It is that time of the year...

Monday begins the national collection week for Operation Christmas Child!!! Click here to find a drop off location near you! We are truly blessed to have an opportunity to participate in this ministry, and I encourage you to prayerfully consider taking part.

As for Ana, she is doing great! We have appointments in Charleston Monday and Tuesday. Monday, Isabelle has a consult with the ENT and will possibly be set up to have her tonsils out. Tuesday, Ana will have a VCUG, Urodynamics, and a renal ultrasound. Please keep these appointments in your prayers! We are praying that Ana's kidneys are healthy and she will not need to be cathed to urinate. Please also pray for Wednesday!!! Pray that Ana stays healthy and is able to sing in her choir on Wednesday night. She has been waiting all year to sing on stage and last time she got sick at the last minute. I also want to let everyone that Ana will participate in a recording for Heroes on Horseback, next Monday! I will let you know when it will broadcast. And if any of you are looking for a local charity to give to, I highly recommend Heroes on Horseback! They provide therapeutic horseback riding to people with special needs and it is a favorite of Ana's!

Lastly, there is the Christmas Tree. We are begging everyone to make us an ornament. We love to decorate our tree with ornaments made with love by you all! Whether it is from an organization, a family, a club, or an individual... we pray you will consider participating! It brings joy to Ana and the whole family to see how many prayer warriors we actually have! Feel free to spread the word! Ana needs homemade Christmas tree ornaments! We will get our tree the day before Thanksgiving and we will post a picture of the progress each week. We know you guys will come through! If you need to mail it then e-mail me and I will give you the address. Thank you for helping us celebrate Jesus Christ's EARTHDAY!!


  1. Ana looks SO good!!! I am hoping that life has slowed down a bit for you guys!

    Is it bad that I am TOTALLY avoiding the yearly Alam visit? Another VCUG, Urodynamics, Kidney US, Nuclear scan... ugh... to tell us what? her kidneys are shot? Well we already know that! Sigh...

    Say a prayer for me... we are driving to Cleveland Clinic tomorrow for my neurosurgeon!

    Hello family! We miss you very much and can't wait to be back next summer. I will be sending a box of ornaments in the next few weeks. I will be praying for good reports from the doctors and well wishes for the holidays. My love to you all.
