Please pray for Carrie's dad...

Hello all,

Carrie and I are requesting prayer for her dad, Francis. He was rushed to the hospital yesterday around 3:00 in septic shock. We spent the afternoon and evening in various waiting rooms awaiting word of what was going on and when we can see him. They had to do emergency surgery on his arm where they believe the initial infection had come from. The surgery went well but he is, as they have all told us, " a very sick man and we will see what the next 48 hours will bring." This is stressful and oh so hard. They are having trouble keeping his blood pressure at a safe level and keeping him breathing. I asked many questions and one thing I found out is this is in no way related to his heart attacks he has had within the last few months. So, please keep Francis in your prayers. He will be in the hospital for "several weeks" (as they say). He is currently in the ICU.

Thank you,
Carrie and Amanda

Prayers for support...

Hello all,

Carrie and I are currently in our beloved Colorado and are trying to spread the word about all that has happened this last year! Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we raise additional monthly support. I (Amanda) am at 76% of my monthly needed amount and Carrie is at 86%. I am stressed out because it is the lowest amount I have been at all year. I know that the Lord will provide. He always does! If you know of any creative ideas for additional monthly donations please feel free to let us know. I appreciate all of your continued words of encouragement and prayers!

Amanda and Carrie
