Navigating our Promise.

Hello everyone! We are enjoying all of the encouragement and prayers from literally all over the world, and from friends, family, and strangers alike. God is truly raising up an army of people to pray, encourage, and support us in this time...a truly humbling and deeply touching time in our lives. Chris and I have had a good weekend as far as our hearts are concerned. There is an amazing grace from the Lord to us for unity, and encouragement to each other. The help that we are receiving is reviving us daily and giving us endurance to face every day. Physically Chris is able to manage his symptoms of pain, fatigue, congestion, trouble breathing, however we are (and you all are) asking for the fullness of his healing to come. This fight has given us a glimpse into His heart for His bride (the church) and her ability to lean on each other, fight, bless, encourage, carry. His bride is more beautiful to me than ever before. The fact that this is becoming global is all the more special to our hearts. Everyday we are getting reports of people praying for us in other countries all over the world.  We dream of the day of being able to travel to this distant lands and say, "Look at what the Lord has done!"
May I be so bold as to lay a request before you? We have not disclosed too many of the medical details as to protect our own hearts from discouragement and fear. But, I do want to clarify...
We are asking God for
-new lungs, heart, and kidneys (tumors have affected all of these areas)
-all tumors to dissolve
-all pain to leave
-the mind of Christ
These are specific ways we can pray...
The Lord has done so much to encourage all of our hearts to believe. We are so thankful for that. It is such a blessing to see people not only supporting, but believing with us.
Fresh Love and Joy be with you today!!!!
Love, Chris and Amy
