for her and our
family!
In Christ,
Dorathea
