[UPDATE: God is soooo good. No longer need any donations. Please keep praying for Allan's situation and if you want to purchase any of the books on my list, they are still for sale]
I've told you about my brother, Allan. His lung cancer is contained in the one lung. He will decide this Thursday what treatment to do for it--surgery, radiation or chemo. Please pray for him because any of these are going to be extremely difficult. He is 6'1 and weighs only 110 pounds. He cannot stand to lose weight, so I don't know what they will decide.
His inability to breathe qualified him for 24-hour oxygen. He has 50-feet of tubing so he can get around the house when necessary. He spends his days, alone, in his bedroom. Occasionally he gets up to make a little meal and let his Labrador and German shepherd outside. He lives in Connecticut, a two-day minimum trip by car for me (which I cannot take due to my back problems, even if I had the money to go, which I don't).
Herein lies the need and burden I have.
I want to get him a laptop computer so he and I can converse on-line and also, so he can Google and blog and play with it. I am going to sell books to pay for it and the router and stuff needed to connect him to the world wide websites. If you see a book you would like to purchase (from the list I will post soon in my left sidebar and keep updated), please let me know and I'll get it out to you. Just email me at selahvtoday@ aol.com. For the most part, these books are brand new. I get some in exchange for devotional writing I do.
Of course, I shouldn't be proud...so I come to you with great humility asking if you'd care to make a small donation (I realize the economy is rough on everyone), I'd be so very grateful, and would pray down heavy-duty blessings upon you for your generosity.
If you have a book or two that you could sell on your own website for Allan and share some of the proceeds, that would be super, too.
