A Call For Prayer

Edwin received a call on Friday from his mom. She was calling from the hospital. By Saturday, she couldn't call for herself. She has double pnemonia, complicated to such a degree at this point that she is on a ventilator. Yesterday, things seemed close to hopeless. Of course, there is no such thing with the God that we serve. They're trying numerous antibiotics, and she seems better this morning than she did yesterday. The drugs are keeping her unconscious, so she isn't forced to consciously endure the pain of this experience. For this, we are grateful.

Edwin is currently flying to Alabama to be with her and the rest of the family. Please be in prayer that the treatments being used will work, and will work quickly. Pray that Edwin will be safe in his travels. And pray that, above all else, God will be glorified and others will be drawn to Him through this (and every) situation.
