Update on Jonathan #3 and More

Praise the Lord! Jonathan was able to eat one waffle and half of a fried egg today. That is more solid food than he has eaten in the past three days. He says he is feeling really good. His throat is totally back to normal and his gums are looking better also. God is good, all the time!

On our way to church last night it began to down pour so hard that Jim said if Erin hadn't offered to watch one of the babies, we would have just turned around and gone home. I said that with this kind 0f rain that would keep people from coming, it will probably be an awesome service. I was right, we had awesome worship and then the short term mission team that went to Oaxaca to minister in the villages gave testimonies of what God did while they were there. Then we had more worship time. The worship went on and on with people dancing and giving glory to God. Every time Fernando tried to close down, he started up again. Our service that normally goes until about 8:45 went until about 9:30. God is so good! It was the first service I have been able to go to in about a week and a half to two weeks because of Jonathan being sick. It was a great way to begin again.

One of the songs we sang is one that we sang in the states in English It is the cry of our hearts as we raise the next generation for Him.

Break My Heart for What Breaks Yours

I see the king of glory
Coming down the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes
I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing, the people sing

Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

Verse 2
I see a generation
Rising up to take the place
With selfless faith, with selfless faith

I see a new revival
Staring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees, we're on our knees

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause

As I walk from earth into eternity


Thank you to all of you who have so faithfully prayed for our family through this time. We know and can feel the prayers as it has kept our focus where it should be - on the King of kings.
