And without having much time at all to process sweet Gina....
I got a call at 7:15 PM tonight letting me know that sweet Adong Betty will be having surgery in the morning!!! This is GREAT and EXCITING news... and it comes with a request for a lot of prayer. The hospital called someone earlier today requesting that Betty come to the hospital by this evening. The only hiccup in the situation was that the message didn't get passed along and Betty lives about a 10 hour journey from the hospital. And so the adventure for this little girl continues. I'll be leaving at 5 in the morning to meet her at the hospital and be with her as she goes in for surgery, comes out, and recovers in the hospital. I ask you to join me in praying for this little girl and for ALL the details. And God-willing less than 15 hours from right now, her heart will be repaired.
I'll keep you all posted. Trusting that I will be able to get a message out tomorrow night... if not, I will get one out as soon as I can.
But now thus says the Lord, he who created you o Jacob, he who formed you, o Israel; Fear not for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you walk through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned and the flames shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
If anything that I said in this post (or any) left you with questions/comments... please let me know. My intent is to be real on here... but part of sharing in the rawness is not always saying things smoothly I am so up for clarifying and/or dialoguing on anything that I have said.
