Update and PRAYER REQUEST FOR ABE




I know I failed miserably at the trip updates.  Internet was terrible, I got sick and had a 3 year old to chase after (those are my excuses!) :)  We felt the prayers in a big way though so THANK YOU.
The team was awesome.  Everyone worked really hard and got along great (which in a group of 60 is a pretty amazing!) The dental, medical and vet teams were able to treat many patients.  We actually heard today that several people had suffered YEARS with either skin or tooth issues and are now HEALED! All glory to God.  What a gift to be allowed to serve the people of Ethiopia in this way. Will post pics at bottom.

I also am asking for prayers for my sweet boy! Abe is having a big surgery in the morning on his hips.  They are coming out of socket (a sad reality for kids with his type of CP) and they need to be fixed.  Sadly, the fix for what is going on is a long orthopedic surgery.  It will last between 5-6 hours. My heart just aches for him!  He will actually wake up in a body cast that will remain on for several weeks.  I have heard from numerous people that this will NOT be fun for anyone.......so we really would covet your prayers for him, for us.....

Pray that the surgery goes well, is successful with minimal blood loss
Pray that his pain is managed well in the hospital and once home
Pray that he will not develop any skin breakdown as a result from the cast
Pray for our time as a family over this break!  May we truly focus on the true meaning of Christmas as we are home bound.  Sad for the reason but looking forward to the time with my kids.

Merry Christmas to each of you (not sure if anyone still actually reads this neglected space) xoxo
