Sunday--or Monday Morning

I am staying awake to observe Bryan. The hiccups have continued and now interfere with his breathing. It seems he gets a hiccup caught and is not able to get his air. Very disappointing! Also, the jaundice is becoming more severe; I think the doctors will see it on Tuesday.

Today we went to church as a family! Our friend, Ken Millar, is visiting from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada and also attended church with us. By God's grace and mercy, Bryan was able to preach today even though he hiccuped all through it. His mom and brother were also there.

As always, the support and encouragement we receive from the people at Pilgrim Bible Church is overwhelming. Love is outpoured from the youngest to the oldest. It is so precious to have young people (under 10 years) come up to Bryan and say, "I'm praying for you, Pastor!" Sometimes they make cards or draw pictures. Thank you, each and everyone, for all the notes and pictures, fasting and praying. God hears your prayers!

Lord, God, Thank you that Brian was able to share your Word at Pilgrim Bible Fellowship yesterday. Thank you for the family of God in that local church who are supporting him and his family. Please continue to bless them as they walk through this valley with Bryan and Susan. Lord, I pray that you will grant both Bryan and Susan restful sleep tonight. Please ease the hiccups. I am asking you to give the doctors special wisdom tomorrow, for safety as Susan and Bryan drive to Seattle, and for protection and peace for the children at home while they are away. Thank you that the answers are on the way even before we ask. We know that you love Bryan and Susan. May they feel your love today in a very special way.
