Day + 8

Today has been another good day.  It has been a day filled with the same struggles and hurdles and challenges that we have seen here in days gone by, but not any new ones.  That is good news!  Elena still doesn't like any of it, and who would, but she is familiar with all of it and knows she can deal with it.  Please continue to pray for her strength and stamina to endure all that lies ahead.  We are still at the beginning of a long hard road.

Today was also a day full of love and encouragement from near and far.  We are amazed at the number of responses we have received from the story that aired on 11Alive and are grateful for each and every one of them.  It feels good to know that there are people out there willing to walk this journey with us and send out prayers ahead of us.  Our God is an awesome God!

In Him,
