"But the LORD stood with me and Strengthened me..."
(II Tim. 1:6)
Good news from Charlotte! The Church of Christ in Charlotte is visiting Sarah and Curtis daily. Their minister, Russ McCullough, is a big encouragement to my brother. (Thanks, Mr. Hamilton for making this happen). The Church family at Camp Hill has also been incredibly faithful and uplifting (not to mention courageous). Please keep praying and reaching out. "The secret of the servant's life is that he stays in tune with GOD all the time" (Oswald Chambers - my favorite Christian author presently). Thank you to those servant's hands reaching out and those servant's ears listening-- you are the Body of CHRIST. And you bring Glory to our LORD and Savior.
Pray that Sarah's pulmonary system (lungs) will be strengthened enough that she will be able to be weaned off the ventilator. She had damage to both lungs, but one of them was completely collapsed and is very weak. The other one (sorry, I don't know which is right or left) is still struggling and not up to snuff, either. If the Nurses are unable to slowly take her off the vent, she will need to have a tracheotomy and a tube inserted into her neck (temporarily). I am so grateful to all who are faithfully praying. Please continue. We feel most blessed.
