Our Chapel History

RANCHO CALIFORNIA CHAPEL This little chapel began not only as a dream of one couple but also by the hand of God pushing and pulling that one couple, Dick and Kathy Dickinson, who came here in March 1999 to purchase a lot. They retired in May 1999 and took off traveling. When they purchased they noticed an old wooden cross on the mountain overlooking the resort and both commented to each other as they left that they felt God might have a work for them here. Their idea was to teach Bible Studies. God’s idea was Rancho California Chapel.

Sunday Prayer Insert

The Prayer’s List May 24, 2015 Your Prayers Make a Difference Kathy Coletta – is the sister of Vicky Smith (Rancho) and has pancreatic cancer. She had surgery two weeks ago and will need either radiation or chemotherapy as soon as she’s stronger. She thanks everyone for their prayers but asks that we continue to pray for healing. Chuck Donnelly – (Jojoba) had major heart surgery two weeks ago. He has been discharged and transferred to the Village in Hemet at last report. Please continue to pray for a rapid and uneventful recovery for Chuck. Dorothy – is Nancy Hazelton (Jojoba) sister who had a swimming accident a month ago but didn’t realize she had broken her neck until last week! She is hospitalized and waiting for surgery. Please pray for wisdom and skill for her doctors and a complete, rapid healing for Dorothy. Doug Fick – had heart surgery this week where he received two additional stents. The surgery was successful and Doug is recuperating at home. Praise the Lord! Susie Formanek –continues with physical therapy and is making very slow progress. She sees the doctor on Wed. and is hopeful he can identify why her hand is so painful. She is relieved that the therapist was able to eliminate the vertigo from which she was suffering. Unfortunately, she continues to suffer from severe pain in her pelvis, hip, foot, and hand. Praise God for Susie’s healing thus far but don’t forget to keep praying for her…especially for pain relief! Hector – is a co-owner of Watmex, a service that cleans motorhomes and 5th wheels in Jojoba and Rancho. He was driving when hit from behind causing his car to roll four times. He is wearing a neck and midsection brace for fractures of his neck and back. Hector is in severe pain and is most appreciative of everyone’s prayers. Gerry Heidenrich – is Dr. Bob’s brother (Jojoba) who is suffering from cancer and the result of its treatment. He is out of the hospital and the fluid build-up seems to be lessening as the liver recuperates. Nevertheless, he will have to return to the hospital for drainage every couple of weeks. Although he has a long way to go to be well, he is making slow progress and attributes it to prayer. Gerry thanks everyone for all the prayers. Baum Family – continues to need our prayers. Cora was being taught how to shoot a gun and when she pulled the trigger on the BB gun, her younger brother walked in front of her. The BB went through his ear and is embedded in the brain. Henry was taken off the ventilator on Thursday and is showing some positive signs but was unable to walk when brought out of the coma. As of this writing, doctors do not have an answer for this development nor prognosis. Father, Jeff, is devastated and blaming himself for the accident. Mother, Aimee, is in need of prayers as well. Please hold the entire family along with great aunt, Jeri McLees (Rancho) in your prayers. (Dr.) Jane – is a new Christian who works in the Chinese orphanage we support as one of our missions. She is having some success in her marital difficulties and thanks everyone for their prayers. Jennifer – is a close personal friend of Denise Dawson, who is 36, married with a 5 year old little girl. She has metastatic breast cancer that has spread. An infection is under control and she is scheduled for surgery on May 28th. Until then, she has been unable to have chemo. Please pray that the cancer won’t “misbehave” until the chemo can be started again and pray that it will eradicate the cancer. Kallie – is Loren Eakes (Rancho) sister-in-law. She has terminal liver cancer. Kallie knows the Lord and asks for prayers. Please pray for a miracle and, if that is not possible, please pray for a painless illness. Jay Keenan – (Rancho) isn’t making much progress. The doctor opened the shunt a little this week but has now referred them to a neurologist. Jay is only 57 years old; he has difficulty walking, is still dizzy and has loud ringing in his ears. This couple can REALLY use prayers for support, faith, answers, and healing. KT Matthews – (Rancho) surprised everyone by showing up at chapel last Sunday. What a wonderful reunion was had by all. She’s unbelievably strong and upbeat. Nevertheless, please keep her in your prayers for healing, strength, and faith during this challenging time. Connie McBride – (Rancho) met with her breast surgeon this past week. Now she has to follow up with tests by her cardiologist (Connie has had two heart attacks and has stents in her heart). Please pray for wisdom for her doctors and a clear course of treatment ahead! Richard Morrison – Barbara Morrison’s (Rancho) son, continues to show VERY slow progress (he is walking now but still not speaking) and he may never be fully rehabilitated, but the family has hope that the many prayers will help in his recovery. Please ask the Lord for healing, comfort, strength, patience, and wisdom. Lee Nelson – is Adele Elliott’s (Rancho) son who suffers from depression. Lee has found a part-time job which is really an answer to prayer! Nevertheless, please continue to hold him in prayer for comfort, continued improvement, and that he would reach out to God for healing. Rob Steinau – was diagnosed with interstitial fibrosis last week. This lung disease is as a result of scar tissue from an injury to the lung, i.e., pneumonia, COPD, asthma, allergies, etc. There is no cure; relief is only by the use of steroid treatment. Please pray that the steroids do their work and that he can get rid of the annoying cough. Char Thurman – (Rancho) had an epidural on Monday which helped only a small amount. She is still suffering from SEVERE pain in her leg and back. She’s scheduled for another epidural on June 8th and then June 22nd. Until this process is exhausted, there’s little chance she can have an MRI and/or look to other treatment possibilities. Please pray for pain relief. Tim – is the son of Brenda Whitt (Rancho). He was in a very serious automobile accident in April, where he spent the night in freezing temperatures until a bus driver found him the next morning. He suffered fractures in his pelvis, sternum, shoulder, and back along with internal injuries and a collapsed lung. It was a miracle he didn’t die. While he’s making some progress, he’s still in serious pain. Money is a serious problem for both Tim and Brenda. Please pray for relief of pain, comfort and reassurance for both Tim and Brenda as well as a solution to their financial worries. “Travelers” – As everyone knows, this is the time of the year when lots of our families, friends, and neighbors are traveling. Will you take time to ask the Lord for safety in their travels? Pat Vick – has been undergoing extensive testing for spinal disease. Please pray for wisdom for doctors and answers for treatment. Joe and Loretta Williamson – are thrilled to report that their insurance has come through and approved the reconstruction of their damaged Prescott home. They anticipate construction may begin this next week. They thank everyone for all the prayers and acknowledge that God is good, all the time! “Others” are people who have had some improvement in their situations but still need supportive prayers. Thank you for keeping these people close: Mary Baughman (broken leg & kidney failure); Trish Bean (death of spouse); Mike Boe (dizziness following stroke); Nancy Hanssen (broken ankle); Barbara Kruse (death of spouse); Jeri McLees (muscle spasms); Ruthanne Parker (Polymyalgia rheumatica); Kim Roa (death of spouse); Rob (heart transplant); Ron (undiagnosed hand pain and swelling).
