Special Request

I know I said I would be "off the air" for a couple of days but there is a very special prayer request I would like to ask for.

Diane, our long term volunteer and dearest friend from Wisconsin has been working down here off and on over the past 13 months plus. She leaves behind her 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren up north. One of those daughters called the other day with heartbreaking news from one of her best friends.

Beniah, age 2, fell into a sewer drain. His father rescued him. His mother is expecting their 3rd child and was ordered to bed rest until delivery. Beniah is now in a drug induced coma and needs prayer to have all his organs restored to normal health. The next few hours are critical. This is an enormous tragedy but we all know all things are possible with God and that He is our ultimate healer. Please keep this entire family in your prayers. I will do my best to keep you as updated as I can from here.

I did make it back for my son's wedding. It took 12 hours but the travel was uneventful, thankfully. Tomorrow is the wedding which will also require more traveling. Thank you in advance for your prayers for safe travel. I will then be heading back south for another 12 hour trip come Sunday morning. Hopefully I will have some great family photos to share with you next week.

Thank you again for your prayers. Accidents happen all around us, most of which we know nothing about. This one is now known. Thank you for caring.

Until next time ... God bless this family ... Susan and Monty

Thank you Susan for getting this prayer request out to countless people.
The latest on Beniah and his family is that the critical hours have passed since he fell into the septic tank and drown on human waste is that his lungs were filling up and his temperature rose. He is being tube-fed directley into the stomach and has begun to be able to eliminate. Praise God! All being good sings that his little body is trying to heal itself all by the grace of God.
Mom is very tired as she stands endless hours at the side of his crib. We are praying that this 4th baby will arrive healthy and on time.
The prayer need are that Beniah's inner organs heal, his brain functions at 100%, that Mom stays healthy and that Dad, who had foot/ankle surgery and need to run on it before it was time in ordar to save his son will also heal.

Thank you for your continued prayers!
