Just a word to all of our church family who have been praying for us on this unexpected trip....
Thank you so much for praying. The doctors have determined that my wife's grandfather has had multiple strokes. Considering the fact that he is 95 years old, he is doing amazingly well. He is still aware of what is going on and who we are. However, from any reasonable human perspective, his days are numbered.
It truly is a blessing to face these kinds of situations with a family that is confident in the Lord. In Christ, hope pervades everything.
We would appreciate your prayers for our return trip, as well. We plan to leave tomorrow morning. Hopefully, the weather will be conducive to traveling. As I write this, I am looking out the window of the Kalamazoo Public Library at gently falling snow.
See you on Sunday!
