Please pray for an acquaintance named Troy, that the Lord would show him what to do, and what not to do. Also, please pray for my dad. He needs the Lord badly. Thank you so much, and God bless you all. ~Heather

Praise the Lord for LIFE!

In August of 2009, SaChay shared a prayer request: that the Lord would bless her and her husband with a baby.

In His faithfulness, HE answered SaChay's prayer; the desire of her heart. See her update here, and please pray for a wonderful pregnancy and a healthy baby!

Opportunity To Bless

ATTENTION!!! I just found out about a family w/ 9 children (ages: 13, 11, 10, 9-twins, 7, 6, 5, & 22 months) who lost their home & EVERYTHING in it to a fire over Christmas break. The Red Cross is providing shelter for them, but only for the first 5 days. I will be gathering basic necessity items to send them (they are out of state). But if you could please pray for them & contact me if you have it on your heart to help them in any way that you can, it would be MUCH appreciated!!!
We (Miss Raquel and Family) personally know a friend of this family who is helping them.  Just in case somebody thinks this is a hoax. :P  My family and I are putting together some things to send them...and even if you can't afford shipping costs, please consider sending gift cards to Walmart, grocery stores, etc. 
For more information, please contact me: miss.raquel316@gmail.com.
Thank you so much!!

Pressing On

Please be praying for the Word of Life Bible Institute. We left for winter break late November and head back on Monday. While over break we lost a student to a car crash, a faculty member suffered a stroke, and it just seems like things that could go wrong in students lives were. Please just pray that when we get back together we can be there for eachother as well as keep our focus on God.

Thank you!

Isaiah Is Home - Thank you for praying!

Dear friends,

Isaiah is going home today (in fact I think he is home by now) They moved him straight from the ICU to home. That's fantastic news. :) :) :) Poor little guy was so uncomfortable the doctors were really at a loss. His tummy was swelling and he was crying, would sleep for more then 15min, wouldn't eat, wouldn't smile, and was just plain unhappy and uncomfortable. Then a smart, thinking, level headed, absolutely brilliant doctor took a look at his medication and suggested that the morphine might be a little to strong for such a little bloke, so they took him off it. He started smiling, playing with toys, stopped crying, and even giggling almost immediately after his last dose wore off. He's just on Tylonal now, and so is doing a lot better. :) :) YAY. :) :) :) He's even eating. He's "talking" and making sounds and stuff, which is just like he use to be before the surgery. Auntie says he's eating better then he ever has, is gaining weight (Finally!) and is acting more like a normal baby. He's less whiny and unhappy all the time. (he use to always be displeased) and so everything is wonderful now! YAYAYAY!

Isaiah Update...

12/28 Update:
Well we just got back from the hospital. He's doing very well. I'm so happy! Poor little thing. I was the last one in to go and see him. Poor baby. He was sleeping when I got in. He was hooked up to everything, but the only thing that seemed to bother him was when they did the blood pressure thingy. He didn't particularly care for that part. I put my hand on his head and pet his cheek. He seemed to like it cause when I took my hand away he started whimpering. The whimpering was less when I put my hand back on, but he kept at it for a while. Poor little guy. He looked like he was hurting. :( :( Then I gave him a kiss and he smiled, so I felt better for him. I gave him another kiss and he smiled bigger. Then I noticed that the oxygen mask was pushing on his eyes and nose kinda hard, and not covering his chin, so I adjusted it and he seemed a lot happier. It was pressing on his eyes, and I could see how that would be very uncomfortable. Then the nurse played some music for him and he calmed down a lot. After turning down the lights for him he just feel right asleep. Little angel. :)

He had the best surgeon too. Big black guy with a really calm, soft, deep voice. He looked like a great big teddy bear! :) He smiled too. :)

Thank you for your prayers. Isaiah will be in hospital for 3-5 days, so please continue to pray for him as he recovers. I'll send updates if anything changes, but he's doing just fine for now. Thank you all so much. :)



We're here now. I'm using the hospital computer. I will post updates
every once and a while. We're updated every two minutes on what times
everything is happening with a big sceen here, and it's very calming.
Auntie seems to be one of the least nervous. Everything seems to be
going well. He was aparently angry for a bit because he wasn't being
fed, but then calmed down when uncle (his daddy) held him. They had to
draw blood again, which he didn't like, but it was over quickly and he
soon stopped crying. They took him into the surgery room at 1:10. It's
2:07 now, and he's still in there. Thank you all so much for praying
with me at 2:00. We all did, and there's a woman here from Auntie's
church who came to support them too. It's very encouraging. Grandma is
staying calm, and it's a very calm envirnment with cool colors used in
decoration, with some warm colors to brighten it up. It's all very
calm. No one is crying, and it's all good.

IMEDIATE UPDATE: Isaiah JUST started the actual surgery. They were
just doing pre stuff before. It's 2:08. Please continue to pray. Thank
you so much!


Prayers for Isaiah during Heart Surgery

Please be praying for us really hard today. My cousin Isaiah, who is only 8mo old is having heart surgery. It's a small surgery, but they're opening up the chest, which makes it more of a process...My Aunt and I (it's her son), and my mom, believe that God ordains all things and that He works them out for good, so we're trusting Him through this, but grandma (who is a worrier by nature) is VERY worried about this whole thing. Calling it things like "terrible" and such. I'm not sure she's going to be helpful at the hospital, I'm afraid she might be the one who needs the comforting. She's not a Christian. Please pray that everything will go well!

At 2:00pm (Wisconsin Time) I will be praying for my cousin, who will be 1/2 hour into surgery. Please pray with me at that time as we lift him in prayer. Thanks. I know God always answers prayers, even if it's not in the way we expect.
