We were very blessed again today to have our life group provide service for us in our home. It has been such a gift to have friends and family close while Brad is unable to get out of the house right now. We are so thankful to have such wonderful friends to organize a song service and to bring lunch for everyone.

Brad had a more difficult day today. Thankfully he slept very well last night, but he remained very tired most of the day. At times he finds his oxygen mask dependency and his lack of energy very discouraging. He has also started to run some fever this evening.

We know that God is actively working to heal Brad. I pray that Brad feels better tomorrow and finds a way to stay positive amidst any additional health difficulties. He continues to amaze me with how he always stays so strong and positive, despite the circumstances...I am so proud of him.

Thank you for your continued prayers.

Our prayers never cease. Our girls have been begging God on your behalf, Brad. It's gone from a "please God help Brad" to "God, just take the cancer out of his body. Please God! We know you can! Just take the cancer away!" It's awesome to hear and we believe it's happening.

we love you.

For the peace from above, for the loving-kindness of God, and for the salvation of our souls, let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer.

Bless all whose lives are closely linked with ours, and grant that we may serve Christ in them, and love one another as he loves us.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer.

Comfort and heal all those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit; give them courage and hope in their troubles, and bring them the joy of your salvation.

Lord, in your mercy
Hear our prayer.

Praying without waiver.

Brad and Jenny,
As with so many others, we are continuing to pray for you both.

PS The commented deleted post was from me. I misspelled Brad as "Brade". Brad, you know how we teachers are, we have to correct everyone's misspellings, even our own.
