Thank you

Thank you to everyone who came to the worship service last night at Haven CRC.  My two Jill’s (friends) came to the hospital with laptop in hand (and chex mix of course) and we watched it on that.  I am grateful to have so many people lifting me and my family in prayers right now.  We need them.  Please do not stop.  I beg that God will erase these tumors so that I can live a long and full life with my family.  Thank you to everyone who has sent letters, cards, email, prayed for us.  Words cannot say enough.

I’m still at Spectrum as an inpatient and I have my first radiation treatment today at 4:15.  I don’t know when I’m going home, but I hope it’s tonight. 

Annointing with Oil

Our Pastor and a group of Elders came Saturday evening (7/31/10) to pray with us and also annoint me with oil.  This was so special and a very emotional moment.

    I don’t know you personally but I remember you from your store! My family is praying like crazy for you and your beautiful family. Praying for you today as you begin radiation treatment, and praying that God will erase these tumors…He is the Great Physician! Let God’s word and the secret place with Him give you perseverance and strength!

    We can’t stop thinking about and praying for you and your family. Thank you for updating us so we can pray accordingly, I know it can’t be easy – so thank you!! We will continue to pray for a miracle!! Chelsea and I helped to take care of Max and Sam in the nursery at church last night – they did great – Max cried a little but nothing some fish crackers could’nt take care of. They are getting so big and they are so cute!!! We hope you can go home soon and that your treatment today goes well.

    With Love and Prayers

    Thank-you for sharing that picture! It brought tears to my face, and gave me the chills. Just looking at it I see Gods powerful presence! God loves you Lindy! He will take care of you!
    God does not make mistakes, and although I question this path you are walking, know you are not alone! I have a whole team of Gods children praying you everyday and night!

    May God bless you and give you strength on your journey.

    Dear Dusty & Lindy,
    You are so special, and such a witness! God definitely has a plan through all of this, for your family and for thousands of others, to meet their needs as well. I sent a prayer request email out on your behalf, and one reply came back from a friend whose mom had breast cancer (30 years ago), and she lived for 25 years after that – believing in a God who had a miracle in store for her. We believe this for you, and will not give up but keep the faith. Our hope is in our ALL powerful God!!! From church yesterday: “While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care, And everywhere that man can be, Thou, God, art present there.” All our love & prayers…Aunt Carole & Uncle Bob

    Brent & Amy
