In the sober thoughts and emotions of Good Friday, and, yet, an overwhelming thankfulness and humility before God, we continue to ask Him to heal His little Katie-girl.
She is beautiful. Have you studied her eyes yet? If not, search through some of Jenny's recent photos on her posts. I'm telling you, her eyes go right through you. It's like you can see God's purpose in them- a purpose much greater than any of us realize.
Katie shows signs of discomfort continually, and I can tell from her voice on the phone, Jenny is pouring all of her love into Katie. I can also tell that Jenny has that worried mother's heart right now. Not worry that God is not sovereign, but that worry that her child is far from well.
It is our Good Friday night, and her Saturday morning. As we will be asleep, she will be traveling to Kampala hoping to meet with a specialist that we were referred to by a friend. We are very hopeful that he will be able to help her in some way.
Please pray as you read this that God would give them safe and easy travel (we think Katie gets motion sickness- and Kampala requires a few hours of car time).
Pray that the Professor they are to meet may be able to help, and that he is available (an odd thing to be available on a Saturday on Easter weekend).
Pray, also, that Jenny will receive encouragement from other believers. This whole thing with Katie is emotionally and spiritually very difficult to do on her own.
As an important note to that, she is greatly encouraged to know who is praying for all of us right now. If you have not left a comment before, please do so that she may be encouraged by the many who hold her and our whole family up before the LORD.
Thank you. A million "Thank you"s for your encouragement and prayers. I truly believe that you have no idea the crucial role that God has for you during this time. However, thank you that you have chosen to submit to His call on you to pray and encourage. As a husband and daddy, I am eternally grateful to you, and to the God who is able to draw His family together for His purpose and glory.
