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

Easter Sunday The Prayer’s List April 5, 2015 Your Prayers Make a Difference Mary Baughman – recovered from her surgery and has been discharged from Rancho Springs Medical Center. She is now staying at the Kindred Rehabilitation Center in Glendora. This is a problem as they don’t have the facility to perform her dialysis. Therefore, she must be taken to dialysis in her daughter’s car, which is very, very difficult (to go by van is just too expensive Please continue to pray for Mary….she is very frail and in need of dialysis three times a week. Forest and Cynthia Duncan – According to an email from Cynthia, Forest and I are doing pretty well now that the major mold and respiratory junk is dissipating. We’d covet your prayers, as we will be on a major prayer assignment with the Lord this coming weekend. Our kids will be visiting Easter week end, making this an additional challenge. But, as usual, we are honored to be participating in His great plans! Ecuador Mission – Will you please add the Ecuador Mission trip to your prayers? The group leaves on April 24th. As Kathy Dickinson stated, “We really need an outpouring of God’s hand on the people when we go down there to minister”. Those on the prayer chain should have received a prayer calendar on Friday. If you didn’t receive on, please contact either Kay or Jan for a copy. Susie and Dave Formanek – Dave could use prayers that he might, successfully, apply for and be granted family leave so that he can take care of Susie. Apparently, he only needs to get the doctor’s signature and turn in the paperwork so this pray that this gets done quickly. As for Susie, she’s making slow but steady progress on her road to recovery. Dave has turned into a fantastic nurse! Physical therapy is coming to the house and the gal is going to try to see if Susie can get into a car next week. They are having to order a van for transport every time she needs to be seen by the doctor or have blood tests, etc. and the cost is tremendous. In addition to praying for her ability to travel in a car, we are asked to pray for a good appetite for Susie….she was diagnosed as considerably underweight. The cellulitis is gone as well as the UTI. Praise God for Susie’s healing thus far! Lillian Goldberg – was discharged to her home on Monday and is doing GREAT. The physical therapy she received at the rehab was terrific and she’s managing perfectly! Praise God for this 102-year old Christian Jew, mother of Steve Goldberg! Beth Gosa – is the young woman we’ve been praying for who lives in Green Bay, WI. She was brought to our attention by Randy and Patsy Peters. Beth contracted E-Coli and has been having SEVERE problems as a result. She was transferred to a larger hospital in Milwaukee a couple of weeks ago and is gradually…VERY gradually….showing signs of recovery. Please continue to pray for a complete recovery for this young woman. Jay Keenan – is undergoing a serious health problem, as yet undiagnosed. It started with Jay passing out and then he lost feeling in his left side; he began “dragging” his left foot. He’s been at Temecula Valley Hospital and had another episode (passing out) while a neurologist was observing his walking. Jay will be moved to another hospital shortly but needs our prayers for support, for physicians’ wisdom, for faith and healing. His wife, Kelly, can also use prayers for faith and comfort. Ernie and Sandy Lovegren – Sandy received a call from the radiologist on Thursday to inform her that she has a fracture at T12, which is the 12th vertebra in the thoracic region of her spine. She doesn’t know when she will have another procedure but is in considerable pain in the mean-time. Please pray for pain relief and that surgery can be scheduled soon. Ernie had surgery on his left shoulder (where he has a torn rotator cuff, torn muscles, ligaments and tendons) on Friday, March 27th. This is not the first time for this type of surgery on his shoulder. He’s recovering nicely and not even having to use pain killers. Nevertheless, let’s all join together and ask for uneventful, rapid, and complete healing. KT Matthews – was discharged from the Palomar Acute Rehab facility on Thursday and moved in with Kathy and Larry Blank, who graciously offered their home as solace and a refuge for further rehab and healing. Please continue to pray for strength and faith during this challenging time for all three individuals. Becky Mifflin – is the daughter-in-law of Cliff and Phyllis Mifflin. You were asked to pray for Becky more than a year ago as she was fighting a cancerous tumor of her eye. She flew back east to an eye specialist who elected to do no treatment since the tumor had not grown in three months. Becky just had the eye checked again at UCLA and it has not grown since originally diagnosed! Becky is just to come back in six months for a recheck. This is a real praise, folks! Prayer works! Natalie Mifflin - is the Mifflin’s other daughter-in-law and she needs our prayers. Natalie suffers from panic attacks. She never knows when one is coming on or its duration. Cliff and Phyllis want to take both sons and their families on an Italian cruise to celebrate their 50th anniversary in July, 2016. Natalie believes she cannot go due to her disease. Please pray for healing, encouragement, and faith for this woman. Pray that her family’s encouragement will also work. Richard Morrison – is Barbara Morrison’s son. He is only 55 and had two strokes last year, which affected his right eye and limbs. Unfortunately, he had another one last month that has affected his speech. Richard is staying with his older brother, who has been instrumental in supporting Richard emotionally. Doctors continue to run tests to determine the cause of the strokes and what course of treatment might be the most useful in recovering his ability to speak. This family needs lots of prayers…for Richard, his brother, and for his faithful mother (who is having her own problems nursing hubby Tony)! Please ask the Lord for healing, comfort, strength, and patience. Rancho California Chapel Choir – as most readers know, we will be without a permanent choir director after Easter Sunday. Joe and Loretta Williamson graciously offered to lead the choir, temporarily, when Pete Stifle was forced to resign due to poor health. They are leaving for their new home next week (see article about them below). Normally, being without a director means we will be without a choir. Please pray for God’s intervention and/or that His will be known amongst the chapel faithful. Tony Roberts – is hopefully reaching the end of his antibiotic therapy…we thought he would be through this week but he has another 14 days; fortunately it’s only once/day. Please pray that the blood infection will be gone and no further treatment is necessary after this stint. Please also pray for strength for Barbara who has had to administer all his medication. Ron – is Beverly Grams brother and needs prayer. He just underwent surgery for a neck fusion and back surgery. Then he had a lung collapse. When doctors were conducting an MRI on the lung, they discovered a tumor on Ron’s pituitary glad. Please pray for healing for Ron and to reduce the stress being felt by all the rest of the family. Betty and Rick Scothorn – are both still recovering from pneumonia and exhibiting bad coughs. They are on antibiotics but have a way to go to be feeling well again. Please continue to ask Jehovah Rapha for healing. Joe and Loretta Williamson – just learned this week that they have a SERIOUS problem in their new home in Arizona. Al and Linda Slade stopped by to drop off their mail only to realize there was about 6” of sewage throughout the home! Apparently there’s been a break in a pipe so that every time the next door neighbor flushed a toilet, it backed up into the Williamson home. EPA has been called in, the homeowner’s association has become involved and they just learned that their insurance will cover the damage….EVERYTHING must be removed and replaced (walls, doors, floors, floor coverings, etc.) Please pray for strength, courage, faith, patience and comfort as our dear friends tackle this difficult situation! “Others” are people who have had some improvement in their situations but still need supportive prayers. Thank you for keeping these people close: Pam Amick (death of spouse); Leticia Crowley (death of spouse); Brooklyn Fowler has strong praises: doctors found nothing wrong and believe her seizure was a one time thing, only; please praise God for this miraculous healing; Jodi Hennessey (death of spouse); John Klein is having success with therapy on his new knee but Joyce is still having problems with her knee; Bob Kruse (pancreatic tumor); Jeri McLees (muscle spasms); Chris Poling (death of spouse, Gary); Frank Roa (cancer); John & Bonnie Schaefer (her mother); Pete Stifle (heart issues); Annemarie Tenten-Brunhart (had to cut her visit to the Ranch short due to the pain and sorrow of the first anniversary of Roy’s death, please pray for her); Ed Yost (eye injury and needs MRI). If you know of someone in need of prayers (even if it is YOU), please call, text, or email one of us. Please let one of us know your email address and we will be pleased to add your name to the list. Send it to Kay Leffel at tapyak@gmail.com or call me at 208-699-0435 or to Jan Doane at grammied@att.net or call her at 303-522-0213. Have a great week!
