"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

we're ok

Just a quick note to say that Rachel is doing fine. There were no signs through the night of anything related to what happened yesterday.  I still feel shaky.  Had a rough night.  But I sensed your prayers for us. Thank-you.  We will let you know if anything changes. 

Dave talked with the kids yesterday.  Preparing them a bit for what might happen.  Pray for them.  This could be very hard for them to understand.  So far, they are doing well - they seemed very unaware of what was happening in the next room.  We are taking it easy today.   

We are going ahead with the MRI tomorrow - it should help us understand what is happening in her heart.

People have been commenting on how Rachel is looking alot more like Abigail now.  I like knowing that one day I can tell the kids that their little sister resembled both of them.

Pastor Dave and Kendra,

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I have updated my family in BC so they can have their churches pray for you all as well. May God wrap His arms around you with comfort, strength and peace during this difficult, stressful time.

Love, Charlene Trudel, Eric, Shaye and Skye

Let the knowledge of the very large community that is at prayer for you be a comfort and source of encouragement when it gets dark.

Ward and I think of you often and pray for strength for each new day. We would like to share a song with you, I posted it on my facebook as a link. It was written at a time of bleakness, and God reassured me of His presence. I hope it ministers to you.

you don't know us, but we attended an EMC church in Saskatchewan who has been praying for your family. We are praying, too.
