5 Days...

Praise the Lord! So far we have not come down with the stomach bug and Ella is totally back to normal. She made a fairly quick recovery and I know it's because of your prayers!! Seriously, it has touched my heart to know so many of y'all are praying and were praying so fervently for this one specific request. Thank you so much Corey and Amanda for spreading the news on Ella so even more prayers would be voiced on our behalf!

Today's Prayer Request

Please pray for the spiritual warfare that we are encountering already and will no doubt be encountering while we are there.

As You, O Lord have commanded us, may we be strong and courageous. May we not be terrified or discouraged. Let us know that you will be with us wherever we go. Joshua 1:9

Lord, let us be strong in You and in Your mighty power. Put Your full armor on us, so we can take a stand against the devil's schemes. Remind us that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of the dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:10-12

Thank you so much!!!

Just for fun, I wanted to leave y'all with a few precious pictures of my husband playing the guitar at home with Ella.
