Pray for Malachi

I hate that lately our lives seem like such an emergency. I know it must be draining for you as it is very draining for us.

After returning home from Cody's medical fiasco we enjoyed 2 weeks of getting back into a routinue. However during this time I seemed to be aquiring some odd symptoms. After recovering from Malaria I started having numbness in my forearms. It was on and off. I was also very light headed, forgetful and had a hard time focusing on things. We talked to a doctor who said I should just rest. After several days (more like a week) of resting, I was tired of doing nothing and wanted to get on with my life. In some ways I seemed to be improving. Some days were better than others. After a couple days my numbness and tingling seemed to be getting worse, and we were really praying about what to do. Traveling to Kampala, staying there, and getting around is not a cheap or an easy matter. Not to mention we were just here.

Malachi's sickness was also not improving so we decided that we should make the journey south so we could both see doctors. After several blood tests things are not looking good for Malachi and doctors are advising us to travel to better health facilities for extensive testing and to find out more answers. It is looking rather serious (don't want to post possibilities on the world wide web), put we are still hoping for the best. We are asking for your prayers. Pray that God would give us wisdom on what to do and where to travel, who should travel and financial provisions. Pray for healing.

We know that God loves Malachi more than we do, and we are continuing to walk by faith.



  1. Praying for Malachi and your sweet family. So thankful that God is in total control, even of serious illnesses. I'll be praying for full healing for Malachi and your family!

  2. We support you whatever God tells you. If He wants you to come back to the states for a time it is still His calling. I pray you know for sure whatever the right decision is. It is so hard when what we want to do seems like what He would want, but we find ourselves "kicking against the goads" turn after turn. It seems sure that you guys need a real rest, but for how long & where? We trust the Holy Spirit in you, we trust that you will choose God's will, whatever it is. It takes a lot of humility for some of us to take a break. That is a virtue friends.

  3. My heart aches for you and your family. My prayers and thoughts are very much with you. "Be not anxious about anything; but in everything, through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6,7. He is the great Physician and nothing is too hard for Him.
