don’t give up | Praying for Sue Wyatt

Prayer can never be in excess. C.H. Spurgeon I borrowed this yesterday from a friend’s blog. It is such a powerful reminder; I thought it perfectly complemented the purpose of this post. Praying for a dear friend, Sue, is something I want to do. It is pretty much the only thing I can do at this point, in addition to donating blood. (If you want to participate, sign up for the blood drive with Red Cross this Sunday here!) The timing of the subject of prayer fits in quite well with what Pastor Tom has been preaching through on Sundays. … Continue reading don’t give up | Praying for Sue Wyatt

Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house.

Peter Helms – 11.18.11 Update, posted by Hope

Peter is home from the minor surgery he had to remove scar tissue inside of his throat caused by the trach. The doctor also switched the type of trach out to the one we can cap fully that will teach Peter how to breath in and out through his nose instead of just breathing in through his nose and out through his trach. This week we started the first capping trials with him, and the first day he did really well. Other days it seems to cause Peter to panic a little bit, but we think that’s fairly normal since … Continue reading Peter Helms – 11.18.11 Update, posted by Hope
