A New Year's Celebration at Children's.....

Well as we close out 2008, I guess it is only fitting that we spend the the final night of the year in the hospital. Ryan has continued to have a fever, and the source of the infection has been found. Ryan has a bladder infection and it along with the fever has continued to take its toll on his counts. Now that we know what we are fighting, hopefully we can work towards a quick recovery plan. Ryan is not happy about being in the hospital so if you can, please send him a text of encouragement and let him know you are thinking about him.
Hopefully everyone will have a safe and Happy New Year! Let's pray that 2008 is behind us, and that 2009 will be a fantastic year for Ryan and everyone around him.

Ryan- We were sorry that we were unable to see you at your grandma and grandpa's on Christmas Eve. We stayed away because my students blessed me with strep throat and I didn't want to risk passing it on to anyone. I heard that you weren't well enough to attend. I know everyone was disappointed. We spent last night with Barry, Amy, Josh and Alex. It was a very nice evening, but we share in their concern for you. It is 2009, and anything is possible.. Keep fighting and stay strong. You are always in our thoughts and prayers.

Hey Ryan. Been thinking a lot of you. We appreciate you very much!

We sure hope and pray you have a much better year in 09

Here are a couple of verses from God's Word just for you.

" ‘This is the LORD'S sign to you that the LORD will do what He has promised Isa 38:7

And what are His promises?
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2Co 12:9

Ryan, PLease keep the FAith in Jesus Christ. He is our sure hope and peace.

Praying for you.
Pastor Wayne & Evelyn

Ryan, For your New Year, I am praying for health and happiness for you and your family. I think and pray for you and your family at least each day and sometimes more.
I am sure that you are in God's hands and the scripture "I know the plans I have for you" pertains to you and your family.

God be with you,
Happy New Year
