Dear members of this board,
thank you for your continued prayers and your words of encouragement.
Fr Anatole from the Holy Theotokos of Iveron Russian Orthodox Church very kindly gave Holy Myrrh to Jason, Sherena's husband, so Sherena could be anointed with it.
The family is gathering to pray for Sherena tonight (Tuesday 6/17) at 5pm Hawaii Standard Time (8pm PST, 10pm CST, 11pm EST) and again tomorrow morning (Wednesday 6/18) at 5am HST (8am PST, 10am CST, 11am EST). Please, if you have a moment at either of those times, pray with us. Although they are not Orthodox, I beg you to take pity on Sherena and her children. Please pray that the Lord, through the intercessions of the Most Holy Theotokos and all the saints, would heal her and restore her to health. The family is asking that prayers be said especially for the recovery of her sight, motor skills, and mental faculties, and for the doctors and nurses who are providing Sherena with care. She is still in a coma, but as Maria so encouragingly pointed out, showing signs of life (blinking, squeezing her hand). Please pray for her full recovery and healing--in body and soul.
Forgive me for continuing to ask of your charity.
Asking for your prayers,
