Leon and his wife Min are a beautiful couple who love the Lord. They are members of Shelby Bible Church and are loved by many. This page is being created so many who care deeply for Leon and Min can get updates on Leon and pray specifically for his needs. Also, if there are tasks for Min and Leon that we can assist with we can make it known here.  

I’m not sure when Leon’s pain started, but it was definitely the beginning of this trial in his life. In late July of 2022 it was discovered that Leon had a brain tumor and would need surgery. The scheduled surgery turned into emergency surgery because of a brain bleed.  His surgery took place and it went well. They were able to stop the bleeding and removed 80% of a fast growing tumor.  They will treat the remaining tumor with radiation and chemotherapy. Because of the power of prayer to our Father, The Great Physician, Leon healed quickly and only required one surgery. Leon came home from the hospital on  August 27, 2022.
He is currently undergoing chemo and radiation treatments 5 days a week  and also doing physical therapy. 

We believe God is good all the time and through prayer He will hear and answer our requests. He is in control of everything, His timing is perfect and nothing is too big for our God! 
In Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬ it says:
“do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
