Please pray for John’s Surgery Tomorrow 5/18
Please pray for John’s shoulder surgery tomorrow to repair a torn rotator cuff. It’s been a long time coming for this surgery but it is good to have it done now, before it gets any worse. Surgery starts at 1pm tomorrow. There will be a month in a sling and a couple more months of physical therapy. But John has been through it before 6 years ago when the other shoulder had the same surgery when living up in Albany. So he’s a little bit of a veteran. 🙂 But thank you for your prayers! And now for a picture of our Noah who is almost 11 months!!
We would appreciate your prayers. We live in east Orlando, about 40-50 miles from the coast where the storm is expected to land. We really need this storm to move away from the east coast of Florida and the USA. The current weather forecast for our area says that starting tonight, 5-8 inches of rain and 80-100mph winds are likely. It will last 24 hours. We have prepared the best we can. Our hope is in the Lord. We will keep you updated as we are able.
We are here in sunny high-altitude Colorado for the Cru Staff National Conference! We made it safe to Colorado State University in Fort Collins Sunday and have set up camp in one of the dorm rooms. Last time we were here was 4 years ago when we attended our New Staff Training and Cru National staff conference for that year. What a memorable time of challenging, growing, and building up that we experienced that summer! Thank you to all of you who helped make that possible in prayer and finances. We are here again but this time with a 2 year old girl in tow and another baby girl on the way in just a couple months! We are experiencing some great times of worship, training, engaging speakers, and great fellowship that is preparing us for the new road ahead. We even met up with new friends who will also be in the Leadership Development program we will be in this coming year in Orlando.
Please pray for our continuing search for some good tenants!
We are still searching for tenants to fill our TWO apartments in our 2-family home since we moved out this month and our current tenants of 2 years are moving out as well. We need to fill them by August 1st. We have shown the apartments to many people in the past month, and there are quite a number who have filled out a rental application but we haven’t come to a place of signing a lease with any of them yet. It is a our prayer before almost every meal and then some! =) In all seriousness, we know God will provide as we step forward in steps of faith but it is a harrowing experience since we only have 2 weeks left before the end of the month (and we move out of town before we even get to that point!) . We have other more expensive options for placing tenants but we hope we can manage the property ourselves. Please PRAY for us in this endeavor!
Thank you so much for your support in prayer and finances and your partnership in the Gospel! We are so grateful for you!
By His Grace every day,
