Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

March 28: Update on Jonatán

This will be a very quick and rather short update: Telegraph Style. (I'm sitting in Marcos' bedroom with a very squirmy almost-five-month-old...)

Please continue to pray for Jona. He has had several rough moments today... Breathing is a constant struggle as his lungs fill with fluid. He did have at least two incidents coughing up "stuff" today, granting some measure of relief. He also has moments when he breathes extremely fast. At one point today, he was breathing fifty times per minute!

Please pray for continued grace and strength for the family  especially as we watch by Jona's side during the night. He rests better, knowing we are there for him.

Please keep praying for extended family. (A list of specific prayer requests is included in the March 26 update.)

Jona continues to be a blessing. We are so thankful for God's extending his time with us. We are trusting our loving Shepherd to do what is best...

I saw him today--what a blessing! I did notice his fast paced breathing but he was his usual self. Always praying!

Thanks for the updates, Deborah. Many hundreds are praying. I have been praying for the things you mentioned and that Jona's homegoing will be gentle and joyful. Asking God to uphold all of you with his grace and peace as you go through these difficult hours.

Love,

Carin
