Calling All Prayer Warriors

Allison mentioned yesterday that Abby had come down with some sort of virus. The doc said she tested negative for the flu, but he wasn't ruling it out. One sure sign would be if someone else came down with it. Well, Allison woke up this morning with cold symptoms. She seemed fine at first, but by around lunch time she was flat on her back. The doc also indicated that another sure sign would be if Abby's fever continued to climb. She jumped up to around 102.5 today and Allison is right behind her. Abby seems better today despite the fever. We're hoping that the same can be said of Allison tomorrow.

As we inch ever closer to leaving in just under 72 hours, it goes without saying that we're in desperate need of your prayers. Please pray that God will heal Allison and Abby and protect Izzy, Jack and me from getting anything. Should He choose not to answer each of those prayers in the particular way we have asked, please pray that the Spirit will guide us on how best to proceed -- and that He would give us peace about whatever that looks like.

I'm doing all I can to inundate all of our systems with all the right remedies, but ultimately we can do nothing more than pray in faith and trust in God's sovereign plan.
