This is probably repeat information to most of you but I need all prayers on deck this morning. Most of you know that our newborn son Malachi was born with pneumonia. He has been on a ventilator since birth. I am a bundle of nerves as we prepare for today. Today they plan to take Malachi off of the ventilator. This is a huge step and I am asking everyone to PRAY,PRAY,PRAY this morning. It will happen around 11 o’clock our time. Pray that he does well off the ventilator and that there is nothing else wrong with him, pray for healing for our little man, and pray that he will not have too much discomfort. I can’t express how much him being off the ventilator is a HUGE step. Please, pray and get others praying as well. Thank you!

Also, please be in prayer Evangeline and Ellis. It is hard for them not to be around mommy. They need peace too.

  3. We are praying and will continue. Definitely forwarding to others to do the same. God has this covered…He loves you and your sweet family so much!

  4. I know you do not know me, but we are fellow missionaries in Belmopan. Our church, LifeNet, prayed for your baby on Sunday and my family will be praying with you at 11 this morning. My heart goes out to you…and I would love to help in anyway… I assume you are in the city. Jennifer and Ruel attend our church and that is how we heard about your sweet baby. And by the way, your blog is awesome. I was blessed at your heart. Hopefully we will meet someday.
