A tough day

Today was a tough day. Becky woke up at 12:30 in the morning with excruciating abdominal pain. She made it through the night by sleeping in a chair with her head on the desk because it hurt too much to lay down. We went in to a local hospital to get her checked out today. They took an ultrasound of her abdomen (liver, pancreas, kidney, bladder, gall bladder) and a chest x-ray and found nothing wrong. We called our doctor in Lexington and he thinks that she either has an ulcer or muscle spasms, but we seem to have ruled out anything seriously being wrong. We have found some medicine to take here and Mike's dad is coming down tomorrow and he will also be bringing some medicine. Please pray for Becky as she is still in a lot of pain. Kerwin was a good boy, he was very patient as he had to wait at the doctor's a lot today, but he did very well and we were proud of him.

Dear Becky,
A prayer for you, dear sister....Heavenly Father, We're believing that if anything is meant for evil , You are more than able to turn it to good. If the enemy is attacking Becky with her hands and now this awful pain, I am believing that You are in the process of turning it to good as You are already healing her. Protect her, Father, as He as done countless times, I ask that Jesus bear her pain allowing her to rest and heal. Thank you that Kerwin was able to sense the situation and You gave him the patience he needed to cooperate. Thank you for Mike and his loving care for Becky. Thank you that Mike's dad will arrive soon and be able to lend them a hand. Thank you for medicine and doctors to help. Thank you that we can completely trust you. Thank you that You were in control at the meeting. And I ask again for You to make the way straight and clear for Becky, Mike and Kerwin to come quickly to their home with everything being handled completely and perfectly. May it be very soon, dear Lord, and in the meantime, please draw them even closer to You. In Jesus' name.

Keeping on praying with love and believing with faith,
Pam

We are praying for you guys. May the Lord give you abundant strength to continue on this road. "He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (Mat 5:45). We need the rain to grow and become the beauty God intends us to be. These obstacles will be only for a season. We never know what lies around the corner but we know who drew up the map. God has a "plan for you, a plan to prosper and not to harm you." Hold on to that promise. Thank you for the updates. It is great to read about your progress as we are anxiously waiting your return. The Lord is Good....All the time. Even when things go rough. I love seeing the pictures of Haiti. I know the photos don't do Port-a-prince justice. In many of the areas, there are odors you cannot describe. The foul stench never leaves. It is hard to imagine so many people can survive in those horrid circumstances. It is such a blessing to be able to make such a difference in a child's life. We loves you guys.

Just some light news. Cassandra and Jordan are playing on the Bluegrass Elite 16 & Under and Kelsey is on the 14 & Under. Both teams won the Babe Ruth State Championships and will be going to Regionals somewhere in Indiana. Asked Ed if he had heard anything from Coach Rice and he had not talked to him in about a month.

Tomorrow night is the homerun derby, so we will be eating pizza and watching that on tv.

We thought Jordan broke her toe but it is just bruised really bad. Her diabetic doctor will be looking at it on Tuesday.

You all are continually in my thoughts. I hope things move swiftly.

Dear Becky,

I am back from Africa. God was so faithful. Thanks for your prayers and note of encouragement. Pam told me about your blog. I am grateful to know what is happening with you in Haiti. I can't even begin to imagine what God has in store for your precious family. It is obviously huge and the enemy can't stand it. Glory to our Lord! What an honor that He has chosen you and Mike for this special time. Hold on the the fact that He called you to this and He is guiding every step. He goes before you. May God's Word encourage you and uphold you.

~~HE WHO DWELLS IN THE SHELTER OF THE MOST HIGH WILL REST IN THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY. PS. 91:1

~~YOUR LIFE WILL BE BRIGHTER THAN THE NOONDAY. EVEN DARKNESS WILL BE AS BRIGHT AS MORNING. HAVING HOPE WILL GIVE YOU COURAGE. YOU WILL BE PROTECTED AND WILL REST IN SAFETY. JOB 11:17-18

~~HE WILL FEED HIS FLOCK LIKE A SHEPHERD. HE WILL CARRY THE LAMBS IN HIS ARMS, HOLDING THEM CLOSE TO HIS HEART. HE WILL GENTLY LEAD THE MOTHER SHEEP WITH THEIR YOUNG.

I am here to stand in the gap, along with others, for you, Mike, and Kerwin.

Believing God and His Word,
