It was exhausting. We are home now & resting & gearing up for the next battle. Joel's blood pressure has stabilized. He is on medicine now that has helped. We also have a machine here at the house so we can keep up with it every day. Other than that we are just back to the waiting game of waiting for the surgery. Something tells me when this is all said & done I will have learned A LOT of patience :)
I also wanted to tell you about a project that I am working on. Last night as I was going to bed I was thinking about all of the people that have said they have been praying for Joel. In my mind I was picturing a map with little pin points from every state where I know people are praying. That gave me an idea-I would like to try to find at least 1 person in ALL 50 states that is praying for Joel. I want to get a map & put a pin point on every single state where people are praying. What does this mean? Well we have 16 states covered as of today-but we need your help with the other 34. I am going to list below the states we have & do not have. If you are in one of the states that we don't have-would you consider praying with us? If you have a friend that lives in one of the states that we need would you consider forwarding them our blog & asking them to say a quick prayer for Joel? It may sound like a simple thing but when you see it all mapped out it is a powerful testimony to us of all the many people across our nation lifting up prayers of healing for Joel.
States that we have: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, & Washington
States that we need: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin & Wyoming
If you or your friends are willing to pray for us-comment below & give us your state. With your help we can get all 50!!!!
