David Burge Needs Prayer


For any of you who know Pastor David Burge of New Zealand, he has just taken a turn for the worse and the chemotherapy is no longer working. They estimate two weeks. Please pray for him. This is the last update from his wife, Tarnya.

We saw the consultant yesterday. The chemo is no longer working. He estimates that Dave has about 2 weeks left.

We have been blessed by many comments on the blog; by the assurance of your prayers and thoughts; and by some very thoughtful and practical gifts. Thank you.

Thank you to those who have written beautiful letters of tribute. Dave has appreciated these.

Only visits from immediate family from now on please.

If you have anything that you still want to say to Dave please pop it in a card, comment on the blog, or send a private email. I will be reading all Dave’s mail to him.

I have been posting regular updates at our Prayer Center from his wife’s blog. David’s website is all about conditional immortality and is called afterlife.co.nz. His email is dburge@slingshot.co.nz. A while back I interviewed him for Truth Matters.

    To die, to sleep
    No more – and by a sleep to say we end
    The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to – ‘tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep
    To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub,
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
    Must give us pause. There’s the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life.
