A special delivery

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,  Heb. 12:1

Today the Lord graciously reminded me of HIS grand magnificence and love.  The front desk called to tell me I had some visitors.  When I arrived out front I didn’t recognize these precious people, but immediately knew they were a part of Charlie’s army-the precious saints that span the globe who are praying for Charlie.  I hugged them and quickly learned that he and his wife live in the small town in Kansas where my mom grew up.  He is the pastor of my aunt and uncle’s church there.  He told me that they pray for Charlie on Sunday and throughout the week.  He updates his congregation on Charlie’s status regularly and they PRAY!  These faithful people (most of whom I haven’t met) have linked arms with us in this battle for Charlie and life!  What an overwhelming gift, a humbling knowledge that they are excited about being a part of one of what God is doing in a little boy in Colorado!

He also shared with us about a young man in their church that has been such a BRIGHT spot and a JOY.  A young man named Kevin, also with DS.  He shared with us how he LOVES PEOPLE, HUGS, SMILES, and LOVES JESUS- I cried as he told me about his simple faith and desire to be baptized, which he was.   Aunt Claire, I know you have been enlisting prayer WARRIORS on our behalf, contacting all the faithful friends you know that will pray alongside us…thank you!  Thank you for introducing us to these special visitors today that encouraged my socks off.  They spoke life-giving words, prayed over Charlie, and made a special delivery of love from a community 500 miles away that is bearing this burden with us.  Wow, God!
