Prayer update

 

Hi church family- 

I hope this finds everyone staying healthy, strong and faithful. This period of time has been filled with such a rollercoaster of emotions... at least for me it has, as I'm sure most everyone else. Let's continue to hold each other up.. in prayer, in encouragement and for physical needs. So many people are hurting right now and I hope we can show our love for Christ by doing what we can for others. 

We're so appreciative for all of the prayers and emails of support for Jose and our family. I wanted to give an update on Jose's health situation. Jose spent 5 days in Yale hospital last week due to a bacterial infection and he was able to come home on Sunday afternoon, thankfully. We were able to have Easter dinner together, which was such a blessing. His leg with the infection is healing nicely but his liver enzyme levels are all over the place. We met with the transplant surgeon yesterday, as the team has expedited the process due to his enzyme levels. The surgeon has given his approval for Jose to be placed on the list for a 2nd liver transplant, which was a big hurdle. We still have to get the cardiologists approval, but we're hopeful he will get on the list. 

Now, due to the coronavirus situation, we really need his current liver to keep functioning as long as possible. The entire country is only performing transplants if patients are in dire need, so that they're not at risk for contracting the virus while being very immunocompromised. There's a fine balance with transplants, where patients need to reach a certain level of sickness to be in line for a transplant BUT they don't want them to be too sick where it makes surgery more complicated. Tough balancing act.

Please pray that Jose's liver enzyme and bilirubin levels come down quickly and that his current liver continues functioning optimally. 

Please pray that when the time comes, Jose to receive a successful 2nd liver transplant and have many more healthy years with our family!

Please pray for Jose's spiritual walk and for all of us to stay strong in faith that our Lord will continue to care for us, as He always has. 

Please pray for all of our fears, anxieties and emotional struggles. They are real and powerful. They do not speak to lack of faith. 

Please pray for this coronavirus to be completely eradicated for all of our sakes.

We pray for all of you and hope to see you all again soon.

Much love and gratitude, 
Kelly

How the Virus (Almost) Stole Easter
By Kristi Bother
 
Twas late in ‘19 when the virus began
Bringing chaos and fear to all people, each land.
 
People were sick, hospitals full,
Doctors overwhelmed, no one in school.
 
As winter gave way to the promise of spring,
The virus raged on, touching peasant and king.
 
People hid in their homes from the enemy unseen.
They YouTubed and Zoomed, social-distanced, and cleaned.
 
April approached and churches were closed.
“There won’t be an Easter,” the world supposed.
 
“There won’t be church services, and egg hunts are out.
No reason for new dresses when we can’t go about.”
 
Holy Week started, as bleak as the rest.
The world was focused on masks and on tests.
 
“Easter can’t happen this year,” it proclaimed.
“Online and at home, it just won’t be the same.”
 
Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, the days came and went.
The virus pressed on; it just would not relent.
 
The world woke Sunday and nothing had changed.
The virus still menaced, the people, estranged.
 
“Pooh pooh to the saints,” the world was grumbling.
“They’re finding out now that no Easter is coming.
 
“They’re just waking up! We know just what they’ll do!
Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,
And then all the saints will all cry boo-hoo.
 
“That noise,” said the world, “will be something to hear.”
So it paused and the world put a hand to its ear.
 
And it did hear a sound coming through all the skies.
It started down low, then it started to rise.
 
But the sound wasn’t depressed.
Why, this sound was triumphant!
It couldn’t be so!
But it grew with abundance!
 
The world stared around, popping its eyes.
Then it shook! What it saw was a shocking surprise!
 
Every saint in every nation, the tall and the small,
Was celebrating Jesus in spite of it all!
 
It hadn’t stopped Easter from coming! It came!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
 
And the world with its life quite stuck in quarantine
Stood puzzling and puzzling.
“Just how can it be?”
 
“It came without bonnets, it came without bunnies,
It came without egg hunts, cantatas, or money.”
 
Then the world thought of something it hadn’t before.
“Maybe Easter,” it thought, “doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Easter, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
 
And what happened then?
Well....the story’s not done.
What will YOU do?
Will you share with that one
Or two or more people needing hope in this night?
Will you share the source of your life in this fight?
 
The churches are empty - but so is the tomb,
And Jesus is victor over death, doom, and gloom.
 
So this year at Easter, let this be our prayer,
As the virus still rages all around, everywhere.
May the world see hope when it looks at God’s people.
May the world see the church is not a building or steeple.
May the world find Faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection,
May the world find Joy in a time of dejection.
May 2020 be known as the year of survival,
But not only that -
Let it start a revival.

Church family- Jose has been admitted to Yale hospital as he developed cellulitis (bacterial infection) in his leg that has not improved with oral antibiotics. They need to do IV antibiotics and monitor his diabetes and liver levels, as those are affected by the infection. Please pray for his healing and that he doesn't have any further complications, especially given the covid19 situation. 

Also, please pray for Jose's only brother, as he has COVID19, and is quarantined at home. His brother has a heart condition from birth that makes him more compromised. Please pray for his healing and that his wife and 15 month old daughter stay healthy.
