Landis prays so sweetly for everyone in our entire family.
Abby is seeing her doctor today. I admit I am a little nervous about what her blood work will show. Abby's white blood cell count has been too high, so they have been increasing her chemo doses. Today we will see if that is helping. I will update you when we get home.
We are going out of town on Thursday. The safest trips for Abby are car trips to places with as few people as possible. Over the weekend we will be around a large group of people at a reunion for kids from Landis's orphanage. The kids are so excited, but I am a little nervous about the crowds. If Abby gets sick while we are gone we will have to take her to a strange hospital, with new doctors. I have been assured by parents whose children are treated in Indianapolis that their hospitals are wonderful. So, while I am out of my comfort zone, I am thankful that there are good hospitals in Indiana if she needs it.
After the weekend, we will be staying at a friend's house. They have a very fun and kid friendly home. It is really the perfect place for Abby to have fun.
Please pray that:
We find the right dose of chemo for Abby.
That Abby is infection free and not bothered by side effects during our trip.
For safe traveling and that our family is able to relax and have fun. We have been running hard for a year. We are looking forward to spending time together away from our home.
Pray for these folks:
Mateo a handsome Guatemalan adoptee, who is battling leukemia. He desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would you please take a minute and read how you can help him. You just might be the person who can save his life.
Feed the Forgotten is working diligently to feed entire villages of starving people. People are literally starving to death. Praise God they have raised $15,113.83. That is enough to provide 107,956 meals! It will provide for 5,398 people food for 20 meals! It is amazing to me that 14 cents will provide a meal for someone in Uganda. This will literally be saving lives!!
There are 3 more villages who need help. Would you pray for the people who are hungry? Pray that people will step forward to feed them and that their orphans would be cared for and loved.

Pray for Me... Pray for Others is where we all get to pray for each other. It is obvious, and we don't pretend otherwise, that we cannot give full attention to every request and comment we receive. This feature on Wednesdays is a time we ask YOU for help praying for others, as they pray for you. Check back a couple of times today for new requests.
Pray for Me... Pray for Others - Instructions:
- Use the form below to enter your prayer requests. You must enter an "identity", and put something in at least one of the "pray for me" or "pray for others" in order to be included (links to blogs are not required).
- If you link to YOUR blog, please include the following HTML in a post on your blog so that we can create a linked network of prayers (your link will allow others to find us, and be able to participate; make sure you are in HTML mode when pasting this code).
- Put out an email or post on your blog and encourage everyone you know to come and join us in prayer.
- Look over the list and pray as God leads. Come back and visit the list two or three times today as it will grow all day long.
Remember... if you don't take the time to pray for others, then on what basis can you really expect God to lead others to pray for you? I created this with "community" in mind - pray for you, pray for me, pray for others - so that we are both giving and receiving as a community which is far more spiritually productive than simply wanting everyone to pray on our behalf.
Truth is, many people do not have a community they can ask for prayer. We hope to become that community for them.
Let me know if you have suggestions or questions about Pray for Me... Pray for Others. If this is a blessing to you, please leave a comment and let us all know.
