please pray

Tony has pneumonia. Please pray. The good news, it's treatable and TB has been ruled out for now. But that scares me that they even mentioned that.

They want him back in 20 days for tests to see how he's recovered, and to see why he is getting these chronic bronchitis/lung infections.

Please pray for us all around, and feel free to share our prayer request. If someone put a plane in front of me I'd get on it. We are working on selling off some big appliances to pay for rent and food. That probably sounds bad, but God is very creative in how he has provided for us since we have been here. Tony hasn't been able to find a job yet, but we're still here. Either way, our lives and future are the hands of the One who made us.

I'll write more later. If you have any words of encouragement, bible verses, or anything you want to share, please do. It helps us so much! Thanks...

Hey Chris

Praying for you guys!

Jesus, I ask that you release the fullness of Your healing to Tony's lungs, even right now, Lord, release Your divine health into Tony.

Also Lord, I ask for provision to be released to this family, in all the ways they need it. Lord, bless these, your children and suprise them with Your abundance.

God, show them your Glory, I ask and pray.

Love you guys,

Praying, praying, praying Chris! For Tony's healing, for strength for you, for joy in your home at this time. Not the fake kind, but the peace that passes all understanding. For provision, for surety, for guidance as you walk.

Remember He is faithful and you are loved with an everlasting love!

oh my dear friend. I can just feel your weariness today. What I will say is that God will carry you here. For it is not by your might and power but by His Spirit. I know it must feel as though it is your might and power so much because your are fighting to accomplish your mission and to just, well, live! But know, the Spirit of the living God is the one who will bring you through!

Psalm 91 is my very favorite series of verses to speak when we need protection or healing. I have it memorized and in my times of need, I speak it!!

I won't write the whole thing out here, but will chose just a portion for you:

If you say, "The Lord is my refuge," and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands so that will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in times of trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."

We are praying for you and your family. The Lord is faithful and we have our hope in Him and He keeps His promise! Be encouraged!

Hebrews 6:17-20 "In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek."
