James Pfeiffer Fire Fighter Age 30, Westfield, NJ

MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ A decorated Westfield firefighter is dead. James Pfeiffer Jr., 30, was trimming an oak tree in front of his Mountainside home on Central Avenue around 10:30 a.m. when a branch snapped, swung down and struck the ladder he was standing on, Mountainside police Capt. Richard Osieja said today. Pfeiffer fell to the ground, landing on his head. He was rushed to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead around 9:30 p.m.

Its a very somber day for us, said Westfield fire Chief Daniel J. Kelly. Jimmy will be remembered for his dedication, work ethic and attitude. A member of the department since 1999, Pfeiffer descended from a long line of Westfield firefighters. He was friendly, enthusiastic and dedicated to saving lives. He received national attention and decorated for valor for saving a 16 month old boy who had fallen into a deep crevasse five years ago. Pfeiffer has a one year old daughter Carly. An honor guard will accompany the ceremony as family and friends bury their beloved brother and friend.

Lord, grant eternal rest to James and all the faithfully departed public servants who risked their lives daily so that we might live in saftey. May his valor be long remembered and inspire all citizens to contribute to the common good by serving their local community.

Giliseliya of Kapiza, Malawi

Kapiza, Malawi - Giliseliya and the people of Kapiza often have only five or six months of food for a whole year. Recently Giliseliya and her neighbors have received training in how to plant crops, manage soil and grow sweet potatoes, maize and nuts. With a small amount of seed and basic farming tools they can grow enough food so that their families do not go hungry. Giliseliya and her neighbors are stopping the cycle of hunger and poverty by becoming productive farmers through training and a small amount of resources.

Lord, help us stop the cycle of hunger and poverty one person at a time. Be generous so we can be generous. Bless those less fortunate with the help and skills they need to live in your abundance. We also pray for all those needing your assistance, especially those recovering from natural disasters. Continue to bless relief efforts during this time of crisis in Pakistan, China and the Middle East.
We trust in your mercy and Divine intervention as we pray...

Peoria, IL - Father and daughter are fighting to recover. Two Princeton residents remain hospitalized in Peoria a week after being injured in an accident on Interstate 80 near Utica. Thomas Bolin, 37, and 14-year-old daughter Corren Bolin were taken to St. Francis Medical Center last Tuesday afternoon when their vehicle was reportedly struck from behind by a semi while stopped in backed-up traffic caused by an earlier accident.
Thomas Bolin has been upgraded to good condition. Corren remains in critical condition, according to a hospital spokesman.

Lord, continue to heal Tom and Corren as they continue to recover from this accident. How many accidents, spiritual or physical happen when we are not attentive and fail to adjust to the signs of our times and the immediate needs of a situation. Lord, help us to be more attentive to your will and keep us safe as we journey in your love.

Ronan, Age 3, Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix, AZ - A three year old is facing brain surgery today with a possibility of impaired or loss of vision. Ronan, age 3, earlier this week was playing and enjoying family fun as usual, as children started back to school. One physican office visit has changed everything! Everyone is in shock! Sweet little Ronan has a brain tumor with possible ocular complications.

Today his parents, grandparents and friends are urgently asking for our prayers for a successful surgery. It seems brain turmors are occurring younger and younger. Researchers are trageting cell phones, electromagnetic fields, chemicals in our environment and food and exposure to known carcinogens, as possible links or triggers for brain tumors in young children.

It seems it is harder and harder to stay healthy these days with the onset of life changing illnesses happening earlier and earlier.

We pray for Ronan and all young children battling life threatening illnesses. We especially lift up all the doctor's and nurses who attend them. We pray for Phoenix Children's Hospital and the advancement of their leading edge research and treatment of children with catastrophic illnesses.

Lord, in your mercy heal your little ones and be with their families in their time of need. We send our heart felt prayers to all families who have asked our prayers this day. May God's healing love be with you and comfort you in the days ahead.

Kody King, Age 19, Recent High School Graduate

Newbern, TN - Kody King,age 19, a recent graduate of Dyer County High School, was discovered by two off-duty firemen on Hamer Road. The Dyer County Sheriff's Department was notified and emergency responders arrived on the scene.

Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Bryan Avery said King was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from his 2002 Chevrolet Silverado when the accident occurred. King was the only occupant inside the vehicle and no other vehicle was said to be involved. Avery noted that deputies believed the accident happened a couple of hours before King was found.

A fog warning prevented the Air Evac Lifeteam helicopter from taking King to the Med in Memphis and he was instead transported there by ambulance. Avery said the crash is still under investigation.

Lord, protect all recent graduates as they begin their new phase of their life in you. Please bring healing and comfort to Kody and his family. May your Divine Wisdom and Providence guide and direct our youth as they make life changing decisions this Fall. We thank you for Kody's life and all those search and rescue teams, who save so many lives each day. We entrust all our love ones to your providential care.
