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.

Please pray for comfort and healing for our precious Kathy. Updated Prayer Requests: Kay Leffel: Is feeling more normal right now and is anxious to get two tests done to find out why she keeps having mini-seizures. She has a memory test on July 20 and the EEG on July 31st. Please continue to pray that there will be answers and a remedy to these unknown episodes Kay keeps having. She wants you to know how grateful she is to you for your prayers and loving thoughts. Gene: who is Gene Ruecker’s son (Rancho) was recently diagnosed with advanced leukemia. The family thanks you for your continued prayers for comfort and healing and for wisdom for the physicians. Char Thurman: Says she is feeling a bit better with the pain a little more manageable and has even tried sleeping in her bed which she hasn’t done for so long. Char will have back surgery to clean up and repair at least 5 discs on August 19 at 9 AM in Inland Valley Hospital. Please pray that the neurosurgeon will have steady hands and a keen mind and that the surgery will remedy all of the problems in Char’s back and she will be pain free. Sandy Lovegren had an MRI of her sinuses because she was having so much face and head pain. It showed that her sinuses are completely impacted.

Please keep her in your prayers for a thorough \"clean out\" and a quick recovery. Joan Eaton (Jojoba: Broke her ankle and has not been able to have it set and casted due to a terrible infection she has acquired from a previous surgery. She isn’t eating and is really sick. Joan needs prayer to cure this infection and be able to have her ankle set. Connie McBride: We need to continue to hold Connie in our thoughts and prayers as she will soon begin her radiation therapy for breast cancer. Since Connie is a high risk patient for cancer recurrence, we should pray that the radiation will lower that risk considerably. Let’s petition for concise treatments and continued peace and comfort for her. Meg, Patty Rhoads’s friend: Has two breast tumors and cells detected in 2 lymph nodes Patty says that prayer has been working. A recent pet scan revealed that the two tumors originally found are only half the size that they originally thought. She will start treatment (chemo) July 21st. To date there is no evidence of spreading to her lymph nodes. They are asking the chapel for some ardent prayers to stop the spread of the cancer and have successful treatments for Meg. Monica is the sister of Hermina’s son-in-law, John. She has just been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Chemotherapy is being done 1st before surgery in the hopes of shrinking the tumor. Please keep Monica and the entire family in your prayers for a cure and for comfort Susan Burnett (Rancho): You might remember her best as “the cookie lady”. Recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having a mastectomy. We pray that there will be no lymph node involvement and that the tumor is contained in a single spot. Please keep Susan in your prayers for comfort and peace and ask the Lord for healing. Praises! Ken Burnett : (Rancho) Praise the Lord that he is doing much better after a full stroke this week which affected his left side. Ken came home with very little residual effect from his stroke but is on blood thinners now. Our God is an awesome God! Deb, Beverly Gram’s friend: Singing Praises to our Lord! Deb\'s lymph nodes are cancer free. She is stage 1A which is the lowest possible with IDC breast cancer. Highly doubtful radiation or chemo required, probably tamoxifen. Next steps PT and continued reconstruction. Glorifying our Lord Jesus Christ. Rob Steinau is extremely grateful to all of you for your prayers. His cardiologist can find no reason why he had a heart attack and has released Rob to travel. Sending up praises glorifying our Lord! ¬¬¬¬___________________________________________________________________________________ “Others” are people who have remained the same or had some improvement in their situations but still need supportive prayers.
