Without Stain

Summer and I have been so comforted by knowing how much prayer has been offered on behalf of the baby and our family. We discovered today that there are prayer warriors not only in several churches and several states praying for us, but also in Russia, England, South Africa and Honduras.

What incredible care and love the Church offers in our time of need through their prayers. We are deeply humbled.

We would ask that you continue to pray for a miracle. We believe that if God can raise the dead and heal the blind, then He can also create the kidneys in our little baby. We trust that God will be glorified, either through the miracle of good health, or through the miracle of the testimony of His Word in our lives reaching those who might not know Him as Savior.

A friend shared the C.S. Lewis quote below with me today and I pray that it is an encouragement to all who are going through or have recently gone through a trial. Even though we will experience great pain, God has equipped those in the midst of the fire to be able to experience great joy. It is only when we are in the lowliest of places that we can look up and see the great loftiness of an Almighty and Sovereign God who deeply cares for the lowly in their suffering and hurt.

“God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain”
~CS Lewis
